Ecolink Door/Window Sensor (DWZWAVE2-ECO)

If you're concerned about security, you might be interested in a sensor that will let you monitor entry points to your home. Or, you might be looking for convenient ways to automate your lights and appliances based on behavior in your home.

The Ecolink Door/Window Sensor (DWZWAVE2-ECO) allows you to do these things and more by keeping track of the open/closed status of doors and windows throughout your home. Combined with SmartThings, this Z-Wave sensor can be used to turn your lights on or off, adjust your thermostat, send notifications, sound alarms, or do all sorts of other things when a door or window opens or closes.
