Entry Sensor "Open" chime over and over

I recently decided to open the windows and air out the house with SS "OFF".  SS keeps "beeping" about the sensors being open, over and over.  Seems a little silly to me.  Is this normal behavior?  It seems to slow down after a long while.  I would think that one beep would be sufficient.  I have not tried anything like rebooting, etc.  I do not have the fancy monitoring option.

Hi walt.northrup,

Sounds to me like you have the window open just enough that the sensor can still pick up the magnet - right around the 2-inch range. So the little tiny reed switch inside the sensor is wavering around between the open and closed positions. Is it possible to open your window even wider?

Could be, but I don't think so.  It does stop beeping after a while, but it's annoying.  Thanks for the response.
