Mqtt works great on original firmware.Installed some shelly dw2s in the last few weeks. The batteries are **** expensive (90 bucks per dw2) and were supposed to last two years. Three weeks later , the shelly dw2 that is just possibly on the edge of the WiFi coverage disappears. This is on a door that is only opened maybe 4 times a week. Checked it, batteries flat. How?? It was only supposed to send updates when the door sensor status changed or temperature change by 1degree IIRC. All the other DW2s are still ok .
So who knows.
Also the shelly app is absolutely **** on Android. What bad design.
Thinking I should just enable MQTT or flash to tasmota and be done with it.
