Z-Wave Products
« on: July 20, 2008, 07:06:03 pm »
My Company Techstyle UK Ltd. (www.techstyleuk.co.uk) imports products from the far east to Europe and North America for Wholesale and Retail customers.

In my search for new products (and because I have set up a LMCE system) I have found a supplier for Z-wave products.  Below is an example of the products/prices:

Window/door sensors  - £20.99
PIR Motion Sensor - £24.99

I am looking for some feedback on prices and interest from the LMCE community.

could you provide test samples of those?

I'm just rewriting the Z-Wave code, and this sounds very interesting. I assume they work on EU Z-Wave frequencies (868Mhz)?

best regards,
Hari

No idea how I missed this thread. Z-wave window/door sensors for the E.U. are nowhere to be found atm so this does indeed sound interesting.

Everspring also has those sensors, but I don't know if they already released them.

I've tried finding them but no luck, so I guess not. I haven't sent them any email though. There's also Hawking Technology that's selling the same sensors in white (model: HRDS1). They have it on some european ebay sites/shops but they're not 868Mhz :S

I will send samples to help with the code development, although I don't have them at the moment.  I wanted to see if there was interest before importing them because I have to import a large quantity to make it viable.

They could be either be EU or US frequency from our US or UK office.

Do people think the prices I quoted are desirable?

Hi,
Depending on the conspicuity of the sensors, I would probably buy a few PIR sensors at that price. It depends a little bit on the exact specs, too, but price seems ok to me.

if the samples work (and I assume that if they follow the Z-Wave spec) I'd buy two PIRs and two door/window sensors.

best regards,
Hari

Hey,
Price seems fine. As said earlier I'd be mostly interested in the window/door sensors but the PIR's too.

We'd be interested in both PIR's and door/window sensors. We'd buy some samples for testing too... when will you have samples?

All the best

Hallo Jason,

situated in Germany I would also be interested in the Window/door sensors and maybe also the Motion sensor. Will you be delivering to Germany / Denmark (I will be moving to Denmark soon) ?
