Battery Low notification stays after replacing batteries

Post by jvmaanen » Thursday 09 August 2018 10:17

Recently I received a Battery Low notifications for my Everspring SP103 Motion Sensor. The battery level was 40%. After replacing the batteries I kept receiving the Battery Low notifications. The level was still 40%. I replaced the batteries again with other new batteries and I tested these batteries before I placed them in the Motion Sensor. I still have the Battery Low notifications after two days. I still reports 40%. The wake up interval for this device is 14400 seconds (4h).

Are you sure that there is no new device with different idx after you replaced the battery? Does 'lastseen' of your device update?
Edit: Just noticed this is a Z-wave device. Don;t know if they change idx also when changing battery.

I had some issues with my motion sensor not working so I deleted it and added it to the system again (which was basically impossible by the way, it took multiple attempts to delete and then took multiple attempts for the bridge to find it).

Now I have the sensor back on my bridge but the battery status is listed as “unknown”. Does anyone know where this status is instantly reported when you add a new sensor to the bridge? I’m wondering if, perhaps, the battery level is only polled every few hours and it’ll eventually catch up.

If it’s supposed to show right away then I have a feeling the sensor it’s added fully to the bridge again.

I’m considering doing a factory reset on everything because I’ve had all my rules and such since my v1 bridge and I’m thinking it’s time to clean up and start over fresh but if this “unknown” issue is really the fact that the motion sensor hasn’t been properly added then I’ll probably move to do a reset sooner than later (to try and get it all working again).

Sounds familiar. Same sensor, same behaviour but I am hoping that it will today report accurate battery readings nearly a week after changing the batteries. I use the python plugin that creates battery devices. That took a couple of days. Yesterday domoticz finally showed 100% through json... Let's hope the low battery warnings are gone now. No idea why it took so long. Same happened with a zwave wall switch.

Did some more testing and there's definitely a bug somewhere. Today the dzvents script still reported the low battery even though the JSON interface reports it at 100%:

Code: Select all

return {
        active = true,
        on = {
                timer = {'at 12:54'}
        },

logging = {
   level = domoticz.LOG_DEBUG,
   marker = "BATT "
},
        execute = function(domoticz)

                print('BATT: '..domoticz.devices('PIR_Garage').batteryLevel)

        end
}

I assume the JSON call get's it's info from the database (can you verify this?). So then dz_Ventz get's it's data from somewhere else. Did you restart domoticz already?

Not sure where json gets it from but DB seems a fair assumption. I did restart, no dice.
Whether dzvents or plain lua remains to be seen.

I think dannybloe has to take a look at this.

I experienced the same. After updating to beta V4.9910 and a soft reset of my Zwave controller and a heal network (both in node management under hardware tab) and a bit of patience, the status is reported correctly again.
