Battery status

I have a lot of xiaomi devices. They're all on battery. I'd use watchdog to keep an eye on how much battery is on, but can't get them to show how much battery is left. I've attached some pictures.
Is there a solution to get them to display battery status?

What drivers are you using? I recommend @markus drivers. In any event battery can take a while to register the value, be patient, and remember the battery reports are not very reliable, at all.
From 100% to dead. I've seen it many times. It dues to a few things, Lithium discharge curve and device firmware.

And great. Will they tell me to replace my driver to them @markus have? Or what do you mean? It is 3 months since I have created my xiaomi devices.

I'm using the drivers by @markus, but if I'm remembering correct the battery level also was shown even with the drivers by @veeceeoh as well. To change driver is something that needs to be done manually, but the initial installation can be handled by using HPM or Hubitat Package Manager.

On top of this, I have created custom rule inside Hubitat Safety Monitor looking like this:

Okay, I'll try his drivers. Sounds like they work. How do I find them? I'm new to HE. I come from smartthings.

The drivers by @markus will be found here: [Release] Xiaomi / Aqara / Opple Drivers with Presence!

Due to the fact that you already seem to have the devices in Hubitat, I assume that you know how to install the drivers even though it differs slightly from SmartThings. :wink:

Yes, you're right :slightly_smiling_face: it was more the place where I found the right drivers. I'll take a look. Thx

Sorry, I didn't realize you've had them connected for months, as I didn't read a create date. In any event I'd guess the capability was not picked up on pairing. I would load Markus's driver and re-pair the device. Although possibly hitting intialize after switching to markus driver may bring in the battery reports

And it did! Thank you very much for the help :+1:
