Add another vent to this list. The guest bath motion sensor DID have a recently new battery but it went offline because the battery DIED and it was only 6 months new.
@alissa.dornbos if ST is listening, there’s a problem. In the last few years since I moved to all zigbee devices, and I have a ton, I’ve not ever seen this level of instability with devices going offline and consuming batteries like this, ever. I ran great for the last few years until Edge showed up and automations/routines changed. Now I’m having to check my devices every day, my routines are slow, or don’t work at all at times, my hub is flooded with RAW events that never happened before, and I’m getting worried that this is not going to improve any time soon.
Add my Master Bed Tray Lights zigbee switch to the list today.
In the IDE, Last Activity, it usually says within a few minutes or even “a few seconds ago”. I didn’t think about checking the CLI because I’m usually on my Chromebook and I don’t easily have a way to launch the CLI.
Yes, I typically have the cloud strikethrough icon for those devices.
Yes, sorry @nayelyz . The next time this happens and it’s not causing any issues I’ll let you know.
Yup, just Edge-based devices that were migrated. My other Edge devices using non-ST provided drivers have not had this problem.
For this include the behavior expected and how they’re working instead.
Access to your device’s data:
1.Go to the SmartThings Web (my.smartthings.com)
2. Log in to your Samsung Account
3. Select Menu (⋮) and choose Settings
4. Toggle on Account Data Access
5. Select the time period and confirm - In this step, please select “Until turned off”, once the team finishes, we’ll let you know so you can disable it again.
@nayelyz - this is a zigbee metering plug so every change in watts it is sending the raw message. I’d really like to reset this plug, so please advise on if support has when they need so I can fix this.
EDIT. Fixed that outlet, but now here’s another doing the same thing: Sunroom Outlet Right. It’s now offline and sending raw messages to the hub:
@nayelyz, why would routines get disabled when i didn’t do it and none of the devices in those routines weren’t deleted from my hub? I woke up to find 4 routines disabled this morning. I updated my ticket with the names of the routines.
Thanks @andresg. The one thing that sticks out to me is that for both my Zigbee thermostats, Fan Mode is no longer a capability I can select in a routine, and I know that was there because that’s what a couple of my routines were using but now it’s gone. The only place anything fan related is in State, and it’s only “fan only”, not on or auto like it used to be. I hope that helps.
@andresg please investigate battery drain as well. Just had to replace two more batteries that I had replaced less than a month ago. All zigbee devices and rapid drain on most. Leak Sensors are the worst offenders.
FYI @andresg , it just took me 5 times, yes 5 times, to initiate my Goodnight routine and devices still didn’t get turned off. In fact, one of my apps to alert me that doors are left open too long just told me my kitchen frig doors and garage entry door have been open too long. They’re not by the way because I’m looking at them right now and they’re closed.
There is something seriously not working right, I’ve not had this level of instability since the early days of SmartThings, and it all started when the migration to Edge started.
I have been using @Mariano_Colmenarejo ST-Zigbee Moisture Sensor MC Edge driver for months with no battery problems. In setting you can adjust the temperature reporting intervals to help extend battery life.
Leak sensors with temperature information have a reporting setting of 300 sec and a reportable 1° shift.
In practice, this means that it sends reports every 5 minutes with a change of 0.1°.
If you use my driver you can set those reports to an interval of up to 4 hours and the reportable change up to 6°.
In practice, it saves many unnecessary transmissions in a water loss sensor.
For the multipurpose ones, which I think use my driver, you can also adjust the temperature reports.
But the penultimate version had a modification to the acceleration reporting settings that greatly reduced the 3-axis reports.
I’m not talking about sensitivity, use the accel cluster configuration
You can see with the CLI if every 5 minutes it sends the closed or open status only or also the 3-axis one.
If it reports the 2 capabilities every 5 minutes, I advise you to uninstall the sensor and reinstall it, so that the configuration of acceleration reports at 1 hour is carried out correctly. This saves a lot of battery.
