Xiaomi Aqara Zigbee Shock Sensor


With this shock sensor from Xiaomi you can detect vibration and movement in a cheap way. He is already for sale for around 10 euros. It works via the Zigbee protocol and can therefore not be used in every controller. It is super compact with its 3.60 x 3.60 x 0.90 cm and on the back is a double-sided sticker. It is powered by a CR2032 which can be purchased almost everywhere. I have learned that the battery can last up to 2 years.

With this sensor you can get the following registrations: the angle, tilt alarm, fall alarm, vibration alarm and vibration value. The last 2 cases are not real-time and are collected by the sensor and every 300 seconds. sent to the controller. This is also a disadvantage of this sensor.

You can use this sensor to, for example, register whether something has been opened or to register that your washing machine is ready. Another application could be to use it as a glass break detection sensors.

This sensor is for sale between 10.00 and 15.00 euros depending on where you buy it.
