Home and Business Security Alarm – Door and Window Contacts

Your doors and windows are the primary way that an intruder will try and enter your home or business. The 2GIG DW10 is a wireless sensor that has been designed to be functional as well as unobtrusive. The sensor blends in well with existing decor. This device can be used for a new installation as well as with existing magnetic contacts.




The Thin Door/Window Contact (2GIGDW10345) is designed for use on doors, windows, and other objects that open and close. It communicates with the control panel using the 345 MHz frequency. When the magnet (which is mounted near the sensor) moves away from or closer to the door contact’s sensor, signals are transmitted to the control panel. The door contact also has an external input that accepts connections from Normally Closed (NC) dry contact devices. For added protection, it is also equipped with a cover tamper.

For double door installation, mount the sensor on the least used door and the magnet on the most used door. Do Not Expose Sensors to Moisture or Extreme Temperature. It is best to mount sensors in a dry location where the operating temperature do not exceed 32° to 120° F (0° to 49° C). Keep Sensors and Magnets Away from Metal/Metallic Surfaces. To keep sensors and magnets away from metal or metallic surfaces (for example, foil wallpaper), it is recommended that you use spacers (not included). You should also avoid mounting sensors in areas where there is a large quantity of metal or electrical wiring (for example, near a furnace or in a utility room). Align Magnet with Sensor. Make sure the alignment arrow on the magnet points to the center alignment mark on the sensor

2GIG DW10 Description

Box Contents

Verify that the package includes the following: · 1–Thin Door/Window Contact · 1–Rare Earth Magnet · 2–Phillips Head Screws · 2–Lithium Coin Batteries · 2–Adhesive Foam Tape · 1–12 in (30 cm) Wire Lead

Mounting Guidelines

Use these guidelines when installing the door contact for internal switch usage: · Mount Sensors within 100 ft (30 m) of the Control Panel. Although the transmitter may have a range of 350 ft (106.7 m) open air, the sensor location can have a significant effect on range. In open/unobstructed situations, the transmitter range may be greater. In adverse wireless conditions, changing the sensor orientation may lead to improved range. · Mount Sensors at Least 4.7 in (12 cm) Above the Floor. Placing sensors slightly above floor level helps to minimize possible sensor damage. · Single vs. Double Door Installation. For single door installation, mount the sensor on the door frame and the door.

To mount the door contact: 1 at the top of the sensor, press down on the clip to unlock the sensor’s back plate. Then, gently pull down on the back plate to remove it. 2 On the back plate drill through top and bottom mounting holes if needed (see Figure 2 Thin Door/Window Contact–Back plate and Battery Compartment). 3 Holding the back plate location, place the bottom mounting hole as follows: · Single Door Installation. At the desired location on the door frame. · Double Door Installation. At the desired location on the least used door.

2GIG Mounting Instructions

IMPORTANT: To minimize the risk of potential sensor damage, always mount the sensor at a minimum height of 4.7 in (12 cm) from the floor.

Using the two (2) Phillip Head Screws (provided), secure the back plate the door (or door frame). Ensure that the alignment arrow on the magnet is lined up with the middle mark on the sensor (see Figure 1 Thin Door/ Window Contact–Sensor and Magnet). Use the adhesive (provided) to secure the magnet as follows: · Single Door Installation. On the door. · Double Door Installation. On the most used door. Away from the sensor.

If you are using an external input wire, do the following:

7a Thread the external input wire through the base.

7b Insert the two pin connector into the external input wire jack on the (see Part C in Figure 2 Thin Door/Window Contact–Back plate and Battery Compartment) cover. Replace the sensor back plate. If applicable, ensure that the external input wire is connected to the NC dry contact device. See the Control Panel’s Installation & Programming Guide.

Inserting and Replacing the Batteries

To insert or replace the batteries: 1 at the top of the sensor, push down the clip to unlock the sensor’s back plate. Then, gently pull down on the back plate to remove it. 2 Place a small flathead screwdriver in the slot between the metal clip and battery (see Part F in Figure 2 Thin Door/Window Contact–Back plate and Battery Compartment). 3 Holding down the raised plastic edge in the battery compartment gently twist the screwdriver to pop out each battery.

IMPORTANT: Always dispose and/or recycle used batteries in

Insert the replacement batteries in the compartment. The plus (+) sign of both batteries should be facing up and the minus () side facing down. Can lead to heat generation, rupture, leakage, explosion, fire, or other injury, or damage. Do not insert the battery into the compartment in the wrong direction. Always replace the battery with the same or equivalent type (see Specifications on page 2). Never recharge or disassemble the battery. Never place the battery in fire or water. Always keep batteries away from small children. If batteries are swallowed, promptly see a doctor.
