Has anyone experience using the GB00Z Glass Break Detector with Smartthings?
they seem to be junk. I paired 2 and they both silently never reported again. I haven’t dug into it.
LATER EDIT: I checked IDE status that indicated the one I left installed, is still ACTIVE less than 30 minutes ago. But the last LOGGED activity was when I paired it 284 days ago, and battery still indicates 100%. So as a security device, I do not believe is reliable. I was not able to trigger it with my normal methods for glassbreaks. I haven’t tried breaking a window on it. Maybe I’ll power it with reduced voltage and see what happens.
I have not found any real glassbreak alternative in Zwave domain. I don’t want a shock sensor.
Any good alternatives?
I have one. It was a PITA to pair but I got it to eventually with a device handler that’s available on the forum. Then I was able to test it with the silverware-in-a-glass method and it seemed to function just fine. No one has tried to break into my house (or smash the window for other reasons) since then. So I can’t say for sure whether it’ll work if that ever does happen.
I recently purchased one of these glass break detector. I was wondering what DH did you use? I tried looking around, but I couldn’t find anything… is the DH specifically for the glass detector or a universal detector?
The Utilitech Wireless Glass Break Security Sensor Iris Zwave 0567900 GB00Z-1 and GoControl GB00Z-2: Smart Glass Break Detector are the same device manufactured by Nortek and you need the Device Handler available here: https://github.com/shackrat/SmartThings-by-Shackrat/tree/master/devicetypes
thanks for the clear github directory name.
Have you ever gotten a good physical test alarm from this thing? Not me not once. Battery finally updated to 75% sometime in the past 3 months.
I cannot create any new devices in IDE today. It says " Access Denied
We’re sorry, but you are not authorized to perform the requested operation."
EDIT- the next day, I was able to login to IDE and add a simulated device as expected.
