    Z-Wave Plus Door/Window Sensor, NO LOGO

    Z-Wave Plus Door/Window Sensor

    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
    Z-Wave Plus
    Easy to Install
    Door/Window Sensor
    Z-Wave Plus
    Easy to Install

    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.

    Low Power

    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.

    Backwards Compatible

    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.

    What are the dimensions?
    A shopper on Nov 26, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: The Sensor is 3 1/2" Long x 1" wide x 3/4" deep
    Can anyone answer the Z-Stick S2 compatibility question?
    John H on Dec 17, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, thank you for your question. The Z-Wave Plus Door/Window Sensor is compatible with a wide range of Z-wave hubs/controllers including the Z-stick. I would recommend following the proper inclusion and exclusion process as stated in the manual specific to your controller in order to add the sensor.
    Can these be used outside on a fence gate.? Will rain or the elements affect its operation
    A shopper on Dec 17, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Keep in mind though that batteries typically don't do well in cold weather. So the battery performance for the sensor will likely be poor if it gets cold. I don't have any specific numbers at this time, but it is something to keep in mind with battery powered devices that are outside.
    The user manual included with the sensor has extremely small print, so is difficult to read. Is the manual available on-line?
    Steven K on May 18, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, at the moment we do not have the manual available on our website. Feel free to contact our technical support team for further assistance in regards to obtaining the documentation via any of the methods available here:


    Thank you!
    Do these sensors support the S2 Framework? (Smartthings hub)
    A shopper on Jun 7, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. This Z-Wave sensor would be compatible with Smartthings. I would recommend following the proper inclusion and exclusion process as stated in the manual specific to your controller in order to add the sensor.
    Will this work with a Piper system?
    A shopper on Dec 12, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: I don't have a Piper system, but since Piper utilizes Z-wave it should work just fine as a door/window sensor.
    Does this device have battery monitoring.. Or whether it reports that the battery is low?
    A shopper on Jun 25, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I'm using it with Smartthings and I do get notifications when the battery is low. Normally at 10%.
    This unit has the ability to have an external sensor, but that is disabled by default. I am not having any luck enabling the external feature. Has anyone else had any luck?
    Chad R on Sep 19, 2017
    Does it have any sound/beep/audio ?
    A shopper on May 2, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: No sound. There is a light on the unit, but the way I have it setup I do not see it.

    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.
    Can these be used on garage doors to tell if they are open or closed?
    Ajay A on Aug 29, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes it can be used on garage doors. But make sure you get a zwave signal out to your garage. You might need a repeater or plug in module to expand you zwave outdoors.
    What is the difference between this item # 15270 and #24259?
    A shopper on Dec 9, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: One obvious difference is the battery used to power the sensor. #15270 uses 1x Lithium 123 battery, while #24259 uses 2x AAA Alkaline batteries.
    Hi does this item has the feature to monitor the battery life or whether to report that the battery is low?
    A shopper on Jun 25, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: yes, you can have the device report its battery status. It depends on the platform and the device handler too.
    Do these work as repeaters in a z-wave plus setup? I've seen conflicting information that battery operated z-wave plus are not repeaters.
    David F on Feb 20, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: No. Battery operated devices don't act as repeaters due to the detriment it would have on said battery life.
    What is the connectivity range in feet?
    Neal R on Aug 6, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Mine is on the front door, which is about 55'- 60' from the panel. It doesn't work 100% of the time. There are no Z-Wave devices between the front door and the panel, which would probably help, since they are supposed to act as relays.
    Does the internal board have connection points to allow connecting existing prewired sensors?
    A shopper on Jul 23, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes it does. You just have to poke out a small bit of plastic to feed wires through to the board.
    I purchased two of these. The first switch installed as a generic z-wave switch. Has anyone else experienced this and I'm assuming a reset is the way to correct the situation?? That's my first issue. The second switch installed as a Z-Wave Plus Door/Window Sensor as it should. But it appears open in SmartThings when it's closed and closed when it is open. How do I correct that? I'm using a v2 SmartThings Hub. Thanks in advance for help on both of these.

    Doesn't work with external switches
    This sensor, like the non-plus version it replaced (PID 10795) and the non-plus garage door sensor (PID 11987), has terminals inside to connect an external switch and instructions on how to use it in this fashion. A common use case would be to add z-wave functionality to existing wired reed switches many houses have from legacy security systems.

    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.

    DOES work with external switches/sensors
    I almost didn't purchase this because of the review that said the external switches didn't work, but I'm glad I did because if your controller supports changing configuration parameters, the external switches/sensor can be enabled.

    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.

    Work as Expected
    I got 10 of these to put on the windows and doors on my house and connected them to a Vera Plus Controller and trigger an AEOTEC Door Bell and Siren. I wish Monoprice sold more Z-Wave products because the selection here is quite limited but the prices are very good as expected from Monoprice. After Inclusion in my system I came to find out that they are actually Vision ZD2102US-5 senors which are sold elsewhere for $20 more. I've installed all 10 and all 10 work great!

    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 on SmartThings after a little frustration
    The sensors connected to SmartThings on the first try. Unfortunately, the devices never registered as closed. After a little trial and error, I deleted the devices from SmartThings Hub, then started over. The second try allowed the devices to connect and show open/closed. Overall, satisfied for the money.

    PROS: Cheap
    Nice build
    Works with SmartThings

    CONS: A little frustrating to connect, but works at the end of the day

    Works great with Smartthings
    Very easy to pair with Smartthings.... One note though, I saw comments stating that people were able to pair the sensor but then could not get it to show the closed command (the open/close reporting was not working). To fix this you must remember to snap the back of the sensor together before trying the open/ close with the magnet, there is a tamper switch inside the sensor that must be closed in order for the reporting to work.

    Works exactly as expected
    I got these to put on my closet doors, so the closet lights will go on when I open the closet, and turn off when I close the closet. They work perfectly with about less than a second delay.

    Z-Wave Plus Door/Window Sensor, NO LOGO
    This works well. I gave it 4/5 stars, because of some issues including it with my Homeseer system. One of the child devices did not get made., no matter how many times I excluded it and re-installed it.

    2 weeks in - so far so good
    I ordered several of these to use with my Samsung Smartthings Hub. The setup was straightforward and easy! I can't speak for the external switch functionality, as I did not wire them up.

    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.
