Automation ideas for an extra Xiaomi Aqara vibration sensor?

Before I bought power-monitoring outlets, I'd purchased two of these as vibration sensors for my washer and dryer.

I re-purposed one of them to monitor my garage door, where it has worked well to monitor open/closed positions. But the other one has just been sitting around for the last 9 months.

So, I'm looking for automation ideas that can make use of it.

Thanks!

I did put one of these on our Roborock S50, as soon the vacuum is moving and we're out all the motion detectors will be deactivated. Haven't missed so far! :slightly_smiling_face:

I put one in all of my portable fireproof/waterproof document safes. I also have one in the small safe next to my bed.

Do you have a sliding glass door? One could be used as a glass break sensor.

That's a great idea. I do have a safe, but it is bolted down in my closet. But I have large sliding patio doors - that's what I'll use it for. Thank you!!

I forgot about that. I have skylights that I put vibration sensors on.
