I purchased 2 of the iris motion sensor. They work very well, the only problem that I am seeing is that the battery is not lasting. I only have had them for 2 weeks and they both are showing 77% battery. Do you think it’s the battery that comes with it or maybe it’s being reported wrong. If anyone has a solution please chime in.
Some of these devices report in 1/9ths of battery life (I’m assuming it’s the device and not SmartThings). 77% is 7/9 (it should round to 78%, but it doesn’t).
My oldest of these sensors is just 6 weeks old and BatteryMonitor shows it is at 77% also. All my others report 88%. It’s too short a period to really tell how long the (single CR2) battery will last.
On a different note, one of my 6 Iris Motion Sensors just failed – it was reporting motion constantly. It was still updating the temperature, but it was stuck on motion for 3 days. I’m exchanging it tomorrow.
Is the second one just the newest version? I ask because I need to get a bunch to integrate so if I can save any $$ I would like to but I don’t want to sacrifice features since I am currently using the v2 without any issues (well none after John helped me out .
@Expose, all of my Iris motion sensors are using the “SmartSense Motion Sensor”, and they are running locally.
We’re experiencing a total Century Link outage in my neighborhood right this moment, and I’m quite pleased to say all my smartlighting automations are working just fine that are designed to run locally, including my sunset ones.
Just picked up my first motion sensor and got this iris v2 sensor, it paired with ease. I’m using it to control two hue white bulbs in in my stairs and atop the stairs. It seems to be working quite well with the stuff I setup in the smart lighting app.
