While setting up your Strips sensor ensuring the correct placement is key to allow proper open/close reporting. Take a look at the following PDF file with mounting guidelines for Strips Guard:

MOUNTING GUIDELINES DOCUMENT (STRIPS GUARD)

To sum up:

  • You’ll need at least a 3mm gap to fit Strips
  • 3mm-5mm between Strips and magnet is recommended
  • The magnet should not be placed more than 10mm away from the edge of Strips
  • Strips can be used in different kinds of windows & doors: double doors, sliding up windows
  • Metal affects the range of the Strips therefore we do not recommend using Strips on a metal frame
  • The two tapes that come with the Strips can be used for testing placement
  • To un-mount Strips, use dental floss
