Z-Wave Plus Smart Door Sensor (32563)

The new patent-pending GE branded Z-Wave Plus Smart Door Sensor is the industry’s first battery-operated door sensor that discreetly fits onto the home’s door hinge to monitor the door opening and closing. The small, unobtrusive sensor is fixed in place by the door hinge pin and moves with the door without altering the room’s aesthetics. This innovative design means not having to worry about wires, door trim or crown molding interfering with the door sensor. By simply opening or closing the door, the sensor uses Z-Wave technology to wirelessly trigger scenes throughout your home and send and receive information to your Z-Wave hub, helping you stay safe and in control of your home at all times. 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. The GE branded Z-Wave Plus Smart Door sensor works with leading Z-Wave hub providers such as SmartThings, Train, LG, Nexia and many others.
