Note: NYCE sensors purchased from Control4 or Lowe's (packaging indicates “Works with Iris”) WILL NOT work with SmartThings. Only NYCE’s HA devices are compatible with SmartThings and can be purchased from Amazon.
The NYCE Door/Window Sensor combines the features of a door/window sensor and a ZigBee radio into one single tiny device. It can alert you if a door, window, or cabinet opens or closes, and it can also trigger lights and alarms to turn on or off using the SmartThings app. The components are tiny but hugely useful.
Note: The NYCE Door/Window Sensor is not an officially supported Works with SmartThings device. You can connect it to your SmartThings Classic setup, but performance may vary and we will not be able to provide support or assistance.
