Description

The CLR-C1-MDW Mini Door Window Sensor is a supervised sensor that detects the opening and closing of doors or windows. The sensor and magnet are mounted using screws (included) or double-sided adhesive tape (included). When activated, the sensor transmits an open (trip) or close (restore) signal to the 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.

Installation Guidelines

Follow the provided installation guidelines.

  • Mounting the sensor on metal can affect the transmitting range and magnet gap performance. Therefore, test the sensor from the desired location using the installer sensor test, before permanently mounting it.
  • Mount the sensor within 50 ft. of the panel.
  • Mount the sensor on the frame, and the magnet on the door, window or drawer. If mounting on double doors, mount the sensor on the least used door and the magnet on the other door.

  • Mount sensors at least 5 inches above the floor to avoid damaging them.
  • The sensors can be mounted to either wood or metallic surfaces.
  • The magnet should be mounted within 5/8” (15.88 mm) of the sensor. Desired operation should be checked before permanent installation.
  • After mounting the sensor, retest the sensor using the procedure in the section “Testing the Sensor”.

Programming

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

Testing the Sensor

Verify that the sensor is working properly.

To test the sensor:

  1. Set the panel to the sensor test mode.
  2. Take the sensor and magnet to the desired mounting location, making sure to line up their alignment marks with each other. Trip the sensor by pulling the magnet away from the sensor.
  3. Monitor the system after tripping the sensor. Refer to the ClareOne Wireless Security and Smart Home Panel User Manual (DOC ID 1871) for specific test information.
    Note: If a low battery alarm occurs, replace the battery within 7 days.

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

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 a maximum of 3/8”.

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. Attach the sensor to the base.
  3. Mount the magnet into the desired location using the supplied screw and lock washer, making sure the alignment mark lines up with the sensor mark.

Double-Sided Tape

  1. Before applying double-sided tape, ensure that the desired location is a smooth, clean and dry surface.

    Note:
    When applying the double-sided tape, evenly apply pressure to ensure a good surface contact.
  2. Apply double-sided tape to the bottom of the sensor and the magnet. Mount the sensor and magnet at the desired locations, ensuring the alignment marks line up with each other.

    For Additional Tamper Security

    1. Punch out the tamper cover on the bottom of the sensor, and using the small screw secure it to the mounting location, when the sensor is removed “tampered” the tab remains providing a tamper condition.
