Do any of the products connect to IFTTT, Google Home, Alexa?

I was also looking at the motion sensor. Does it work on batteries? Also does it say it can be used outdoor? We want to get something to advise when someone get close to the door outside.

Thanks

I have the motion sensor working with SmartThings through a custom Device Handler. Since SmartThings connects to Google Home and Alexa, I'll say yes. However, if you use their hub and their app - maybe not. It seems to me that if it did, it would be front and center on their web page. Also, in searching through IFTTT, I don't see the Orvibo service listed.

Yes, it does - 2 AA batteries to be exact. According to people who use it, batteries last 9 months to a year. I installed mine 3 days ago and the device handler I use with SmartThings says my batteries are still 100%. I don't see this working outside. In fact, the instruction says keep away from damp or humid places.

I wonder if it'll work with the Smart Life app which in turn works with the various assistants.

I'd like to pair this to internet connected bulbs or outlets.

Yes, you go to "Your Account" Redeem Points first . Then select a store credit amount that will appear as an option during checkout.
I bought the door/window sensor with hub for $14.99 this morning, applied a $10 store credit and paid $7.24 net after the store credit. I believe $10 for 10,000 points is the minimum.

I see that but it got me confused because in the cart there's a little note mentioning you can redeem store credit at checkout like typical places work.

I'm interested in putting the motion sensor outside the house to monitor if anyone walks onto my porch. I have a brick wall. I don't know how far inside my house I can locate the hub ? Is it fair to assume 15 feet in will work ? Does the hub have to be physically connected to my network router with a network cable or will it connect to my wireless network ?

It's really too bad that companies go to so much effort to produce dirt cheap hardware, but can't be bothered to make their software work. If the Livingwise stuff doesn't integrate with Google Home, Alexa, and IFTTT, it's basically useless.

Not useless at all. If you have a decent setup - SmartThings, HomeAssistant etc you can make these things work. The dirt cheap hardware is a godsend if you don't mind putting a bit of work into the integration.

I haven’t explored this yet but which device handler did you use for this one?

Man, was going to try to stick with Z-Wave devices, but at this price, might as well try it out. Too bad there's no temperature sensor with the motion one though.
