  • Fibaro motion sensor, battery update

    I'm just wondering. I have 2 fibaro sensor as you can see. They work as they should for now. But as you can also see the battery is not beeing updated. Why is this? How can i get it to update more often than that?
    Reason is that i tweaked one of them to be more sensetive in the kitchen. So i would like to know if i will be able to have the batterylife for 1month or 1 year this way.

    Right now i don't know how much battery there really is on them

    The "last Change" column is just that - the last time the column changed. Not the last time the value was sent by the sensor. It's been reporting 88% probably a few times a day but it's always been the same so HS3 says it has not changed.

        Not necessarily . Most of these battery powered devices don't have very good circuitry to measure the battery so take the readings with a "grain of salt". It can stay on that level for a long time and then all of a sudden be much lower. I have some devices that have been reporting 0% battery level for a few months, yet they are still working. I'm waiting to see how long it takes before they die.

        Cheers
