What your home controller needs to know
We call these Motion Sensors.
That’s true, that’s what they do. At about the size of a ping-
But they don’t just sense movement. They have temperature and light level sensors built in as well as a vibration accelerometer. Giving these small sensors such flexibility means that system costs are minimised.
Output terminals allow it to be used in an existing alarm system, whilst additional input terminals allow external probes to be connected, so that it can be located in a convenient place, whilst still sensing water in hard-
It senses smoke both optically and by detecting ionisation, and if that wasn’t enough, it also detects rapid temperature rises, and will trigger when it senses a temperature above 54C
Its sensitivity is adjustable, so it won’t go off when you burn the toast.
Door and Window Sensors detect whether a door or a window is open or shut – simple.
Except that you can also connect up to 4 auxiliary temperature sensors. Or any other type of binary sensor (ie “sensed” or “not sensed” conditions) to include non-Zwave sensors in a system.
And they’re available in a range of colours to suit your door or window.
What else would you like to monitor? Carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, humidity and wind speed can all be included using Z Wave sensors.
