How it Works

Simply install a battery (included), adjust the settings (jumper) based on your application, link Open/Close Sensor to other device(s) on your INSTEON network, and then it is ready for mounting. The INSTEON Open/Close Sensor has been pre-configured (default setting) to turn on a light (or other INSTEON controlled device) when your door is opened (magnetic contact is open) and off when the door is closed (magnetic contact is closed). This default setting is great for doors, windows, garage doors, sheds or closets where you want the lights to turn on when the door is opened and you can be sure the lights are off when the door is closed. Open/Close Sensor's second setting allows for a more custom type of control: Turn on (or off) one set of lights or devices when the door is opened and turn on (or off) another set of devices when the door is closed. For example, this feature provides uses such as:

  • Have lights turn on when you open the door, but leave them on when you close it
  • Have lights turn on to full bright when you open the door, and dim them to 50% when the door is closed
  • Combine with the INSTEON Hub to receive SMS and email alerts when a door or window is open or closed
  • Plus many more uses

The INSTEON Open/Close Sensor also contains an input so you can wire standard security sensors directly in so you can monitor many doors / windows from a single Open/Close Sensor.
