Installing Door/Window Sensors

How to install Door/Window Sensors

Soon you’ll know whenever a door or window is opened or closed. Installing is easy and only takes a few minutes, let’s get started.

 

Circle icon in blue green gradient with number 1 in center

Unpack your new Door/Window Sensor, which also includes a magnet and adhesive.

Circle icon in blue green gradient with number 2 in center

Clean and dry the surface where you plan to put the sensor – it should be near the top of the door or window and close to the edge.

Before applying the adhesive, test the sensor placement.  The magnet and sensor should be on opposite sides and no more than ¼” apart so the door or window can open and close freely, without the sensor and magnet touching.

Put the adhesive strip on the sensor and magnet (see diagram):
 

  • Take the larger adhesive. Remove the protective strip on one side and apply it to the back of the sensor.
  • Now do the same with the smaller adhesive and apply it to the back of the magnet.

Adhere the sensor and magnet to your door or window:
 

  • Take the sensor and remove the other side of the adhesive protective strip. Attach it to the clean area on the door or window frame – press firmly and hold for 3 seconds
  • Now do the same with the magnet making sure the etched lines of the sensor and magnet line up. Remove the adhesive protective strip and attach it to the moving part of the door or window – press firmly and hold for 3 seconds.
