ClareOne Door Window Sensor with Shock Sensor Installation Sheet

CLR-C1-DWSHK (White), CLR-C1-DWSHK-B (Brown)

ClareOne Door Window with Shock Sensor Front


The CLR-C1-DWSHK is a wireless window sensor designed for dual protection; open/close and to detect vibrations made by an intruder attempting to break a window. The sensor contains a piezo detection device that detects vibrations when mounted on a window frame. The detection circuit can be adjusted for sensitivity during installation to ensure maximum coverage. The device also has a built-in reed switch to monitor the open and close of the door or window. When activated, the sensor transmits a signal to the control panel. These are the signals the unit provides: supervisory, tamper, and low battery (as needed). The sensor is powered by (2) replaceable 3-VDC, lithium coin-cell batteries.

Note: The sensor has 2 alarm zones:

  • Alarm zone 1- reed switch
  • Alarm zone 2- shock/glass break


When installing the door window shock sensor, follow the below guidelines.

  • Mounting the sensor on metal can affect the transmitting range performance. Therefore, test the sensor from the desired location using the installer sensor test in the ClareOne panel, before permanently mounting it.
  • Mount the sensor on the frame of the door or window.
  • Mount to either wood or metallic surfaces.
  • After mounting the sensor, test the sensor using the procedure in the section “Testing the Sensor”.

Mounting the sensor

Mount the sensor using the supplied mounting screws for permanent mounting installations or using the supplied double-sided tape is optional.

Note: The gap between the sensor and magnet should not exceed .38 in (9.65 mm).

The center of the magnet will align with the arrow which is embossed on the side of sensor's main body (the location of the arrow will vary by sensor type).

Mounting screws

  1. Remove the sensor base from the sensor.
  2. Place the sensor base in desired location and mount the base with the supplied screws.
  3. Reattach the base to the sensor.
  4. Mount the magnet into the desired location using the supplied screws, making sure the alignment mark lines up with the sensor mark.

Shock test mode

  • Test mode is entered automatically when the cover is removed. The LED activates on shock activation and goes out upon shock restoral.
  • LED is functional only in test mode.
  • Test mode is active as long as the cover is removed.

Shock sensor sensitivity setting

An LED test mode (see above) is included to aide in setting sensitivity to desired level

  1. Mount sensor in intended location and tap mounting surface with desired level of activation impact
  2. Adjust potentiometer until correct sensitivity is obtained
The potentiometer adjusts shock sensitivity from minimum “Low” (CCW) to maximum “Hi” (CW). These setting are marked on the PCB. Image 002

In maximum sensitivity mode, the least amount of shock is required to activate a shock alarm. If the potentiometer is set all the way Low (CCW) the shock portion of the device is turned off and only the internal reed switch is active


To add the sensor to your panel and for detailed programming instructions, use the steps below and refer to the ClareOne Wireless Security and Smart Home Panel User Manual (DOC ID 1871).

Note: The Door Window Sensor with Shock has a 2-part addition process. You must add the door window sensor and the shock sensor to the ClareOne panel.

To add the door window sensor:

  1. Put the ClareOne panel in “add mode” and follow the displayed instructions for adding the sensor.
  2. Remove the battery tabs, and then trip the sensor using magnet or enter the ID number.
  3. Enter sensor information.

    Note: Loop locations:

    Shock – Loop 1

    Reed Switch – Loop 2

    Tamper – Loop 4

  4. Exit “add mode.”

To add the shock sensor:

  1. Open the sensor body, and then locate the tamper switch.
  2. Put the ClareOne panel in “add mode,” and then depress the tamper switch.

Testing and adjusting the sensor

Take the sensor and magnet to the desired mounting location, making sure to line up the magnet alignment marks with each other. Trip the sensor by pulling the magnet away from the sensor. Monitor the system after tripping the sensor.

Battery replacement

Note: If a low battery alarm occurs, replace the battery within 7 days.

  • The low battery detected LED flashes until the battery is replaced. The sensor sends a low battery signal to the ClareOne panel.
  • The CLR-C1-DWSHK requires (2) 3-VDC, lithium coin-cell batteries (Varta or Panasonic, Model CR2032). Both batteries should be replaced at the same time.
  1. Remove the sensor cover by pressing on the latch and pulling the cover off.
  2. Do not remove the circuit board, slide the old batteries out as shown.
  3. Slide the batteries out from under the circuit board and note the polarity.

  4. Insert new batteries, noting the polarity.
  5. Replace sensor cover.

CAUTION: Battery may explode if mistreated. Do not recharge, disassemble, or dispose of in fire.
