The smart home consists of many different facets. There are the smart bulbs and smart plugs that we’re all very much aware of, but then there are less popular and less obvious smart home bits and pieces out there. The wireless door and window sensor is a great example, and it can be used to kick off all kinds of wonderful automation. The folks at Koogeek have just the kind of thing we’re talking about, and right now there’s a deal you won’t want to miss out on.

The deal is for the Koogeek Wireless Door/Window Sensor, and it’s a pretty great looking sensor as far as sensors go. The looks aren’t the best part though, because unlike many accessories in the smart home market, these work just fine with Apple’s HomeKit. That’s a big deal if you’re all-in on HomeKit, and with no hub required, there’s no messing around with extra bits of kit, either.

So, why would you want a door or window sensor? Loads of reasons, starting with the obvious if receiving notifications on your phone when a door or window is opened. That can be useful if you’re out of the home and know that a door or window has been opened. If you’re someone who goes out and can’t remember if they closed all of the windows, then that’s another awesome use case for something like this. And we haven’t even started on the automation that can be kicked off when a door or window opens! Imagine having all of your lights come on when you walk in through the door. Or the heating turn off when you open a window.

Oh, and this is all pretty cheap right now, too.

So what are you waiting for? It might be worth picking a few of these sensors up now, while the price is right. Just in case you want to add them to more windows or doors further down the line.
