Works well but a couple issues

It works quite well and i enjoy having them installed. However a couple issues really at the forefront:
1. Battery life. In spite of improving heartbeat settings, etc. the battery life is not great. Gets about 6 months. That's a lot of churn across 7 door sensors - feels like the old smoke detector days - which now have lifetime batteries.
2. Random behavior at times - where door sensors start triggering random on/off's at odd times when there is no motion - suspect it is due to switch contacts failing at some point. Have had to replace them.

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback on our Hidden Door Sensor. We do apologize for the issues you have experienced. We understand that battery life can be a concern and we are continuously working on improving this aspect. Regarding the random behavior, please contact our support team ( if you haven't done so already as we're always here to assist with any issues.

Hidden Door Sensor - works well, easy install

The Insteon Hidden Door Sensors have been a great addition to my smart home. They work well and were easy to install with the extra spacers provided where needed and fast to configure. I've been able to include them in scenes and automations.

Thank you for your positive feedback on our Hidden Door Sensor! We're glad to hear that it has been a great addition to your smart home and that installation and configuration were easy for you.

Easy install and good functionality

I have a hidden door sensor on every entry door of my house and have used them for years. They are easy to install (once you get past the "Drill a big hole" issue, but even that is on the inside jamb so won't show if you mess anything up). Being battery-powered, however, has two issues: Battery life isn't stupendous, and you only get one shot at "battery level low." That means (historically, probably still the same although these new ones could be better) when it sends out the "battery low" signal, you'd better not miss it or you may find yourself with voltmeter in hand checking them all (I think a regular battery-change schedule would be well-advised for high-security applications instead of waiting as I do). Overall, they are very good at what they do and much less visible than the tape-on magnetic sensors.

Thank you for your review and feedback on our Hidden Door Sensor. We're glad to hear that you have found it easy to install and that it is functioning well for you. As for the battery life, we are continuously working to improve it and we appreciate your suggestion. Thank you for choosing our product and for your support over the years.
