  • Hidden Sensor - Invisible Assurance

    Peace of mind - that's what Hidden Door Sensor brings to your home. With Hidden Door Sensor and the INSTEON Hub, you will always know whether the front door has been opened or if you forgot to close the door to the garage. Hidden Door Sensor installs inside the door or door frame, reporting door activity wirelessly to your INSTEON home.










    Now You See It, Now You Don't

    Nothing makes your home smarter than adding sensors; but even our unobtrusive INSTEON Open/Close Sensor can be too large for certain decors and locations. That's why we've created the Hidden Door Sensor. Instead of mounting to the surface of your door, Hidden Door Sensor is installed inside the door frame or even the door itself. The result is a completely hidden sensor that stays out of the way, monitoring doors without the slightest visual impediment.








    Installation - Power Tool Time

    Using a 3/4" drill bit, simply drill a hole into your door frame along the hinge-side of your door. After cleaning out the hole of any wood shavings, simply slide Hidden Door Sensor in and secure it with the included screw. And in the event that there is a substantial gap between your door and the frame, we've included a spacer to ensure that your sensor will activate every time your door is opened or closed. Need a drill bit? Try the IRWIN SPEEDBOR Max Auger Bit, 3/4-Inch or the IRWIN SPEEDBOR Spade Bit, 3/4-Inch.









    Got Metal? - Equal Opportunity Installation

    Wood doors are easy; almost every home owner has the tools necessary to drill through a wooden door frame or door. But what if your door or door frame is made of metal? Hidden Door Sensor is just as easy to install in the door itself along the hinge-side of the door. If both your door and door frame are metal, we suggest using INSTEON Open/Close Sensor instead.








    Windows? - Supports Some Window Styles

    While Hidden Door Sensor works best with doors, it is possible to install with casement windows. Because the sash of most windows will be too narrow for Hidden Door Sensor, we suggest using the window frame exclusively. And if you have modern vinyl windows with sophisticated moisture barriers behind the frame, it's probably best to use INSTEON Open/Close Sensor instead. No one wants to trade a hidden sensor for a leaky window.



    Required Accessories
    For the best INSTEON network performance, be sure you have properly installed at least two Access Points or other dual-band products.

    Note: Open/Close Sensor does not transmit X10-compatible RF signals.

    Easily installed (at least in wooden door frames; haven't got a metal one to try). Functions properly and is supported on newest software (as of June 2014) on UDI's ISY series controllers. I gave four stars only because I don't know battery life, yet.

    Super product. I have several of these and they all work great. Way better than mounting magnetic sensors on the door and jam. Installation is fairly easy. A butterfly drill bit works fine for the hole. Be sure to center the drill on the door jam and be aware of any electrical wiring that might be behind it since the hole has to be fairly deep. Also be sure to drill nice and straight or you might drill through the wall board. Out of sight and work well. Battery life seems to be good so far. Only thing is I wish they would ping the current state a couple of times per day.

    Unlike my experience with the motion sensor, this device functions as advertised and offers a novel alternative to a visible sensor. Installation was straightforward and simple to accomplish.

    Easy to install, easy to link to Insteon responders, works reliably. However, the documentation states in several places that it can be used to turn on lights when the door is opened and NOT turn off when the door is closed. This is a critical feature and according to Insteon technical support it is not now available. Apparently, this is a software feature to be available sometime in the future, I hope! This is unacceptable for my purpose and I would not have bought them.

    easy to install and work wonderfully, except with HL2.. all events appear doubled. makes creating any event driven actions a mess.

    easy installation. unfortunately with houselinc 2 all events are shown in the log twice. makes it impossible to use in any but the simplest of programmed events (you don't want events to trigger twice).

    It would have been nice to know in advance that it is not compatible with the ISY 991. had to return it. No problem though.

    Smarthome response:According to UDI forums, version 4.1.0 recognizes the unit.

    Great product. Very easy to install and configure. My mother-in-law is becoming more forgetful. My wife worries that mom will wander from her bedroom when she comes to visit. I just installed one of these on the guest room door and we activate it we use Indigio software when she comes to visit so that door will triggerthe master bedroom table lamps when she opens her bedroom door. It's a little bit of a pain when she gets up to use the bathroom in the middle of the night but it provides my wife with peace of mind knowing that her mom isn't stumbling down the stairs in the middle of the night.
    Well hidden once installed--has a lot of neat uses.
