HSM Battery Alert

Got a low battery alert today. HSM said "ALERT!" in Red, along with the 15% level of the device.
After changing the battery, the red alert didn't go away, but just changed to say 100%. Had to cancel it manually. Seems like the alert should automatically clear after changing battery, yes?

Picky picky! LOL. jk. I've never actually seen one. Good to know it actually works!

Yeah it was definitely the highlight of my day :slight_smile: Just seemed weird later when it said "ALERT! Battery is at 100%!" :laughing:

It just wanted to make sure you knew....just in case. :wink:

You must click cancel, no auto canceling feature.

Actually I seen a lot of those alerts, ST presence sensors suck batteries like crazy.

HSM by design wants you to take affirmative action to cancel an alert once it is triggered.

I created a rule in RM to auto-clear custom alerts after a short period of time. Most of mine are for presence events, contact sensors, etc. so I rarely need the alert to persist, and this was the easiest way I could think of to clear the alerts automatically.

Would you mind sharing your rule?

Sure, pasted below.

The capability HSM alert has several options, by choosing β€œrule” that seems to be the custom alerts.

Thanks very much.
Didn't realise it was that easy.
I've never played with this side of HSM before.
Thanks again.

The HSM battery level option is a nice feature. I think also adding a column under devices that shows battery percentage would be helpful also.

I setup a battery alert in HSM but I haven't received any alerts and one of my batteries is showing 1%. Where does the alert show?

Did you setup an sms or pushover notification in the HSM alert settings?

Hi @pcgirl
This is my HSM custom alert and it sends me a pushover notification when the battery level falls below 30%.
I know it works as it send me an alert today. :smile:


Yes, I do have a push notification setup for the HSM battery level.

Actually, I just checked the motion sensor and it says the battery is 20% so no wonder I haven't received an alert!:stuck_out_tongue: Says 1% in ST??

At least you know why. :slight_smile:

You'll be lucky to ever see a 5% battery. My devices always seem to get to 20-30% and die. I have my HSM battery alert set at 33%.

I agree you're unlikely to see 5% battery level but hey, give it a go.
Mine is set to 30% :slight_smile:
