Title: Strips Drip not showing up like other leak sensors
Post by: RogerO on July 10, 2018, 11:11:15 am
I just got one of these for under my fridge: https://www.stripsbysensative.com/drip Got it paired okay, but it is not showing the same icon style as my everspring leak sensors.

try to change category_num and subcategory_num from "advanced" menu.
leak sensor is category 4, subcategory 2.

reload luup and CLTR+F5 in your browser.

Think I also need to change the sensor json. It is currently D_GenericSensor1.xml, D_GenericSensor1.json, and urn:schemas-micasaverde-com:device:GenericSensor:1 on the strip leak
and urn:schemas-micasaverde-com:device:FloodSensor:1 D_FloodSensor1.xml and D_FloodSensor1.json on the working one. Will that break anything?

Yes, I forgot about that part.
It's the standard procedure with new device not recognized yet.

Thanks for the tips, it was very useful. On top of these I think the Wakeup interval should be changed to 86400 and polling to never (0) under Settings. These are needed to save battery life. I have the same settings for my door sensors and also recommended here:

When doing these changes the extra devices for light and temperature have disappeared for me. I did not intend to use those anyway so I used config options 4 and 9 to turn off temperature and light reporting - again, to save battery life.
