Mounting the REED-SENSOR to a Wall, Door, or Window Frame
The main sensor unit and magnet unit should be placed in a manner such that when the door/window is closed, they are within 2cm. from each other. By opening the door or window, these two units should separate in proximity.
NOTE: The Reed-Sensor should be positioned vertically against the door/window frame.
NOTE: Nexus devices should not be mounted directly on or near metal framing or other large metallic objects. This will reduce the NEXUS-NETWORK range.
NOTE: This product should only be placed indoors and away from sources of water/moisture and other extreme weather conditions.
Screw the bidirectional mounting plate and the magnet unit into the wall, door or window frame. Use the provided screw anchors if attaching the Reed-Sensor to a soft material (such as drywall).
Alternatively, peel and attach the double-sided mounting tape to the back of the bidirectional mounting plate and magnet unit to adhere to the wall, door or window frame.
Hook the sensor into the mounting plate by inserting the hitch and pressing firmly. Ensure that the orientation dimples of the sensor and magnet are facing each other.
When used properly in an optimised NEXUS-NETWORK, the AAA battery can last up to 2 years with regular usage.
To replace the battery, unhook the sensor from the bidirectional mounting plate by depressing the latch button (on the side) and pulling the sensor body outward to separate the sensor from its bidirectional mount.
Insert new battery and reattach the sensor to the mounting plate.
