Z-Wave Alliance - Keep An Eye On Your Home With The FIBARO Motion Sensor That Detects the Slightest Motion

A 2015 CES Innovation Award Honoree in the Smart Home Category, the FIBARO Motion Sensor brings quick reactions, sensitivity and field of vision to one compact device. This highly advanced wireless device combines a built-in motion sensor, temperature sensor, light sensor and accelerometer. With a diameter of 44 millimeters (under 1-3/4 inches), it is the smallest device of its kind in the world. Designers of the FIBARO Motion Sensor were inspired by the pupil of a cat's eye: both its look, and its quick reactions. This extraordinary device incorporates four practical functions:  Detects the slightest motion (with the ability to adjust sensitivity)  Informs the user of the temperature level  Informs the user of light intensity  Detects any changes in device movement (vibration), alarming the user of any attempt at tampering. The FIBARO Motion Sensor is part of the intuitive and affordable FIBARO smart home system, which is able to control 95% of all home devices. The system can be easily managed by saying a few simple words (thanks to remote voice control), or through taps on the user's smartphone or tablet.
