I could add my water sensors with temperature, tamper and the actual water sensor, but the contact sensor was no go. Also, I think I need a zigbee repeater. Any idea which would be the cheapest zigbee extender on the market ?

I was pleasantly surprised at the little amount of water required for these sensors to trigger.

Doesn't the Peanut Plug repeat? I thought all zigbee stuff was mesh... Placing it between your "far away" sensor and the a+ might help.

Yes peanut ( like all ZB devices) acts as a repeater and extends the mesh

Slight clarification, the Peanut Plug will act as a ZigBee extender, but not all ZigBee devices do. ALMOST every non-battery ZigBee device will act as an extender. But I have not seen any that will be an extender while battery powered.

Where is the pairing and reset button on the motion and window sensors. Tried to pair and it fails and no instructions on how to reset devices.

Remove the cover and pull the battery. The reset/pairing button is in the largest hole next to the battery slot. Hold the reset button down while inserting the battery to trigger pairing.

Some of mine were difficult to fully remove the battery and I found I only needed to pull up one side of the battery a bit while holding the reset button to get things going.

I have paired the motion sensors and using the A+ app it recognized there is motion. But, I cannot figure out how to reset the status. It always say MOTION DETECTED.
