HomeKit Window and Door Sensors
HomeKit door and window sensors let you keep track of your home through notifications, while you’re at home or away. These easy-to-install sensors come in two pieces, using magnets for detection and attach directly to most double-tape surfaces. Check out our guide to the best HomeKit sensors to help you choose the right one for your needs.
The Eve Door & Window sensor is a flexible sensor that uses a clip in the remote system for installation.

The door and window sensor from Koogeek is similar to Eve’s offer. However, it uses a simpler, more universal design that makes installation a little easier. Koogeek’s magnet portion is dimensionless, without spaces, and powerful enough to compensate for potential variations between surfaces. This sensor also uses a standard coin cell battery, which is easier to track when it is time to replace.

Despite its name, the Terncy Door sensor works with almost anything that opens and closes due to its compact design. The Terncy sensor uses Zigbee wireless, which requires the Terncy Home Center gateway, an additional expense, but opens the door to more accessories on the way. Zigbee connectivity also allows this sensor to operate for up to a year, without the need to replace the battery.
