    Can this device utilize rechargeable cr123a batteries rated at 3.7v as opposed to the standard disposable lithium 3.0v cells it comes with?
    A shopper on Jan 20, 2017
    Will this work with Wink 2? I see one reviewer saying it didn't work with the original Wink.
    Robert T on Feb 5, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Confirmed with monoprice and wink. Only the temp sensors works with the wink 2 at this time. The motions sensor does not.
    Is additional s/w (i.e. RBoy Apps) required to simply report temp and humidity to a Samsung SmartThings hub? Can those values be accessed via the SmartThings App?
    Harris G on Oct 14, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, smartthing can capture the temp readings.
    Why don't you provide the SmartThings device handler to make this product fully compatible with a SmartThings hub?
    A shopper on Nov 13, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Because they are a retailer and not a den of programmers. Also, it works great with the stock DH in SmartThings: "Z-Wave Plus Motion/Temp Sensor".
    How to determine firmware using HomeSeer 3? How to update firmware? Where do you get firmware?
    Dave K on Dec 13, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Sorry, I don't know, I'm on Vera+ and haven't connected it yet.
    Can't get it paired with Vera Edge controller. Have tried pushing button 1x and 10x. Anyone have any suggestions?
    A shopper on Dec 3, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: All I know is that I got it working with a Vera Edge controller. I would start from the beginning, and/or perhaps try deleting the device, and resetting the unit by holding in the include/exclude button for 30 seconds or more. Then try again. It worked for me eventually. Also, try Vera support -- it's probably on their side if you're having difficulties.
    What are the dimensions of this sensor?
    Joseph B on Nov 27, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: It's 2-5/16 wide, 3-5/16 high, and 1-7/8 deep at the deepest point. That's 60mm x 84mm x 49mm. There is a separate mounting bracket - a flat piece of white plastic with curved sides - that adds about 2-5mm of depth depending on whether you screw it in or use tape.
    For Vera Lite, I was able to add it but unable to get this sensor function. Any ideas?
    A shopper on Mar 17, 2017
    Can this be configured to ignore pets in the home?
    A shopper on Dec 19, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Yes. I have a large cat that triggers all "non-pet" detector. This one has a sensitivity switch, although it's poorly documented in the manual that comes with the unit.
    Can this be used outdoors under a covered deck?
    A shopper on Nov 30, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: I have one of these mounted under the eves to alert when someone approaches my front porch. It's been up for two years and have not had any issues.
    I see that there is a way to adjust the sensitivity on these sensors, but how do you do it??? The manual provides no instructions whatsoever.
    Minh T on Mar 19, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: There are pins inside the unit that you connect to activate pet1 or pet2 sensitivity.
    I cannot get this device to connect. Does anyone have any more detailed instructions on how to setup?
    Robert A on Apr 29, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Just paired this unit yesterday. Had some difficulty getting my Smartthings Hub to recognize it. Finally separated the Hub and unit by about 1 meter and it paired. Keep pushing the program button after about 5 to 10 seconds. The unit sends an identification signal only for a short time. Good Luck
    I tried to pair this with a Wink 2 Hub. It seems to connect, but comes up as a 'generic sensor', and seems to be an entry-type sensor instead of motion detector. The only choices via wink are 'window', 'door', 'cabinet', and 'patio door'. I also bought an entry sensor, so will try to connect that one to see what happens. Any hints appreciated?
    Anthony T on Jun 26, 2017

    Thank you
    I have this set up under one of my eaves on the front porch. It's in a covered corner and maybe 10 feet off the ground, it's pointed right at my front door. 8/10, it will not detect motion, even if I'm jumping up and down. It seems to detect motion best when I'm on end of the porch furthest away from it. Anything closer than 6 feet it doesn't seem to detect. Does anyone have any ideas? Is it a sensitivity issue? Is it too cold outside? It's about 50 degrees F right now so it's not freezing.

    Motion portion doesn’t work?
    A shopper on Jun 27, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Motion detection is the main purpose of this device. So if the motion detection does not register after pairing with the hub, then the device might be faulty.
    what's the polling rate on the motion sensor? I have a GE portable motion sensor that triggers (motion active), and doesn't poll again for 4 minutes (motion stopped) (not configurable through winK), and that is near useless for automation.
    A shopper on Jun 19, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure of the EXACT polling rate but I know it's not 4 minutes between polling. If I walk past the sensor I can see the LED 'light up'. If I walk out of it's field of vision and then walk back into it, the LED lights up again. So it's not an issue.
    Why are all the pictures upside down?
    A shopper on Apr 9, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: They were taken in China.
    What is the battery life of this unit? In addition to motion and temperature, does this unit share the battery state with the controller?
    George W on Dec 19, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: I can see battery capacity being reported. I haven't had this unit for long, so it's hard to tell how long battery will last. So far, I've had it for about two months, and battery reports as 100% (in my experience, these devices report battery status in "chunks" -- I expect it to suddenly drop from 100% to 80% or so, eventually). Note that temperature reporting is so so -- The unit appears to "sleep" to conserve battery and only wakes up once every X minutes to update the temperature measurements (but don't worry, motion detection is always instant).
    I used to use this with Wink hub, but now have SmartThings. How do I reset the unit and to pair with SmartThings? Thanks.
    keith k on Aug 13, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Keith -
    You weren't using a SmartThings hub before so I don't believe you need to do a "reset" or an "exclude" since your SmartThings hub has never seen it.

