I have a couple of these sensors that I would like to use in my bathrooms to trigger the exhaust fan to operate during periods of high humidity. I am using the built-in driver, but am finding that regardless of the selected RH change trigger setting the sensor doesn't report changes very often (more than 5 min between reports). Am I doing something wrong or is this a limitation of the device?
I've come to that conclusion, thanks @krlaframboise, I think I'm going to try the Aeotec Multi-Sensor 6 with USB power, from what I understand it allows adjustment of report intervals as low as 30 seconds when powered by USB. Also I understand Zooz has a "V3" of their sensor coming out soon that will have a USB power option and adjustments for report intervals.
If the Humidity level doesn't change it can go a couple hours without reporting humidity. But if the Humidity changes (like taking a shower) it will report within 5 minutes of the change.
The problem I had with my Zooz 4-1's is they wouldn't report humidity at all if motion was "active" it would only report if motion was inactive, which defeated the whole purpose of using the sensor as "4-1" occupancy sensor with humidity. So my "turn on fan" rule only ran after the shower was over and you have left the bathroom.
Well then... that's an interesting decision by the Zooz product team.
I don't need temperature reporting... don't even need LUX. I wish I could disable those features in order to save battery power, and instead force the sensor to report humidity more often so automating the fan is actually worth the trouble (and cost.)
