Multipurpose Sensor Input

$29.99

The Multipurpose Sensor Input by NotiFYI uses a magnetic sensor to send a custom alert to your smart device when an opening—like a door or window—is accessed. It can also be wired to any output on a sensing device to send you a custom alert when the device's sensor is triggered. The Multipurpose Sensor Input requires setup with the NotiFYI Hub.

All NotiFYI accessories work within a range of 3,500 square feet of the NotiFYI Hub in standard construction and within 500 feet line of sight.

HOW TO INSTALL

General Installation

Mount the Transmitter

1. Push the button on the end of your Multipurpose Sensor Input and separate the two halves. See Figure 1.

2. Hold the sensor in place with the magnetic reed switch closest to where the magnet will be mounted. See Figure 2. Ensure the transmitter and the magnet will be no more than 1/2” (1.3cm) apart.

3. Place the supplied #4 screw into the mounting hole and secure the sensor to the surface.

4. Install the 3.0V lithium battery (provided).

5. Snap the sensor cover back onto the base.

Mount the Magnet

The magnets should be placed in one of two configurations. See Figure 3.

1. Push the supplied magnet into the magnet cover.

2. Hold the magnet base on the door (or another object) closest to the magnetic reed switch, no more than 1/2” (1.3cm) from the sensor.

3. Use the provided #4 screws to mount the base. See Figure 4.

4. Snap the cover onto the base.

5. A notification will be sent when the sensor and the magnet separate.

Commercial Installation

1. Push the supplied magnet into the magnet cover.

2. Place and hold the magnet cover directly on the door closest to the magnetic reed switch, no more than 1/2” (1.3cm) apart from the transmitter.

3. Use the provided #4 screws to mount the cover. See Figure 5.

Mount the Transmitter

NotiFYI recommends using 18 or 22 AWG un-shielded wire.

1. Push the button on the end of the Multipurpose Sensor Input and separate the two halves. See Figure 1.

2. Use a flat head screwdriver to loosen the two screws on the external contact terminal block.

3. Insert external contact wiring into the sensor terminal block and re-tighten the screws. See Figure 6.

4. Connect the other ends of the wires to the external contact as either normally open (N/O) or normally closed (N/C) without an end-of-line resistor.

5. A notification will be sent when the external contact sends the trigger.
