Z-Wave Garage Door Sensor, NO LOGO
Monitor the status of your garage door using this Z-Wave® Garage Door Sensor from Monoprice!
Z-Wave is an interoperable, two-way RF mesh networking technology used for home automation and security. Battery-powered Z-Wave devices, such as this sensor, "wake up" when triggered and broadcast a Z-Wave alarm signal, which can in turn be used to activate other devices or perform preprogrammed tasks. Any Z-Wave enabled device displaying the Z-Wave logo can be used with Z-Wave devices from other manufacturers.
This sensor is designed to detect angular changes, such as would occur when a garage door is opened. When triggered, the sensor sends a wireless Z-Wave alarm signal, which can be used as a simple alarm or as a trigger to activate or perform other functions, such as turning on a light. It also has a tamperproof switch, which causes a different alarm signal to be sent when triggered.

PROS: Immediately detected with smartthings
CONS: Doesn't detect motion, just open/closed.
For anyone looking at purchasing these z-wave devices for the Wink, be advised that the motion sensor works, but not temperatures. The garage door and the smoke alarm both don't work at all with the Wink hub.
Having said that, the sensor linked to the Wink Hub easily. and tilting it makes the Wink hub flash so I know that the sensor work as advertised. Note, there are a good range of mounting options for this device. I am impressed about that.
This is Tiffany from Wink support, thanks for reaching out!
Unfortunately, since that device you have is sort of like a 2-in-1, there is no option within the Wink app to have that sort of specification. The thermometer within the motion sensor is something we are not compatible with, therefore, we cannot guarantee full functionality.
The only smoke alarms that are able to connect to the Wink hub itself are the Kidde smoke alarms and the Nest Protect smoke alarm. There is no other way to add generic z-wave smoke alarms to the Wink hub, unfortunately.
When I asked about the garage door sensor:
Ah yes, it's not compatible, unfortunately. We are always working on new integrations, definitely keep your eyes peeled for future updates.
Lots of mounting options
Seems to send a signal
CONS: Doesn't work with Wink Hub, NOT MONOPRICE's FAULT
I'm using it in Canada, and although I was expecting that I might have some issues in the dead of winter, it's been acting up even when it isn't that cold.
Typically a quick tap on the unit will reset it to the correct status.
PROS: Works with Smartthings.
Has several mounting options.
Fast response time.
CONS: False (Open) signals
Does not work with WINK
PROS: Purchased three of the tilt sensors for my garage. I use a Vera lite zwave system and I configured it under other zwave devices since vera doesn't have a tilt sensor included. This was recognized as a vision product after inclusion. Works great however on letting me know when the garage is activated but you cantbtell if its up or down. Trying to figure out how to make the device reset after it is triggered so I can tell if the door is open or closed. Other than that it was a good buy at the onsale price with coupon.
Now it works great and I add a rules to trigger lights etc when the door open or closes.
PROS: Works as advertised
CONS: Little tricky to get correct status
PROS: Fairly priced
CONS: Instruction manual could be better
We have a Nexia (formerly Schlage) based system and the sensor paired without a problem. It is a simple angle sensor that detects whether the sensor is vertical (closed) or horizontal (open). There is a slight glitch in the Nexia interface, but it has nothing to do with the sensor itself.
My only minor complaint is that it has an 'intrusion detection' signal that gets sent whenever the door opens or closes. I'm assuming this occurs when the sensor gets shaken, but our garage door is actually quite gentle as it closes and hardly shakes at all, so the 'intrusion alert' seems to be way too sensitive.
Other than that, the sensor works well and I'm happy with it.
PROS: Works as advertised
CONS: Constant Intrusion alerts
I would return it, but I am just outside the refund window. Oh well, monoprice gear has been great otherwise
PROS: Good price. Comes with battery
CONS: Does not work with Wink
Truly sorry to hear PID 11987 did not work out for your needs. If you no longer have a need for the item, I can assist you in setting up an RMA for a return for store credit. Please let me know how you would like to proceed. Thank you!
PROS: Works well with Samung Smartthings
Easy to install
