I’ve done a lot of digging around and it seems like there isn’t any device around like this yet. I understand it may be an issue with real-estate in a single-gang box as well. With Z-Wave+ does anybody know of plans for any company to release such a device? Even a two-gang device with capabilities to control 2 loads would be very useful in bathroom applications where many times there is a fan and light switch; add a humidity sensor and you are golden.
I think something like this would be ideal for many situations. I always like having the option of a backup incase of network problems, or motion sensing issues, and while separate devices can work like this, I like the idea of reducing device clutter and minimizing points of failure. I hope somebody has some insight into this!
GE has announced one, but it’s not out yet. There aren’t any others on the market yet.
That said, most people don’t need them because with SmartThings you can take a sensor and place it anywhere and have it trigger any of your controlled light switches. This actually gives you a lot more choice in placement than one that is built into the light switch. You can also take multiple sensors and create a zone so that motion on any of the sensors controls the same light. This is particularly helpful for large rooms or L shaped rooms.
If you really want to have a switch with the sensor built into it, you’ll have to wait for the GE one to come to market, which will probably be a few months.
If you’re willing to use a separate sensor and a switch, you have a lot of choices right now.
Like @BJones, I want this type of sensor. I would like to use them as smart occupancy sensors, of course, but in combination with other sensors in the zone. I would also like to use them as zone threshold sensors. Since most of my small room applications usually have an open (contact non-friendly) entryway with immediately accessible light switches, a combo switch+motion would be the optimal solution.
Throw in temp reporting and “Boom!”, I’m set with a single device installation and no batteries to worry about!
Jasco is releasing one soon under the GE brand. It has a model number, 26931, and has been Z wave certified, but hasn’t yet been released to the market. At CES 2017 in January, Jasco said it should be out in the first half of this year.
