Recessed Door Sensor.

Invisible home automation
is perfect home automation.

The Z-Wave door sensor is finally invisible.

At less than 0.4” in width some might call it small and compact. We prefer to call it invisible. It’s the Z-Wave door sensor that’s been designed as the door sensor should have always been. Powerful but invisible. Recessed Door Sensor is a clever piece of technology that installs simply within your door’s frame. It’s as beautiful as the rest of your home. You never see it; you just feel its benefits.

Invisible intelligence.

The beauty of an invisible installation is complemented by the beauty of a simple installation.

Installing Recessed Door Sensor is easy. Adding it to your home’s network takes no more than activating its battery and syncing it with your Z-Wave network. Making the whole thing invisible means little more than a drill hole hidden away on the top of your door. It’s the sort of installation that takes no more than 10 minutes but provides years’ worth of benefits.

Perfect wireless.
Security sensors have to be dependable. Recessed Door Sensor is. It’s wireless communication range reaches Z-Wave’s maximum: up to 150 metres / 492 feet when unobstructed.


A security sensor has to be secure. Recessed Door Sensor couples Z-Wave Plus with Aeotec’s Gen5. That enables the sensor to utilise AES 128-bit communication encryption in order to secure your home.
