Cheers - noise isn't really much of an issue, given mine will be in my workshop, and the print quality doesn't need to be incredible for...

I'm with this fella, never used one before but interested in getting into it, mostly to print cases for custom home assistant sensors and...

Generally agree although they are brighter than most of the Tuyas. Plus at least some Tuyas become only controllable from the app and won't...

I use the Hue bridge and it works perfectly. I'm moving away from Tuya - hate relying on the cloud and localtuya is a PITA to set up. I've...

Totally agree - have a mixture of LIFX, Tuya (bunch of brands) and Hue. Hue works perfectly every time. In fact I've stocked up on Hues to...

I moved house recently and had enormous trouble setting up my older LIFX bulbs - they just would not connect. Several emails back and forth...

The limited time deal has ended apparently. It's a shame the color Hues are so expensive. I suppose they'll go down in price (as the white...

Paid $99 at Bunnings Bendigo today - 2nd last one, on the clearance shelf.

You're spot on - they aren't very practical and they're a bit unreliable. I have two, one is being set up for the toddler (different...

The motion sensors aren't bad. I ordered three, one failed after a couple of months but the other two are running pretty much perfectly...

Sonoff contact sensors are pretty poor quality. Some arrive broken, the batteries they come with only last a couple of months, and even...

This is weird as that's what I paid for mine and the battery died today. And they were great!
16/03/2022 - 22:05
I bought one a couple of years ago. They're absolutely incredible and if it broke tomorrow I'd replace immediately.

Lighting if you have dumb lamps, but if you're going to buy these you might as well get wifi bulbs (and have the option of dimming or...

I posted earlier but my comment seems to have disappeared. They're Bluetooth. If you run Home Assistant, you can use the Bluetooth in your...

You wouldn't be able to share those scripts would you? I love the product but the rain delay function is pretty ordinary.
08/02/2022 - 19:09
I have Hue, Aqara, and Sonoff motion sensors. The Hue is the most reliable, most accurate and also measures temperature and light levels,...

My lawn is about 600-800 sq m and the block is hilly. How many charges to get through it? I'm thinking of getting this as an interim...

I'd look at a couple. Don't have a huge use case for it but I'll find something.
14/01/2022 - 13:48
Well that's pretty cool, I'm just about to migrate from the Pi to a NUC - I suppose it would work with that too. Might buy a set and see.
08/01/2022 - 12:11
Shame this isn't ZigBee, it'd be great for home assistant
08/01/2022 - 11:33
I have a block of about 1000 sq m - tossing up between the Worx and the Moebot. Think the significant price advantage for the latter might...

The Wyze is the option I would go for but yeah, got to go mains powered.
13/11/2021 - 20:40
I have had a couple of these for a few days now and literally just finished hanging them. Having read a bit more about them on Reddit etc...
13/11/2021 - 19:37
I've heard of similar problems with Smart things hubs. Samsung and co need to make a decent cheap sensor - the genuine ones are nice but...

What a shame - I had two of the Solar Argus 2s literally arrive yesterday, I had assumed they had RTSP. On the plus side they were delayed...
