  • Wireless Sensor - Supervisory

    Hey guys,

    I just had another wireless sensor get stuck in "supervisory" mode. It seems that I still am flushing out those bad batch of sensors one by one. Has anyone ever looked into rebuilding one of these sensors or just not worth it?

    "A sensor may get stuck in supervisory mode if a battery goes bad or you replace a battery. Seems a bad batch of these (sensors) went out years ago. I think there is a green or blue cap that signifies the bad batch. I have documentation somewhere."

    I replaced mine with a new one from my stock. Just wondering... pitch or rebuild? ...or what is Matt talking about?

    Good info to have.
    I've never had one fail, but all of mine are from much later than 2006. Since the company had changed hands so many times, I'd guess repairing it is probably your best bet, especially since it's just a cap replacement. What have you got to lose, it can't get any more broken

    The problems I have have are all of my window sensor tamper switches are failing as I suspect the switch contacts have oxidized, so I just bypass them with a solder bridge. The Smoke detectors are also starting to give "Obscurity" trouble alarms, so the primary sensors are probably getting weak.

      Haa. Your correct. It's broken, what is there to lose. I'll see if I can fix and doc for future. Another good reason to try the new soldering iron.

        at least that is your problem... i was getting a supervisory on one of the smokes... still working on the kitchen and... umm figured it out..

        wife bought 2 new hardwired smokes as we have been here 12years and never replaced any of them (not sure why she bought 2 as there are 7 in the house). Then I asked her where is the smoke I took down so I can run recessed lights..

        umm guess where it is.... THE DUMP!!!!! SHE THREW IT OUT!!!!!!!!!! UGHHHHHHHHHHHH

        so deleted it from the panel

          Ha. At least you know now if your missing something else, where it most likely ended up? One good thing is, she isn't a hoarder!
