Add motion detection to any door or window.
Small, Intelligent and Elegant, the Door & Window Sensor
The Aeotec Door/Window Detector Gen5 is a Z-Wave sensor that detects whether a door or window is open or closed.
The detector uses two magnetic units to detect movement; one is placed on the moving part of the door or window and the other unit on the frame. When the detector is triggered it sends an alert signal to up to five associated Z-Wave devices.
The detector is easily fitted to any door or window using screws or double-sided tape, and as it is battery-operated requires no extra wiring. Battery replacement is simple and the detector even tells you when they need replacing by flashing its LED and sending an alert to the central controller. The unit offers a tampering control and sends an alarm message when tampered. The sensor is 20% smaller than the first version, and also includes the latest stable Z-Wave technology including Z-Wave explorer frames.
Note: To be used as part of a Z-Wave network this sensor requires a suitable Z-Wave controller.
Improved Wireless Range
Completely wireless and with its small size the Door & Window Sensor is very powerfull. It uses a special Z-Wave wireless signal that aims to cause no interference with other technologies in your home. That same wireless signal is ultra-low power, offeriong you longer battery life. The integrated antenna can communicate over 90 meters in an open space.
Attach it to your door and window. Because it is almost invisible, the Door & Window sensor blends in and becomes a part of your home's décor. It's small size and beautiful, but without reducing its functionality.
Easy DIY Installation
The Door & Window Sensor is so light that you can install it using only double sided sticky tape. There are also other options including screws that are included in the package. All you'll need is a screw driver and five minutes of your time.
Forgetting to change batteries on a sensor that can be used for security can be dangerous. That's why Door & Window Sensor uses as little power as possible, with an average of 2 years passing before changing its batteries. The Door & Window Sensor includes low battery detection and warnings with compatible Z-Wave controllers and gateways.
