How Do I Install A Recessed, Wired Window Sensor?
A recessed wired window sensor is installed in the frame of the window and the magnet is installed in the window frame directly across from the contact. Check the contact that is being used for the magnet spacing gap.
A hole must be drilled for the diameter of the recessed contact into the window frame.
Run a two conductor wire for the control panel to the hole which was just drilled. Feed the wire through the hole and splice the connection to the zip cord that houses the wire leads coming out of the recessed contact.
Press the recessed contact into the drilled hole until it is flush with the window frame.
Drill another hole directly opposite the contact in the window frame. Press the magnet into the hole.
Program the contact into your alarm panel.
Test the contact to make sure it is communicating with the panel.
The instructions listed are generic and users must know the diameter of the contact before drilling. Users must also know the magnet spacing gap to prevent false alarms.
