Excellent Door/Window Sensor
Submitted on 05/13/2020 Alarm Grid

The Honeywell PAL-T is a hardwired surface-mount door and window sensor. This sensor will let a system know when a door or window has been opened. It is an extremely popular door and window sensor due to its compact size and ease of use. Nearly anyone needing a hardwired door and window sensor can make use of the Honeywell PAL-T. It is a fantastic sensor, and we can wholeheartedly recommend it. Therefore, we give the Honeywell PAL-T a 5 Star rating.

There are many things we like about the Honeywell PAL-T. For one, it is extremely compact, meaning you can fit it into a variety of tight spaces and areas. This also makes it less noticeable when installed. The Honeywell PAL-T has an easy-open cover that makes it easy to access the wire terminals. The surface-mount contact is extremely easy to install, thereby making it a great option for both professionals and DIYers alike. We love the extra wide magnet spacing gap of 1.125 inches, which is a little more than twice the magnet spacing gap for a typical door and window sensor. The sensor can be mounted with screws or with double-sided foam tape. This gives the user great flexibility in choosing a location for the sensor. It conveniently uses a 2-wire connection, with six (6) wire entry points.

We do not have many downsides for the Honeywell PAL-T. One small issue is that this is a Form A device, meaning that you must use Normally Closed (NC) wiring. You cannot use Normally Open (NO) wiring with the Honeywell PAL-T. And as a surface-mount sensor, it will be visible from the outside. But these minor downsides do not stop us from giving the Honeywell PAL-T a 5 Star rating.

Good: Compact, Easy Access Cover, Simple Installation. Wide Magnet Spacing, Different Mounting Options, 6 Wire Entry Points

Bad: Form A, Visible from Outside

Bottom Line: 5 Stars
