I am using this sensor with Smartthings. I had to get this sensor because I needed a very thin form factor sensor to work with a sliding glass door. This sensor paired perfectly just like any other sensor made by Samsung. Like other door/window sensors, it needs to have one contact go on the frame. They recommend it to be a plastic frame, otherwise there could be interference. Due to the setup of my frame and door I was not able to get these right next to each other but it still had a good range to recognize the door is closed. So far after two months I haven't had any false sensor readings. The battery is still reading at 91% on a fairly frequently used door.
So far I highly recommend it.
So far so good. The only annoying thing about this sensor, is that it is difficult to remove from a sliding door or window.
If you push the sensor all the way into the corner of the door or window frame, you may have difficulty removing it to recharge it or press the action button. As you have to slide the device towards the frame to remove it from its mounting bracket. Drop the sensor as low as possible near the fixed edge (the edge that is always next to the frame, even when open) of the window or door. They provide a large and a small magnet, use the larger magnet on the edge of the sensor that you dropped down for removal clearance, and the smaller magnet on the other edge. Then when you open the door or window, you should be able to remove the sensor. The manual doesn't mention this in the install instructions, and it may cause you to have to remount if you're not careful.
This site rates the battery life lower than the manufacturer does, so I'm interested...
There is nothing small about this unit. It's half the thickness of the Samsung sensor but a significantly larger footprint. I guess it can be painted, but can't the other ones too?
I will add that the magnet piece is very small and easily "hidden" within the door frame, which is nice. Don't know yet but hopeful the battery indication is more reliable and consistent curve than the ST sensors that stop reporting at ~ 66% (although that might still be an issue with these small rechargeable lithium batteries).
