Size of small screws that came with system?

I lost all of the small screws that came with my system(thrown away). Anyone know what size the small screws are?

Just a follow up from this morning's post.  I went to my neighborhood ACE Hardware store and found the "perfect" screw for mounting of the motion sensors.  I have installed them using #4, 1-1/4" length flat Phillips head screws.  The head of the screw is perfectly flush inside the sensor mounting plate posing no interference when removing/installing the sensor.  I also left the tape backing in place.  Hope this helps someone down the road.

1/2 inch long x 1/16 diameter.

Any idea where to buy these? Are they #0 screws 1/2 inch long? My web search comes up empty trying to find these.

Don't know the #, but most hardware stores/big box stores have the measurements on the bins, which may also have the # on the bin as well.  These screws are pretty tiny, they have a phillip's head - if you have a local hardware store, hopefully you have at least one screw saved, take with you, check their bins.  Or, call SS for the correct size and, not sure if they will be able to provide you the screws, but you can at least ask, and ask for the size (#).

t@simplisafe_admin​ they aren't free they are "pay shipping"  which is likely more expensive than hardware store.

I used everbilt #3x 1/2in flat head Phillips.

It was a perfect fit! You can find them in the wood screws section of Home Depot. They come in a small bag 8 count.

I am new to the forum.  Just installed our new system and would like to screw mount the motion sensors to the walls.  However the screws that came with the sensors are way to short to penetrate through the drywall and into the wood studs.  Checking some of the forum responses, I see references to screw sizes #3, #4, etc. all with 1/2" length.  Any recommendations on longer screw lengths that will work with the motion sensors?
