Frequently asked question
Just don't chew on the sensor. I'm sure it isn't packed with vitamins and fiber
No it does not use wires nor does it have contacts
Not sure what the published temperature is but I have it in a shed and it works year round without issue.

It works I found this in the q&a and it was extremely helpful with SmartThings. A: This unit looks identical to the BeSense sensor. It pairs perfectly when you select the native BeSense open/close sensor in Smarthings.
My Kaipule/BeSense sensor works perfectly07/09/2022Verified Purchase
I mounted this on my garage door. It tells me every time the door opens and closes. Sometimes there’s a 30-90 second delay. Not sure why.05/29/2022Verified Purchase
Better range than Zooz
I bought this because the Zooz sensor I wanted to get was out of stock. This thing is enormous, *but* it connected right away, and stayed connected even when I took it outside (under cover, it’s not designed to be weatherproof). When the Zooz sensor became available, I bought one, intending to replace this one with the smaller Zooz, inside a weatherproof case. Nope. As soon as I got it outside, the Zooz stopped responding. Exactly the same spot this one worked just fine, and it did nothing. I put this one back, it’s big for an open/close sensor, and there’s no weatherproof case, but it *works*.05/20/2022Verified Purchase
A potentially economical solution for a z-wave door or window sensor
I’m probably reviewing this device a little early because I haven’t put it into service yet. I will be using it with a custom application I wrote using the open-zwave library and an Aeotec Z-Stick as the controller. From running a minimal test program, it appears that the device supports the set of z-wave features it advertises and reacts quickly to the removal of the magnetic ‘wand’ that came with it. For now, I’m impressed at the functionality it provides for the relatively low cost.05/10/2022Verified Purchase
Easy Smartthings Setup
Easy setup with Smartthings.. connected first time. Instructions are a bit cryptic.04/18/2022Verified Purchase
No issues on SmartThings
I bought these sensors primarily since they were Z-Wave Plus and SmartThings-compatible. Previously, I had some of Samsung’s multipurpose Zigbee sensors, but they were incredibly unreliable and only accepted expensive coin-cell types of batteries (really dumb for devices that don’t have to be tiny, tiny). Unreliability is a no-go for me, so I’ve switched to Z-Wave devices mostly since it operates at 900 MHz, allowing for much less interference and longer range. In contrast to my previous sensors, these sensors have been 100% reliable so far, and they accept AAA batteries which last longer and are cheaper and more convenient to replace (you could even use Eneloop rechargeables, if you wanted). So far the adhesive pads have also been holding without any issues.
As long as you have a hub that is compatible with Z-Wave, I wouldn’t be too turned off by some of the negative ratings on this product (it is a small sample size, after all). At least with a vanilla SmartThings implementation, it’s a good bet that these sensors will be very reliable for you. The negative reviews mostly appear to be coming from other software ecosystems, which come with their own compatibility and reliability issues.04/06/2022Verified Purchase
