  • USB powered Z-Wave door/window sensor?

    Does such a thing exist?

    I have several of the HS-MS100+ motion sensors as well as their Zooz brand equivalents. These motion sensors can be either battery or USB powered, I really like having them USB powered as they become a repeating node and it has greatly improved my network health.

    I have an opportunity now to provide similar USB/5V power to a door sensor and was wondering if anyone knew of any brand of door sensor that provides a similar function? Ie accepts USB power and behaves as a repeating node when powered this way.

    I don't know if it would be good to continuously power it. But the Aeotec has a rechargeable battery but I don't know if it repeats when plugged in or not??

      Ive installed 4 of these at a friends house, he charges them every 6 months or so and has not had any issues with them.
      Much better than the evespring stuff i have installed, im considering doing the switch at some point this year.

        I like how they claim they are the smallest, but I think the sensative ones are more discreet and claim a 10 year battery life: https://sensative.com/strips/ -> Direct link: https://sensative.com/strips/guard/)

        if it weren't for he price I would have 2 of those on every window (double hung windows here), but at $55 each they are a bit pricey for that.
        Thanks,
        Frank

          A few years ago (before sensative existed) they were "the smallest" Z-Wave contact sensors.
