What is everyone using for a contact sensor that lasts the longest as far as battery life?
I’ve have about 15 Iris contacts, 15 SmartThings, and 1 Ecolink Zwave.
Iris lasts about 6 months.
SmartThings last about 4-6 months.
And the Ecolink is still going for about 2 years.
The Iris and SmartThings sensors are mixed between windows and doors with some windows never being opened but still needing to be replaced after a few months. The Ecolink is opened at least once per day and it is also the farthest from the hub. I experimented with batteries too, thinking I was just getting cheap batteries but have similar results.
Is the Ecolink just amazing or what am I missing?
