Cora™ CS1040 Tilt & Vibration Sensor

The CS1040 is a long-range, low-power tilt and vibration sensor supporting LoRaWAN or Coralink wireless protocols. The sensor provides configurable, real-time notifications or regular reported statistics.

The sensor can be readily attached to doors, garage doors, windows, firearms, jewelry boxes, or machinery. The sensor detects motion in all three dimensions. Small and low profile, the sensor can be used for a wide variety of applications where detection of vibration or tilt is required.

The CS1040 is powered by two AAA batteries providing 2+ years of operation in typical conditions. Batteries can be easily replaced.
