Between Aeotec and Samsung, we are vastly different businesses with different models and different scale. Our model is built solely on IoT related products. On account of of not manufacturing millions of white goods per annum, we’re unable to command the same price at the time of manufacture and this is reflected in our pricing.

Do you need a hub for this to work or can I connect it to my echo or smart things on my phone

Mine is connected to Smart things

Are these sensors waterproof ? Can they be installed outside on a gate ?

Not sure if they’re actually outdoor rated but I use them outdoors and they hold up just fine in the rain, heat and cold. They are pretty much the same as the Samsung version.

Can this be used as a presence sensor? I want to use this as a secondary information point to a multi-conditional automation to open a garage door.

No this doesn't detect motion. It can be used to detect a normal window/door sensor with the magnet or as a tilt sensor for a garage overhead door.

    Identical to the Samsung branded ones

    These are great for gates, doors, etc. I was bummed when Samsung stopped making them but Aotec has carried the torch. They’re a little more expensive but if you’ve used them before you know how good they are. I mostly use them as entry sensors but they can be used for temperature, vibration or position. Battery life is so-so. Have to change these out every couple of months.

    Works with no issue with SmartThings

    I’m totally blind.
    The first thing is when I got this out of the box, has a hard time determining how the get the cover off of it to feel the battery. Then had a hard time determining where the reset button was to be able to press it to reset it. It is a little tiny whole on the cut off flat side to be able to reset the sensor.
    Affter that, I got it online to the SmartThings with no issue. I couldn’t figure out using IDE how to get the switch to go into garage mode from door sensor mode. I ended up having to use the SmartThings App on my phone to be able to do that. Messed around with that a good hour.
    Next created 2 routinge within Alexa to tell me when the door is open or closed. I didn’t find out that the sensor isn’t real responcive. So it doesn’t detect when the door is starting to open. Look like it only detects it is open when the sensor is flat on its face and close when it is standing on its side. I also found out that the flat side must be pointing to either the LEFT or RIGHT for the sensor to work correctly in garage door mode. If the flat side is down or up, it will not work. Determined all of this just by playing with the sensor with the Alexa routines running. Again probably took me another 1our or so to determine how the sensor works. Instructions wern’t helpful to a person that is totally blind.
    What I don’t like is the sensor is meant to be put on the door with double sided sticky tape. I wish it had a mounting plate that you could mount to the door and then clip the sensor into it. This will be going on a metel door. So even magnets would be better then double sided sticky tape.
    I’ve not put this on the garage door as of yet! But just playing with it, I could guess the door would have to be about half way open before the sensor would trigger saying it is open if you use an Alexa routine. It would probably have to be all the way closed before it would say it is closed. Not put it on the door as of yet being I’m getting a new door and being this uses double sided tape! Wouldn’t be able to use it and then pull it off and restick it. This is why I said magnet would be better.

    Doesn't state that you need a hub to use it!

    Thought this would be a quick fix for me but I go to hook it up to the smart things app that my TV and stove are connected to and it says I need a hub for the sensor to work! That’s at least 140$ ! I don’t need a hub for the other things to work!

    Works even when not perfectly aligned

    I have quite a few of these and in some cases, I cant alight the two ends together perfectly, yet the magnet inside is strong enough that they don’t have to be near-touching to sense that the door/window is closed.

    Temperature monitoring is not very accurate

    It’ll tell you if your house is on fire or Frozen but doesn’t get very granular for any important temperatures
