The ELK 319DG is a 319.5 MHz outdoor door and window sensor. It is designed for use with 319.5 MHz wireless alarm systems, including the 319.5 MHz version of the IQ Panel 2 Plus, the original IQ Panel 2, and the Interlogix Simon Panels. The sensor has an all-weather design for any climate.
The way that door and window sensors work is very simple. They consist of a main larger sensor and a smaller accompanying magnet. When the sensor and magnet are properly aligned, an internal reed switch inside the sensor will remain closed. When the door or window is opened, the reed switch will become released. This will tell the sensor to alert the system that the door or window has been opened.
Since this is an outdoor sensor, it is suitable for use in locations where it is likely to be exposed to the elements. This includes rain, dust, wind, heavy sunlight, and more. It operates safely in temperatures ranging from -40°F to 140°F, so it can really be used anywhere. It is great for use on patios, pool doors, fences, barns, and more. It auto-enrolls with a panel by putting the system into its auto-enrollment mode and then activating the sensor's tamper switch. Test the sensor after enrollment and installation.
The sensor uses two (2) CR2032 coin batteries for power. Batteries come included with the sensor. The maximum magnet spacing gap for the device is one (1) inch. It can be mounted with screws or using pipe straps or plastic ties. Mounting anchors and screws for screw mounting are included, but plastic straps are not. The sensor measures 3.39"L x 1.34"W x 0.79"D. Its magnet measures 3.0"L x 0.96"W x 0.8"D.
