They work pretty well. The leads make good contact with the floor and they will report status to the insteon hub.

Don't think so. Insteon is a different frequency than Zwave & Zigbee

Motion Sensors have pretty bad reviews. Anyone have good luck with them?

Insteon is proprietary. If you don't have Insteon hub/switches/gear this won't work for you. If you do though, it's a great deal on reliable gear

Wondering same thing. Yes, and I'm not going to be my usual grumpy self but try to say something positive. The hub isn't as expensive as others, in regards to full MSRP, and it does work with both iOS and Android. The same sight as this deal has the hub for $20 off, @ $79.99 (I'll include link below for everyone).
https://www.smarthome.com/insteon...2-hub.html

I don't know this brand at all and won't speak to it from that standpoint but, assuming the Insteon is, at least, as good as comparable hubs (like SmartThings or Logitech or the full size Alexa hub) then if one looks at doing an ENTIRE home, NOT "patching" existing hubs functions with these sensors wouldn't make the prices quite as "desirable", considering the price for the hub and each add on, then it's more affordable than certainly, Samsung's.

The hub description mentions having dual bands (assuming it means it works on 2.4 and 5 GHz) which isn't always a given and is a nice bonus.

All in all, not a bad alternative if you don't need or don't care about the extra things the other brands offer which certainly as vital as these which are security focused.

Look I did it! I said nice things lol Smilie
