Contact Sensor Alignment Issue

Contact Sensor Alignment Issue



I am facing an issue for installing contact sensors on door.


Gap between door frame and door is not wide enough to put contact sensor there.

So I have to put contact sensor (bigger element) on door frame. 


Due to this when door is closed, the other portion of contact sessor is completely unaligned to door frame sensor portion.


I think this might be common issue to few folks atleast. Is there any padding accessories anybody has tried and would suggest would be great help ?

Re: Contact Sensor Alignment Issue

Great question @Pratik! As mounting areas can vary from door to door we try to offer solutions, such as the slim magnet, for multiple mounting options. In this instance it may take a creative solution, like putting padding behind the magnet on the door.
