The 2GIG-DW10E-345 wireless, eSeries encrypted, alarm contact is designed to be installed on doors, windows, jewelry boxes, and many other objects that open and close. This thin door/window contact sends alarm signals to the 2GIG GC2e and GC3e control panels, when a magnet mounted near the sensor is moved away from or closer to the sensor's transmitter. The DW10E-345 sensor is also equipped with cover tamper for additional security.
The DW10E-345 communicates with the control panel using the 345 MHz frequency. When the magnet (which is mounted near the sensor) moves away from or closer to the door contact's sensor, signals are transmitted to the control panel. The door contact also has an external input that accepts connections from normally-closed (NC) dry contact devices.
Mount Sensors within 100 ft (30 m) of the Control Panel: Although the transmitter may have a range of 350 ft (106.7 m) open air, the sensor location can have a significant effect on range. In open/unobstructed situations, the transmitter range may be greater. In adverse wireless conditions, changing the sensor orientation may lead to improved range.
Mount Sensors at Least 4.7 in (12 cm) Above the Floor: Placing sensors slightly above floor level helps to minimize possible sensor damage.
Single vs. Double Door Installation: For single?door installation, mount the sensor on the door frame and the magnet on the door. For double?door installation, mount the sensor on the least?used door and the magnet on the most?used door.
Do Not Expose Sensors to Moisture or Extreme Temperature: It is best to mount sensors in a dry location where the operating temperature do not exceed 32° to 120°F (0° to 49°C).
Keep Sensors and Magnets Away from Metal/Metallic Surfaces: To keep sensors and magnets away from metal or metallic surfaces (for example, foil wallpaper), it is recommended that you use spacers (not included). You should also avoid mounting sensors in areas where there is a large quantity of metal or electrical wiring (for example, near a furnace or in a utility room).
Align Magnet with Sensor: Make sure the alignment arrow on the magnet points to the center alignment mark on the sensor.
