Sudden Low Battery Warnings
One of my Entry Sensor batteries is low (the Base keeps announcing it). Fortunately, I have some CR-2032 Lithium 3V batteries on hand; however, the window the sensor is on is never opened. It is in my home office. Oddly, a sensor that never gets any use says it needs replacement when my front door (used multiple times per day) has no issues. I never had to change a single Entry Sensor Battery with SS2 (and neither did the person I gave it to). With one of the most significant Battery Life Expectancies (up to 10 years) and the lack of use, I am not sure why I suddenly have problems. Are other SS3 users experiencing this?
I am wondering if I will be wasting a battery. I am four years in, but it is not as though I have an ample supply of CR-2032s. Maybe I will remove and reinsert it before changing it.
Also, I could have sworn the Base Station warned me of the same thing with my Motion Sensor in the same room less than a week ago. But there is no message in the app (PC or phone) to know if I made a mistake (there was, but it is now gone). The only change in my office is a second battery backup UPS I added on September 24, 2022, that is closer to the sensors, but I have another one, have had it for a year and a half, and have had no issues (same brand and model). Besides, I do not think a UPS would cause interference – could it?
