On several of the Enterprise series line of sensors, I know there is an attribute named ‘transmission_count’ or on these sensors just ‘counter’. While I dont use that in any visualizations to the end user, I know that it is there and it is quite handy to trobuleshoot communications issues, since it is calculated at the sensor.
On the new ‘One Channel Vibration Sensor Plus’ devices, I am seeing strange behaviour on this attribute. Note, that this is with the sensors in mode 2, but NO requests for TimeDomain/Raw being made.
One of my sensors 00:13:A2:00:41:BA:A4:5A, always reports its transmission_count as 1.
I have another sensor of this type, 00:13:A2:00:41:D2:8E:FE that reports quite a bit more often (havent figured that out just yet) but it seems to cycle between a transmission_count of 1, 2 or 3, but never higher than that. It seems like it rolls over after 3 back to 1.
I am using a 900mhz modem, with Node-Red and the ncd-red-wireless library at version 1.5.45
