Use door sensor as gaz meter reader

Hi,

I have a door sensor lsmt-606A from DI-O (433.92MHz) setup and connected to a gas meter. It's able to pickup the magnet every metercube of gaz. But at the moment it's setup as a door sensor, I would like know how I could set it up as a gas usage counter.

Is there a trick to force the door sensor to act like a gas counter under Zipato?

Hi,

I don't think that is possible. But you can do the following:

1. Create a virtual meter which will act as your gas usage meter.

2. Create a rule, triggered by your door sensor and add 1 to the virtual meter above

3. hide the door sensor in the device browser.

This should work

Thanks for the reply.

Sadly it won't do exactly what I'd hope for. I was looking to increment the value, but you need to pay for the rule :(
