Designed as an add-on accessory for the Piper HD Camera and Home Automation Hub, Piper's Z-Wave Door/Window Sensor is a two-unit wireless sensor that consists of a main sensor unit and a magnet unit. This Z-Wave-enabled sensor sends open/close notification alerts to your Android and iOS smart devices when its integrated into the Piper Home Automation hub. In order for this device to be fully functional, it must be connected to the Piper hub's Wi-Fi network. The sensor's wireless communication range is approximately 65'. The sensor is powered by two AAA batteries which last on average about two years due to the device's low power draw.
In order to gain remote access to the sensor's status, you must download the free Piper mobile app. Once a direct connection is established from the downloaded app on your Android or iOS smart device, the Z-wave sensor will begin communicating its status. You can choose to receive a text, email or push notification when the sensor's associated door or window is open or closed. However, keep in mind that you will not be able to remotely open or close the door or window as this sensor is only capable of alerting you to its state. Two AAA batteries, mounting screws, and double-sided tape are included to facilitate setup and installation.
