How do I attach to a casement window

I have casement windows, also doors where the frame is very close to the edge, so it is not possible to have the two sensor parts align evenly.  How do I attach?  The larger sensor can't be flush with the smaller part.

  • Hello Stephen,

     

    Regarding the casement windows, while you can set contacts up to monitor the window being open/closed it is usually unnecessary as the window would not be vulnerable to being pried open. With casement windows, we typically recommend using Glassbreak (sound) sensors or vibration sensors.

     

    In general, the two portions of the sensor do not need to be exactly flush. Since the small portion is just a cylindrical magnet, you can rotate it around its axis. You still want to remain within 1/4 inch of the larger portion. I typically recommend that the two portions overlap with each-other at least half their height.

     

    Hope this helps!

  • I had a similar situation in my basement with the 5 windows on the three different sides.  In the end, I installed two glassbreak detectors, one on the west vertical support beam and the other on the east vertical support beam.  I also have two large dogs that are in close proximity to the glassbreaks and they have not set them off yet.
