    This has to be a mis-price, they're $150 each normally.

      I think they've been clearing out smart things…their mesh WiFi was sold for super cheap

      •  

        Where's the link to mesh wifi?

        •  

          Sold out ages ago. This must be some left over stock

    •  

      Huh, it's just dispatched with Toll for delivery.

    I've never understood how this is even a thing… No vision resolution, so no way to see actual features of a person, etc. Benefit over just a motion sensor is..? I love my SmartThings; the multipurpose sensors, the motion sensors are great. But this thing… meh

      People that don't want a camera in their home and this to happen to them I guess: https://9to5mac.com/2021/05/17/huge-eufy-privacy-breach/

      It's a middle ground between a dumb motion sensor and a smart tracking camera.

      •  

        Yeah, maybe. Still unconvinced. Go cameras or don't?

    •  

      Well, at this price, it's cheaper than motion sensor no?

      •  

        Don't think you can buy the SmartThings sensors - any of them - anymore; I believe they've sold their patents to Aeotec. Having said that, I bought a tonne of the multipurpose sensors and motion sensors when JB ran their clearance a month or so back. That and the Xiaomi Aqara sensors (which are dirt cheap - and pretty reliable after 18 months+) - still not convinced it is a worthwhile thing.

          The $20 Ikea motion sensors work fine with Smartthings also.

          I gave up on my Aqara sensors.

          The Aqara sensors only work well if they are connected directly to the hub. If they're in a mesh then they will lose connection, and it's a real pain to get them to reconnect. This is a known issue. Unfortunately with ZigBee you can't choose whether to connect directly or via mesh.

            @kranix: mine one seems working fine with the first gen xiaomi hub. There will be no mesh if your node in between is battery powered.

            •  

              @yfxsmike: I'd expect it to work well with a Xiaomi/Aqara hub. I'm using a SmartThings hub and I have lots of plugged-in devices around the house. Battery-powered sensors generally want to connect to the nearest plugged-in node to conserve battery power.

                @kranix: I got exactly the same experience: Aqara devices with ST hub are not stable over time.

                The only thing that sometimes might work is to have the Aqara device physically next to the hub for some days during/after initial setup, then move to where it should be. Seems like if the distance is not too large, the Aqara device retains the direct connection with the ST hub. However, this may change for no obvious reason and one is back to square oneā€¦

                  @MerlinKlendatu: That's exactly why I gave up. Far too much mucking around. Aqara sensors are cheap, but my time is not.
