If Zigbee is a part of your smart home, you probable heard of that sensor ! 

Aqara’s ZP1 is a radar presence sensor that can detects you even if you’re not moving.
It’s a bit slow to trigger lights, but pretty accurate to know if you left a room.

On my side, I use it in my living room, so it turns off the TV and lights when no one is there.

This one can save you a lot of trouble ! 

Also using Zigbee, this device can be installed anywhere in your home to watch for any water leak.

I do have some of them in different locations, such as behind toilets, in the laundry room and near the water valve. 

I also saw few people putting them in there shower to know whenever it was in use, which is kind of clever 🙂
