Best Options for Door/Window Sensors?

Hey everybody, Iam fairly new and have not-really done anything with my unit since receiving it which was right before Iris was shutdown. I had all my windows and doors with sensors unfortunately the first gen. Iam looking to replace them all. Just wondering what success everyone has had?

Dont necessarily need the ones for ADT. I have four doors, 16 windows. Thanks in advanced.

There’s no one “best“ as there are quite a few different feature options and different ones will work for different households. There are also of course budget concerns that might affect your choice.

You can read more about what the different features are and why some people might prefer one over another by reading the device class features FAQ. (The topic title is a clickable link)

If you don’t get enough information from the FAQ, give us a few more details on what specifically you’re looking for and what your budget is and people may be able to give suggestions.

Also, if you have more questions, we will also need to know the exact model number of your hub and which smartthings mobile app you are using. :sunglasses:

FAQ: how to tell which version of the SmartThings mobile app that you have

I hope https://centralite.com/ finds a retailer to market their hardware. The version 2 contacts work really well, and are zigbee to boot.

Regarding centralite, see the following thread:
