    The +50% cost in shipping to the USA really hurts. If he could work with someone in the USA as a distributor he could really up the number of sales.

    Basically the sensor stays the same but they changed the packaging and the case.

    Unfortunately it’s sold out again. Shipping to Europe is also quite expensive as the price of the sensor is almost added again with shipping costs and taxes.

    It’d be great if they managed to produce a supply large enough to supply EU dealers with it but I suppose the team is too small for that.

    Good to see proliferation of presence detectors. Good for turning things off when nobody is around.

    In my last job I got to play a bit with the SeeedStudio mmWave presence box. What was interesting (and a little confusing) was that it took multiple add-on boards for things like on-device fall detection (for elderly). For the time I had with it, it worked fine with HA: https://wiki.seeedstudio.com/mmwave_radar_Intro/

      Yeah that seems to be why the EPL supports a bunch of sensors, it’s a tradeoff between different features for each sensor. Some do X/Y position tracking (default one). Some do fall detection. Some can measure heart rate. But seems like no sensor can do it all, at least not in that price range.

    Do people know if he is using one of the yaml configs on github or has his own?

    I am currently developing a PoE ESP-C3 bridge for the LD2410 and 2450 (don’t know if I will sell it or just have all of the files available to make yourself) do I am doing a bit of research. When I make mine open source anyway, I guess the license will be similar to the skreek version anyway so I can work off of his.
