Z-Wave Plus Smart Door Sensor

This patent-pending Z-Wave Plus Smart Door Sensor is the industry’s first battery-operated door sensor that discreetly fits onto the door hinge to monitor when your door opens and closes.

This innovative design means not having to worry about wires, door trim or crown molding interfering with the door sensor.

By simply opening and closing the door, you can automate your lights to turn on and welcome you when you walk in, automatically adjust your smart thermostat, receive alerts or trigger alarms when doors unexpectedly open.
