These little devices are excellent monitors that can be attached to doors and windows, or set internally to capture motion. If the door or window is opened, a notification is sent to a smart device.
Eufy Wire-Free Entry Sensor
Requiring a Eufy HomeBase, this is the perfect door and window internal sensor to add to your Eufy ecosystem. Installation is easy using 3M tape already affixed to the sensors. When the sensors are broken, a 100-decibel siren will scream from the HomeBase unit (not included) and a push notification will be sent to your smartphone. The unit comes with a two-year battery. Home security doesn’t come much easier.
Once connected to a hub, the Sengled sensor set will not only send an alert to your smartphone if a door or window is opened, but can also be used to turn on the lights when the contact is broken. Handy if someone is breaking in or if you’re returning home from a big night out and need a little illumination when you get inside.
Eve Water Guard
It’s not just crims you need to protect your house from. If you’re away on business regularly or own a holiday home and want to ensure you’re guarded against dreaded water leaks, a water sensor is just the ticket. The Eve Water Guard is compatible with iOS devices only and has a two-metre cable for maximum coverage. It can be positioned under washing machines, sinks or just about any domestic water source. When linked to the app (Eve or Home), an alert will be sent directly to your smart device if any leak is detected.
