      Hi Hector,
      You can do the same with HS3 as HS2.
      Just reset it as AshaiRey states.

        There is no check on communication failures for a battery sensor.
        If you have an orphan battery sensor with low battery state it will never change this state.
        Hector, I propose to delete the sensor, click Clear Heard on the RFXCOM Security config page and check after 2 Hrs if you can add a battery sensor. Add the battery sensor and after 2Hrs you see the correct battery status as reported by the sensor.

        To hide battery sensors with an OK status:
        - Select "Hide battery sensors dynamically" on the RFXCOM general Config page,
        - Select "Marked Devices Hidden" on the HS3 home page.

        The battery sensor with an OK status should normally have "Hide device from views" selected.
        This parameter is set/reset on a battery sensor state change.
        You can also set this parameter manually on the Device Configuration tab.

        You can also enter the date the battery has been replaced on the RFXCOM config tab for the battery sensor. If you enter an expected battery life you will receive a warning message at mid-night in the Security Message panel some days before the end date.
        If you have enabled warning messages in the NMA configuration you will also receive an NMA message on your Android phone.

          Ok let me recap, if the battery is dynamically hidden, at the moment of a failure will the battery show up in the device page?

            A failure does not change anything!

            A change from battery OK to battery low will deselect the "Hide device from views" parameter in the battery device and this device will become visible on the Home page.

              When does the plugin reset the battery status , when it receives message from device?

I am using RFXCOM and I have one that the low battery doent go away, even if I change battery's . I had my dougths about the ds10a reporting battery status, that why I posted the question.
                Hey Hector,

                I ran into this same issue with a couple of my DS10's. Had to reset them by holding down the button on them for a few seconds and they started working again properly.

                Cheers
