The Zipato smoke detector seems to be the exact same thing as the Heiman one.
Of course: the Heiman is available for about 30 dollars including shipping. Did anyone test the Heiman smoke detector with the Zipato plugin, just to see if it works out of the box?
I do use now Fibaro Smoke detectors. In house these are working fine, but in the garage not.
I now tried two different fibaro’s in the garage but until now at beginning of the winter the fibaro is starting false smoke detection several times a day. (Reason I don’t know: Lower temp? Higher humidity?) Very anoing. After trying twice Fibaro with the same results, I decide to stop with Fibaro in the garage (A pitty because it looks very nice). So I’m looking for an other brand and wondering if Heiman/ Zipato is a good solution.
Other ideas are welcome also
Ted, first of all thank you for your contributions to the Homey eco system. I am very glad with some of your apps!
I do not understand the rewrite for Zigbee: is this the same issue that needs to be adressed to make the Xiaomi (Honeywell) smoke detectors work? And as far as I know the Zigbee rewrite is not part of the V2 release as such, correct?
I will wait for the Zigbee version. For some reason my Zigbee network seems to have a better range then the Z-Wave one…
