Z-Wave Door Sensors

In a Z-Wave automated home, users are alerted electronically to any changes, problems, or anything else that may compromise your home’s functioning. Z-Wave, a robust, lightweight wireless signal that operates on a different frequency than your WIFI signal, allows devices and systems throughout the home – including Z-Wave fans, lights, and door sensors – to communicate with each other in order to provide a seamless, automated experience tailored precisely for the homeowner.

There are many reasons to transition to a smart home, but the most frequently cited reasons are boosted security and enhanced cost- and energy-efficiency. Smart homeowners save money because appliances are never used unnecessarily. Lights aren’t left on, the sprinkler shuts off when rain is predicted, and the Z-Wave door sensor ensures that the heat is lowered and lights are dimmed when the user – the homeowner – is out. .

A Z-Wave-enabled home can streamline your life in myriad ways. If you’re caring for an elderly relative, for example, a Z-Wave sensor could alert you to strange activity – especially if your loved one takes a fall or attempts to leave the premises. Children and pets left at home are similarly cared-for, with any unexpected entrance or departure documented.

Consumers love the Z-Wave Door and Window sensors by Z-Wave, which are consistently rated highly for their ease of use and installation. Ecolink’s Door and Window Sensor packages are also enthusiastically reviewed by consumers; they tend to be affordable, easy to install, and highly intuitive, working as soon as they’re installed to “learn” their users’ behavior and patterning. The Vision Z-Wave PLUS Recessed Door and Window Sensor represents the very latest in Z-Wave sensor technology, and GOCONTROL offers an affordable “Security Suite,” which packages two door-window sensors and a motion sensor for a complete home security solution at a reasonable price.

Z-Wave door sensors – and an entirely Z-Wave enabled home – will probably cost less than you think. Because Z-Wave’s solutions are designed with the user in mind, they tend to be easy to install and troubleshoot. The Z-Wave network, a robust wireless network that will not interfere with your family’s WIFI, is easy to set up, and it's even easier to add devices to your Z-Wave network one by one. As devices are added – smart light switches, door sensors, motion sensors, and water gauges – the Z-Wave network is strengthened, because the more devices you add, the more robust your network. Each device sends a signal through the next device, so although your Z-Wave “hub” may have a reach of fifty or a hundred feet, your “mesh” network of devices means that the scope of the network is actually much broader.

Z-Wave is committed to designing smart home solutions that are “future-proof.” Because Z-Wave products are streamlined and simple – not a lot of buttons, not a lot of fuss – there is less likelihood of device failure, and less to fix if something should ever go wrong. And since the Z-Wave network is designed to work with a wide range of devices, from the brand-new to the not-so-new, a high level of compatibility is a verified component of the rigid Z-Wave certification process that every Z-Wave device, include Z-Wave door sensors, must undergo.

Z-Wave’s products website provides a comprehensive overview of available door sensors products, Z-Wave door sensor suppliers, and Z-Wave tech support contacts. Z-Wave certified door sensors are listed, priced, and reviewed by Z-Wave consumers on the Z-Wave website. For more reviews and possibly a broader selection of Z-Wave door sensors, approach Amazon’s website for recent pricing and constantly updated consumer reviews. Home Depot offers a great selection of Z-Wave door sensors and other products, so don’t be afraid to visit your local store for a personalized consultation.
