Sonoff SNZB-02D Zigbee LCD Good Temperature & Humidity Sensor

Straight off the bat, I like this new sensor from Sonoff – epecially since it’ll work with my different Sonoff merchandise like NSPANEL Professional and due to the eWeLink plug-in for Node-Purple, my own residence management setup.. however I’ve to ask… what’s it with some producers that they’re nonetheless utilizing LCDs from a bygone age.

This CR2450-powered (included) sensor-display seems to be pretty – it has a pleasant hinged case for desk mounting and a panel for wall mounting – very pleasing – however only for the sake of it, let’s examine with an affordable Zigbee LCD sensor I picke up from AliExpress not too long ago – essentially the most excellent distinction – except for the AliExpress unit being a tad SMALL – is the show.

The latter has good BLACK, CLEAR lettering at any angle – the SONOFF unit is a bit choosy on viewing angles. Okay, I’ll grant you, good luck getting repeatability from AliExpress – however I’ve to provide that Ali-sourced sensor a point out for the show alone.

Okay, now you point out it – the AliExpress unit has a smiley face, non-programmable to point what THEY consider as cheap humidity – and that’s it however I DO just like the stable show. Again to the brand new Sonoff unit… I’m going to rapidly attempt tp pair it with my NSPANEL Professional… bear with me…

T&H Sensor from Sonoff added to NSPanel Pro.

Right here we go… Sonoff NSPanel Professional – Add Gadget… at this level I pressed and held (for a number of seconds) the little button on the again of tthe new SNZB-02D sensor whereas the NSPanel Professional was looking out. Inside seconds – DONE. Added.

Hopefully over time, NSPanel Professional will have the ability to monitor temperature readings from this machine – proper now other than instantaneous readings, nothing. Honest sufficient as I simply put in it. Identical with the eWeLink APP. Regardless of urgent the buton on the sensor, minutes after set up, nonetheless no historical past.

I shook the sensor to get it to alter temperature barely – and the temperature dropped from 19c to 18c, humidity from 65% to 60% no change on NSPanel Professional.. I can see slight humidity change within the APP however nonetheless no historical past…

SNZB-02D Sensor readings in the eWeLink APP

I suppose I’ll should be extra affected person – not one in all my higher expertise.. sure you possibly can change the title of the show and what models it makes use of for temperature.

Nope – I’m not following this… 2 readings in eewLink APP – taken half an hour aside.. why no historical past? I’ve requested Sonoff to remark.

AND – I added a thermostat to NSPanel Professional – it accepted the brand new temperature sensor exhibiting the temperature you see on the fitting… however initially confirmed a humidity of 0.0%… however then as if my magic – an improve for NSPANEL Professional – see the video.
