I bought a couple of new SmartSense multi sensors. These are a new design, somewhat different from the ones that I installed maybe a year ago.
They come out of the box with the cover removed. The cover I am speaking of is the front shroud, not the back removable wall plate.
I have two of these, and they both display the same problem: the cover will not snap on.
First, the cover needs to be aligned in a specific orientation so that you will properly install the magnet sensor. If I try to put the cover on with the line in the proper orientation, it just doesn’t fit period. You can push down and there is obviously some plastic inside blocking it.
Okay, possibly the little piece of paper inside is pointing in the wrong direction? If I flip the cover around it does kind of fall into place but it doesn’t lock.
Anyone else have a similar experience with the new sensors? It seems kind of odd that with a second (or maybe later) generation device these little things would not be taken care of.
