      Cool idea, not very accurate device.

      Reliable contact sensor

      These sensors have worked great for me since day one. They've only missed or mis-reported a door opening once or twice, but overall their accuracy is very high These sensors have worked great for me since day one. They've only missed or mis-reported a door opening once or twice, but overall their accuracy is very high - I'd say over 99%. I mostly interact with them through the iOS 10 Home app and not the Eve app. They are setup to provide push notifications to my devices, and it's nearly flawless. The batteries seem to have a pretty long shelf-life too. After several months of daily use, they still show nearly full battery levels.

      Easy Setup

      Didn't think I'd find a good use case for this.. Until I brought one.

      I was looking to expand on my HomeKit setup and was skeptical about this thing. Didn't see the value upfront. But, I decided to give one a try and am glad that I was looking to expand on my HomeKit setup and was skeptical about this thing. Didn't see the value upfront. But, I decided to give one a try and am glad that I did. Installation was simple. I have moldings around all of my doors and even with those, I was able to make these fit perfectly. They're smaller than the pictures make them look. As always, setup was simple. I've got a few things I've used these for now. I really only use my front door to get the mail. Well, combined with a Hue Light, when I open the front door, the light goes. When I shut it, it goes off. Notifications are also a nice feature here. Every time a door opens, I get a notification. Hopefully I'll never have to receive one when I'm at work and not expecting any visitors but I have that added sense of security. Definitely worth the cost.

      Works as advertised

      Set up was quick. Response of the alert is almost immediate... under two seconds. With AppleTV, I get notice of an opening or close anywhere I am. Best HomeKit Set up was quick.
