$20 on Amazon — on Mobile, so I only did a quick search for duplicate posts, but I think this is about as low as I've seen it without having to buy them in lots of 3 or 5.

Then again, the MSRP is showing $25, which is lower than it was when I bought it (could've sworn it was $40), so maybe this is the new normal.

I just swapped out all my ring cams for nest, well the ring floodlight cam I keept bc it has a siren function to it(also way more difficulties with uninstalling).., I'm sure I can make a few with $250 it cost me..

TL;DR here's my issues with ring after owning them a year

App can be glitchy and slow initial connection. I like to see video right away, like nest

The notification is 3 super long seconds of vibration from my phone. Got annoying to the point I didn't care if I got robbed and turned it off. You can not change it.


Doesn't do 24/7 recording...the time length it records can be random but the MOST I ever had it record for bc motion was ~60 seconds.
So I'm just waiting for a car thief is that is forced to steal 50 luxury vehicles in one night in order to save the life of his brother, who has fallen foul of a dangerous crime lord. Once the most successful car thief in California, now he must reassemble his old gang to fulfil the almost impossible mission. His task is further hampered by a rival band of thieves and, of course, the local police while being gone in ~60 seconds. But if they are over that the Ring won't get it see it bc it stops at 60 sec.



All in-in all I'm sticking with Nestholas Cage.👍

Good price, not such a good sensor. Samsung has replaced mine twice for bad data/sensor failure (like reporting the temperature as 410 degrees F). Solid customer support though.

Only have one for now, but so far it has worked perfectly.
Interesting to hear such high failure rate for others. Indoor/outdoor use? anything especially rough on it?
my only complaint was one time it was really hot and the glue/backing seemed to melt and it fell. Stuck it back on and working fine.

Nope, it was mounted on a door in an interior part of the house. They both worked perfectly, until they didn't. Very sudden failures that Samsung was not able to explain or resolve.

Been smart things user for 3 years now. These sensors can be unreliable. I have 8 of these and 4 have already failed in the course of 2 years. Samsung replace 1 since it was under 1 year warranty. I'm going to try monoprice recessed sensors now.

These are a fail for SmartThings. 2 out of four going bad in a year.
Can anybody recommend a garage door sensor for SmartThings that I can set and forget for a bit?

Well.. my advice is don't buy monoprice one. I installed mine like 1 yr ago and it's not reliable at all and monoprice customer service so suck that they just want to get rid of you instead of helping.

100% correct...I prefer Monorpice than these unreliable smartthings sensors or door.

I bought this to monitor my daughters room temp so that when it gets to warm the AC turns on. I have 2 different sensors in her room and so far the smartthings sensor is spot on with the other. Here's hoping it lasts long. I've had my sensor push temp sensor for a few years now and it has never given me a problem, but it does not work with smartthings.

I've had great success with the iris (centralite) sensors. Haven't had one fail in 6 months of use thus far.

Does these use zigbee tech? Or are they Z-wave? Anybody knows?
