Z-Wave Plus Smart Door Sensor (32563)

The new patent-pending GE
branded Z-Wave Plus Smart Door Sensor
is the industry’s first
battery-operated door sensor that discreetly fits onto the home’s door
hinge to monitor the door opening and closing. The small, unobtrusive
sensor is fixed in place by the door hinge pin and moves with the door
without altering the room’s aesthetics. This innovative design means not
having to worry about wires, door trim or crown molding interfering with
the door sensor. By simply opening or closing the door, the sensor uses
Z-Wave technology to wirelessly trigger scenes throughout your home and
send and receive information to your Z-Wave hub, helping you stay safe
and in control of your home at all times. Automate your lights to turn
on and welcome you when you walk in, automatically adjust your smart
thermostat, receive alerts or trigger alarms when doors unexpectedly
open. The GE branded Z-Wave Plus Smart Door sensor works with leading
Z-Wave hub providers such as SmartThings, Train, LG, Nexia and many
others. The product MSRP is $39.99 and is available online at
ezzwave.com and amazon.com.

The GE branded Portable
Smart Motion Sensor

the next level. Placed in key locations like laundry rooms, hallways or
the garage, the Portable Z-Wave Motion Sensor can signal lights to turn
on and off based on occupancy, giving homeowners the convenience of
hands-free operation and added energy savings. The discreet, versatile
sensor can be mounted on the wall or ceiling or simply placed on a
shelf, table, or desk–making them perfect for any room with a 180-degree
detection range up to 45-feet away. The motion sensor can be powered by
