Deal Details

Last Edited by mlacey3 July 25, 2016 at 08:12 AM
Monoprice has a new Z-Wave Plus® Recessed Door/Window Sensor for $24 after using the code Sizzlin for 15% off, valid through July 25. This appears to come with caps that are white and brown so you can swap it as needed. I ordered a few the other day at a slightly higher price from them but they haven't arrived yet. This is still a lot cheaper then the other recessed sensors on the market and it's the newer standard. I like the recessed style so it's hidden and also because I have some doors where the casing is too tight for the magnetic style. Here's the link: http://www.monoprice.com/mobile/p...id=1091804

Do you have to drill in your door to get it to fit?

argh! I hate that stupid cr-2 battery. Why couldn't they use a AA or AAA like a normal person!

I wish my Anderson doors were built to accept these without drilling.

If you don't like this style they also have the regular version that mounts on the outside of the door/window on sale as well (code 'sizzlin'). There's the Plus version (which is the newer standard with better battery life and distance) for $23:

Looks exactly like the two aeotech recessed sensors I installed this weekend. I wonder if smartthings will treat them like aeotech so I can add natively....

I need like two more of these things.

Oh, and the CR2 batteries are 3v where as AA,AAA are only 1.5 volt. That's why. Plus it would have to be longer to fit those batteries. They suggest installing the sensor in the door frame. Depending on the frame, that whole might not be able to go deep. Personally I put the sensor in the door and the magnet in the frame. Sure, I'll need a step ladder to change batteries, but I also don't have to worry about depth.

so many uses for this technology. I put sensor in my mailbox to let me know when mail is delivered. also I put one in my groundhog trap to let me know when it is triggered , since I can't see it under my deck

The wholesale price for them is about $10 a pop, but you have to buy hundreds or thousands to get them at that price. So you're correct, it's unlikely that, unless something changes, you'll ever see even the old units at $10 each.

Except for HD clearance. I got few primium GoControl packs for $50 each. 3 door sensors, motion sensor and siren. The siren was an easy resale @ $30.

I agree. The Milgard windows are the same. Looks like you have to drill a hole. But I believe that voids the warranty.
