Covers and Magnets for PROSIXMINI2 Sensors in New Brown and Black ColorsPosted By Michael Goris
Alarm Grid is proud to offer a pair of new accessories for Honeywell Home PROSIXMINI2 Door and Window Sensors. We have 10-packs of replacement covers available in Brown (MINIBRNPK) and Black (MINIBLKPK), and 10-packs of replacement magnets, also in Brown (MINIMAGBRN) and Black (MINIMAGBLK).
If you aren't familiar with the Honeywell Home PROSIXMINI2, it is one of the leading door and window sensors for the Honeywell Home and Resideo ProSeries Alarm Panels. The sensor is known for its compact size of 2.9"L x 1.15"W x 0.75"D (73.66mm x 29.21mm x 19.05mm), its long-lasting battery life of at least 7 years, and its extended wireless range of more than 500 feet in an open-air environment. Like all PROSIX Series Sensors, the PROSIXMINI2 uses 128-bit AES encryption for advanced wireless security and protection.
Normally, the PROSIXMINI2 is only available in a White color option. Many users find this a bit disappointing, as the surface-mounted sensor will stick out very noticeably on darker brown or black doors and windows. With these replaceable covers and magnets, you can make a PROSIXMINI2 Sensor and its accompanying magnet Brown or Black in color. This can be very nice for achieving a more aesthetically pleasing installation. Just keep in mind that these replacement covers and magnets do not include any actual PROSIXMINI2 Sensors. These are just Brown and Black covers for existing PROSIXMINI2 devices and replacement magnets that can be used instead of the stock White magnets that are bundled with PROSIXMINI2 Door and Window Sensors.
Each replacement cover includes three (3) parts. These are the front cover for the sensor, the front cover of the magnet, and the back casing for the magnet. The back casing is basically the magnet's "backplate", as it is the portion that you mount to the door or window frame using either screws or some double-sided foam tape adhesive. All you have to do is remove the existing stock White front sensor, and replace it with the new Brown or Black cover. Then just do the same for the magnet's front cover and back casing.
Meanwhile, the replacement magnets are just like the original White stock magnets, only in a different color option. They can be split into three (3) components, those being the mounted backplate, the actual magnet inside, and the front cover that makes up most of the magnet's appearance. For best results, the magnet should be placed on the moving portion of the door or window, directly next to the main sensor on the door or window frame. When the door or window is opened, the magnet will separate from the sensor, thereby releasing the sensor's internal reed switch. This will cause the sensor to send a fault signal to the ProSeries Alarm Panel and trigger a system response. When installing, remember to observe the sensor's maximum magnet spacing gap of 1.15" (29.21mm) on non-metal surfaces. Please note that while the magnet is specifically designed for use with PROSIXMINI2 Sensors, it could really be used with any surface-mounted door and window sensor that is of a similar size.

At this time, we are only offering 10-packs of the Brown and Black replacement covers, as well as 10-packs of the Brown and Black replacement magnets. We are not offering single PROSIXMINI2 Replacement Covers or single PROSIXMINI2 Replacement Magnets at this time. This may be something we would consider offering in the future, but for now, these accessories can only be purchased in quantities of ten (10). Additionally, we are also not offering Brown or Black variants of the PROSIXMINI2 Sensor at this time. If you want one of these sensors in a Brown or Black color option, the best solution we can currently offer is to get a PROSIXMINI2 in the regular White variant, and then get a 10-pack of replacement covers in the desired color. Of course, this will leave you with nine (9) extra sets of covers, so it may not be exactly ideal, but it is still a viable option nonetheless.
Do you think you will use these Brown and Black sensor covers and magnets in your home or business. And what do you think of the PROSIXMINI2 Sensor in general?
