Portable Smart Motion Sensor (34193)
The GE branded Portable Smart Motion Sensor with Z-Wave Plus technology enhances a home’s safety, efficiency and intelligence. When the Portable Z-Wave Motion Sensor is positioned in main locations such as hallways, laundry rooms, or the garage, it can signal lights to automatically turn on/off based on occupancy, thus enabling homeowners to conveniently carry out hands-free operation for added energy savings. The GE branded Portable Motion Sensor is available online, and can also be bought from Wal-Mart.
Portable Smart Multi Sensor (35211)
The GE branded Portable Smart Multi Sensor manufactured by Jasco is a versatile compact smart sensor incorporating the latest Z-Wave Plus technology. It integrates three useful functions. Apart from movement detection, it also monitors and responds to changes in temperature levels as well as ambient lighting. The Portable Smart Multi-Sensor enables simple monitoring and control of things taking place at home, whether to see if a room is occupied, or check if the kids arrived home from school, or to detect the temperature around the house, without ever lifting a finger. The GE branded Smart Multi Sensor is anticipated to hit the markets by the second quarter of 2017.
