They are the EXACT same size, shape, etc. As the GE switches. The plastic and toggle feels the EXACT same. If they didn’t have DragonTech printed on them I would swear they were GE. Well, except the lack of air gap.
They came package in a sturdy little box. Nothing as elaborate as the GE switches with the extra cover and neutral wire. Nothing bad; just … Different.
I hooked up two of them. Again; exactly like the GE switches.
Ok, now a difference; the LED is white.
Pairing; no issues.
Pulled out my thermal camera. Looked at a on/off temperatures and reported below how many degrees above ambient they were:
a. GE switch - 1 deg hot
b. GE dimmer - 2 deg hot
c. Leviton switch - 4 deg hot
d. Leviton dimmer - 10 deg hot
e. Dragon Tech - 2 deg hot
f. Regular switch - 0 degree different
Did you buy those other PEQ sensors recently? Were they or are they on sale somewhere? I have some PEQ water sensors and really like them. Would love to pick up a few more and some motion sensors as well.
The $20 PEQ sensor are tempting but i’m also on the fence for the Iris Centralite ones so I’m a little conflicted about which one to get (eventho I know the Iris ones are $5 more).
Does anybody know which one is better, looks, function, and reliability wise?
Would the PEQ sensor work on Garage doors? They are steel doors, so wasn’t sure if any of these sensors work on steel doors due to the magnetic nature. These would be cheaper than the accelerometer based sensors.
Im confused on the significance of “open” vs “opening”, meaning why care about “opening” as a state? The doors take about 10 seconds total to transition, and why would I care for other than “open” and “closed”? If the door was closing and the eye sensor trips (ball rolls in way, person, etc) the end state will stay open if I attempt and fail to close the door.
What am I missing here? $40 for two of these vs $70 for two tilts…
