Title: Z-Wave.me iTemp battery status problems!
Post by: cw-kid on January 27, 2015, 07:25:54 am
Hi

I have a Z-wave.me iTemp (http://manuals.zwaveeurope.com/make.php?lang=en&type=&sku=ZME_MTEMP) device in my lounge which I also wired up the dry contact to my existing door bell (http://thedigitallifestyle.com/w/index.php/2013/08/20/how-to-z-wave-your-existing-wired-doorbell-with-vera/) to make it Z-wave enabled.

It works but the battery level status in Vera UI5 (V1.5.622) never seems to work properly. It is usually grey with a question mark next to it.

I used two AAA rechargeable batteries in the device, when I put newly charged ones in the battery status will change to orange and be OK for a while but then really when ever I look at the device in the Vera web UI its gone grey again with the question mark.

The device still appears to be working when the battery status is grey as I still get door bell button press notifications etc.

Anyone know what the problem is?

Thanks

Interestingly it does say battery level is 35% on the Settings tab

This seems to have solved the issue with the battery status showing a question mark.

In the device options tab I entered 1 in the Send Unsolicited Battery Report. Since then the battery status has always been displayed OK.

However the temperature sensor on this device seems not to work very well and is always off on it temp readings.
