My first post. I have a “buttload” of smartthings devices in my home. I am very adept at solving problems with these badboys as I have not been in a constant tangle with the system since they made the “move” to the new platform. So I feel I may have missed a critical problem with the Motion Device handlers or Firmware.
I have a few motion sensors that have stopped reporting motion. Upon going through the zigbee discovery they join. However the device’s capabilities never update in the IDE. I get Temperature. That is all. This leads me to believe that the device handler is the issue. I’ve tried several of the assorted device handlers in the IDE I’ve tried custom ones and official. I cannot get these sensors to sense motion. They join and complete what I can see of a handshake given I don’t have the internal IDE event feed that I used to.
Is anyone aware of a problem that is specific to firmware or these (SQUARE motion sensors that have the Little motion sensor circle in the top right corner)? these. Just an FCC Id of 2AF4S-STS-IRM-250?
I had a sensor that was working, then I wanted to re-assign it to a new job. Following the removal and re-addition. The device entered my now small bucket of motion sensors that only report temperature.
I am as familiar as is possible with the common problems with these old sensors. I hope somebody here can shed some light for us. I cannot reliably search the community history but have been at this on and off for a few months.
To summarize my question. (Is there an event in recent history IE the last 2 years or so that caused motion sensors of this variety to lose their minds and only report temperature events and fail to report the device capabilities in the raw handshake exchange?)
Seems DTH related. I can’t buy sensors anymore because they’re discontinued.
Updated to remove the salt.
