Enable Z-Wave for Wired Dry Contacts

Add any wired dry contact sensor to your wireless Z-Wave network with the Aeon Labs Aeotec Z-Wave Dry Contact Sensor (Gen5). This simple sensor provides a wiring terminal to accept any dry contact sensor with wire measuring from 18AWG to 20AWG. It’s perfect for adding Z-Wave communication to wired water level sensors, dry contact switches and relays, and other dry contact devices. And once the sensor is paired with your Z-Wave network, the connected dry contact can be configured remotely over Z-Wave.

  • Enables Z-Wave communication for a wired dry contact
  • Terminal accepts wire sizes from 18AWG to 20AWG
  • "Z-Wave Plus" certified for wide compatibility
  • Optionally mounts with included hardware

How the External Sensor Connects

Designed for quick setup, the Dry Contact Sensor features a wiring terminal for your external sensor with a "Fast Wiring Button". Simply press and hold the button, insert the external sensor’s wires (may require stripping), and then release the button to clamp the wires. The terminal accepts wire sizes from 18AWG to 20AWG that can bear the tension of 25N.

With an integrated mounting bracket, the Dry Contact Sensor can optionally be mounted using the included screws or double-sided tape.
