Sweet, now if they would just make the other button available at Lowes. My Lowes has a bundle that includes it but not just the regular button. I may have to pick up this Care Pendant but was holding out for the other one.
I’m not sure, but I think that would require some work on ST’s end (maybe once the official support comes)
I would try resetting the fob and adding it back, after adding and publishing the device type in the IDE of course. It’s not going to work correctly if you manually change the type since it won’t be configured.
What are you currently using the care pendant for? I feel like it’d be useful as an arm/disarm the security system. Could keep it right next to the bed that way you could easily arm the system when you go to sleep and disarm it when you wake up.
It already says it’s a presence sensor. Adding the capability to the device type is not going to change the battery usage.
There are many different ways to do presence sensors, and I don’t know how Iris does theirs, but SmartThings is really basic. It’s just counts the amount of time since the last check in. There’s no exit event.
Since all Zigbee devices check in occasionally it’s really just going to come down to whether the checks are often enough that SmartThings recognizes it is present.
You can change that parameter in the IDE somewhat, I don’t remember the exact settings.
But I’m pretty sure giving it that capability just tells SmartThings to track the check-in’s. Shouldn’t change the device behavior.
Ok, so I tried adding the capability, a tile/state entry for presence to the Smart Fob (which also touts presence capability on the Lowe’s site), and relevant code in parse(), but no dice. Parse never gets a presence message so the state never gets updated. I pulled the batteries overnight: no messages in logging and no state change.
I’ll play around with it a bit more (leaving it on, but taking it to work, etc.), but it’s not looking like it’s that simple.
Is that the white button or the red? There’s a device type for the red Care Pendant already. I’ve been trying to get my hands on the white single button, but no luck. I would assume that it’s closer to the 4 button in operation, but I have no idea. If you have one, can you pair it and post the device entry for the “raw description” or the endpoint/cluster listing from the event log?
