    the reset btn only affects the hs devices but not the actual insteon device. put in a new battery and wait for it to read the new voltage and then put in the old battery. this should trigger the low battery sensor.

    Event screen shot attached.

    Well, I have at least one battery low enough to trigger the low batt signal and it is in the sensor now. If I reset the low batt device in HS, then remove/re-insert the battery, will the low batt message get sent to HS again?

  • Hidden door sensor low batt warning changes status to Open

    Hi Mark,

    I have an event that fired in the middle of the night at the same time this hidden door sensor's low battery warning was changed to On.

    The even that triggered is based on this:

    Door Sensor: Status has been Open for exactly 2s

    The door was closed and locked. HS must have thought it was closed prior to this low batt warning given the "exactly 2s", right?

    I know we've had conversations about this and regular open/close sensors in the past. This issue seems similar to a different issue I had but I thought I should start a new thread.

    I don't know how to capture logs and troubleshoot something like this given how long it takes for batteries to die. Are there any tricks to get that signal to fire repeatedly?

    Thanks!
Working...
