Are there any good z-wave or zigbee external motion detectors that anyone's used?  I have an abode security system (which works with IFTTT) so with this new Arlo integration, I could put some theoretically lower-cost, much-lower-lag device further up my sidewalk and use an IFTTT recipe to get my porch Arlo recording faster.

 

Any suggestions?

Now I know there are not too many outdoor all weather sensors.

 

I am using this zwave sensor http://www.amazon.com/Aeon-Labs-Aeotec-Z-Wave-Multi-Sensor/dp/B008D5TYGU/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1462...

 

Works great with my Smart Home and it is an Outdoor Sensor.  No complaints so far.

Laguna,

 

While IFTTT support is now available, we are still working on optimizing this feature. For best results, we recommend users wait until an official announcement before taking advantage of IFTTT.

.........James...... did you just tell me not to use IFTTT?  Did you just say you have a live IFTTT channel that we shouldn't use?  Are you indicating it might go away soon?

No, he implied that they're killing bugs to make it function 100%
