Door and window sensors are more useful than you think
Home security systems have multiple layers of devices that work together to keep your home safe. Door and window sensors are the mainstays of a good home security system, as most burglars try to gain entry through doors and windows. If the sensor is triggered, it will send a signal to the security system hub via RF, Zigbee, or WiFi. Ebelong wireless self-powered door and window sensors that communicate using RF use no battery and have a longer life than traditional sensors.
How do door and window sensors work?
– When the security system is armed, the sensor communicates with the central hub or control panel to signal that the doors and windows are secure. If the door or window is open, the button on the sensor is pressed, which the control panel interprets as a security breach. Depending on the type of system, there may be an audible alarm, a central call to the police station, or a notification to a connected smartphone.
Audible alarms can be a good option for people who live in busy areas or apartment buildings where an alarm might draw the attention of others. Alarm systems are the most effective home security systems in areas with high crime rates. A system that alerts a smartphone is best for people who live in relatively safe areas and like to monitor their own systems.
Ebelong PIR sensor can be used as a door and window sensor. It can detect if doors and windows are open or closed, notice movement, and even tell if it’s been tampered with through its built-in sensors.
Tip: Ebeling doorbell & switches are designed to be waterproof and can be used both outdoors and indoors. Indoor sensors should not be installed outdoors as they lack water protection and fail from the elements.
Other uses for door and window sensors
Door and window sensors are versatile and can be moved to other locations if you move or decide that the sensor is more useful elsewhere.
In fact, wireless door sensors can be used for other purposes besides monitoring entry points:
Keep kids away from medicine cabinets
Keep supper away from the kitchen
like a routine on a smart speaker
Turn on the lights when you open the door
