    Anyone have the protocol documentation? What will it report and how often as well as intervals?
    A shopper on Dec 21, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, at the moment we do not have the manual available on our website. Feel free to email our technical support team at tech@monoprice.com for further assistance in regards to obtaining the documentation, thank you!
    Can this be used on sliding glass patio doors?
    A shopper on Apr 20, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: This would not be appropriate, as recommended calls for drilling into the door as well as frame. You'd be better off using one of the other contact sensors. Like this:

    BEST ANSWER: Anything electric an be modified, of course, but it does not come with any provision for doing so.
    How long is the battery life?
    A shopper on Dec 7, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I've used the original version of this sensor made for Digital Security Systems (DSC) of Canada professional security systems. Because it uses a Lithium battery, I've had these used in wireless security systems on the main entry door of residences and businesses which opened and closed several times a day and gotten 3 to 5 years of service life from the battery. Now with the DSC version, it was polled periodically throughout the day for supervision and battery status so that the home or business owner would get an alert at the alarm system keypad of a low battery condition with about a 7 day advance warning before the battery would fail to power the electronics. I don't know if this Z-Wave version performs the same.
    Does it have an LED that will light on each open/close state change? If there is one is it possible to turn it off?
    A shopper on Feb 19, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The LED is behind the plastic cap so in operation, it's not really visible. Maybe in complete darkness you could see it?
    Does anyone know whether the Z-Wave Plus Recessed Door/Window Sensor, NO LOGO can be used outdoors? For example, in a side gate leading to the back yard?
    A shopper on Mar 10, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: I've used the Digital Security Controls (DSC, Canada) version of these in security systems since they were introduced nearly 10 years ago. Because they are mounted in a 3/4" hole in the edge of the door (or in the door frame) the weather eventually does get to them as the weatherstripping of the entry door allows some moisture and humidity to slowly damage the circuit board over a period of years. Now I do live in the New Orleans area and humidity is very high normally so possibly in other areas of the country where the weather is drier, you may never have a problem with copper oxide growing between the leads of the electronic components or destroying the copper circuit boards traces.
    Will this work if installed in a metal clad entry door?
    Chris L on Oct 7, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes I agree with Mark R's answer, placing the transmitting sensor in the door frame allows the radio frequency signal to radiate easier that if it were sandwiched between the metal cladding of the movable door. However, be careful when drilling into a door frame as electricians often run the 120VAC ROMEX cables on the studs of the door frame. The hole to be drilled for the transmitter is deeper therefore you may run the risk of hitting a live 120VAC electrical line with your drill bit and also requiring an electrician to replace the ROMEX and subsequent repair to your sheetrock wall.
    Does anyone know if, and how long of a delay there is when using this with a smartthings hub? I want to use this to turn on lights when a door opens. Was curious to know how much of a delay there is between setting off the sensor and getting a desired action.
    Punit M on Jun 12, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I feel that the delay is fairly short. I have these door sensors and others around the house, one is outside on my shed some 70 feet away or so. When I open the shed door the readout on my phone is not perfectly instant but fairly instant. I might guess combined with turning on a light in response to this might take 250ms to 500ms. Maybe up to a second in extraneous conditions. There are so many variables though so it's hard to tell. Just my guess.
    Can the sensor be mounted both vertically and horizontally? I want to put it horizontally on the side of my door rather than vertically on the top of my door.
    Tyler G on Mar 19, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, It can be mounted horizontally as long you are able to mount both the sensor and the opposing magnet in the door and door frame. I have a hinged patio door that has a metal locking mechanism thus did not allow me to countersink the magnet so instead I used a thin, very strong rare earth magnet and super glued it to the metal locking mechanism in the door and aligned to the sensor in the door frame. Works perfectly!
    Anyone else have issues with installing with a SmartThings Hub? The Z-Wave sensor connect with a SmarThings Hub properly but shows it continually 'Open' . It found the device, shows 100% battery but will not change or update between 'open' and 'closed'. Steps taken: Paired device through SmartThings, device found, assembled device, and device light flashes when the magnet is placed properly and when removed. Either way, the status within the SmartThings hub shows 'open'. I have one device installed in a door. The second device is about a foot from the hub (fully assembled, with cap, battery and magnet as if 'closed) and neither will update within the hub. Besides pairing the hub, is there a step I need to add, change or delete that will allow the sensor to update when the magnet is in the 'open' or 'closed position?
    Scott B on Feb 25, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I would suggest attempting to remove the device, then adding it back to the network. Oftentimes with many Z-Wave devices that'll fix all the problems for me. I have several of these in my house and they've all been working great with my SmartThings hub.

    You might also want to try to repair your Z-Wave network after they've been paired and installed. Pairing is always easiest right next to the hub, but repairing the network helps them communicate once they're installed.
    Does it work without the royboy device handlers?
    New User U on Nov 21, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I have this working just fine without any additional handlers. Actually re-paired it last night to a new ST hub with no issues.

