Hello, it’s worth noting that this is not the first post about this matter, I am aware there were others but they seem very old. I am currently attempting a conversion from Zipato to Smartthings, but I have loads of Zipato devices on the Z-Wave network that I am not exactly ready to throw away just yet, and want to be sure that the migration is at a minimal cost.
I have 4 of these Zipato Combustible Gas Sensors, like the one at this link:
Strangely, I found nothing else about it on the Zipato website. I thought - its purpose being to detect gas and send an alert - that it would be fairly simple and that it would have matched one of the Smarthings built-in DTHs, but apparently not. It is detected only as a Z-Wave Sensor. TO be sure, I tried changing it to a Z-Wave Basic Smoke Sensor - this seemed to work but when I tested (with a gas lighter), the alarm went off on the device but no effect on Smartthings, so in short, it didn’t work. Z-Wave Smoke Sensor (without the Basic) is basically the same.
I had a look a tthe post found here but the original code is no longer on github, and the Homi Gas Detector alternative suggested did not work for me either…
a) Is there anyone who has managed to successfully connect these Zipato sensors? and
b) If not, are there any actual natural gas sensors that have been used successfully with Smartthings? Have to be Z-Wave though.
Obviously, I’d rather get the Zipato ones to work for now, and change them later at my own pace
