A general question for others in northern climates. I have 150 devices or so, and a good number of these are contact sensors on doors and windows, etc. I mention the total devices to show I have a pretty solid mesh going on for zigbee and zwave with good amount of repeater devices.
All summer and fall they all work, never have much issue. Winter arrived and we didn’t look at windows for 3-4 months…and now I notice half of these zigbee sensors “fell off” and require me to reseat the battery to come back alive…so the battery is good as well.
Should we do some polling once every 3 days or so or something to ping these things back to life? I understood they would check in on their own once in a while, so I am completely unsure when they fell off. Or should I chalk it up to ST and their issues? Just wondering what others have for thoughts.
70 degree spring weather will get you looking at your windows again!
