Click here for VOCOlinc smart sensor tutorial.
The VOCOlinc Smart Contact Sensor (VS1) lets you know the status of your doors, windows, cabinets or safety gates, by simply asking Siri or checking your iOS devices, wherever you are*, via HomeKit, Apple's smart home platform. You are able to receive a notification whenever there is any change in the status of your doors or windows, when equipped with the VS1. You can also use the VS1 to trigger scenes for home automations (e.g. open window > turn on humidifier). The VS1 uses Bluetooth low energy technology (BLE) and a replaceable battery (CR2032), which gives you up to 6 months of battery life. Setup is quick and easy. Make your house safer today.
* an Apple TV (4th gen or above), HomePod or suitable iPad is required as a Home Hub for remote access. VS1 is exclusively compatible with Apple HomeKit.
