Magnetic contact switch door sensor
Magnetic contact switch door sensor - This item says it's a door sensor but honestly, you can use this on anything with an open and close function - drawers, suitcases, cabinets, windows, etc. This magnetic contact switch door sensor consists of a reed switch enclosed in an ABS plastic case. When the two parts are away, the reed is open which means there's no connection. The switch closes when the two parts are in contact - hence the name. You can use this function to detect if a door is open or not. Moreover, you can buy mounting tabs and screws so you can easily install them into your doors.
Magnetic Contact Door Sensor: Description
The magnetic contact door sensor is an awesome and essential element of your home security system. It is a type of security alarm to let you know when someone enters the home. Two parts are adjoined to assemble these sorts of devices. By keeping them parallel to each other, they form a circuit. Each of the units is integrated on separate doors. When you open the door, both parts get separated and the circuit is broken that further triggers the control panel to sound an alarm.
Furthermore, doo sensors are simpler to install and easier to take these components for granted. However, you need to capture as much information as possible to use and maintain these devices working for longer. A magnetic contact is designed as a door and window sensor whose functionality uses an internal reed switch in connection with a magnetic. No other system is simpler than this for windows and doors. Hence, these devices are widely used to enhance home security.
As its name signifies, the magnetic sensor is to monitor a door or window by triggering an alarm when the door/window is opened. Due to the way they are used, these devices are also called magnetic contacts. The majority of these kinds of sensors execute the same doctrine if not all. The door and window sensor incorporates a sensor, an internal reed switch, and a separate magnet. It is installed on the door or the window frame whereas the magnetic is installed on the moving portion of the door/window. Make sure to place the magnet within about a half-inch of the sensor to bring the best results.
