This sensor detects any vibration or shock of the device it is mounted to. It can therefore be used to protect any valuable goods, windows, doors or any other kind of gear that is not supposed to move or vibrate. The sensor has a manual calibration and adjustment element to adapt the sensitivity to the different applications. The installation can be done with screws or double-sided tape. The device is battery-operated and therefore in sleeping mode unless an action is detected. After a programmable sleeping time the device wakes up and sends a status information. After this the unit goes back to sleeping modus. Batteries can be changed without unscrewing the device from the door or frame. When batteries need to be replaced the unit will give a visual warning on the device and send a warning to the Z-Wave controller. The unit sends information to a controller or any other associated Z-Wave device. Up to 5 devices can be controlled from this device. A tamper switch protects the device from removal or manipulation if used in security applications. Two terminals allows to connection of an external dry contact in parallel to the vibration sensor. The powerful CR123 Lithium battery lasts 3-5 years in normal operation conditions. The device supports normal Z-Wave inclusion, auto inclusion and network wide inclusion for convenient handling.
