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…
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…
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.
