Essential Info

Protect your home and family with a simple security system that monitors a single entry to your home. The Household Door/Window Alert System is a magnetic contact sensor system that will monitor any door or window within your house, notifying you instantly via audible and visual indicators if the entry is breached. Best of all, the Household Door/Window Alert System is easy to set up, with the sensor alerting the receiver wirelessly.

  • Household Alert® Sensor
  • Receiver

  • Instructions
  • More Info

    Mount the sensor on the door or window frame, with the magnet on the door or window itself. When the magnetic contact is broken, the sensor will send its wireless signal to the receiver, which will notify you instantly of the breach. With its range of 300 feet, you'll be able to place the receiver in any convenient location in your home. If you need to cover a distance further than 300 feet, use the Household Alert Wireless Repeater to extend the communication range between the Skylink wireless devices and ensure the security of your home.

    The included receiver will control up to four different sensors. Sold separately, you can add a Household Garage Door Alert Sensor or a Household Motion Alert Sensor for security, or a Household Water Alert Sensor for water leaks.

    When multiple sensors are installed, only the corresponding zone LED will flash, so there will be no confusion. In addition, you'll know which zone is being triggered by the number of beeps emitted in succession. The audible alert can be muted easily if desired.

    Easy installation. Works as described. I added this to a window to complete the 4 zones.
    RACHEL -- norristown, PA   9/6/2012
    Easy to set up with the directions and some attention. Work well, so far.
    Dean Gangstee -- rosamond, Ca.   1/27/2012
    Nice unit. I replaced the red LED's with superbright Blue, Green, Amber, and Red LEDs and placed the receiver near my TV. Now when watching TV whether at night or daytime the superbright Blue LED gets my attention to let me know that someone opened the front gate and is on the way to knock on the door. The UPS man often knocks like the Sheriff is at the door and causes me a near heart attack. Now I get advance warning that someone is coming in the yard. The different color LEDS will tell me which sensor is activated once I get additional sensors. I recommend that the mfg. add a model with superbright LED's and I further recommend the mfg add a more outdoor rugged transmitter for yard gates as I don't know how long the plastic will last out doors.
    WILLIAM E. -- seaford, DE   8/26/2011
    Great product. Works perfectly. You definitely need to read the instructions, particularly about having the gray tab side of the magnet next to the transmitter. We couldn't be happier with our unit. It was the perfect solution to a nagging problem. (We use it to tell us when the back door is open. Our kids have a tendency to open it, but not close it properly. Now we know when they leave the house ... and when they fail to actually close the door properly.)
    SEDALIA -- pleasant garden, NC   8/1/2011
    Very pleased with how well product works, using in my daughter apartment.
    COLLEEN -- del mar, CA   6/13/2011
    LOUIE -- eau claire, WI   5/26/2011
    I think there great. Doing just what I needed them to do.
    RALPH -- charlottesville, VA   8/12/2010
    Easy to install. Works great. Reasonably priced.
    johnnyb -- houston, TX   5/27/2010
    This is not an alarm system, so don't expect to be blown out of bed when it's tripped. But it's great as a relatively unobtrusive alert system, and it works quite well as that. I have sensors on each of my gates so that I am alerted by beeps when the yard guy comes, or when the meter reader is in the yard. I can tell which gate is open -- 1 beep for 1, 2 beeps for 2, etc. It also reassures me with a green light that all the gates are closed before I let the dogs out. I don't expect it to warn me of an intruder exactly, but it is definitely nice to have a second set of eyes on the perimeter, as it were. The battery life in the sensors is running 2-3 months with quality CR2032's. It seems to have a range of about 50 feet. The sensors are also fairly easy to hack. Desolder the internal reed switch and you have a contact closure input... wire it up to a 3v DC supply and you can skip the batteries. All in all... hey, it's not bad.
    Bill -- washington, MO   5/11/2010
    I just set up one sensors and the base station and it works great. I just ordered three more sensors. Understanding the zones is a little difficult but overall a great product. Worth the money if you want to make sure your young ones don't leave the house without you knowing about it.
    THOMAS -- west monroe, LA   1/5/2010
    Very weak product. Cheaply made and very low db alarm. I would not recommend for anyone that lives in anything besides an apartment or small trailer.
    SLOANE -- knoxville, TN   6/14/2009
    very undependable highly disappointed
    THOMAS -- palo alto, CA   3/9/2009
    I bought this to have a second base station to beep in a second room when my motion detector was triggered. It works perfectly so that I can have two base stations in different rooms alert me to motion from a single motion detector. This was on sale so cheaper than buying just the base station. After a few weeks, the whole system works perfectly and was simple to install and understand the detailed instructions.
    FRANK -- tampa, FL   3/9/2009
    Great product for the cost.
    MARIO -- little neck, NY   3/9/2009
    Product is simple to setup and install. It also works well. Green power light on receiver does not turn on. Reciver is smaller than what I had expected.
    CRAIG -- ojai, CA   2/13/2009
    A bad product. The alarm is so annoying, I had to turn the system off. Can't it be made with a more pleasing single "ding"?
    FREDRICK -- menomonee falls, WI   10/26/2008
    It works as adverised. It is cheap but it functions. It does have rare times that it does not alarm.
    FRANK -- raleigh, NC   10/3/2008
    Works as described, although it didn't seem to work well on an alluminum door frame. I really need a transmitter with connections to accept an external magnetic switch.
    PETER -- levittown, NY   8/18/2008
    Installation was simple and it is easy to use. Occasionally alert does not activate when door is opened. Wish that "high" volume was louder.
    JOAN -- st. louis, MO   5/10/2008
    It works for what we need it to.
