2GIG Door/Window sensor
« on: August 05, 2011, 06:48:30 pm »
As anybody use the 2GIG sensors.  I noticed they are $25 on Amazon.  About half what Aeon or Hawking.

Are they Z-Wave sensors?
Dezwaved at the moment...

I can tell you just from the model # they are NOT Z-wave.

I have a 2-Gig system, and a Honeywell (Ademco) Vista 20P both with wireless.

they use "345" MHz transmitters, look at the part #.. that would be your hint, also check eBay, you will see they are for the Ademco/Honeywell/2Gig wireless system, you need an alarm panel to use these door contacts.

Here is the PDF on the unit, you can clearly see it operates on 345Mhz.

I saw these yesterday on amazon also.  They are tagged zwave, but they're not really zwave. 

The HRDS1s have been out of stock for a while.  They work great (I have 4) with vera.  They show $50 now, but were $36 not too long ago and prime eligible.  I'm waiting for them to get back to that price to pick up a couple more.

I guess it's been mis-tagged.  what a shame, great price if it was really zwave. I have 1 Hawkings and 1 Aeon door sensor. I have not had them long enough to tell which one I like better.  I like the external wire connections of the Hawking.  I have 2 doors wired in series for 1 sensor. So that came in handy. If you seem them on sale again, let us know.  I need bunch more.

Oops.  wrong category.  I hate when i do that.
