How Does a Door/Window Alarm Sensor Actually Work?
Most door and window sensors work in the same manner. These devices consist of both a sensor and a magnet. When the door or window opens, the magnet will become separated from the sensor. This will cause the sensor to send a signal to the security system. Learn more about door and window sensors.
