MOBI Door Sensor
Never liked technology but this is great and easy for me. I like that I can use it with my phone.
This was easy to setup. The Alexa interface feature was easy to setup and create routines in Alexa to announce on specific Alexa devices when the door opens and closes. Instructions were included to help get it connected to my assistants and physical installation. But it was pretty straight forward.
I am very happy with this sensor. It gets 5 stars.
I love MOBI devices, even when they are rebranded. It's my curse to have to load a new app onto my phone in order to test a product. I'm constantly signing up for accounts for these one-off apps that barely support a small line of products. Smart Life on the other hand supports just about everything... provided the OEM doesn't muck around too much. In the case of these Mobi smart door sensors, the Tuya coding is intact. These door sensors are easy to pair with Smart Life and work just great for triggering actions.
This particular door sensor is a bit better than most in that it has a tamper sensor. There's a little dealie that sticks out the back in case someone pulls this off the door. There are settings on the app that allow control over open, close, tamper and battery notifications. It's also got a time log history. All you could ask for in a door sensor.
I use mine on my front door. When there's motion outside my front door my doorbell camera triggers an event that turns on a light in the entry. When I open the door I have a event that turns that light off after a minute. The light serves as a way of letting me know there's a package outside the door and resets when I open the door. It also works to light up the entry when I come home and turns thing off because I don't hang out in my entryway for very long.
I've had the AAA batteries in this sensor for about 2 weeks and the battery still shows 100%. I don't expect it to go down much over 6 months.
I have two dogs at home who always try to run out the back to get the cat. I put this on the door so when Im in my home office it will notify me when they go out. This lets me relax a bit more.
