Part number:

ClareOne Door/Window Sensor, White (CLR-C1-DW-W)
ClareOne Door/Window Sensor, Brown (CLR-C1-DW-B)

Description

The ClareOne Door/Window Sensor is a magnetic sensor device designed to fit seamlessly alongside a door frame or window frame. When the door or window is opened, the magnetic contact is disrupted, and then the sensor transmits an alarm notification to the ClareOne panel.

Important safety instructions

Before you install this sensor, be sure to:

  • Read, keep, and follow all instructions.
  • Do not install near any heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other apparatus (including amplifiers) that produce heat.
  • Do not expose the device to water.
  • When there is a low battery, replace with a compatible lithium ion battery.

Installation

The door/window sensor can be installed using the provided adhesive or screws.

Mounting orientation

The sensor and magnet should be placed near the top of the door with the sensor attached to the unmoving part of the closure. For example, attach the main body of the sensor to the door frame, not the door. We recommend that the sensor is placed in the top corner of the opening side of the door, see Figure 1.

Figure 1: Sensor orientation

sensor orientation

The sensor and magnet each have a slightly engraved line. This line denotes where the sensors align to function properly. If the sensor and magnet, when together/closed, do not line up, the sensor will not report correctly. See Figure 2.

To install the door/window sensor:

  1. Select the desired position for the sensor and magnet.


    Notes

    • The sensor and magnet must be within 0.25 inches of each other on final installation. See Table 1, for different gap ranges on metallic and non-metallic mounting surfaces.
    • Verify that the sensor and magnet are aligned correctly. See Figure 2.
  2. Remove the sensor’s battery pull tab.
  3. Adhere the sensor to the wall using the provided screws or adhesive.
    Note: We recommend using the provided screws for installation. This method is more secure than using adhesive alone.

    Sensor screws

    1. Locate the bottom of the sensor (the slotted short end).
    2. Turn the sensor over, and then gently slide a fingernail/fingertip into the slot pushing the sensor’s back plate up and away from the sensor body.

    3. (Optional) Mark the screw hole locations, then using a power drill, drill holes and install the 2 provided wall anchors.
    4. Remove the adhesive film cover.

    5. Place the back plate against the door frame/window frame, making sure that the orientation is correct for the desired position.
      Note: Once the adhesive is secure, the sensor cannot be moved.
    6. Insert the first screw into the non-breakaway screw hole, and then use a screwdriver to partially secure the screw in the wall.
      Do not fully insert the scew until the second screw has secured the sensor's position.
    7. Insert a second screw into the breakaway screw hole, and then partially secure in the wall.

    8. Observe the sensor position. When satisfied with position, use a screwdriver to fully secure each screw in the wall.
    9. Press the front of the sensor against the base, until there is an audible snap.

          Sensor adhesive

          1. Select the desired position for the sensor.
          2. Peel one side of the adhesive tape, and then press the tape firmly against the sensor.

                  3. Peel the other side of the adhesive, and then press the magnet against the wall.
                • Add the sensor to the panel. See "Sensor Management," ClareOne User Guide (DOC ID 1871).
                • Once added, test the sensor. Look at the ClareOne panel, and then open the door/window. Notice that the added sensor displays faulted. Note: Testing all sensors with the alarm monitoring station is strongly advised.

                        Battery replacement

                        The ClareONE Door/Window Sensor requires a CR2032 battery. Once the battery is low, the panel displays a low battery icon next to the sensor in the devices list. The battery must be replaced within 7 days of the first low battery notification. If the battery is not replaced within 7 days, the sensor may not function properly.

                        WARNING: If an incompatible replacement battery is used, or the battery is installed incorrectly explosion or damages may occur.

                        AVERTISSEMENT: Si une batterie de remplacement incompatible est utilisée ou si la batterie est installée de manière incorrecte, une explosion ou des dommages peuvent survenir.

                        To replace the battery:

                        Note: Verify that the panel is not armed before changing the battery.

                        1. Locate the bottom of the sensor (the slotted short end).
                        2. Gently slide a fingernail/fingertip into the slot and pull the sensor cover out and away from the sensor’s base.

                        3. The sensor containing the battery and circuit board is no longer attached to the door/window.
                          Locate the tab holding the circuit board in the sensor.

                          dw - cb tab
                        4. Press and hold the tab away from the circuit board, and then turn the sensor over.
                          The circuit board comes free from the sensor shell.
                        5. Use a fingernail/fingertip to push the battery out of the casing, noting the polarity of the battery.

                          dw - cb - battery removal
                        6. Slide a new CR2032 battery into the battery casing, making sure that the polarity is correct.
                        7. Press the circuit board back into the sensor casing, sliding it under the clips, until secure. There will be an audible snap.
                        8. Press the sensor back onto the base.
                        9. Test the sensor.
