Zooz Z-Wave Plus 4-in-1 Sensor ZSE40 VER. 2.0
This 4-in-1 Sensor has been one of our most popular devices and although it's been selling fast, we wanted to make it even better. After hearing and reading your feedback, we decided to introduce some big changes:
- LONGER BATTERY LIFE: We changed out the AAA batteries of Ver 1.0 for a new CR123A battery, extending battery life significantly while making the device low-maintenance and hassle-free.
- FASTER MOTION DETECTION: Benefit from an upgraded firmware that makes for split-second detection and instant notifications.
- IMPROVED DOCUMENTATION: We’ve updated the ZSE40’s manual to make it clear and intuitive, with all the info and specs you need to successfully set up the sensor in no time at all.
The 4-in-1 Sensor Ver 2.0 prioritizes safety and security throughout its design:
- SECURE SIGNALS: Bank-grade AES encryption protects communication between the ZSE40 and your hub (as long as it's a security-enabled hub).
- RELIABLE MONITORING: Enjoy the device’s fast response times with activity reports you can depend on. With a 40-foot motion detection range, this sensor covers the whole room and any larger space (compared to an average of 20-foot range in similar devices).
- COMPACT & DISCREET: Its small form factor and inconspicuous design make it easy to overlook, the perfect security device for unwanted company.
- TAMPER REPORTS: Anytime the sensor's cover is removed, it will trigger the tamper switch and send an alert to your hub. You can schedule additional notifications for optimized security.
- LATEST Z-WAVE: The ZSE40 is equipped with the protocol’s latest 500-series chip, ensuring faster wireless communication, longer range, and improved battery life.
We don’t believe in one-size-fits-all. The ZSE40 is adjustable at every step of its set up, installation, and monitoring:
- CUSTOMIZED MOTION: Choose between 7 levels of motion sensitivity. No more false positives every time the cat walks by!
- TOTAL LED CONTROL: Get instant temperature and status reports just by looking at the LED indicator. Various color options communicate current temperature, if motion is detected or if the tamper switch is triggered. Choose how you want your sensor to communicate by adjusting its 4 different modes.
- ADVANCED PARAMETERS: Change up the report thresholds for temperature, humidity, light & motion to get precise and unique detection for your needs (your Z-Wave hub needs to support advanced settings and parameter input).
- FLEXIBLE INSTALL: The ZSE40 comes with the hardware for almost any indoor mounting location. Use the included bracket, screws, or tape to set up your sensor on the ceiling, the wall, or in the corner of the room.

If you'd rather have temperature be the main tile, use this alternate one:
Stuff I like:
* Its size and form factor. It's quite unobtrusive to anyone used to typical home alarm motion sensors.
* What comes in the box. All kinds of mounting brackets. You should be a NO lack for the right stuff to get this sensor mounted where and how you want it.
* The fact it uses 2 regular AAA batteries. This sounds like a simple thing, but...
* The regular reporting of sensor data. Also sounds like a simple thing, but check forums for all the folks who just want updated values on a regular basis. If you're wanting to control a humidifier, or a window AC unit or anything that needs to be responsively managed, this is for you.
* The notification LED is actually usable. YES, you have to be looking at it, but it does actually blip colors based on whats up. Maybe more a novelty but I can see it out of the corner of my eye and know it is doing something (without staring at an app). I do provide controls for that in my device type by the way...
* IT IS ACTUALLY PRETTY DARN ACCURATE! Again, seems like a no brainer. I have a bunch of different multisensors at my house and The only one I trust implicitly is the $500 Carrier MyTouch thermostat on my wall! HA! And, actually, this sensor reads to within tenths of a degree temperature wise and about 1 percent relative humidity when placed next to that thermostat. The others no. Some are off by 4 degrees and 9 points of humidity!
* Another accuracy win, the light sensor! OK, so it reads in percent... like 0 is dark and 100 is fully lit.. whatever that means.. it isn't in candles or lux like we would even (most of us) know what those numbers equated to, but REALLY quickly you figure out what it is talking about. The also, thoughtfully, put the light sensor on the front face, UNOBSTRUCTED by the plastic housing, but as you can see (the top left dark spot) it doesn't look bad. I don't think so anyway.
* Other developerish stuff I wont bother commenting about...
What I DONT like...
* The action button as mentioned by another reviewer, needs to be pressed with something small. An unbent, naked paperclip (not the plastic ones) works fine, as does a thumbtack. I am rather leery about sticking sharp objects into electronics though. I would ask that future versions have a more accessible action button.
