The Notion sensor sticks to your door, wall, or ceiling. It'll sense when the door opens, when the alarm sounds, when the temperature spikes, or if the water leaks.

The sensors run on a coin battery that should last one to two years.

Setup is pretty simple, and you can choose what you want your sensor to monitor.
