The I/O Linc - INSTEON Door / Window Sensor Kit will alert you when a door or window has been opened. The magnetic sensor triggers the I/O Linc when a door or window is opened. You can then use that “trigger” to turn on any INSTEON-controlled lights or appliances via the linking capability of the INSTEON protocol.

Basic Info

You could have a KeypadLInc LED light up when the back door opens or have your interior and exterior garage lights turn on when the garage door opens. Or, you could have the I/O Linc turn on all the lights inside your home or flash the outdoor lights to scare off an intruder if a breach occurs.

Of course, if you have the I/O Linc defined within your Indigo 6 System, then your options expand even further from the one ones listed above. For example, you can send yourself an email that the contact has been opened; check the status of the door window sensor on your iPhone; and on and on. This kit is useful for doors, windows, drawers, jewelry cabinets, sheds and anything else that opens; and is an easy-to-use solution for adding convenience and awareness to your home.

How It Works

The included magnet and sensor monitor whether or not something has been opened. The sensor triggers the included I/O Linc - INSTEON Low Voltage / Contact Closure Interface (1 In / 1 Out) when the magnet moves further than an inch away, such as when a door or window is opened. Link the I/O Linc to another INSTEON device or have it “trigger” actions from within Indigo, and you know that the movement of the magnetic sensor has occurred. The magnet and sensor contacts can be applied to almost any surface using the supplied self-adhesive tape, or can be they can be screwed down. The contacts are considered "normally closed", which means that the door, window, drawer, jewelry box or other item will be closed when the magnet and sensor are together. When the contacts are separated (i.e. when you open a door or window), a “trigger” is then sent to your I/O Linc as notification of a status change.
