What is an Aeotec Recessed Door Sensor?

Aeotec is a renounced smart home manufacturer established in smart switches, smart hubs, locks, and various other systems. All these systems work on Z-wave technology, and the Aeotec Recessed Door sensor is a device from the same criteria.

This sensor allows a user to control the door lock with comfort. You need to press a single button to turn on and off the lock on the door. The smart functionality also enhances the automation as it allows you to do various things, like setting up a time for the automatic lock.

The range of this sensor is 130 feet from any smart outlet, which allow you to control the functionality. However, many people have this question that is it safe to use? Well, Aeotec offers an S2 encryption system which makes this lock unhackable so that you can sleep comfortably.

How does an Aeotec Recessed Door Sensor work?

Aeotec is a company that focuses on making software or programs to connect with regular devices through your Smartphone. Various technologies connect smart hub devices, and Aeotec devices work on Z wave technology. When you install the Aeotec recessed door sensor and turn it on by putting a CR123A battery, you can connect it with the smart hub. The work is simple, and you can understand by following points.

  • After connecting the smart door sensor, you need to download the app from App Store or Google Play.
  • Once the app is downloaded, sign in and tap on an add device button. Next, you scan the code, and the work is complete.
  • Now, when you open the app and shut the door closed from the app, it sends a z-wave signal.
  • Z-wave signals or bandwidth require less power, and your smart door sensor can work perfectly for years on a single battery.
  • Then the smart sensor gets a signal and engages the lock. Once this lock is turned on from the app, you need to deactivate the lock to open the door.

A smart processor is built into the device that processes the signal and opens or locates the door. If anyone else tries to do the same from any other device that uses Z wave, it won’t be possible due to encryption.
