I know that @Alwas has played integrate the sensor with the home light. This is a very excellent idea.
I come across the following video from my Youtube feed. It is an eye opening. Please allow me to give some context.
Here is a Canadian reporting on car theft. It is not as sexy as “Gone in 60 seconds”. But, it is quite an eye opening. Many cars are stolen under the watch of our camera. Some cars are stolen right in front of our house. In addition, how easy a modern car is broken into and stolen. On top of all that, one of the comments that stick to me is that they find out the car is gone in the morning. I link it to the part that is start to interesting. The whole video is very well put together. If you have time, it is probably worth to watch in whole.
I hope using this sensor I will have better chance to reduce the crime. My sensor may not be able to prevent a car is being stolen. However, it can help to deter the crime with the motion and shock sensor integrated with the home lighting. If the car is stolen anyway, I hope to know about that in matter of minutes versus hours after the crime in the morning. I hope I am giving my car and myself a fighting chance
If you like to have them boxed, this version has a couple options. I have a 3D printed case here. You can also purchase the aluminum case here. The aluminum case also has tendency to run out of stock. You just have to search it on aliexpress. The color is pink with size 23x44x60mm.
I will considered ODB port in the future. I did looked in to the ODB port to get better integration with the car. Let see how the project take me.
For now, I am not sure if you looked at a couple thread above about the car theft in Canada. I don’t feel the ODB port is as hidden as it should be. I am looking to hide the sensor in the couple cars I have on my driveway. I am hesitant to put the sensor on the ODB port. It is seems with the modern car the ODB is the key ingredient to steal your car. I feel better putting my sensor at location that is independent from the said port.
Thanks to @Mariano_Colmenarejo, we have an update to the edge driver. The update is basically to support the released sensor device id. There are no functionality changes to the driver. The new driver should be compatible with all the devices that I have shipped in the past. Therefore, you should be able to upgrade your driver and use it with the released and prototype sensors.
The new edge driver is available from the first post. Please double check the driver info. Driver Id is c9631ca7-a9bc-4a5b-aaac-9fecb18941e6.
If this is the first time you install the driver, please go trough the pairing process after you have installed the driver. Once the arrival sensor is found, please make sure to stay in the page where the device for at least a couple minutes.
This is the last driver date: 2022-04-18T18:58:35.074414
It will have been automatically updated to all users on April 19

@gdevaan, Yes. I do have some sensors available at the moment.
The cost of the sensor is $29+$5 shipping to any USA address. I can ship up to 5 sensors in a box.
In order to fully assembled you will need the following parts.
RP-SMA 2.4 GHz 50ohm antenna. You can find this type of antenna from old/unused WIFI routers. I can also supply the antenna pictured above. The cost of the antenna is $5 each.
Optionally, you may want to install the radar motion sensor. I have some available. The cost is $5.
You will need a JST PH 2.0 LIPO 3.7V battery with capacity around 300 mAH. Here is an example. Please note, I linked battery like this in the past. After a while, they have tendency to get out of stock. Please use this link just as an example. There are abundance of the battery.
I use my sensor with case. I have a 3D printed case here . You can also purchase the aluminum case here . The aluminum case also has tendency to run out of stock. You just have to search it on aliexpress. The color is pink with size 23x44x60mm. Please note that aluminum case does not work with Radar motion sensor.
Please let me know whether you can PM me. I can give you my Paypal on PM. I also need your shipping address when you are ready.
Hi. I have two of the original arrival Sensors. PGC410EU are these supported with Edge Drivers?.
I’m trying to get at least one of each device working with an Edge driver and then hopefully the others will migrate smoothly.
Thanks @Mariano_Colmenarejo planning on spending a day going through all my devices. I’ve collected so many different versions over the years. I want to make the process as simple as possible in September
This is brilliant. Any chance you can get one to the UK?
The old arrival sensor that ST used to make was brilliant, did the job great for people who couldnt use a phone or didnt have a phone. I really dont know why they didnt continue that product.
Also ive found that geo location on the phone is good but is sometimes over sensitive or delayed. The old keyfob arrival sensor just worked when you got to your house.
I had loads but they were so fragile. I spoke to ST and they said they have no plans to ever develop them again despite consumer feedback.
Id be interested if you can get one this way.
I think I may have missed posting here. I made a 3D printed cases for the sensor. The 3D printed case is design if you need to use the microwave radar. I believe I mentioned that there is an off the shelve case that is made of aluminum. The aluminum case will not work if you have microwave radar.
