The FIBARO Z-Wave D/W Sensor 2 is a smart magnetic door/window sensor capable of sending binary ON/OFF commands wirelessly using the Z-Wave network (AUS/NZ version 921.42 MHz) when it is triggered.
The detector consists of two magnetic units, one is placed on the moving part of the door or window and the other on the frame. The sensor expands the capabilities of your Z-Wave system by monitoring the opening of doors, windows and garage doors.
The FIBARO Z-Wave D/W Sensor 2 can be used to automatically turn on lights, turn wireless switches ON/OFF and for security applications within the Z-Wave network. It is also useful for climate control systems, monitoring whether any doors or windows are open to ensure that your air-conditioning is not operating when it is not efficient to do so.
This sensor includes a built in temperature sensor which further extends your Z-Wave network’s climate control capabilities by allowing it to detect the exact temperature in your home.
