In general I am very happy with the Xiaomi sensors as they are working accurate and are barely consuming any battery life.
Although I have an issue that a three of them (2 motion and 1 door sensor) lost heir connection and are showed as unavailable in the app. The strange thing is that in the first 3/4 weeks after pairing they were working fine.
- Is there a way to have them reconnected automatically or is the only possibility to pair them again?
- What is the cheapest zigbee extender which I can use to extend the range for my Xiaomi devices?
I would like to have Xiaomi door sensors on my car to use it is an auto alarm but I assume this will not work because when I leave the door sensors will be disconnected and when I arrive (back in range of the hub) they will not be automatically re-connected. Or does anyone has a solution for this?
I tried the Samsung presence sensor before but the issue with that sensor was that when it misses one time the communication with the hub the hub will think the presence sensor is out of range and will trigger the alarm.
