Visonic Window / Door Sensor MCT-340E for $14.20
« on: April 06, 2017, 03:39:51 pm »
MyDigitalDiscount has a deal on the MCT-340E. These are small and work well. The temperature is also useful and I have found them pretty accurate.
I have not bought anything from this site before though. So good price on a ZigBee sensor but no idea about the seller. Deal is supposed to be limited in quantity.

Yes. Mine report temperature no problem.
On my Almond+ originally and now on the Almond 3.

I purchased 2 through this website as they are still on sale, got them within 3 days. Paired right up to my A3. They how ever don't show temperature status for me

Did you check under "View Device History"? I have seen a few sensors that for the time being only show it there.

Mine show temp in the main section. Try removing and pairing them again. Some sensors also need to extra signaling while pairing (moving the magnet so it open/closes repeatedly or pushing the tamper button or such). I cannot remember about these because I paired them so long ago.

I tried repairing them. Opening and closing upon pairing does indeed show the temperature once it's paired. Is there a way to change the door icon in the app to a window? Is there a window icon? I seen this thread and jumped on these as being door sensors. ... I have a zwave dongle and have a few ge zwave switches so I have been looking at z wave sensors as well. Trying to go the least exspensive way as possible. Any suggestion would be appreciated!

There is not a way to switch the icon. Maybe write that as a new post in the Ideas section, because it sounds good. Especially if there were a variety of icons you could select or maybe select different icons for different states.

As for building up devices... I have quite a few, but most have been bought on sale/clearance or eBay. Only a couple devices have ever been full price.

Now that you have me thinking about it... I really should do an inventory.

I second the sale / clearance and ebay route. Very few of my sensors were bought brand new outta the gate, many that I did I have had to hold and wait for support any ways. For this reason I also have several different brands / models doing the same jobs i.e. many different door / window sensors.
