I'm not a huge gearbest fan, but it looks like these water sensors are a pretty good deal at $12.99.

I believe these are relatively new so the smartthings community is just getting started on them, but someone else was able to pair it. Getting the battery level to show seems like it still might be a work in progress however.

I also ordered the Xiaomi Aqara Temperature Humidity Sensor to put in the wine fridge, pretty good deal for $9.

Looks like it needs a XiaoMi multi function Gateway according to FAQ. The XiaoMi Gateway uses Zigbee protocol, so any gateway that talks Zigbee probably would work with this device. But z-wave is probably not supported(Vera,etc).

Complaining that an IoT sensor device should be on 5 GHz demonstrates a total lack of understanding of basic RF principles.

If anything, IoT devices will trend in a lower frequency direction, not higher. Take a look at what Z-Wave, Zigbee, WiFi HaLow and other IoT friendly protocols are doing. They're all moving into lower and lower frequency bandwidths for a litany of reasons which favor IoT and sensor networks.

The reason i'm not buying this sensor is the shocking lack of HDMI. Frown

Huh? 2.4ghz is better for this.

What's wrong with the Zigbee protocol? I have over 20 zigbee devices and I have never experienced connection issues. If anything the 2.4ghz band is advantagous due do to its better signal propagation.

I live in a very densely populated area with maybe 30 2.4ghz routers within range of my property. I'm sure streaming Netflix over 2.4ghz would present some issues, but for IoT devices that produce very little traffic I don't think congestion is much of an issue.

Thanks, ordered 2. My cousin had thousands of dollars in damage when an upstairs toilet started leaking in his house. I'm getting pretty good at dealing with Xiaomi sensors and pairing them with SmartThings. Totally worth the extra time for the savings.

That's exactly my thought, so I bought a few for some high risk areas. Still need some more but I want to try a few of these out first before I fully commit.

Yup, I'm going to start with the toilets and buy more for the upstairs washing machine etc if I find they are as reliable as the Xiaomi motion and door sensors

Too bad these aren't wifi 5.0ghz compliant. 2.4ghz is being phased out, and for good reason.

So you've never experienced constant disconnects at the router due to 2.4ghz congestion?

So there should never be any upgrades, and 2.4ghz is perfect for everyone, all the time...

You may want to get more data.

This type of device doesn't connect directly to your router so I'm not sure what you are talking about. These devices connect to a smart home hub such as samsung smartthings. And no, I've had zero issues with disconnects with any of my zigbee or zwave smart home devices. In fact the only devices I sometimes have issues with are WiFi based.
