At the time of publishing, Vera is not automatically compatible to aërQ Sensor. However, with a few simple tweaks compatibility can be established to enable the detection for the ideal mold environment.


This guide is an additional guide to the aërQ Temperature and Humidity Sensor user guide. aërQ Temperature and Humidity Sensor described in that guide are the Z-Wave Gen7 editions of Aeotec's door and window sensor technology. 


Follow the below steps to add extended compatibility to your aërQ Temperature and Humidity Sensor. This will need to be done to all new aërQ Temperature and Humidity Sensor added into your network.


1. Pair aërQ Temperature and Humidity Sensor to your Vera gateway

  1. In the device page, select "+ Add Device".
  2. Select "Generic Device".
  3. Select "Next", and then "Next" again.
  4. You'll see a counter count down waiting for you to pair a new device. On your aërQ Temperature and Humidity Sensor, tap the Action Button 3x times to pair aërQ Temperature and Humidity Sensor.


2. Ensure 1 or 2 nodes load up, it should be:


[Name of Sensor given by you, in my case it is called "aerQ Sensor"] - Main Node

[_Temperature Sensor] - Child Node

[_Humidity Sensor] - Child Node



Tap its Action button once after it is paired to update its battery, temperature, and humidity levels. Once tapped, the battery icon should appear over the main node of this device.


3. Select the arrow on your named device ["aerQ Sensor" in my example]



4. Click on "Advanced"


5. On the new page, make these changes:


device_type: 
urn:schemas-micasaverde-com:device:DoorSensor:1
device_file: 
D_DoorSensor1.xml
device_json: 
D_DoorSensor1.json


6. Go to Settings -> Z-Wave Settings, then "Advanced" tab.



7. Click on "GO" next to Reload Engine, wait for Vera to show a popup confirmation then press OK to close it.

8. Now refresh your browser, then click on "Devices" on the left hand menu.

9. Your aërQ Temperature and Humidity Sensor should look like the image below.


10. Now test aërQ Temperature and Humidity Sensor by tapping its action button once, if triggered, the running man on the icon should turn "RED" color like the image below. and when untriggered, the color should become a grey color.


Trigger = Humidity level >69%


Untriggered = Humidity level <= 69%
