i’m on a mission to find reliable door and window sensors. i purchased a number of monoprice sensors, and RBoy DHs, and decided to try a few and determine if they are appropriate.
the 15270 surface mounted sensors appear to be pretty solid. they react quickly, seem reliable, and added to my 80+ device network without issue.
the 15268 recessed sensors are a disaster, and i plan on returning the three i purchased. out of the box, one was defective, another won’t pair at all, and the third works, but is so incredibly slow to respond (15+ seconds, if at all) that i don’t trust it to trigger rules showing entry to my house. they are going back.
the 11987 garage door tip sensors are great - they seem to work reliably and immediately. i used industrial velcro to stick them to my three garage doors, and so far they are operating flawlessly.
i’ll report back as i see how the batteries hold up, and if there are any other issues. do others have feedback on these or other sensors?
