Previously, I had Samsung Smart Things Water/Leak Sensor and it worked flawlessly. Batteries lasted over 1 year and never had issue with signal/inaccurate battery readings/etc in my old house.
Now I have the Hubitat setup in my new house with 20 Zooz water leak sensors and the cell batteries are not lasting, the signal isn’t consistent/reporting regularly and I am trying to figure out if it is a system setup issue or if these really suck.
Does anybody have any suggestions how to isolate the issues? Any reports of these sucking down battery and poor function? I went through all of them today and tripped the moisture sensors to check the battery life/test the signal.
About 25% needed new batteries after 2 months.
Could it be that I don’t have enough repeaters and that is draining the battery/affecting the signal? Yes.
Could it be that these are junk products? You tell me.
That is why I am asking for your feedback. It is either that my system is messed up or these don’t work very well.
Thanks in advance.
