The VISION Z-Wave Garage Door Tilt Sensor is a battery-powered device capable of detecting the horizontal or vertical position of your garage door allowing you to monitor its state from anywhere using your Z-Wave gateway.
Tilt sensor function
Supports an external switch/binary sensor
Long battery life with low power status indicator
Integrates with all certified Z-Wave controllers in Australian version (921.42MHz)
The VISION Z-Wave Garage Door Tilt Sensor is designed for use with any object whose operation results in a change of vertical/horizontal orientation. Possible uses include:
Attached to a panel/tilt garage door to detect when it is opened and closed
Attached to a letter box door to send an alert when mail is delivered
Attached to the back of a home theatre chair to dim the lights when reclined
Attached to the boot of a car to trigger an event when it is opened or closed
Attached to a tilt style window frame to trigger an alarm if opened by an intruder
The VISION Z-Wave Garage Door Tilt Sensor is powered by a single lithium CR123A battery which can last 3-5 years under normal conditions. A visual (LED) warning and Z-Wave notification event will be sent to the controller or any associated Z-Wave device when the battery needs to be replaced. Its small size makes it ideal for a wide variety of uses and for maximum integration possibilities.
The device also features two additional terminals allowing you to connect an external dry contact input which operates in parallel to its tilt sensing. You can add an external switch or any binary sensor, such as a door/window sensor.
To install an external sensor/switch, loosen the two screws shown below (1). Next, insert the leads from the external switch through the hole in the side of the enclosure (2). Finally, tighten the two screws (1) to secure the leads.
