Honeywell 944T - 3/8” Diameter Recessed Contact with Screw Terminals Reviews
Submitted on 05/28/2020 Alarm Grid
The Honeywell 944T is a hardwired recessed door and window contact sensor with screw terminals for connecting wires. The sensor is 3/8" in diameter, and it will stay hidden with your door or window is closed. This is a very straightforward and simple recessed sensor if you are looking for a hardwired option. You can certainly count on it to monitor a door or window with very little fuss or inconvenience. That is why we give the Honeywell 944T a 5 Star rating.
There are many things to like about the Honeywell 944T. For one, it will be completely out of sight when the door or window is closed. The sensor includes screw terminals instead of leads, which some installers may prefer. Since this is a wired contact sensor, it will not draw any power from the panel. And like any Honeywell product, the 944T has an outstanding build quality. You can certainly expect it to last a long time. We also like the fact that the sensor has great versatility, as nearly any wired panel or wired to wireless converter will support the device.
There are few downsides to the Honeywell 944T. Since this is a recessed sensor, you will need to drill holes into the door or window and its accompanying frame. Most DIY installers just get surface-mounted contacts to skip this step. And since the sensor is wired, you will also need to run a wire from the panel to the sensor. Again, this can be troubling for a DIY installer. But if a 3/8" recessed hardwired door and window sensor is what you need, then you really cannot go wrong with the Honeywell 944T. For that reason, it gets a 5 Star rating from Alarm Grid.
Good: Sensor is Hidden, Screw Terminals, No Power Draw, Great Build Quality, Versatile
