What is the question that you have about this device? And lets be clear with what you mean by "wired". You mean a remote temperature sensor from the body of the sensor. Are you asking if this device will work with Hubitat?
because most (just to don't say all because I found one) zigbee temperature sensors are wireless, NOT in the sense of wireless communication (obvious, zigbee is a wireless communication protocol), but wired of the sense that the sensor itself is wired to the communication module.
If I need to know the temperature of a water tank, I need to put a wired sensor (ds18b20, RTD, PTxx, etc) inside of the tank (because I can't submerge the temperature module, aka sensor and communication chip, into the tank). That's the advantage of what I called a wired temperature sensor.
And I didn't find any zigbee "wired" temperature sensor since today and I wanted to share this with you, like @zarthan wrote.
There was no question mark at the end of my post, but I assumed (and if not, somebody will deny this) that this kind of sensor should be recognized as a generic zigbee temperature sensor without any custom device written specially for HE.
If you know other zigbee wired temperature sensors, feel free to share, I'm highly interested !
I don't see anywhere on the device's webpage that mentions ZHA (Zigbee Home Automation)...just zigbee. Zigbee is a set of frequencies. Just because a device uses Zigbee doesn't mean it will work with Hubitat. The device would have to support ZHA (or in the case of Zigbee 3.0, fall back to ZHA) in order to work with Hubitat. So, I would find out for sure one way or the other before buying one.
Correction: On the device "brochure" it mentions ZigBee Pro Home Automation 1.2, so yes, it should be compatible with Hubitat. Whether it would use the Generic driver would depend on what info is sent back and forth from the device.
And as far as "wired" vs. "wireless"...the easy way to distinguish this sensor is that it has an "external probe". That is probably more accurate a description than "wired'.
No...most of the temp sensors in HA are almost "add-ons" to existing devices, such as with motion sensors or contact sensors. And in my experience, most of them are not all that accurate either. So, they're only useful for rough estimations. Nothing requiring that level of accuracy.
Anybody found a Zigbee or Zwave temperature sensor that supports a remote temperature probe such as the one in the OP? I want to monitor HVAC duct temperature. I have some RTD duct temperature probes but would rather NOT go custom with a Arduino or RPi setup.
I have semaphore tbox plc's, running as masters (TCP/IP). Hooked to modbus slaves for the sensors
I have a windows machine with node-red and mosquitto installed.
Node-red polls some modbus addresses and send them (regularly or on change) to mosquitto.
The (alpha5 yet) MQTT App from @kevin manage the MQTT messages and dispatch them to HE virtual devices.
I can retrieve temperatures, energy level (int16), relays (coils) etc and display them in dashboards and/or use them in rules.
I also tried to send successfully commands from HE to modbus using the same channel and activate/deactivate relays.
I need to optimize this by loop polling and sorting the result. But the result is there
