Okay so some time ago now I had one of my SmartThings Motion Sensors go faulty on me where it constantly reported motion sensed then stopped then sensed and so on even when removed and placed into a pitch black box with nothing else in it and it still did it.
As that sensor was under warranty still it got replaced thankfully.
Roll on a month or so and my second sensor is doing the same but this time out of warranty and SmartThings won’t do anything which I am rather annoyed at because it seems very strange the exact same issue is occurring again. Not only this but the person at SmartThings even said they have had the same issue but they stated replacing the battery solved the problem. I have tried 4 brand new batteries and also batteries from other sensors I have which I know aren’t dead and yet not a single one does anything to fix the problem. On top of that now, today I removed the sensor from my app and tried to add it again but now even with new batteries it won’t turn on at all so it’s totally died.
I understand warranty is only 1 year but SmartThings could do something about this because not only are the new sensors available cheaply but this is the second sensor to do this which I find odd and almost like it’s the norm which it should not be.
Why should I buy yet another sensor only for that to fail because so far that’s all that seems to happen?
