My sensors come pre-set to the most commonly used settings however most of my standard size sensors have additional features that can only be enabled or set via this adapter. For example you can:
Here is a link to the Monitor Overview Monitor
The USB Adapter allows you to change the configuration of your Sensible living sensors. It lets you talk directly to the sensor module and adjust its settings. It works the same as the popular FTDI Basic ® board but uses the CH340G chip and is less expensive. As you can see from the images above the Desktop App has a built in Sensor Management console to make fine tuning of your sensors simple and easy.
From time to time I have customers that want to customize their sensors. For example there are features in your Sensible living sensors that are only settable via a USB to Serial adapter. Using the adapter you can change your house code, change the reporting interval, change the module ID etc. On sensors like the Refrigerator/Freezer monitor there is a settable alarm threshold that will cause the sensor to send a message immediately instead of waiting until the hour is up.
Note: This will not work with the Mini Sensors (Mini Temp, Mini-Light, Mini-Tilt, Mini-Plant etc.)
As I mentioned above the USB to Serial Adapter works the same as the FTDI boards but is less expensive.

Retired after 32 years in electrical engineering in Silicon Valley. Starting out in hardware engineering, embedded firmware, systems engineering and engineering management. I have worked for companies ranging from six employees to sixty thousand and managed development programs up to about $60 million. What i'm doing now is way more fun. I started this to learn about Arduino programming and one thing led to another. After building prototypes of these sensors for myself and some friends I decided to see if anyone else could use them. With a little luck I will make enough to buy a new scope. My old one still works but it was a discard when I got it 30 years ago and it takes a while for the tubes to warm up. :-)
I got the Rigol DS1102E. I love it! Just what I needed to develop and test my IOT sensor projects
