Check for reviews… Last time I checked, they weren’t very good/sturdy
I had one of these a while back and found it to be horrible… horrible enough that I returned it.
My advice, get a zigbee repeater and put it fairly close to it. Also, have your automation send
the on and off commands several times.
Good luck and I hope it works good for you.
For $10 I’ll try it. I would think one of the biggest issues is getting a zigbee signal outside as @bamarayne mentioned which for me shouldn’t be a issue. My outdoor faucets just happened to be on exterior walls that have zigbee plugs within 5 - 6 feet on the interior wall.
I bought one for $20 last year and have it connected to my Iris hub. It works fine for simple timed watering and starting and stopping as needed.
I just picked up another one for $10. I thought with a Y adapter, I can have it set up to start watering an area and then switch over to another hose to start watering a second area. Would it be easier to just drag the hose to a new spot? Probably, but what is the fun in that.
mine paired only once. how do you pair it as two devices?
You pair it once as Zigbee outlet and then again as Z-wave device. There are 2 separate radios in it.
Anyone need water sensors? I’m heading to lowes over lunch and they have several more at $9.75.
I’d love to get 2 or 3!
Are you talking about item #782303?
That’s the one!
Just PM me, I’ll pick some up for you. We can work out the shipping details etc, not needing to make a profit really, just figured I could help someone out.
I got a couple Utilitech flood sensor for $7.5 each. I also got one Iris water sensor too.
Morning - anyone have any motion sensors that you got on sale that you are looking to sell? Only looking for two. If so, message me so we can work out the details.
I picked up two GE toggle dimmers (12729) for $17.20. I only need one. Pm me if you want the other. Not looking for any profit.
I was in a local store this morning and they had the $115 Iris Automation pack on clearance for $15:
I found it in the Iris section. I stopped by another store and the price was $115 so this could be a store by store clearance. Worth checking though!
Holy smokes, that is a heck of a deal!
All $115 around me
I would love a water sensor or 2. I can pay someone for them. My lowes does not have any.,
This is why it’s been on clearance!
