Will you keep sensor in sleep mode if there is no movement of door?

    Hi Vishnu,

     

    Great question! You're correct, the sensor uses a sleep mode until it is woken up by the movement of the door. At this time our second generation sensors see on average about one year of battery life.

     

    The sensors use a proprietary radio protocol to communicate to the bridge.

     

    Feel free to reach out to support@getnotion.com with any other questions!

    Hello Julian,

    Okay, thank you for your quick response. I think you are using gyroscope angular rate values are the triggering events for the sensor to come from sleep to active mode on a horizontal moving door. If, suppose the opening door rate(say I am opening door very slowly less than are equal to gyroscope zero rate value) is less than your triggering input value, how should our notion sensor detect this type of motion.

    Will the notion sensor detect it? or this type of motion will not be practical happen?

    What will be the power consumption of your sensor when it is in sleep mode, with that value only you determined the one-year battery life right?

    Thank you

    Hi Vishnu,

     

    The latest version of our sensor firmware will trigger on the magnetic orientation of the sensor. That means that the sensor cannot be tricked by opening the door very slowly. If you have a Notion sensor on a door in your home that requires a firmware update, please let me know and I can take care of that on my end.

     

    The battery life of the sensor is determined by the average power consumption across awake and sleep modes. 1 Year is a reasonable figure for all sensors in the average home.
