Amazon offers the Samsung SmartThings Multipurpose Sensor for $19.99 with free shipping for Prime members or in orders over $25. That’s good for a 20% discount from the going rate at Best Buy, is the lowest we’ve seen it go for this year and the second best offer all-time. This sensor can monitor if a door/window is open or closed, the room’s temperature and more. Rated 4.5/5 stars from over 480 customers. 

This sensor is a great addition to the SmartThings Smart Home Hub

SmartThings Multipurpose Sensor features:

  • We recommend placing the hub in an open area well away from other devices transmitting and receiving 2.4GHz signals (like WIFI routers).
  • The versatile Multipurpose Sensor is an all-in-one sensor that can detect vibration, orientation and angle (tilt), temperature and when things open or close
  • Monitor secure areas of your home and be alerted if a door, window, cabinet or drawer opens unexpectedly
  • Get a reminder if you forgot to close your front door or garage door
  • Know the temperature in any room or location
