As per various other cases, the Tyco Door/Window Sensor Device Type Handler code is incorrect: Some Things are missing from SmartThings Authorize Things screen?
We will file a request to SmartThings to have it corrected. They have been very responsive and helpful, but it will have to cycle through their deployment timeline.
In the meantime, if you are comfortable doing so; you can make a copy of SmartThings's DTH code from this link to "My Device Types", add new line. Then "Publish For Me", and update your Devices to use your personal copy. We will soon write a detailed KB on how to make a personal copy and add the line:
Capability "Sensor" to it manually.
