I’m looking at all of the water sensor options and was wondering if anyone has tried using the new Wally Home sensors (not the old SNUPI technology ones). They’re zigbee now (I confirmed with their engineers months ago when I was trying to wrangle a “early-bird” discount … and also a job).
I ask because the Iris ones seem to have problems rusting, the Utilitech/Everspring ones I hear have troubles with dropping out, the SmartThings ones are never in stock (and I’d imagine have similar “rusting” issues as the Iris ones), Fibaro ones are WAY too expensive, so it leaves me wondering about Wally.
The Wally ones seem to have temperature, and water (like all of these water sensors seem to), but they add humidity (IMO, really nice … abnormally high humidity would be a nice trigger), and have a proximity switch (odd). They might even have a signal strength capability, but that might have been the older v1 ones. Also, they’re Zigbee protocol, so batteries should last a lot longer (from what I hear).
I need a bunch of them, so I don’t want to pick up 10 of these Wally sensors only to find out they can’t be used.
