The essence of this device is simple:
* it accepts two wires from you (through the socket at the bottom)
* if the two wires are shorted, it sends "ON" signal to the Z-wave network, if the wires are disconnected it sends "OFF" signal.
Some description of the unit:
* It is approximately 3 1/4" x 1 1/4" x 7/8" in size but I think the actual circuit should be much smaller
* It is powered by a 3V 1500mAh CR123A battery (included)
Also, it works well with Home Assistant: it shows up as "binary_sensor.aeotec_dry_contact_sensor_gen5_sensor_XX"
A couple of notes:
* Initially, it was in some weird configuration mode and it was not be recognized by Home Assistant. To fix it do the following:
- go to Configuration of this device on your zwave controller (I am using ozwcp)
- pick "Report type sent:" configuration,
- type "16" instead of "256"
- click "Submit". This will switch it to a regular Binary Sensor configuration that is recognized by many controllers.
It was very easy to connect and probably took me about 10 minutes to set up. On my SmartThings, it registers as an open/close sensor. If your device registers open/close backwards from what you would prefer, they offer a custom device install that switches the open and close detection.
I used one to connect my “dumb” wired smoke and CO detectors so if I get a smoke alarm while not home, SmartThings will let me know. I also use one with my Guardline Wireless Driveway Alarm so it tells me when someone enters the property while I'm not home and I attached one to my stand alone home alarm system as an additional way to let me know if the alarm is triggered. All 3 applications are connected through relays.
I do lose about 1 in 50 ON or OFF events (not both), but I have not tested whether they are lost in the SmartThings cloud, or in the IOT streams collector system Grovestreams, or somehow by the device hardware.
EDIT: 1of2 failed in 18months.
