Pressure pads for bed presence sensorts

Would anyone have any suggestions for cheapish pressure sensor pads I could use to hack together bed presence sensors for my kids with some esp32?

I am located in the EU and the only suggestions I have managed to find anywhere are for the US (e.g. the Ideal Security SK630). Something off ali-express would be fine.


They compress after a few months and start false triggering.

Consider a force sensitive resistor instead.


Very nice. Thanks. Seems like I can handle this with my first-year physics laboratory skills from 20 years ago.

I can vouch for that… having that issue right now… I have to just about jump on the bed to get it to register for a second or two… so yeah those pads are nice for a while but they do fail just like mine is right now.
