The “burglar” in most Z-Wave sensors means is someone disturbing the unit, IR detectors, tamper detectors, etc. For example, zw100 Multisensor 6 has a “burglar” when you shake it. Or when the IR sensor is triggered.
My problem with the implant is one of voltage and temperature. I designed my Implant with a 3 meter external temp probe. The Implant lets us put a number of these in parallel, as these probes are addressable by the Implant with no other work by us.
I use the probe for my outside 400-gal pond over the winter. I want the temp to be at least 52 degrees F. I installed the Implant, a terminal board, the incoming lead from power and the sensor into an IP66 case, for outside use. The power is delivered by a waterproof 15VDC power supply.
I calibrated it inside with a known thermometer, and realized the temp needs a resistor across the contacts.
But my problem is there are 2 added voltage and 2 added temperature measurements. The temp measurements seem about 20 degrees above a “true” reading. I can’t find any way to get this better, unless there’s some magic way to put another resistor somewhere. The 2 “internal” temps are about 20 degrees over their real temps, and they don’t agree…they are maybe 1/2-2 degrees different.
It took me time to figure out which of the 3 (1 for pond, and 2 internal) temps was real, when I was checking the calibration, because the temps were the same. Became better when I put the 4.7k 1/2 W resistor in, as the “real” temp sensor can see the real temp.
The little manual with the sensor shows the various ways to use different sensors. It would be nice if they included colors of the wires, vs trying to figure out in the little drawing. Remember, the little black wire in the Z-Wave antenna, so don’t trim that one!
The voltage is also odd, it’s not 15V on both. One has 14.35V and there other is 14.75V.
So I suppose for Hass, is there a simple way for me to say “temp for sensor x = temp for sensor x - 20”? I could calculate a template, but I wonder if it’s easy to override the default behavior.
Like, with the standard “kW” that some sensors in GE lamp modules use may have a “Watt” entity somehow, but I’m not seeing one.
