With an external sensor switch you can use plunger stitches or other inexpensive security switches wired in series to monitor multiple windows with a single z-wave sensor. I also plan to install a plunger inside the well of one of my standard deadbolts to remotely detect if the deadbolt is locked.
I should mention I have a wired alarm system that I am not using, so I use the sensor in my door, and this to make it work. If you open the case to the main unit you will see two wire terminals. I connected my existing sensor to these two terminals and threw away the magnet piece. That's all it takes. When the wired sensor is open or closed this sensor will transmit the z-wave information to my Wink Hub 2, and viola I have a door sensor for home automation. I make the act of the door closing start a 5 minute timer that will lock my deadbolt, and I never have an unlocked front door.
When you connect this to your existing sensor it does matter which way it is wired. You will notice a diode in your wiring for your front door, or whatever zone you use. You must have the diode on the top connector, the one farthest from the battery. You can check it is correct by opening and closing the door. If it is wrong this will not work properly. It will also burn through the battery really fast if it is backwards. My sensor actually worked backwards, but my battery would die in 5 days, and that's not good. When connected correctly I would assume a good year out of the battery.
Now, if you're like me you have an alarm panel there, you can actually use the power from the panel instead of the battery. The battery is a 12V cell, and my alarm battery was also a 12V cell. So, I connected the wires from the alarm panel battery to the terminals on the sensor and eliminated the battery, so it will never run out.
This can be used on any sensor in your alarm except motion. So, any windows or doors. You can piggyback all your doors into one sensor, or you can add as many as you want. You just pair each one with your system.
One other thing to keep in mind. If you remove the case to do what I did, it will illuminate an LED which will also burn out the battery really fast, like 5-7 days. The lid of the case pushes a button that will turn off the LED. So, cut out a piece of the lid so you can put it back on with your sensor wires in place. This was another hard lesson I learned, as I threw away the lid on the first sensor I bought and ended up soldering the connectors on the PCB to imitate a closed switch.
Also despite what some said, I found it easy to pair, and I know as I've done it again, and again and again ... in hopes of getting it to work properly.
The problem is that, sometimes when I pair it, it reads as "closed" all the time, regardless of whether the magnet portion (in any orientation) is touching at the properly (marked on the plastic body) or not. Then I remove it and re-pair it and sometimes instead it will only read as "open".
I know that the magnet IS being detected, as when I touch the magnet part to the proper place the light flashes once, and ditto it flashes once when I "open" it by pulling the magnet away. But the reported state never changes as a result.
Because I have some RBoys software installed, mine shows up as a GoControl contact sensor. I went into the IDE and tried all the different open/close contact sensors I could find, i.e., using different published device handlers. These definitely installed, as the options changed depending on which device handler was installed, i.e., some device handlers show battery state and/or "tamper/refresh" buttons and use different visual layouts to display the open/close state. But regardless of device handler, it seems like what the device is sending is flawed.
Of course I can't say with assurance that this type of device doesn't work with SmartThings, especially since other customers report that it does. I can only say that this particular one definitely doesn't. The battery reads at 100% charge, assuming that THAT is being reported correctly. And I've done a z-wave repair several times, as what I read online is that an "always open or always closed" state is generally resolved by one of those two things --- replacing battery or z-wave repair.
I feel that I've gone the extra mile, or two or three in trying to get this to work. I have quite a number of devices and sensors installed, and most have been quick and easy to integrate to the system.
Based on my own experience I would give this ONE star, but (a) while z-wave, the manufacturer does focus it on the Nexia system and all of the printed instructions are relative to that --- and I can't tell (and don't care) how well it works with Nexia, and again (b) some customers state that they're getting this to work with SmartThings.
But I don't. Either it doesn't reliably work with SmartThings, or I got a flawed model. Either way, caveat emptor.
