Samsung SmartThings Multisensor £19.99 Prime / £23.98 Non Prime @ Amazon

Found 10th Feb
This sensor does temperature, vibration, open/close and orientation. You'll need a SmartThings hub to utilise it.

Bought one last month and it's been very reliable. The Amazon reviews are mixed regarding this, but I've had no problems at all. This is the cheapest it has been outside of Black Friday, normally around the £21.99 mark or above.

Also a couple of the other sensors are similarly discounted to £19.99:

Cold from me. The Xiaomi sensors can be had for a fraction of this price and are a hell of a lot more reliable in my experience.

Good price but **** unreliable sensor. All Samsung sensors are playing up after time and show as unavailable. My xiaomi sensors for 5 GBP each work all the time

This is a post for Samsung's sensor, right? And the price for it is good. Why do you compare it with Xiaomi? Isn't it just a question of price for Samsung's sensor? I thought that this is not a review of all possible sensors.
Heat from me. Not had any issues with my sensors.
Maybe because it's more expensive and inferior than a cheaper and better rival product? Just a thought...
For what it is this is a very good price. I stick to Xiaomi sensors but they don't do vibration and orientation. Heat from me for what it can do at the price.
Do the xioami work with smartthings? All the sensors one seen on Amazon are at least £15, where are the £5 ones?
I've used about 8 of these sensors for over a year, not had a single issue, not reliability issues. I've also bought around 8 XIaomi sensors that have all failed or not worked from the start.

​8 not working sensors from xiaomi?? No way...
I use the Xiaomi, got quite a few and they work great. This is good if you want the accelerometer.

They're an absolute nightmare to pair and they drop off or cease to notify, never had any issues with the samsung ones at all. You get what you pay for I guess.

I've got 3 of the Xiaomi ones and mixed results. The 2 door sensors keep dropping off but the temperature sensor has been ok once I managed to get it working.

Each to their own
My xiaomi aqara sensors worked perfectly with SmartThings. I used a custom device handler.
I have around 35 - 40 sensors - window/ motion and temperature - and in the year or so I've had them one has failed. Yes pairing is a PITA but once you get how to do it with a pin it takes about a minute. Plus battery life is excellent. Additionally if you can solder the Xiaomi ones can also do water detection and orientation detection for at most a few quid more. For the price they wipe the floor with the Samsung ones.

So you'd prefer not to be told about a better and cheaper sensor and instead just save a small amount on the one in the post? Not sure you understand the point of HUKD if that's the case.

It is a good alternative for some people, but not a 100% replacement that will suit everyone.
1. Does Xiaomi has the same sensors? Temperature, gyroscope
2. Security. Some people will not want Chinese sensor as part of their smart home.

So I would perfectly understand mentioning it here, but not "cold" or voting down Samsung's sensor on a basis of Xiaomi.

Fair enough, I admit that strictly speaking this is not a cold deal if you consider only the cost of the Samsung sensor vs RRP. It is though, in my opinion, not a good deal when compared to the capability and cost of comparable sensors, such as the Xiaomi ones. So I have voted it cold on that basis.
