Essential Info

The Smartenit Wireless Sensor Receiver (EZSnsRF) brings true wireless RF (radio frequency) products into the INSTEON world with compatibility with all Dakota Alert Series 3000 transmitters. The device takes RF signals transmitted from any Dakota Alert device-- from driveway alerts to proximity sensors to liquid sensors -- to trigger events in your INSTEON network. Set up a driveway alarm that turns on the house lights upon detection of a vehicle or have an alarm activate whenever an intruder trips the motion sensor in the backyard. With support for over 4,000 different wireless devices, you have the flexibility to set up a multitude of sensors in and around your house to keep your home safe.

While basic functions can be programmed manually, advanced functionality can be programmed with the EZSrve, central automation controller. If you already have a central automation controller or a software package for your INSTEON network that doesn't have the correct parameters to program the advanced functionality of this device, you can download the free Smartenit Utility Suite which works in conjunction with an INSTEON Powerlinc Modem (2412U, 2413U or 2413S). If you need PC-free operation for simple timers, the Smartenit Utility Suite also interfaces with the INSTEON Powerlinc Controller.


What's Included

  • Smartenit Wireless Sensor Receiver for Dakota
  • Quick Setup Guide
  • More Info

    The high sensitivity receiver boasts outstanding range, up to a maximum of 600 feet (line of sight) to cover any sized house. Moreover, the device can learn the codes of up to 20 distinct wireless devices, allowing you to send INSTEON group commands to a host of lights and appliances in your home. For time delayed events, you can set up timers from 0.5 to 15.5 minutes so you can set the front walkway motion sensor to turn on the porch lights to welcome you home and then turn off after a few minutes.
    The EZSnsRF also acts as a repeater of powerline INSTEON signals, and conveniently contains a pass-through outlet on its face for other AC devices, so you won't lose an outlet when you plug this device in.

    Easy to Install
    EZSnsRF is easy to install and operate and works seamlessly with any Dakota Alert Series 3000 device (transmitters) right out-of-the-box! Simply plug in the unit and with just a few button presses on the device, you be up and going in no time.

    Val -- seattle, WA   5/7/2014
    This product is highly unreliable. The customer support at Smartenit is lacking good attitude and behaves like they are doing you a huge favor by fixing problems in their own equipment. It is a small company of 10 people who don't stand behind their products and words. Terribly disappointing experience with Smartenit. I wish I never had bought their devices.
    PAUL -- amherst, NH   2/26/2013
    Had some initial issues/problems. Smarthome was helpful and replaced the first unit. Once the ISY software was updated, the problems were resolved. Our 400' driveway is now alarmed and Lamposts are automated with Insteon.
    Jeremy -- wetumpka, AL   11/4/2011
    A little tricky to setup since it's a bit different than other Insteon devices but it works great.
    Kevin -- East Coast   12/4/2010
    Difficult to use, particularly with the ISY-99. Was able to link one transmitter successfully; linking subsequent transmitters to the EZsnsRF is difficult, and even after they do show up on the ISY-99, they never actually trigger.
    BRUCE -- beavercreek, OR   2/26/2010
    I am using the EZSnsRF with the Dakota alert wireless motion sensor and the isy-99 without issues. I am using firmware version 2.7.7. on the isy-99. The manual could be improved to make it easier to understand the linking process and how the Insteon addressing works multiple sensors on the same EZSnsRF.
    Bruce -- beavercreek, OR   2/25/2010
    I am using the EZSNSRF with the WMT-3000 Dakota Alert wireless motion sensor and the isy99. I have not encountered any issues with the inital linking or the operation of the motion sensor. My isy99 has firmware version 2.7.7
    RICHARD -- weston, MA   1/2/2010
    Did not work.
    DAVID -- ketchikan, AK   10/22/2009
    Does not work with ISY-99!
    DWIGHT -- murfreesboro, TN   11/11/2008
    I have tried this piece multiple times with poor success...unreliable!
    Steve Prior -- danbury, CT   10/5/2008
    The configuration utility that is available from SimpleHomeNet only supports the PLC or the EZSrve/EZBridge. This wasn't at all clear until I actually installed the software. Since I only have a PLM plan to write my own software this was a surprise and since I've already bought and installed the sensor and receiver this means an xtra shipping charge and delay in addition to the cost of the PLC.
    SHANE -- saginaw, MI   7/4/2008
    Great little product. I can't wait to add more sensors.
