FS on continuous 12V power. HC2 showing "Low Battery".

Question

Hello!

 

As the topic indicates, i have a Flood Sensor that i've put on continuous 12 V power, but the Home Center is still showing the device as low battery, giving me warnings, etc.

 

Is there any way i can fix this? (I know i can turn off the warnings... i want to fix the issue with it being shown as low battery)

Hello,

 

When you included device into HC2, did you include it while batty powered or has it 12V from start? If power supply method is changed (e.g. from battery to 12V DC) then device must be excluded and included again.

    Hello

    Is any 12V DC eg  500 mA - 6 Watt ok for the job?

    Regards

    I just found a recuperate power supply from another device but this give 16VDC.
    I suppose this is also ok as Max input to flood sensor is 24VDC if i understand correctly?
