Update: 11/07/19, using SmartThings hub, a week later... units were having problems not responding or extremely late in notifying open/close action. One unit "sticking" in to open position while another one was "stuck" in the closed position. I performed the following in an attempt to solve:
- changed from small to large magnets (even though the contact distance is suitable for the smaller magnet)
- unpaired and repaired the door sensors to the hub
- perform Z-Wave Utilities "Repair Z-Wave Network" with all devices in permanent location
All door sensors are very close to other Z-Wave devices (door locks and light switches within a few feet), so there should be no hub communication issues. All units were responding correctly after network repair... will advise if continued failure occurs, wherein these sensors would be totally useless for intrusion detection.
Update Nov 20th 2019... I’m still having issues with the two sensors that have older version firmware (v1.02). One door sensor indicates “unavailable” every morning, even though it does respond to an open/close event, while the other sensor seems to stick “open” when the door is closed. The second set of two sensors with newer firmware (v1.03) appear to be working just fine. I really like the footprint of these sensors and want to make them work correctly, therefore I will be forced to purchased the AeoTec z-stick so I can update the firmware (at $45 from Amazon, that effectively increased my per unit cost another $11+ each)! Therefore lowering my rating from 3 stars to 1 star until I can get all four sensors working as advertised.
If you push the sensor all the way into the corner of the door or window frame, you may have difficulty removing it to recharge it or press the action button. As you have to slide the device towards the frame to remove it from its mounting bracket. Drop the sensor as low as possible near the fixed edge (the edge that is always next to the frame, even when open) of the window or door. They provide a large and a small magnet, use the larger magnet on the edge of the sensor that you dropped down for removal clearance, and the smaller magnet on the other edge. Then when you open the door or window, you should be able to remove the sensor. The manual doesn't mention this in the install instructions, and it may cause you to have to remount if you're not careful.
This site rates the battery life lower than the manufacturer does, so I'm interested in seeing how long it actually lasts.
I lowered the rating by a star because the battery life isn't very great. I usually get less than 3 months on a charge, and I only use the door twice a day on average. I would give it three stars for the low battery life, but I decided to leave one on because it is rechargeable.
Battery only lasts 2 months tops, that's with a door that has 2x per day open/close cycles.
Add to the hassle of USB recharging where you take it down for 4+ hours, and it's just not a long term device.
Really wished it lasted as long as the marketing insisted...
So far I highly recommend it.
For people who are interested. I am using smartthings as my hub. It was easy to connect took about 1 min following instructions. Charging the device to 100% takes like 15-20 mins using ipad adapter.
These sensors are less noticeable then the typical pill style sensors, but they are too large to fit on a window
