Here’s a device type for the orvibo contact sensor. I’ve flagged as beta as I haven’t been able to figure out how to fingerprint properly yet but seems to work okay for me. So you’ll need to manually assign the device type until that is fixed.
Any help correcting that appreciated!
EDIT: fingerprinting all working fine and heartbeat event added to allow device monitor type apps to know if the device is alive.
My sensor shows OPEN all the time, has anyone else experienced this? The green light flashes when I move the magnet next to the sensor and away, so it appears to be detecting the state on the device, but nothing changes in ST. Any help would be appreciated.
I’ve tried using Open/Close device type and also this custom device type and both act the same.
This probably isn’t it, but just in case, anytime you have a sensor with a magnet that used to work and now isn’t working, it’s worth asking if there’s any metal nearby that might have become magnetized over time. That can throw off the sensor completely.
Pretty sure the battery state works as I have varying levels of battery across the sensors. I have quite a few now. I’ve also noticed the orvibo magnets to very strong compared to the ST ones allowing me to leave a pretty wide gap so it’s surprising.
I’ve had one of my 10 do the same yesterday. Had to reseat the battery. Green light would not even light when I click on the button. After reseating all was okay again. Hope it’s not endemic as I’ve another 10 on order!
And ALL of my devices have recently just dropped and I can no longer control them. I have a v1 Hub, and believe when I say I have tried EVERYTHING to try and regain control of them.
I have no idea how to raise the power level either. I’m also not sure if -2 is average or low power. From what I’ve seen and read this last week as my devices have been dropping, -2 may be a low reading.
