I need a recommendation for a multisensor with usb connection and good range that i can put in my bathroom. Iineed motion, temp and humidity.
This is the kicker... I also need to be able to configure to not be TOO chatty the aeon 6 ver6 and later all do not seem to honor the reporting intervale and report every 30 secs to 1 minute.. i dont need reports that often..
thanks in advance..
need one that is not built into a swich that i can attach to wall.
I thought you wanted USB? Although that doesn't solve the "chatty" problem, it wouldn't be a concern.
Inovelli said they were having short supply of lots of things. Maybe this will come back into stock soon?
I don't like Zwave for motion, I have had too many "iffy" experiences with them. They either are slow to respond, or like you mention chatty, or they suck down batteries. Maybe that is just what I have tried?
Personally I like the Iris V3 motion. The batteries last forever, they are responsive and sensitive without being too chatty. They are also fairly inexpensive compared to other options. In general, I think Zigbee are much better for motion or multi-sensors than Zwave.
I had the same opinion for a while. After hearing good things about em I finally caved and picked up 5 of them. No regrets... They work better than expected. I use them in the bathrooms to control the vents and lights.
not impressed with the nyce sensor.. first one will not report temp with any frequency.. once the temp is not changing much it doesnt report it till there is motion then suddenly there is a big change, so obviously its not reporting.
got a replacement and this once is not reporting humidity changes.. ran a shower other one went up to 57% as it should,. the new one stays at 33% checked till there was motion then suddenly jumped to 42 but still too low.
they are mounted right next to each other
guess i can keep one for temp and one for humidity.. lol .. i dont think so .. too expensive..
