So I've read multiple times how much of a pain it is to get the battery to report but that it eventually does. Well, I've been trying for a few weeks without success. What am I missing or doing wrong, does anybody have a better device type for them.
I've got 2 of them, I've tried with the default "Aeon Multisensor" that it first pulls up as, I've tried 2 other custom device types people have posted in here. I've done the whole remove battery, remove cover, I've laid them right on the SmartThings box itself in hopes it was a problem with going through other zwave switches. But nothing I have tried has gotten battery to report. They have been sitting next to the smartthings hub for about a week and every time i look at the App i'm just disappointed
First why is it so hard to get that to report, is the device not sending out that information at all. Are the device types we are using not querying this information correctly? Have they ripped out that ability from the device itself?
Just trying to get these things working before i go throw one up in the attic, heck they make very very nice temperature sensors
As an alternative, does anybody know of any really cheap, reliable temperature sensors? I thought these might work great for a cheap device, but not being able to know battery level is a pain in the...
