So unfortunately I have a lot of SmartThings Multipurpose sensors.
The batteries they come with only last a few weeks. Once I replace them, they can go up to 12 months on a new battery.
So I have two questions:
- How do check the status of a battery outside of ST? Is there a tester I can buy? Because I can’t find one that tests these coin batteries and the ST battery status seems extremely unreliable.
- Does anyone else experience the same issues with new ST sensors? Every time the battery dies within 1-2 weeks.
Once replaced, no issues for months and months.
I have about 20 ST multipurpose sensors and 3 motion sensors. Same issues with the 2015 (older) motion sensors.
