Best Dry Contact Open/Close Sensor August of 2023 - No Battery

What are we using for the Best Dry Contact Open/Close Sensor August of 2023 that is hardwired.

We have an install that used to use the FortrezZ MIMOlite with a 24volt external transformer.

We cannot use a battery in this application.

Needs to have Edge Driver.

Needs to be Z-Wave, or have an API that we can query with Cron Job.

What country are you in? The device selection does vary.

In any case, see the community FAQ, there are several devices listed there That should work:

FAQ: List of devices with dry contact input from external sources

Application would be in the USA or Canada. 110-120volt/220-240volt 60hz or DC with transformer is ok.

Appreciate the link. Most of that was highly dated.

I will shift this conversation over to there though and see what modern solutions of 2023 exist with external power (non-battery).

The thread was Started several years ago, but has been updated many times since, as you can tell from the multiple references to edge Drivers.

In any case, if you are in the US, Zooz should have a model that will work for you. Again, see the FAQ. :thinking:

Thank you kind sir! Will look, order them all and do some testing.

You can look into hardwiring any regular z-wave sensor regardless of battery type using battery eliminator
Google it or search on Amazon, and you’ll get something like these
