QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
What Z-wave sensors can these be connected to?
These can be connected to any Z-wave device that accepts a binary or switch input.
A common choice is the Fibaro Door Window Sensor if you want battery powered. Otherwise you can use any of the in-wall modules and connect these to the switch input if you want something mains powered.
The devices themselves need DC 12-24V DC power in as well.
Do these have an IP rating as I’d like to have something outside on my driveway
These aren't IP Rated, and even if they were the IR transcievers aren't suitable for outdoor use - they'd get washed out by sunlight.
There are IR Beam sensors specifically for outdoor use on driveways but we don't stock them. For example: https://www.jaycar.com.au/weatherproof-commercial-grade-infrared-beam/p/LA5179
