Ecolink Tilt Sensor (ECO-TILT-US)

The Ecolink Tilt Sensor (ECO-TILT-US) is a Z-Wave-based device that can be used to measure the mounted angle of garage doors. In other words, when your garage door opens or closes, the sensor will tilt and send you an alert.

Combine the tilt sensor with a Z-Wave relay to remotely close and open your garage door (some installation and DIY know-how required).