    No promises, but this is what I would do:

    1 Take the sensor out of it's holder and take it close (3 feet or so) to your SmartThings hub.
    2. Open the back cover of the the sensor and find the "program" button.
    3. Start your SmartThings app on your phone/iPad/etc. and go to the screen where you can add a device, but don't click on add a device yet.
    4. Press and hold the "program" button from step 2 for 1 second then release. The LED on the sensor should start blinking. This means it's in pairing mode.
    5. Now click on the "Add a device" or "+" button on your SmartThings app.

    If the LED on the sensor goes solid that means it paired and your SmartThings app should be showing the device.
    If it doesn't, try a couple variations on holding/releasing the program button. Some people have had to hold it for a second, release it, then hold for another second and release.

    How do you change the temperature from C to F?
    Jason G on Dec 23, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The MonoPrice 15271 Z-Wave Plus PIR Motion/Temp sensor reports changes of +-2 degrees C, by default. This can be changed to Fahrenheit by sending a Z-Wave Command_Class_Configuration command. It's documented on pages 5-6 of the included manual. In my case the Samsung SmartThings hub set it automatically when the sensor was added to my environment.
    Does this sensor provide continuous motion detection or (to conserve on battery power) does it have a delay after a motion detection event is registered before it will register motion detection again?
    A shopper on Nov 14, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It doesn't register continuously but it does activate immediately when it senses motion (on state). The unit will then look for motion again 60 seconds later. If there is still motion it will stay in the "on state" and will then check again in 60 seconds. If there is no motion during this check then it sends the "off state". It then waits until is sees motion and then starts the process over.
    Has anyone successfully paired this unit with a Vera-lite controller? Any issues? I saw one review that said it took their network down but I am wondering if others have had success?
    A shopper on Apr 8, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I use thse with both the newest Vera Plus and several Vera 3s. I am running UI7 on all. I don't have a Vera-lite but assume if you are running UI7, it would work as it does with my systems.
    What is the motion detection delay on this device? i.e. what is the elapsed time between when you move in front of the sensor and when it reports the event over z-wave?
    New User U on Mar 17, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The ones I got were pretty good. I didn't time it but I would say within a second or two at the most. I read before that others experience a lot longer delay.
    Does it work with Indigo HA Software?
    michael m on Mar 8, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Neither of the devices I received pair with my zwave controllers.
    Is this compatible with Amazon Echo?
    Chris B on Dec 19, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, thank you for your question. This sensor is not directly compatible with Amazon Echo devices and will need a Z-wave controller/hub as a middle device to which the Echo can connect to and access information from the sensor.
    will these work with Amazon Alexa?
    Robert B on Jan 8, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: it is just a sensor providing information about motion and temperature. I have not used it yet.
    It has to be integrated with a home automation system with zwave and the system should be able to connect to Alexa.
    Are the pics posted here, are upside down? I thought the light will be on the top...
    Govinda Raja N on Apr 10, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Looking into the photos, a couple of them are upside down. The light will be on the top of the unit when installed.

    Good value motion sensor for SmartThings
    As others reported, I had some difficulty with the initial pairing because the pairing instructions said to press the button once to put into pairing mode for 10 seconds and repeat until pairing occurred. Instead had to press pairing button on back 10x to get sensor to pair with hub.

    Once paired the motion and temperature sensors worked well. There are adjustments for sensitivity settings, but they are currently not available in the SmartThings app.

    PROS: + Z-wave plus
    + integrated temperature monitor
    + Mounting bracket works in corners and on flat surfaces

    CONS: - Has jumper posts for different sensitivities to avoid activation by pets, but does not include necessary jumper or description of jumper settings. After pairing, sensitivity settings were not present in SmartThings app and therefore could not be adjusted programmatically.
    - Pairing description was confusing because did not pair when pairing button pressed 1x. Had to press 10x in quick succession before device paired with SmartThings v2 hub.
    - Manual describes updating firmware, but does not include instruction on how to make the update occur with SmartThings or other Z-wave hub. This may be a Z-Wave Plus feature that is still in the works for SmartThings.

    Motion sensor works as expected, but temperature does not
    The motion sensor works as expected. The sensitivity setting is enough to avoid triggering on our large cat. The temperature sensor, however, is a different story: It appears this device "sleeps" to conserve battery (good) but in going so, it responds with the last known temperature. The end result is that if you graph your temperature from this sensor, your graph will show with huge steps, and not a smooth line showing temperature changes across time. If you don't care for temperature, it's a good motion sensor. Let's see how long the battery will last.

