Well it’s Monday morning and I see nothing. Still chasing those aliens?

Someone must have cursed the delivery (not pointing any finger here :smiley: ), there’s a customs-related delay but we hope tomorrow or Wednesday we’ll finally receive them. We’ll keep you guys posted!

Not pointing any FINGER (not fingers)?

We know you are blaming E.T.

Just to be safe is the USB micro b or c?

#68

It’s micro B, we sell 2 types of cables and adapters here:

Is there any reason to pull the battery and pull tap if running on usb?

#70

Not really, you can leave it as is if the battery is not activated.

It depends…

If it’s included using the normal procedure described in the manual then it can be powered by USB or battery. Leaving the batteries in so it continues working during a power failure can be useful, but only if your internet is on a battery backup.

If the device is included as a repeater it can still run on batteries, but it will most likely burn through them in a matter of hours so I wouldn’t bother keeping them in the device.

Have zooz 4 in 1 and the new 18’s. Under sensitivity one has 1 as least and the other has 1 as most. Guess it could be true but suspect not. Is 4 in 1 wrong or are they really opposite each other?

(Kevin) #73

They’re completely different devices… The handlers match the manuals and I doubt the manuals are wrong.

#74

ZSE40 and ZSE18 have different settings and the sensitivity values are reversed. They also have separate handlers to match the settings.

(Jim Gaudette) #75

So after zse18 params are set up what’s the best dth to run local?

(Kevin) #76

If you’re not using it for vibration then use the Z-Wave Motion Sensor handler. I just checked its code and it has the ZSE18 fingerprint in it so the battery reporting and motion detection must work.
