I purchased the Wyze Home Starter Kit from Home Depot on January 17, 2021 because it was no longer being sold on the website. Almost immediately I had to have the Bridge replaced. Once that was replaced I started connecting the sensors. I only used the motion sensor and one contact sensor. I bought a 4 pack of bulbs a few months later and decided to set up the second contact sensor. Turns out it wasn’t working. I contacted support on May 13 and they replaced the contact sensor because it was under warranty.
Now the first contact sensor I had connected is no longer working. The battery is fine but the sensor itself doesn’t seem to want to work. I contact support and was told it is no longer in production so they can’t replace it. I was told I could purchase the V2 sensors. I asked if those would work to turn my lights on and off like my V1 contact sensor. I was sent a link that says “… functions will be basic.” I couldn’t get any clarification on if the “basic functions” include turning my lights on and off.
My questions are 1) I see I can purchase the V2 contact sensors themselves. Will they connect to my Bridge? The product page says no but the link I was sent says yes. 2) Will they work like my V1 sensor and be able to turn my lights on and off?
Any information is helpful! Seems like a few things I have read have been conflicting. So if there is anyone using the V2 sensors with the Sense Bridge, please let me know of your experience with it. I would rather not purchase the whole kit with the hub and subscription.
