Most Popular Contact Sensor elevated by Hubitat in 2021

My gen 5 and 7 aeotec recessed sensors have both been retired. Real shame I never was able to get them to reliably pair and the battery was horrific.

I was able to get my Gen 5’s working well with a generic device and manually forcing the zwave settings I’d been using on my Vera Plus.

They’ve been flawless ever since.


Mine work but have issues with battery reporting, at least on the 5's and sometimes on the 7's.


I have one that doesn’t report battery status, I keep forgetting to send it back under RMA.

I have 4 of these Ring Contact Sensors Gen2 that are a little over a year old and the batteries on all 4 report 100%.
