Door sensor installation

With security you can depend on, trade alarm technicians for easy-to-use tech that lets you install new sensors in minutes without compromising your security

Important: If you are adding new equipment to your alarm system after initial setup, make sure you have already added this door sensor to your panel before installation.

Follow these steps:

  1. For best security results, be sure to place the door magnet and contact sensor within 2 inches of each other and align the two semi-circles from the contact sensor and magnet.

  1. Clean the surfaces of the door and molding before mounting the sensor.

  2. Remove the adhesive backing, press firmly, and hold in place for 30 seconds.

  1. If you have decorative molding, it may be better to reverse the setup (magnet on molding, contact sensor on door), doing this will not compromise the security of your door sensor.

  2. If needed, place either alarm piece at a 90 degree angle. As long as the alarm pieces are less than one inch apart, it will not compromise the integrity of your door sensor alarm.
