The Fibaro Zwave door sensor follows Fibaro's model of beautiful form and function. Primarily designed as a very compact door and window sensor, this unique device also has a wired input allowing a contact closure to trigger the sensor, and it can even be used as a temperature sensor with the addition of a DS18B20 temperature sensor (not included).Fibaro Zwave Sensor Features at a Glance:
- Very compact Zwave enabled door and window sensor
- Battery powered, lasts up to 2 years
- Can also be used on garage doors
- Wired input for contact closure trigger
- Add a push button and turn it in to a doorbell trigger or hold up button

As a door sensor you can have your automation system automatically turn on the lights when you get home. Or as a window sensor you can tell your system to turn of the air conditioning if a window gets opened.
You can get creative and add a push button to trigger a zwave 'silent alarm', having your system send you an email alert. Or use it as a doorbell button or even a call for service button.
If you add a DS18B20 temperature sensor, it can transmit temperature to your Zwave automation system.
