Smoke sensor

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I bought 5 smoke sensors and installed them.

Two gave the message battery need to be changed.

One came after one day too.

I replaced all batteries, if I check it with battery controller they are more as green.

After one/two days two pieces  starts beeping and a yellow led>> change battery. This battery are full!

Is this a bad product range?

Any advice or do I need to buy another brand?

Thanks in advance

After inclusion did you do a mesh reconfiguration. Then a soft reconfiguration.

Maybe they loose sometimes,  the connection to the gateway and they keep trying to establish communication again.

  • Hello,

    Update again a set of new batteries of other brand, all sensors behave the same>>>after a few hours email change batteries and piep. All batteries show on tester full green

    Solution all packed and send back to supplier. Bought one piece of brand name Popp to see how they behave.

    This seems like the old known issue. If you are to fast with exchanging the batteries, the smoke sensor is not aware.

    Wait some minutes and click the button to drain the condensater in the sensor, then insert again.

    Also wake up the device to communicate with controller and send actuall battery status.

    But, as you will receive bad alarms at night, it was a good decision to send them back ;-)

  • Popp smoke sensor with option if one is triggered all sirenes off installed Popp smoke sensors will sound,  according help desk after update not working!! You can do it with lua inHC2.

    I made the choice of sirene sound all independent  of what ever device, nana.

    So I ordered again 5 Fibaro smoke sensors by another firm.

    These react better here the soft configuration works by 2 out of 6 the others are still pending!!!!!

    Already  3 pieces of battery changed

    Am I the only one who has a problem with it?

  • continuing story,

    All soft configuration message are gone.

    today the other batteries replaced>>old batteries are tested and far over green.

    So best solution I think will be demount, put in box and back to supplier
