    The new Zooz Motion Sensor is what happens when user feedback meets the latest advancements in Z-Wave technology. Not only is it a razor-sharp motion detector, it comes with a variety of new and time-tested features for ultimate convenience and reliability.

    For starters, AES signal encryption is now paired with the S2 authenticated security protocol for advanced protection. The device can be powered by either battery or micro USB - use one power source at a time. As an added bonus, the sensor acts as a signal repeater when connected to USB! Its visual range test tool, auto-inclusion option, and flexible magnetic mount make it super easy to add to your Z-Wave hub and very quick to install.

    Once included, use it in a variety of scenes and rules that could benefit from a precise motion sensor. Trigger a Z-Wave alarm if motion is detected unexpectedly in your home. Use movement to activate lights and thermostats instantly, and save a bunch on your energy bills in the process. If you’re a pet owner, no worries! Choose from a spectrum of 8 sensitivities to create the perfect Z-Wave companion for your household.


    Before installing your Motion Sensor in its final location, you’ll need to add it to your Z-Wave network.

    To auto-include the device, put your Z-Wave hub into inclusion/pairing mode (see your hub’s manual for specifics – every brand is different!). Twist the sensor’s cover counter-clockwise to open it and access the battery. Remove the plastic battery tab from the battery compartment. This will activate the battery and put the device into inclusion mode. A new motion sensor should appear on your hub’s device list within 30 seconds.

    To include the device manually, make sure the battery is inserted correctly and put the hub into inclusion/pairing mode. Press and release the Z-Wave button 3 times quickly (the button is next to the battery compartment). Once included successfully, a new motion sensor will appear on your hub’s device list.

    You can use the included screw or adhesive tape to secure the magnetic base to any clean, dry, and flat surface. We find that it’s best to mount the device within 20 feet of a door (or your target area) and around 7 feet from the ground. After that, simply attach the sensor to the magnetic base and position it anyway you’d like.


    NOTE: If you don't see your Z-Wave controller on the list above, please contact us before you purchase this product.

    Zooz ZEN71 and ZEN72 Switches

    I have installed over 100 of these switches in my 5600 sqft house. I automate them using Home Assistant and everything works perfectly. The feature set of these switches are amazing for the price and the reliability has been 100%.

    Great little sensor

    Super happy with this little sensor. The magnetic base with the ball sensor is super clever. It reacts fast and tells Homeassistant to flip on a light with very little delay.

    Working great so far!

    Bought these to replace a couple Aqara motion sensors with Home Assistant. No issues so far, fast and reliable motion detection.

    Zooz 800 Z-Wave motion sensor...a good solid product

    I've tried a few others, but the ZSE-18 is the best, IMHO. It's fast and solid with many configuration options, including motion sensitivity. To be honest, I already had one that's used in the garage, and this one is being used in the front porch. I don't buy twice what doesn't work once.

    As for SmartestHouse, I've purchased from here before. I haven't had a need to require additional support, but I can say the shipping is prompt and my experiences have been very positive.
