I have Wyze sensors, but am willing to try this too - code came within 10 minutes, it's $100 normally but they'll send it for free. I guess they're banking on people continuing with the subscription.

Received Installed, Works great at least now I don't have to double back and question whether I closed the garage or not, open the app and it will let you know!

Thank you all

They sent me 2 codes so I received 4 sensors. Nice of them and I will be subscribing when I travel. They work well.

If you tie them into Home Assistant, you should be able to use them as generic door sensors.
How did you get them into hass? Did you just link them to the Ecobee without the subscription, then they were detected in hass through the ecobee integration?

I tried calling customer service a few times but ultimately I was not eligible for the offer so i never go the door sensors.
I had previously purchased extra temperature sensors for my ecobee, and those show up in home assistant when I added the ecobee integration.
They also report occupancy but are not very accurate, and quite slow.

Great way to know if your kid went to school or not. Also great way to trick your parents you left when you are supposed to by opening and closing the door and rather staying home playing video game instead.

Yes the circular part at the bottom is a motion sensor. It's okay. I'm on the fence as to whether to spend the $7 per month but they extended my free trial to mid November

The room sensors detects occupancy in a 30min window.

How did you manage to get 2 codes? Lol

Their online support takes a long time to reply. I asked a few times and different people replied with different codes.

Has anybody found a software which works with these windows/doors sensors?
