    Good sensor but installation can be tricky

    • Written by Andrea S from Calgary

    The sensor is very useful but the installation can be tricky: the 2 sensors must be very close to eachother, almost in contact, when the door is closed. This is to avoid false notifications. It can be difficult to put them in contact in some installations.
    The configuration is very easy. The Elgato app very powerful as it can control all the Home Kit app.

    Regarding the HomeKit capabilities, it would be nice to receive notifications if, for example, a door is detected open for more than 20 mins. Unfortunately this feature must be implemented by Apple HomeKit as it is not related to Elgato ecosystem or to the sensors.
