contact sensors and moisture

My bathroom window is located in the shower. Will a contact sensor still work with daily showering? If not, perhaps this is an item the Team could look into for the future

Hi @itsjustme. We don’t recommend placing your Contact Sensor in an area with excessive humidity, as it could impact the device’s functionality. Although, it’s a great suggestion, and we’ll pass it on to the team.

We also have this as an issue. The bathroom window, located in the shower, is the most vulnerable entry location for our house. It would be great to a moisture-resistant sensor

Try my solution. Cheap, easy and you have fresh breath.

DIY Ring Contact Sensor Housing

The large z-wave sensor fits nearly perfectly in a tic tac box!. Nice and cheap water proof, clear container. Once you remove the lable it looks pretty good also.

The small part of the sensor is just a magnet so it should not need a housing. Just for giggles I popped small sensor housing and ran a very small amount of caulk on the magnet to prevent rusting. It should be fine exposed to the elements.