    BTW, the ZOOZ ZSE40 4-in-1 Sensor Device Handler will work for Monoprice's motion sensors without needing to use royboy.
    Is there an adjustable setting that allows you to switch between Normally closed and Normally open operating states?
    Mike B on Sep 10, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Nope.
    Does Z-Wave Plus® Recessed Door/Window Sensor this work with Alexa ?
    A shopper on Feb 19, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: This does not directly work with Alexa. You need a z-wave bridge like home assistant or homeseer for it to work with Alexa.
    Does this work with Abode Security?
    Michael L on Mar 14, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: My Vera thinks this is a Vision ZD2105-5. IF you Google that, thesmartesthouse has a link to "contact us" if your device isn't listed as compatible with this item, perhaps they'd know. I've had great luck with ZWave standard devices, but I'm using the Vera product which seems more universally friendly.
    This is confusing. Does the recessed sensor work directly with SmartThings ADT Home Security hub? Is the ADT Home security Hub even required or just a regular hub without a screen (in which case, the app may reside on the cell phone or computer). I wasn't certain why the RobRoy app was mentioned. Is the app required for the recessed sensor to work.
    New User U on Oct 28, 2018
    Does the recessed window/door sensor work with the Abode home security system?
    A shopper on Oct 21, 2018
    Anyone knows how to reset this sensor? I need to include it to a new hub but cant. The manual's instructions to reset is so unintuitive.

    Instructions are wrong
    Paired with my Vera Plus like a champ. The instructions state to 'drill a 11/16" hole'. This is NOT correct - it requires a 3/4" hole. Only found out after I special ordered the 11/16 bit...

    PROS: Pairs perfect with Vera Plus
    Includes battery

    CONS: Poor instructions

    Not Reliable at All
    Bought three of these, one for each of my external doors. After a couple month use I have found they are not very reliable. 1 out of every 20 or so open/closes of a door leave the sensor stuck at "Open". Opening and closing the door a second time fixes the issues but I have alarms setup so that if a door is left open for more then 15 minutes alert me and I get the alert at least once a week on my garage entry door. Last time they were on sale I picked up one more thinking maybe that door sensor is just bad. It helped but then I got the alert on another door that was closed. Same thing, opened and closed it a second time and it then showed closed.

    Would definitely avoid if you want reliability. Before I put these on I was using a SmartThings multi-sensor and those were rock solid.

    When it works it's great
    I installed this per instructions in a steel covered door and found that it wouldn't connect to my SmartThings hub. After reading online for a while and talking to a co-worker, I found that I had to put the sensor part in the door jam and the magnet in the door (basically install it upside down). So far it's been working well this way. The drill bit size is 3/4", not what they tell you in the instructions.

    Works great with SmartThings Hub
    Works great with my Samsung SmartThings version 2. I bought two, one for my front and one for my back door. My front door has a Kwikset SmartCode SmartKey door lock that I use with this sensor to autolock my door after a few minutes if the door is closed. My back door doesn't have a smart lock but it give me the peace of mind that I know when the door has been opened and closed. I plan to add a speaker to my SmartThings Hub to get audible alerts or an alarm at night if either door opens.

    As for installation it is pretty straight-forward. A 3/4" hole is needed for the magnet and the sensor itself. For my front metal door I drilled a 3/4" hole in the top of the door and then placed the magnet alone in the door. I then placed the sensor in the door frame above the magnet when the door is closed. The back door I placed the magnet in the frame and the sensor in the door.

    PROS: -Easy Install
    -Good Quality
    -Good Sized Powerful Magnet

    CONS: -None

    Works good
    I installed 4 of these, and they all worked as expected with my SmartThings V2 hub. I'll be ordering some more to do my home's windows, now that I'm happy with the tests.

    When installing the module body, I used the optional cap that has the screw tabs. I needed to countersink the body so that the cap didn't stick out, since that caused the door to bind on the cap. To do that, I drilled my 3/4" hole for the body to slip into, then used a 5/8" forester bit to bite two circles about 1/8" deep for the screw tabs. Once I did that, the whole mechanism laid flush with the door frame, and the binding issue was solved.

    Works with SmartThings
    Installation was quick and easy, paired with SmartThings with no issues at all. I spent no more than 10 minutes installing this sensor. If you have a 11/16" bit, use it, otherwise use a 3/4" bit. The resulting hole from the 3/4" bit may be a little large. I had to glue the magnet into the door frame.

    PROS: Works with SmartThings, OK fit with 3/4" bit.

    CONS: None
    October 13, 2016
    All 5 work great
    I bought one for each door of my home. They all paired with my Samsung Smartthings without any problems. I read the other reviews and bought a 3/4" drill bit. Installation for each door only took about 15 minutes. Opening and closing of my doors is detected instantly on my network. Will have to see how long the batteries last.

    Fast paring and installation- Housing somewhat cheap
    Install took about 20 min. 11/16 hole was too small for the sensor housing to fit so I used a 3/4" bit.

    I actually installed it backwards (sensor in wall, magnet in door) after reading some of the reviews and I think its a better solution to the plastic housing having the tendency to stick inside the opening.

    Pairing with SmartThings V1 was fast and easy.

    If you own a metal casing door, I'd suggest you use a step drill bit to alleviate any sharp edges.

    Great value Z-wave door sensor
    The Monoprice recessed door sensor doesn't stand out relative to others based on features since they are all practically identical. What sets the Monoprice model apart is the unit price, and that each unit includes both white and brown enclosures to better match the color of your door and frame.
