The Fibaro Z-Wave Universal Sensor is a wireless module that makes it possible to improve the functionality of any sensor with a binary output by allowing it to communicate with the wireless Z-Wave network and the Z-Wave Gateway. Moreover, the module allows for wireless communication between the system and the DS18B20 temperature sensors. The device can service up to two binary sensors and up to four DS18B20 temperature sensors.
The Fibaro Z-Wave Universal Sensor may be used whenever wireless collection of data from wired sensors is required. Once additional safety housing have been installed, the device can also be used in areas with high humidity and high temperature.
The Fibaro Z-Wave Universal Sensor’s main function is the integration of the wireless Z-Wave System with the existing wire-based and wireless alarm and measurement systems.
