I recently purchased an Aeotec Water Sensor 6 with Dock as my first water/temp sensor.
It is powered through the dock using an external micro-USB power supply.
I have it successfully operating using the driver that ships with HE 184.108.40.206.
I have a couple of questions related to the temp sensor ...
Forum discussions talk about tempOffset.
I see that this device has tempOffset:0
I do not see a way to control tempOffset through the GUI.
Q: Is the lack of ability to set tempOffset a deficiency in the driver?
Q: Is there a way to set tempOffset by sending commands directly to the unit?
I observe from the logs that the unit generally sends the temp every hour ... generally because sometimes it skips a few hours.
The temp will also get sent if I explicitly press the button on the unit.
I would like to update the temp more than once per hour, but do not see a way to control this.
Q: What/How is the temp update frequency controlled?
Q: Is there a way to "encourage" the unit to update the temp more than once per hour?
I've found sometimes the Hubitat drivers offer basic functionality but a custom community-developed driver provides more. I use the Aeotec multi sensor and have found that to be the case. I did a quick search and found a community driver for the water sensor as well. I don't have one of their water sensors so I can't try it, but here's the link...
