Battery levels of sensors
« on: December 17, 2019, 12:14:10 PM »

I know there was talk on this forum about reporting battery levels to HG.

I cannot find it anywhere. I also suck at search strings.

Is there a way to report to HG battery levels of each sensor?

There is a string you can set when you update a sensor that will store the battery charge.  I don't remember off hand, but it's something like:


The value is either 0-1 or 0-100 which I also don't recall at the moment.  Either one of the other HG users who have worked with sensors can answer or you could check my signature scripts where I'm sure I set the value.  It's really easy and once you do that, the widget will automatically display it. | About X10 | X10 Security Systems | Cameras| Package Deals
