Thanks again @njanda for this suggestion. I have just now gotten around to buying it (Option H - Zigbee AU if you’re looking at ordering one). So far it’s just sitting on my kitchen table but it was detected by HE without any issues. I’m using it with the generic Zigbee switch driver and that works perfectly. It’s a pretty strong wee fella.

I’m just waiting for the plumber to come around now to install a mains water valve with a lever. The one he installed to begin with was the knob version. Once he’s been, I’ll be able to test it for real. :slight_smile:

Oh brilliant.
That’s exactly what I’ll have to do - have a plumber install a lever ball valve.
Hard to find a Sydney plumber for such a small job - and do it at a reasonable price.

My plumber hasn’t finished plumbing up the house yet (new house build) so I’ve just tacked it on to that :slight_smile:

Finally a small Australian zigbee plug..(with power monitoring and a repeater)
Not sure if it's already been mentioned or not.
Don't know if we need drivers either.
Got some on order..

Fyi those are reported to not work with Xiaomi sensors just incase that's something you're using or was intending to use.

Where/are people pulling current satalite images of rainfall maps ?
i'd like to have one like the BOM setup on one of my dashboard pages.

If anyone's interested i just picked up some Sengled Element globes at Bunnings for $10 each on clearance.

Which Bunnings?

I've got the BOM weather thing installed but it constantly errors on forecast refresh. Current info seems ok. I dropped darksky because it was miles out.

Are you referring to my BOM driver? If so, I'd like to know what the errors are so I can try and fix them. You can put it as a github issue/or pm me so as not to clutter this topic.

(Just to clarify, my driver doesn't include a rain radar/satellite images as stevebott123 was asking about).

Hey @cometfish, yep I use your BOM drier, I'll direct message you if that's ok, I think it's a BOM issue not your code.

I use this image url on my dashboard "http://www.bom.gov.au/radar/IDR714.gif" it is always the current image for the radar in Sydney and refreshes when the dashboard does (typically) :slight_smile:

Cheers
Steve

Bunnings are definitely getting rid of all their Sengled stuff. Everything is on clearance at all stores by the look. 15 bucks for the gu10s, downlights. 29 bucks for the outdoor spot with sensor.

Do they work well with HE?

I think so yeah. I've only tested one of the downlights so far, but others have tried the gu10 bulbs. Sengleds are HA1.2 Zigbee and they don't repeat (afaik), which makes them good mesh citizens for HE. I grabbed a couple of par38 spots for an outdoor spotlight, they have a motion sensor built in which is nice, so i'll just allow those lights to go on and off as a security light at night, but I can also use the motion alert for other HE automations.

Should add that only the Sengled Element stuff is zigbee, a lot of the stuff is wifi/bluetooth which of course doesn't work with HE.

Bugger. Of course Bunnings would have the GU10 Sengleds on sale while I’m out of the country.
They work great on HE.
They’re simulating me being home :blush::+1:t3:

Must be in-store only - As i cant see them on their website...
29 bucks for the outdoor spotlight and sensor sounds good!

Yeah, they've removed all the Sengled's from online store. So definitely clearing it out. Bunnings are heavily pushing their gridconnect system, so I'd imagine a few of the other brands will likely disappear.

Another WiFi System!!!
