The Z-Wave Door and Window Sensor by FIBARO is more than a simple sensor
It can also be used as a temperature sensor with a DS18B20 Temperature Sensor (NOT included) or as way of joining additional sensors or switches into your Z-wave network.
The Door/window sensor is a battery powered reed sensor. Its operation under the z-wave standard guarantees compatibility with the FIBARO Intelligent System and other Z-Wave gateways. The sensor expands the capabilities of the system by monitoring the opening of doors, windows and garage doors. It is used in automatic light control, access control and home security systems. Installation of the Door / Window Sensor in your home increases the safety and comfort of its inhabitants. It also eliminates the risk of high fees for heating or air conditioning. In addition, the module can be equipped with a temperature sensor, and use the built-in binary input.
Reed sensor Installation of reed sensors in your home will provide the HOME CENTER 2 with additional information, which can be used to control other components within the FIBARO system. The module checks the condition of the opening and closing of any window or door. An opened window canl prevent the system from launching heating or air conditioning in a particular room. Therefore, you will not be exposed to unnecessary costs. When mounting reed sensor on the front door, you can turn on the lights automatically when opening the door and/or run a pre-programmed scene e.g. "Return home". In addition, the Door / Window Sensor can be used as an unauthorized intrusion alarm sensor. These are just some of the capabilities of the Door / Window Sensor.
Wireless entry sensor The Door/Window Sensor may be used together with the HOME CENTER 2 to control other features
Once the Door/Window Sensor input is connected with a typical wall switch it can control other devices within the FIBARO system. The idea behind it is to enable the user to place a previously unplanned switch in a chosen location without ever having to wire cables. The number and location of existing switches no longer limit the arrangement of your interior. The Door/Window Sensor can easily and non-intrusively take up the role of this element of the home electrical system.
Pre programed scenes switch The Door / Window Sensor has a unique feature in which it can automatically trigger pre-programmed scenes
To start a scene on the level of electrical installation has been difficult until now. It required a FIBARO module, previously installed in an electrical device, which would then start a scene. This solution was not intuitive enough so to meet customer demand we gave the Door / Window Sensor the additional functionality to start scenes. Simply connect a traditional light switch or any sensor (e.g. motion detector) to the FIBARO module to trigger a pre-programmed scene to start. Therefore you can create a wireless, battery powered switch for multiple devices ready to work within a short time.
