Designed to blend into any home and any décor, Aeotec Door / Window Sensor 6 has been engineered to make your home smarter.
With the Aeotec Door / Window Sensor 6, your Z-Wave smart home system will have intelligence on the specific doors or windows in your home.
It’ll know when they’re open. It’ll know when they’re shut. And it’ll know when they’ve been opened when they shouldn’t be.
Aeotec Door / Window Sensor 6 will provide intelligence to 2 of the core tasks that any smart home should be responsible for, the security and control of your home.
Is a door opened or closed? Is a window? Have they been opened when they shouldn't be?
Simple questions. Powerful questions.
Designed to blend into any home and any décor, Aeotec Door / Window Sensor 6 has been engineered to make your home smarter. Intelligence is what makes the connected home a smart one.
With Aeotec Door / Window Sensor 6, your Z-Wave system will have intelligence about the key doors and windows in your home. It'll know when they're open. It'll know when they're shut. And it'll know when they've been opened and they shouldn't be.
Aeotec Door / Window Sensor 6 will provide intelligence to 2 of the core tasks that any home intelligence system should be responsible for: its security and its control of your home.
With Z-Wave, your home is smarter. With Aeotec Door / Window Sensor 6, your Z-Wave security system is also smarter. Monitoring your entrances 24/7, this tiny sensor can detect when a door or window has been opened.
If your connected-alarm is armed, Aeotec Door / Window Sensor 6 can trip it, control lights and sirens, and send notifications about a potential emergency direct to your mobile phone.
Intelligence for more than just security, Aeotec Door / Window Sensor 6 can be used to manage your home in real-time. Able to control any other Z-Wave device, when something in your home is opened or closed you'll be able to control everything from welcome lights to thermostats, and to keep logs and send notifications.
Traditional security sensors have always been bulky. They've been stuck onto doors and windows, and they've stuck out over 1 inch. There's no nice way to say it: they've been ugly. Aeotec Door / Window Sensor 6 changes all that.
More than 50% thinner than its competition, Aeotec Door / Window Sensor 6 marries form with function. It offers the same, necessary functionality that you need from a security device but it packages it all within a beautifully designed device that is only 9mm deep and 72mm along the edge. It’s what we consider to be subtle security.
Any door. Any window. Any décor.
Designing a device that was small enough to not be noticed wasn't enough. Aeotec Door / Window Sensor 6 is nearly invisible.
Crafted from ABS plastic, Aeotec Door / Window Sensor 6 has been designed to be painted. So whether your door is white or wood, or whether your windows are dark aluminium or something more traditional, Aeotec Door / Window Sensor 6 can be painted to blend in. Finally, there's a security sensor designed to complement your décor.
Accuracy. Utter accuracy.
Despite being so slim, Aeotec Door / Window Sensor 6 doesn't compromise on accuracy or quality.
Whenever a door or window is opened, you want to know and this tiny sensor will detect it faultlessly. Aeotec Door / Window Sensor 6 is built with 2 powerful magnetic reed switches placed along its edge. They'll communicate with a provided slim-line magnet that measures only 0.09" / 2mm wide and can be placed up to 2.2cm / 0.9" away.
Batteries that last
You want intelligence from a sensor but not to have to change its batteries every few months. Built from technology originally designed for leading smart phones, Aeotec Door / Window Sensor 6 lasts over 1 year on windows and 10 months on frequently used doors. When it needs it, simply remove the sensor from its mounting plate and recharge it over a few hours via USB.
Aeotec Door / Window Sensor 6's perfect mix of slim design and strong battery performance is possible because it's powered by 500mAH batteries and Aeon Labs' Gen5 Z-Wave technology. That means a strong battery performance is coupled with wireless technology that uses 50% less power to communicate.
Simple to use. Just as simple to install.
To use it, all you have to do is open the door or the window its attached to. Installing Aeotec Door / Window Sensor 6 is just as easy.
Aeotec Door / Window Sensor 6 has been engineered with 3 parts; a sensor, an invisible mounting bracket and a slim magnetic shard. Each part isn't only responsible for making Aeotec Door / Window Sensor 6 so powerful, but also for making it so easy to install.
Both the mounting bracket and the magnetic shard can be installed in moments with options including double sided tape, tiny screws and even a dab of glue. Once that's done, the main sensor simply needs to be connected to a Z-Wave network and attached to its mounting plate. In minutes, you’re done.
Engineered to be smaller. Engineered to be better.
The better the wireless range, the more reliable the product, and Aeotec Door / Window Sensor 6 offers a class-leading antenna. Optimised for reliability, this tiny sensor can wireless communicate over 150 metres / 492 feet.
If you're using a sensor for security, you want its communication to be secure. That's why Aeotec Door / Window Sensor 6 utilises AES-128 wireless data encryption to keep it secure from prying eyes and hackers.
The best antenna. The best Z-Wave. Aeotec Door / Window Sensor 6 is built upon Z-Wave Plus and Aeotec’s leading Gen5 technology to offer you the fastest response times and optimal battery life between recharges.
Whether used for home intelligence or security, you want your sensor to always stay up to date. Whenever firmware udpdates are made for it, you'll be able to upgrade Aeotec Door / Window Sensor 6 via Microsoft Windows or select Z-Wave gateways.
