Z-Wave Plus Door/Window Sensor, NO LOGO
This Sensor mounts to a door or window, detects when it is opened or closed, and sends a Z-Wave® trigger signal to the network. It also has a tamper-proof switch, which will trigger a Z-Wave signal when the sensor's cap is removed. These trigger signals can be used to activate various other devices and perform preprogrammed tasks. When the sensor is included into a secured Z-Wave network, all communications will be encrypted using AES encryption.
Door/Window Sensor: This sensor mounts on a Door or Window and sends a Z-Wave Plus signal when it is opened and closed. This trigger signal can then be used to activate various other devices and perform preprogrammed tasks.
Z-Wave Plus: Z-Wave Plus® devices act as signal repeaters for the Z-Wave Plus network, so multiple devices result in more possible transmission routes, which helps eliminate RF "dead spots" in the network. Any Z-Wave Plus enabled device displaying the Z-Wave Plus logo can be used with Z-Wave Plus devices from other manufacturers.
Easy to Install: This sensor comes with everything you need to install it into an existing Z-Wave Plus network, including mounting screws and a battery.
Z-Wave Plus is a low power mesh networking communications technology that allows Z-Wave Plus enabled devices to communicate with each other and to distribute Z-Wave Plus messages throughout the network.
Z-Wave Plus products are fully backward compatible with classic Z-Wave products. Z-Wave Plus has longer battery life, faster operation, better RF coverage, and easier installation.

Questions and Answers
If you wanted it to emit a sound you could likely come up with something via triggers in you z-wave hub, but I don't have any details more than that.
Unlike those other Monoprice z-wave sensors, the terminals on these don't actually work. I ordered 4 and none read "closed" when the terminals were shorted. Monoprice replaced them with four new ones, none of which worked either.
Product support then confirmed that this was a design issue and should be updating the documentation accordingly. They said a redesign would be unlikely.
So be warned if you want to use the terminals inside these new z-wave plus sensors as they aren't functional.
Otherwise, the sensor worked with the included magnet as expected. Can't speak for the "plus" features as I didn't hold on to them long enough to evaluate battery life and I have no range issues with my existing sensors.
The last page of the manual explains that the External Sensor is disabled by default, but it can be enabled by changing configuration parameter 0x01 to 0xFF. (0x00 is disabled)
It's really easy to miss that sentence because it's no where near the instructions for using the external sensors.
The other confusing part about the External Sensor is that when it's enabled, the device will not report closed unless the normal sensor and external sensor are closed. Opening either sensor will cause it to switch back to open, but both sensor report the same message so there's no way to determine which one opened.
SmartThings users can use the Community Created Device Type Handler called "Monoprice Z-Wave Plus Door/Window Sensor", created by Kevin LaFramboise, to enable/disable the external sensor, change the wakeup interval, and utilize the Tamper Alert capability.

PROS: The first one was included (paired) quickly and after that I knew which one they were which made pairing the remainder even quicker. They work as expected and trigger the bell and alarm..
CONS: Came back to buy more and they're OOS. Guess I bought them all!?
Works with SmartThings
CONS: A little frustrating to connect, but works at the end of the day

Assembly and setup were very straightforward. The box comes with the Sensor, Magnet, Magnet mounting bracket, an instruction manual, battery (CR123A), and fasteners (3M double-sided tape and a pair of screws sized for both the sensor and magnet).
I've had no range issues with the devices and my Smartthings hub in a 1600 sq ft single story home.

I like Monoprice Z-wave products so this just pushed me to buy a SmartThings Hub this week since reports indicate this device works with SmartThings and I needed an excuse to upgrade hub anyway.
I am giving it 5 stars because I assume it will work great with SmartThings. If it does not, I will be back with an update.
