Monoprice Zwave sensors

Just wondering if it's possible to use Zwave sensors with Control4 such as those now sold by Monoprice.  I've been looking to use something like CardAccess but for over $100/sensor it's a bit much.  I currently have a Ge Concord security system but those motion sensors have a 3 minute delay before they can be triggered again for event programming.

Here is the new sensor which is certainly reasonably priced if it integrates with Control4.

If they'll work with the Mi Casa Verde system, ExtraVegetables (EV) offers a driver for that Z-Wave system.

 

Others may offer other Z-Wave gateway drivers, although I'm not aware of them.

 

Otherwise, Control4 doesn't directly interface with Z-Wave.

Ryan, 

So basically it sounds like a module made by Mi Casa Verde is needed to communicate between the ZWave device and the Control4 controller?  I've done a Google search but can't seem to find the device that would be needed for this. 

I see the difference between Card Access is that is Zigbee Pro vs. Zwave....

Mhh the CA, Nyce and Axxess sensors that directly integrate also tend to be noticeably faster by not going through a gateway. Also, Card Access I know is made in US, Axxess Ind devices are made in Canada - while Monoprice is by default China made - that tends to explain a LOT of the higher price as well.
