    Carlos,

    As Karam mentioned we did play around with one a while back. I'll get it set up again and see what kind of response we get ... if I remember the range was quite good, the response time was a bit too slow we felt though.

    Regards,
    Peter.

    if it's a challenge that's the thing, after the public / SWMBO put the dampers on the light-switch side of things, how about tying-in bathroom scales into the HA ... perhaps (ultimately) with voice read-outs & trend graphs on a DFP display, by individual ... ? !

    On the Sensor UK site they show you how to mount a sensor switch behind a tile. So I guess the sensitivity is ok.

    toscal's link was interesting, and led me to :

    and

    have to say, I like the idea of the glass plate pivoting over four switches ...

    not used one, though, so am cautious ...

    >normal switches as well ...

    interesting ... can't get the web-site to tell me details, though ... but if they could be used to provide digital inputs to Idratek modules, they could be very interesting ... lots of uses, in kitchen & bathroom, by bed, etc !!

    Don't say it too loud. Wife is dietitian and would love something like that.... I, myself, like my drinks and barbecue.... not a good combination with scale home automation...

    goodness, something HA with built-in WAF doesn't come-'round very often ... sounds like you've an opportunity to get her into the spirit of things, into wanting you to do more !

    The Oregon Scientific BR-102 weighing scales display on a wireless remote and the format is supported by RFXComm, and there is a xAP conduit to RFXComm.
