I'd love to add more to my xiaomi smart home app (I've got one of the humidifiers) but these all use different size button cell batteries. Would be great if they were usb charging.
I've only had to change the CR2032 batteries in the temperature sensors after >2 years. Motion sensors, door/window sensors, switches, are all still on the original batteries since 2016/2017.
3 years from temp sensors, 6 years so far from switches (and still going strong ).
The natural drain of rechargable cells would probably mean their battery Lifespan would be significantly shorter and the item significantly bulkier.
What do you use the temp sensors for? To control your heaters/airconds?
I've used them to control a humidifier in winter. That's the only thing I really fully automated.
I very often use them so I can see the temp inside before I get home. If it's high I can switch on the a/C. Nice to come home to a cool living area. Same could be done in winter , but it's rarely cold enough.
The app graphs the temp and humidity info for you up to a month of data, that's quite interesting!
@ash2000: Very good use case. Thanks!
@ash2000: Do you have xiaomi humidifier as well? How are you able to automate it?
@johnyBgood: I have a manual Xiaomi humidifier which I connect to a xiaomi socket.
@ash2000: oh that make sense now, thanks.
I actually just bought this from AusPost at Fountain Gate, VIC for $49.95 today.