    Difficult/Impossible To Pair On Homeseer System
    If you're using a HomeSeer system, these are not the PIR devices for you. It was difficult to pair them to my system. And after pairing, I get strange motion events, NO battery information and temperatures that seem to defy logic. I was really hopeful when I saw that this was a Z-Wave Plus, but was completely disappointed with its performance.

    Still Great After 18 Months
    Bought a pair of these to monitor a Florida Condo in October 2015. One inside. One outside under a covered deck. Using with Vera Edge. Furthest one probably 80 feet away. Both still working well as of 4/2017. Were not hard to include (no harder than anything else) in the Vera Edge interface. A little tricky getting the temperature and motion aspects to show up in the right user interface panels but that's Vera, not the product.

    One of my devices -- the inside one oddly -- stopped responding. I took it down, and pressed the include / exclude button for 30 seconds, thinking it might reset. Whatever that did it solved the problem -- device re-included without any further action required on my part. So, try that if you have a non-responding item.

    What can I say: good price, works well. Highly recommended.

    Working fine with SmartThings
    Had minor difficulty doing the initial pairing that could have been just user error on my part. I'm using it for the garage to trigger lighting.
    Installation was easy using the screws (or double-stick tape) provided. I may buy a second one for the same area just to improve reaction time as there is no ideal location to cover both bays and the rear/side doors. Still experimenting with it as a general room occupancy detector - the wide 120 degree range should be good for this.
    July 18, 2016
    Sensitivity adjustment?
    Works great with my samsung smartthings hub. Only problem is the device handler does not allow you to set the sensitivity. My guess is that someone on the smartthings community will eventually provide this feature.

    Works great with Vera Plus after configuration change
    This motion/temp sensor paired pretty easy with Vera Plus. But the temperature reporting was strange. Only reported the temperature after a 3.6 degree Fahrenheit change. At first I thought this was just a method to save on batteries. But after trying various configuration changes, found out the reason for this behavior. The default unit was configured for Celsius and to report on +/- 2 degree changes. Vera Plus knew it was configured for Celsius and converted it to Fahrenheit. So, a plus 2 degree change in C is equal to a 3.6 degree change in F.

    Here are the default configuration parameters:

    Parameter 1 3 motion reset time (minutes)
    Parameter 2 0 0 = celsius 1 = fahrenheit
    Parameter 3 4 motion sensitivity
    Parameter 4 0 Temperature offset
    Parameter 5 2 Temperature report +/- change

    First I changed Parameter 5 to 1 and sure enough, the device started reporting after 1.8 degree of change. Next I changed Parameter 2 to 1. Now it reports after 1 degree of change. Vera Plus is smart enough to know the device is now reporting in Fahrenheit so no conversion is needed.

    Great value. I'm planning on getting more of these devices.

    Yes, it does work with WINK and WINK 2
    I've purchased 2 of these about 1yr ago and they do pair up somewhat easy.

    With WINK - ONLY The motion sensor will show, temperature will not. Multi Channel isn't support by wink. The Motion works pretty well, almost picks it up instantly.

    With Smartthings - The Motion and Temperature works, however the motions is A LOT slower than the wink. The temperature (without adjustments) is 2 degrees different than my Sensi Themostat. I did not use a custom handler, I used the default Aeon.

    Both report battery levels

    Side Notes:

    Pair Tips: With mostly all Z Wave, it best to 'Exclude' the device first, new or not....Esp these.
    Put the hub in exclusion mode, then with the sensor opened up, hold the micro switch down for 1 sec twice.
    If your sensor led is flashing, then it was successful, it's ready to pair.
    Pairing with WINK or Smartthings is down VERY easily thru the hub's inclusion mode. WINK picks it up in secs, while ST picks it up in about 5-10secs and takes about 5min for any readings to show.

    When I purchased these, I thought they were Motion, Temperature and Humidity. I haven't seen humidity reported yet on either hub.

    I haven't found a inexpensive temperature sensor for the wink, thats the reason why I bought the ST to augment my WINK.

    My opinion and 2 cents:
    If you have wink, they work GREAT as motion sensor and rarely loss connection.
    If you have Smartthings, Get the Smartthings multi sensor, it's about the same price and better. The motion sensor part with ST sux. I'll try it with the custom handler and see if that works better.

    Good sensor, not wink compatible unlike older model.
    Not the products fault but around the web there are reviews and pages making reference to the Monoprice Door/Window sensors and that they're compatible with Wink. Well I didn't realize that these were all for a now discontinued version of the sensors that these have replaced. Turns out this new zwave plus model is NOT compatible with Wink so now I have 10 of these and am waiting, as a return would have lost me too much money, in the hopes they will be supported.

    Didn't work with Wink
    Unknown reason, but device did not register correctly with Wink services. Generically registered as a door switch, not motion sensor at all. I don't know if the device is defective or not.