* It isn't IP anything rated. That I know of... Maybe I could pull it all apart and coat it with something, but... I'd like to be able to use it outdoors. Under shelter of course... I suppose I could throw it out there and find out, but... I'll let the vendor comment on that. I did read the instructions and it says indoor use only.
* Working temperature range. This is definitely a "home sensor" meaning an in your comfy house sensor. I live in Houston, and say I wanted to put it in my attic to drive a fan or something.. I'm not sure based on the product lit and the hot Houston summers whether it would survive.
That's it. I liked it enough I impulse bought another on Amazon! Thanks Amazon, yes you know me well. I'd say it is a pretty great device especially since of my three cons, 2 of them are unknowns... Way to go guys! can't wait to see what you come up with next!

9 Mount it and enjoy!!
First, let’s talk about what “battery life” means. Is it the time until you see your controller displays “0% battery capacity” (or something like that), or is it the length of time you actually got from a set of batteries before the sensor just stopped reporting anything back to the controller app? It turns out, they are two entirely different matters.
I ran a simple experiment where I substituted an inexpensive lab power supply for the batteries in the ZSE40, and then varied the voltage to the battery terminals while observing what my controller app (Indigo 7.0.3 running on a Mac) displayed as “Battery Level.” (Your controller may call it a different name, but the idea is the same: an attempt to tell you, the user, how much juice is left in your batteries.) The results of my measurement were quite surprising.
This comments section is not intended for any kind of technical discussion. If I got into electronic terms, most would not understand it and rightly ignore it. I must condense my findings into something simple. But one thing you need to know is how to gauge the health of an alkaline battery. You can do this by measuring its "voltage" using a simple meter. A fresh alkaline will have a battery voltage of between 1.5 to 1.6 volts. As the battery discharges, its voltage will slowly decrease. A half-discharged battery measures about 1.25 volts. When the battery is fully discharged, its voltage will measure about 1.0 volts (some might prefer 1.1 volts). These numbers are approximations, but are reasonably accurate.
Next, you must understand how a controller app determines the state of the battery of the ZSE40. It is NOT the app that does the measurement. It is the ZSE40 itself. It reads the batteries’ voltage, computes “something,” and then spits back a value between 0 to 100 to the app that specifies the batteries’ health, as a percentage. This is the number that you all read. From my above description of an alkaline battery’s state of health as measured by voltage, you would think that 100% would translate to a voltage of 1.5 to 1.6 volts, and that 0% would translate to a voltage of about 1.0 to 1.1 volts. You would THINK that, wouldn’t you?
Think again. For whatever reason, the hardware and/or firmware in the ZSE40 considers a battery voltage of 1.3 volts to be at 0%. As in “dead battery.” I’m here to tell all of you that an alkaline battery with 1.3 volts across it is quite healthy, having about 60-80% of its capacity still remaining. Yet, the Zooz ZSE40 translates any voltage of 1.3 volts or less as 0% remaining capacity. The sensor tells you to throw away your batteries when they in fact they are still very healthy, and commenters respond with “eats batteries!" You will notice that even though the controller app says your batteries are exhausted, the sensor still continues to work just fine. It only confirms that there is still a lot of gas left in their little tanks, despite what the gauge says! Once you see "0% capacity remaining," you have no idea if your batteries have 80% capacity remaining or 1% remaining. You're flying blind at this point.
A last point to be made is that the sensor ceases working when the battery voltage drops to 1.1 volts per cell. This shutoff leaves a bit more battery energy on the table, so it is a bit wasteful, too.
This, folks, is why many of you observe short battery life. It is not the fault of the app, it is not a coding error in your app, it is the fault of the ZSE40 sensor for reporting this erroneous number to the app. The app writers can only report the information that the sensor gives it, even if it is wrong. And it is.
I give it two stars because while the fuel gauge is thoroughly messed up, the sensors themselves are decent. Zooz should either update the firmware (mine is 16.09, BTW) or should not be shipping a product so flawed.
For those of you who want a bit more detail, here is how the sensor converts battery voltage (I’ll call it Vbatt) and Capacity remaining (I’ll call it CR, expressed in percent) as the ZSE40 passes it to your controller:
CR = (Vbatt - 1.3) * 500 (in percent)
Vbatt = (.002 * CR) + 1.3 (in volts, for 1.3V ≤ Vbatt ≤ 1.5V)
So 1.50V or higher reads as 100%, 1.46V reads as 80%, 1.42V reads as 60%, 1.38V reads as 40%, 1.34V reads as 20%, and 1.30V or less reads as 0%. If you understand anything about alkaline batteries, you know that these numbers are complete nonsense, as they paint just about any alkaline as far, far weaker than it really is.
