It’s beta because I haven’t tested the fingerprinting yet, I just haven’t had time. If anyone else gets a chance to see if it works, and could let me know I’d appreciate it. Otherwise I’ll just have to try to firstly remember to do it, secondly find the time.
NOTE: The sensor does not report when motion has stopped so there is a timer that will update the status to ‘inactive’ after a set period of time. By default this is 2 seconds, but you can adjust this in the device preferences to whatever you like.
Not as slim as the SmartThings ones. At $21 right now, only $4 cheaper than SmartThings version if you buy a 5 pack and apply the 4th of July + another discount code. I got a 5 pack for $125 shipped. Still these Orvibo ones are not bad for certain use cases.
Can you tell me what you did to display the battery level?
Thanks in advance.
EDIT: I have just altered the code by putting in
capability "Battery " and it is now showing battery level.
Looks like it takes a few minutes before it reports.
Orvibo are sensitive signal strength and do not seem to be able to connect via a repeater. I moved my motion sensors close to the hub and have not had a drop out in almost a year now. One nice thing about the Orvibo though is that they reconnect as soon as they are back in range.
Thanks Chris, I got this thing to work. But wondering if you can do an additional to the code to do a refresh or a keep alive. After a full day of idle I notice it disconnects and I have to trigger a movement but nothing happen until the second time the motion sensor detects movement then it works.
