Three PEQ Zigbee HA 1.2 Sensors for $19.99 each at Best Buy
« on: August 13, 2015, 11:24:37 am »
Three to choose from, appear to be the same as Smart Things sensors, free shipping + tax.

motion + temp - http://www.bestbuy.com/site/peq-motion-sensor/8229135.p
water + temp - http://www.bestbuy.com/site/peq-water-sensor-white/8229309.p
contact + temp - http://www.bestbuy.com/site/peq-3-series-contact-sensor/8229286.p

I bought some of each and two of them showed with free expedited shipping.

Thanks. I logged in just for this. Do you know if the contact sensor has terminals for external switches ? Also, It looks like they are multi sensors and support temperature as well.

Does Almond+ support these functions as well ?

I don't know any answers to your questions yet. You could check the Smart Things site for more sensor specs.

SmartThings posts mostly seem to indicate that these are CentraLite 3-Series that are repackaged (different shell and name). If they are, no there is no external switch capability. Looking elsewhere for PEQ-specific specs it proving difficult...

So I got the door sensor and the water sensor delivered today and both of them said Association Failed.

@Ashok - Any idea if these can be supported ? If not, I'll have to return them.

Looking over some past posts it appears some people were able to use PEQ devices... in the past. This looks like the HUGE concern I worry about with ZigBee... manufacturers updating their stuff to only work with the people they want them to.

Maybe Securifi can figure out what the changes are that prevents it from working though.

I hope that @Securifi @Ashok can make this work. I thought this would go the Lowes IRIS way, but smartthings support these sensors, so I am hopeful that they can be made to work.

@Ashok - I have sent the logs.

I paired the first motion sensor without issue. Sensor #2 and #3 failed.

UPDATE: Backed out of the Add Sensor app, reset a sensor and associated fine. Repeated for the third sensor. Now, on to the water and switches!

UPDATE 2: Successfully added a water sensor on the second try after resetting the sensor. One of the door & window sensors needed a reset to pair, but the other joined just fine. Not sure if having the sensors close to the A+ (less than 2') helped with pairing.

I am very interested to know if the water and the door sensor work.

Yep, got them all added. Now to test...

Yep, all sensors work and report very quickly when change is detected. The "tamper" feature of the sensors also works. None of them showed as having temperature sensing.

I was not able to get the door/window sensor to pair even after resetting.  I got the following in the system log:

 I tried again and was able to pair the PEQ 3 door/window sensor.  I am not exactly sure why it paired this time.  It could be that the timing of the add sensor key-press and the sensor pair initiation is critical.

Good news!

How are these working out for you folks?

The only issue is sometimes adding a sensor fails, but if they don't on the first try most pair on the second try. All sensors are working, including temperature and tamper alerts, so I'm pretty stoked!
