couldn't find anything from searching in Android app.

Similar to last deal, 30% off on z-wave products. I checked some and prices look similar to last deal.

Is this really a sale or are the prices like $1 or $2 less than the "everyday" price when they aren't having a sale? 30% off MSRP is definitely misleading because these are never sold at MSRP on monoprice....

The $19.99 Z-Wave Plus Wall Socket Plug-in is usually $20.99.... bit misleading. But still a buck off normal price at least. Thanks OP.

Yes, kind of. About a $1 less on most products vs. the last time they were on sale a couple of weeks ago. They seem to routinely go on sale.

I will say that if you plan on using these on a Smartthings hub, you need to do your homework. From the last sale, I bought the PIR multisensor. I tried every free device handler I could find and none of them could get the sensor to function properly. The "best" was one by Ken for the Zooz device that looks similar, but even it couldn't get all the functions to work. The only way I could find was to purchase a DH from Rboy at $25 additional to the cost of the sensor. I paid $27 and change for the sensor and would have to pay $25 for the DH bringing the total to $53 and change. You could buy the Zooz sensor from smartest house for $35 and use the free device handler and come out cheaper to get a sensor that works properly. In my opinion Monoprice is screwing people with this "exclusive" partnership with Rboy. Just pay a little more upfront for a device you can actually use.

Well $1 off certainly isn't slick.

I noticed the device handler not being free during the last sale. Thanks to your homework I think it is a safe to say that these aren't the z-wave products for me.

The plug-in socket I mentioned for $20 works natively without any custom handlers

Not that much of a sale on its own, but pretty good paired up with that 50 off 150 masterpass.

Does the garage door sensor work fine with the free device handlers? It doesn't say anything about Rboy apps on the page for that item. If it works by itself then $19 free shipping for that is probably worth it.

I feel (felt) your pain ispeed! This was my same experience with their 4-in-1 PIR multisensor, except I balked at paying Rboy another $25, and just returned it for refund instead (bought it via Amazon). It was easily the most painful "thing" to try getting working properly with my Smartthings v2 hub. Btw Monoprice was pretty slow in issuing my refund as well.

I have the recessed door/window sensors and the brick like receptacle. Both work with the smartthings hub natively without paying rboy or whomever more for a handler.
