How to reset sonoff tamosa water leak sensor?

How to manually reset water leak sensor via script execution?

here is my binary sensor:

  • platform: mqtt
    name: “Basement Leak”
    state_topic: “tele/RF_Bridge/RESULT”
    value_template: ‘{{value_json.RfReceived.Data}}’
    payload_on: “15829521”
    device_class: moisture
    #off_delay: 30 {I want to manual reset instead self reset after xx seconds}
    retain: false

Here is my reset script but it did not work

sequence:

  • service: mqtt.publish
    data:
    entity_id: binary_sensor.basement_leak
    state_topic: “tele/RF_Bridge/RESULT”
    value_template: ‘{{value_json.RfReceived.Data}}’
    payload_off: “15829521off”

Thanks,

It looks like you might be using the wrong type of quotes. Plus I would also add the payload_off line into your sensor.

I would suggest the following changes to your sensor language:

  platform: mqtt
  name: “Basement Leak”
  state_topic: "tele/RF_Bridge/RESULT"
  value_template: '{{value_json.RfReceived.Data}}'
  payload_on: "15829521"
  payload_off: "15829521off"
  device_class: moisture
  #off_delay: 30 {I want to manual reset instead self reset after xx seconds}
  retain: false

Hope that helps.

did not work.

Your “Basement Leak” sensor has a “payload_on” defined, but not a “payload_off”.
If you are going to send “15829521off” to turn it off, you need to define that as the payload_off attribute in your sensor entity.

I would also look at the MQTT stream and check that the payload off is getting published in the right place, and formatted correctly. In my own automations for this, I build the JSON manually because I find it simpler. That looks something like this, in the automation

service: mqtt.publish
    data:
      topic: "tele/Sonoff_RFBridge/RESULT"
      payload: "{\"RfReceived\":{\"Data\":\"15829521off\"}}"
      retain: "true"

Thanks. I got mine working too. I didn’t know that I don’t need to have water leak entity_id to reset it, just proper payload.

  • service: mqtt.publish
    data:
    topic: tele/RF_Bridge/RESULT
    payload: 15829521off
