the magnet, the external wires must be disconnected.
One side of the sensor is marked with 3 lines; this indicates the location of the reed switch. The magnet should
be mounted facing this side of the sensor, and be
no further than 5/8” (15.875mm) from the sensor.
Included with this device
is double sided tape for the contact and the magnet.
Choose a suitable location for the
sensor by following the procedure in the section “Testing the Sensor” ensuring desired sign
al strength is
For reliable bonding
ensure the surface is clean and dry. Apply the tape to the sensor and then to the
desired location. Apply firm pressure for several seconds.
When mounting with double sided tape, ensure temperatures are above 50°F and will remain above 50°F
for at least 24 hours to ensure proper bond. After 24 hours, the bond will hold at lower temperatures.
a mounting back plate with screws is provided. Simply screw the back plate onto the mounting
surface and snap the sensor onto the mounting plate.
To remove the sensor from the mounting plate, first remove the cover. At the bottom of the sensor (closest to
the battery) a small tab will be visible. Use a small flat head screwdriver to press the plastic tab towards the wall,
slide the sensor up.
: Do not use the tape to secure the mounting plate to the wall.
Where possible, install sensors
within 100 ft. (30 m) of the panel. While a transmitter may have an open
range of 500 ft. (150 m) or more, the environment at the installation site may have a significant effect on
operational range. Changing a sensor location may improve wireless comm
The contact comes from the factory assembled with a white cover, but included is an optional brown cover. To
change the cover, slide the front cover to disengage it from the sensor then remove. Replace with the desired
er ensuring the Top (as marked on the inside of the cover) points away from the battery. You should hear a

because once mounted the back is not visible
. To replace the magnet cover you will need to gently pry the white
cover off with a flat head screw driver and snap the brown cover in place.
Replacing the Battery
When the battery is low
a signal will be sent to the control panel. To replac
e the battery:
Slide the top cover to disengage it from the sensor
hen remove it to reveal the battery.
(Removing the cover will trigger a zone tamper signal to the control panel.)
Install / r

of the cover) points away from
You should hear a click when the cover engages properly.
Testing the Sensor (Test Weekly)
The sensor test verifies
proper communication between the sensor and the panel/receiver. To test the sensor,
refer to the specific panel/receiver documentation and do the following:
1. Put the panel/receiver into sensor test mode.
2. Open the door/window the sensor is protecting.
The sensor transmits a signal.
3. Listen for siren beeps to determine the appropriate response.
4. Exit sensor test mode.
