I’d like to use one of my Xiaomi Aqara water leak sensors as a water level sensor in a certain water tank (if you’re curious – the water tank that feeds my chicken coop’s automated drinking vessels).
The problem is that the SmartThings Android app (the new app) instists on sending me a notification every time that sensor is “wet”, despite the fact that the particular sensor is not selected in the SHM settings. I made sure to select there only my other leak sensor that is indeed intended to detect leaks.
This problem prevents me from proceeding with the next step of my plan, which is to set up an automation that will issue a notification when the sensor is “dry”, which is when the water level in the tank goes below the sensor’s contacts.
Any ideas why I’m getting those leak alerts for an unselected leak sensor?
