Yeah the micros weren't too bad. It only took 3-4 tried to get ea to pair up, but the behavior seemed backwards from the instructions. That is, I pressed the button on the device to exclude it, and then toggled the switch 10x to get it to join HE. The instructions suggest it should be the other way around.
Also frankly 2 out of 3 of the recessed door sensors ended up "working". Working in quotes because I suspect they'll still have the intermittent wrong state problem. I never could get them to join in insecure mode.
What finally seemed to work was resetting by holding the button for 20 sec, until they were just flashing red, indicating un-paired. I then removed the batt for several minutes, put it back in and double clicked to join. If I didn't remove the batt and wait a double click would just start the lazy un-paired flash again. Waiting a few minutes then double tapping caused it to join again.
After the device joined it still doesn't work, at least initially. It reported state but the state wouldn't change. Waiting 20-45 minutes and eventually 2 of them started reporting state correctly. As for the third, the button broke off so it seems to be toast. I tried shorting across the traces with a wire to simulate the button but it didn't work.
If they'd just seriously document some of these behaviours it would go a long way towards mitigating my impression of their product.
The micros generally work OK, but I also seem to recall some dumb annoyances with those as well. Something like... you couldn't wire them with standard 14 gauge cuz it wouldn't fit, so I had to go find some other non-standard jumpers to wire them up with? It was something like that. Just silly oversights. You collect enough of those oversights and gotchas in one product and my impression of the company behind it goes down the toilet.
This is my house and I'll eat the time to get this stuff working, but I'd never use their products in an install I had to support. I just think an actual product you're selling to people needs to be BETTER than this.
I also have a couple of multi-sensor 6's and seem to recall spending hours trying to get those tuned correctly to not eat through batteries as well. Eventually I gave up and hard wired them with usb.
