    Missing Features Review by Charles

    The jumper is no longer part of this unit and the manuals are completely irrelevant. This item can no longer operate two separate functions and will ONLY turn on a scene when the door is opened and off when it closes. If you want it to activate a scene when you open the door and not immediately turn off when the door closes, you are out of luck. Bad update and incorrect unstructions, not sure what they're thinking...

    Smarthome response: We're sorry that the latest version no longer supports two separate functions via the jumper. The Insteon engineers did indicate that the functionality is still there but software selectable only. The latest manual will get posted shortly. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Instructions are completely wrong. Everything from pairing to default behavior. No jumper included. Called Tech Support...closed today. Finally got it paired, but don't like the way it's working; I need the jumper.

    Great Door sensor, but try the hidden door sensor first. No low battery for this unit.

    Easily installed, just think through the location beforehand. Orientation of the magnet isn't as critical as might be expected: I have two where the window/door type dictated rotating the magnet by 90 degrees on the long axis to make installation possible. Just test fit until you're sure the mounting positions will function reliably before attaching permanently. Functions properly and is supported via UDI's ISY series controllers. I gave four stars only because I don't know battery life, yet.

    generally working fine, but I cannot get one of them to stop sending alerts. I cleared out the phone number but I still get a text alert. Also the range seems to be an issue and I have a hub and extender.

    Easy to mount and easy to program, but you do need an "access point". Fortunately I already have a number of them in my system

    Turns on my shed lights automatically when I open my door. and acts like a alarm and notifies me of entry. Great when I'm away.

    great product. Works well. Could be smaller. Installation is very easy using included double sided tape. If you need to catch exact closed position you might want to put magnet a bit apart from the sensor. Just find a point of triggering by moving magnet closer and away from the sensor.
