Anyone used a Vision ZD2102 EU Door / Window Sensors with external metal contacts ?
I have the older version its not the Gen 5 one, so the user manuals are different. For the Gen 5 version it says you have to enable the dry contact by setting parameter 1 to 1 byte Dec and a Value of 255.
However for the older version of this sensor I have, there is no mention of that in the user manual and trying to set that parameter in Vera doesn’t work.
The problem is that when the external metal contacts are connected the door sensor device in Vera does not trip / untrip when opening and closing the external contacts.
If I use the magnet that came with the Vision door sensor that works OK for the internal reed switch and in Vera it does trip / untrip.
Looking in the Vera log when opening the external contacts I see this tamper alarm.

However when closing the external contacts again I see nothing in the log at all for that event. So basically the device is useless for use with external contacts. I’ve tried opening and closing the external contacts with the sensors supplied magnet for the internal reed switch, next to the sensor and away from the sensor, it makes no difference.
I know my external contacts are working OK as I testing them with an Everspring SM103 door sensor as that has a dry contact input on it as well. However that sensor is being used else where.
In the user manual for the Vision ZD2102EU (Not Gen5 version) that I downloaded it says:
“External Switch: If your window need two
sensors for fully monitoring. You could use an
external switch to connect with the ZD2102 for
extending detection. The ZD2102 has 2 normally
closed contact terminals. These can be used for
additional external switch wired contacts.”
I then found another slightly different user manual online that says:
"External Switch: If your window needs two sensors for fully monitoring. You could use
an external switch to connect with the ZD2102 for extending detection. The ZD2102
has 2 normally closed contact terminals. These can be used for additional external
switch wired contacts. The external switch will send an alarm report (type:01,level:11)
by opening the window/door. "
There is no mention of any device parameters for this older version of the sensor.
It doesn’t appear to send an alarm report, but a tamper report and only when the external contacts are opened but not when closed.
