BeNext Door Sensor

Hi all,

I just received my smartthings hub today and paired a BeNext door sensor to it, ( )
Sadly it only shows up in the app as a (generic?) Zwave sensor… The reason I bought it was so I could trigger my light in the closet under the stairs upon opening the door but because it’s not recognized as a door sensor the app won’t let me automate this…

Any Ideas what i can do, or is this sensor just incompatible.

Thanks in advance for your help!!
(and my apologies if this is the wrong part of the forum to ask this.)



log into the ide at
goto my devices
find that device
edit it
change the device type to zwave door window sensor.

Thanks!! I’ll try that
