I resurrected some ancient HM-DW001 door/window contact sensors. They included just fine and are reporting open and close events as BASIC SET. But the sensor_binary channel is not updating. I changed the database to tick Treat as Basic for the SENSOR_BINARY class. Is that the correct way to resolve the issue?
Yes - it sounds like it will resolve the issue. I’ve approved your change and will try and do an update of the dev binding a bit later to include this.
I must be the only one with this device, because I don’t see how it would ever work without this change. LOL
