Samsung SmartThings Presence Sensor

The Samsung SmartThings Presence Sensor lets you stay connected to people, pets, and even cars by notifying you when they arrive and leave home. You can also trigger other smart devices to perform different actions when the Presence Sensor comes in and out of the range of the SmartThings Hub: automatically turn the lights on or off, lock or unlock the front door, adjust the thermostat, and more. If you misplace your keys, the Presence Sensor can even beep to guide you to the key ring it’s on.

With the Samsung SmartThings Presence Sensor, you will always know when your loved ones are at home safe and sound, giving the whole family peace of mind.
