Casement windows

Can SS sensors be used on casement windows?  There doesn’t appear to be enough room for the sensor with the screen installed.  Can the sensor portion be placed on the glass?

Hi @pjh22!


Our Entry Sensors can be set up in any configuration, so long as the main sensor piece is within 2" of the smaller magnet piece when the window is closed, and further than 2" when the window is opened.


Our Help Center page here has a video that showcases a variety of different window types.


And yes, there's no functional issue if you want to place either the sensor or the magnet on the glass itself.

@davey_d​ Thanks for the quick response.  For my clarity, the sensor is the smaller of the two pieces, the one without the battery?  Thanks again,

@pjh122, the sensor is the larger piece, but yes, the one with the battery.


I also forgot to mention, if you have a tighter space, we do have a Slim Magnet available from our Support team. That might help!
