The 2GIG-DW20R-345 is a recessed wireless door and window contact that disappears in the shadow of the door or window frame, leaving intruders unaware of the protected entrance. This small frame sensor is so sensitive, that it can detect even the softest opening and closing of the entrances, making it a great option for enforcing curfew as well. The 2GIG-DW20R-345 communicates wirelessly with the control panel via the 345 MHz frequency. Powered by a replaceable three-volt lithium battery, the DW20R-345 sensor will last around five years with normal use.
Mount Sensors within 100 ft (30 m) of the Control Panel: Although the transmitter may have a range of 450 ft (137.2 m) in open/unobstructed situations, the environment at the installation site can have a significant effect on transmitter range.
Install the Recessed Sensor in the Door or Door Frame: It is important to select the proper placement of the recessed sensor/transmitter and magnet. The sensor comes with two different tops, however, the screw mount is recommended for securing the sensor to a door frame. The magnet does not have a second top with a flange to screw it into place so you must be extremely careful to ensure that the magnet is tightly in place upon installation.
Use Screw Mount to Secure the Sensor to a Door Frame: The magnet does not have a second top with a flange to screw it into place so you must be extremely careful to ensure that the magnet is tightly in place upon installation. The door contact can be mounted in either the door jamb or door frame. The best practice is to mount it in the door frame.
