Aqara Announces New Door and Window Sensor With Support for Matter and Thread

Posted July 6, 2023 at 10:15pm by iClarified
Aqara has announced a new Door and Window Sensor P2 which features support for Matter and the latest Thread standard.

As a multipurpose sensor, the P2 can be used in a wide range of scenarios. Most commonly, homeowners can amplify their security systems with this contact sensor and have peace of mind knowing a timely alert will be pushed if any potential threats are detected. Homeowners can also integrate the P2 into various home automations, such as turning the thermostat off if a door or window is left open.

The P2 features a large-capacity 1400mAh CR123 battery for longer battery life and comes with an adhesive that Aqara says will not damage the wall if removed. An thin magnet plate is also included as an alternative method of installation.

Unlike other Aqara Zigbee devices, the P2 sensor connects directly to any Matter-enabled Thread Border Routers on the market and can be integrated into multiple Matter-enabled ecosystems via the additional Matter controller(s). Aqara plans to launch its own Thread Border Router, the Hub M3, in early 2024. Until then, users will need to have a third party Thread Border Router, like a HomePod, for this sensor to support Matter.

The M3 hub will be able to connect and control Aqara's own Zigbee and Thread devices and also control third-party Thread products. A few unique features will be become available for the Door and Window Sensor P2 when it's paired to the Aqara M3 hub, including the tamper alert, an adjustable sensitivity between 1-3 centimeters, and a programmable button that can be used to activate a customized home scene or automation.

You can purchase the Door and Window Sensor P2 at the link below for $29.99.
