    Works well for the most part Review by Amelia
    Works well for the most part

    Got these for my doors and windows. The door sensors work well. I have casement windows and the sensors kept falling off.

    Doesn't turn device on or off Review by Bill
    Doesn't turn device on or off

    I have a scene set up to turn on/off garage light when door opens/closes. Sensor and light switch are connected to the hub and set up in a scene. Everything appears to do what it is suppose to, but the lights do not turn on when door opens. On the app the sensor is triggered and the light icon is activated, but alas light does not turn on. Light will turn on just fine through the app when manually selected, just not when the sensor tells it to. Out of ideas........

    Sorry to hear you are experiencing issues. You would want to check to make sure that you created the scene to the correct state for the light. If issues are still persisting beyond that, you would want to contact the support team at 800-762-7845.

    Missing jumper support fail Review by Gregory
    Missing jumper support fail

    Called support about the missing jumper indicated by the instructions. They RMA'd the unit. Very disappointed to learn it isn't supposed to be there and support apparently dosn't know this.

    Easy to install but sure wish an extra magnet was available Review by Stuart
    Easy to install but sure wish an extra magnet was available

    Sensor installed easily. Programming for alert notification was equally as easy. My only wish is that an extra magnet was available for purchase as I use these in sliding window and door applications and with an extra magnet, I could monitor a partially open window or door.

    Does Not Work Properly with ISY Review by Joel
    Does Not Work Properly with ISY

    The device instructions in the box are completely wrong.

    There are some better instructions here on the web. Followed these exactly and the unit links as described for manual linking but no matter what I do it cannot be seen by the ISY.

    Called tech support twice and they really do not have any idea how any of this works with ISY. The first technician was completely clueless but the second call I spoke to someone that basically told me they do not know how or if it works with the ISY.

    I tried the forums and some people responded with ideas but they did not help either.

    Smarthome Insteon products are pretty good but their technical support is terrible so you are basically on your own.

    Worked great for about 2 weeks Review by roriol
    Worked great for about 2 weeks

    I bought two of these. One works fine, the other worked fine for two weeks then died. I tried 3 different batteries, all new, none worked. Can't put in into link mode. It's just dead dead dead.

    Heartbeat Included - Excellent upgrade Review by Patrick
    Heartbeat Included - Excellent upgrade

    I received four of these new units and wanted to share my thoughts about them. I was very fortunate to find these units did not in fact lose the jumper to allow dual mode as mentioned by others.

    This can be explained by the fact these units were older stock units with hardware Rev 1.9, produced on 3514. The ISY indicates the firmware which includes the heartbeat function as v.40

    This new addition of the heartbeat node is most welcomed and excellent to see. Having the heartbeat node allows the person to know if the placement of the unit is within RF range and if the battery is still operational.

    The inclusion of the the external set / program button is most excellent. This is another great Insteon update to an existing product line.

    I have written the above review for the benefit of others as Smarthome / Smartlabs has been absolutely terrible in their communications to the customer base about changes to the product line.

    In 2015 your company needs to do a lot better in terms of updating the users manual and listing the change logs of features or deprecation of features from a product.

    Having a customer purchase a item only to find out a specific feature has been removed / omitted is NOT being customer focused!

    Lastly, your engineers need to relay this same information to the Tech Support people because they are getting bombed each day by customers telling them things they should already know!

    But don't because none of you talk to each other.

    Disappears in ISY Review by Mark
    Disappears in ISY

    Every time I reboot the ISY, I lose the connection to my open/close sensors. I have to remove them from ISY and re-add them.

    Otherwise, their function works like advertised.

    Missing Features Review by Charles
    Missing Features

    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.
