INSTEON Hidden Door Sensor

MSRP: $34.99

The new Hidden Door Sensor is the smallest INSTEON sensor yet, so small that it is actually installed inside of your door or door frame. The sleek sensor is just over 3” long and less than ¾” in diameter, making its addition to your door décor almost invisible. As a matter of fact, all you’ll see once the sensor is installed is the small white plunger that rests in the door hinge side of your door. Its small size doesn’t mean it’s small on quality; we’ve tested Hidden Door Sensor with over 130,000 door openings, ensuring the sensor will last reliably for years to come.
