Smart solutions for your home
Hama WiFi door and window contact
Windows, doors, patio doors or garage doors often provide easy entry points for a burglar. If you do not want to convert your flat, house or property into a loathsome high-security wing, our door and window contact gives you uncomplicated added security without building-related downsides. If windows and doors are opened when nobody is at home, you will receive an alarm notification on your smartphone, enabling you to take rapid action.
Feel safe at home and away
WiFi door and window sensors as a warning system
The current state of windows and doors is displayed on your smartphone by the WiFi sensor using the Hama Smart Home app. If there is a change to this state, you will receive an alarm push notification. The door and window contact, therefore, not only gives you timely information about a possible break-in; the state report also alerts you, for example, if the patio door was inadvertently closed by the cleaning lady so that the dog can no longer go outside while you are out shopping; or if the house sitters have accidentally left a window open while you’re on holiday. You can then sort out these problems by making a simple call. Similarly, you will receive an alarm message if someone tampers with the closed window, or with the door and window sensor itself. You can then notify the police or neighbours in no time at all, and scare away or ideally catch the burglar.
For a more forceful deterrent, you can link the door and window sensor to an alarm siren which is connected using our WiFi socket, for example. In this case, you should note the following: If house sitters, children or dog walkers will be coming into the house and will need to open windows and doors fitted with the contact, you should first disable it for the duration of their presence.
Simply ask Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant
Of course, the WiFi contacts can also be connected to Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. You can then simply use a voice command to query the state of all doors and windows fitted with our door and window security devices. The status query works with the following voice command: ‘Alexa/OK Google, is my window/door open/closed?’
Door and window security made easy
simple installation without a hub
Many smart home products require an additional gateway that functions as a transmitter between the wireless network and device. Without this gateway (also bridge or hub), a connection cannot be established between the smartphone/tablet and smart device (smartphone/tablet – WiFi – gateway/bridge – smart device). Here, Hama has a clever and practical solution: The WiFi door and window contact can be installed without a gateway and integrated directly into your wireless network – this simplifies installation and saves additional costs.
The WiFi contact consists of two parts – a sensor and the device itself. For the sensor to respond reliably, you should fit it directly to the window or door frame, and the second part directly to the window. Both must be in line. Drill-free mounting is possible thanks to the adhesive pad. If you prefer to rely on the secure hold of screws, the door and window contact can be screwed on. Once the contact has been mounted, you insert the batteries: The installation now continues step by step.
Quick and easy setup
All you need to set up the WiFi door and window contact is the Hama Smart Home app, which you can download onto your smartphone or tablet for free from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store. The app makes it easy to connect Hama Smart Home products to your home WiFi network. No expensive additional gateway or hub is required; it simply works with any wireless router.

Installing the WiFi door/window contact consists of just a few stages.
Program smart scenes with the door/window contact as release or control the current state (closed/open) via app or voice.
All Hama Smart Home products can now be controlled not only with Alexa and the Google Assistant, but also with the voice assistant Siri.
1 Create a scene
The Siri Shortcuts function enables the control of smart scenes that first have to be created. For this purpose, create a scene in the usual way that you want to activate with Siri. The existing process remains unchanged.
2 Open Siri Shortcuts
In the app The overview page displays all set-up scenes. You will find the new ‘Siri Shortcut’ button in the lower right-hand area. Tap the button.
3 Select the scene you want
A page opens, on which you can add your scenes to a Siri Shortcut. To do so, press the plus sign next to the relevant scene.
4 Create a shortcut
You can now create the shortcut. To do so, enter the wording for the command that is to be used to start this scene. If, for example, you have created a scene for a film night and would like to add it to the Siri Shortcuts, a suitable command would be ‘Start the film night’. Once you have tapped ‘Add to Siri’, you can then simply say to Siri, ‘Hey Siri, start the film night’. Siri will then run the ‘Film night’ scene from the Hama Smart Home app.
Additional tip: To control individual devices with Siri, simply create short scenes that are responsible only for switching on, switching off or switching over the individual device, and add them to Siri. ‘Fan on’, ‘Light off’, ‘Hey Siri, see to the light’ – there are no limits to your imagination!
