Introduction – What the Shelly devices can do …

Those who have read the previous Shelly Smart Home review and our Shelly manual already know that Shelly devices can be integrated directly into an existing Wi-Fi network and do not require their own basestation or hub. To operate or read out the individual devices, there are basically several possibilities:
– Via app.
– Via the Shelly Cloud homepage.
– Directly in the network via IP address.
– With alternative Smarthome systems (MQTT broker).
– Via integration into systems like Alexa, Google Home, Apple Home.

This time we take a closer look at the following components:
– Shelly Door Window 2
– Shelly Motion 2
– Shelly Flood

These are plug and play devices, which means that you do not need any electrotechnical knowledge with these products and the installation is not dangerous, because they are battery or accumulator operated and not handled with mains voltage.

Scope of delivery …

Unfortunately, the products do not come with batteries. That is, you have to buy them separately, which is a bit annoying, because it is partly not common AA or AAA batteries, but CR123A. Which brings us to the delivery of the Shelly sensors.

Shelly Door Window 2 is delivered in a small black cardboard box.

Included in the box is a small magnet, the Shelly sensor, instructions and a Shelly QR code, but not the two CR123A batteries required.

The Shelly Motion 2 comes in a small white box.

There are some accessories included here, such as flexible bracket, wall sticker, reset pin and instruction manual.

The Shelly Flood also comes in a small white box with a few technical specifications and a product picture.

Included here is the fully assembled Shelly Flood and a small manual along with the Shelly QR code. The necessary CR123A battery is unfortunately not included.

Before we get down to the nitty-gritty, let’s take a look at the technical specifications.
