I have some questions on Xiaomi devices and OpenHab, I asked them in the big Xiaomi topic but did not get any answer, I fear it might have gone un-noticed, so I reask here.
Motion sensors from Xiaomi have the ability to report illumination or brightness, and I don’t see this info being reported in the available channels for motion sensors? I don’t see it either in the doc for Xiaomi Binding… Is there a reason for this?
Same for smoke detectors, I don’t see the channel for battery level and low battery appearing? Do I have a problem with my setup? And I don’t see either the “smoke density” and “ability to see in the smoke” info that are popping up in other plateforms for the same device…
What would be the right way for me to monitor the “reachability” or “aliveness” of a device? I just noticed that one of the Water leak sensors I have is out of reach and so basically is not connected to OH, and nothing mentioned it (it appears nicely “online” in the things list)…
Several channels seem to be mapped to a Switch type of item while I think they are more a read only info (e.g. LowBattery). Is this intentional or a mistake?
Thanks a lot for your attention,
