- First, peel off the adhesive backing on the magnet and the transmitter pieces.
- Identify the small arrows found on both the magnet and the transmitter. These arrows should point toward each other when installed on your door or window of choice.
- Installation: The goal is to position the two pieces as close to each other as possible without any physical interference while the door or window is opening or closing. The maximum distance between the two pieces when the window or door is closed should be no more than ½ inch.
Doors and windows can vary in shape, size and configuration so your installation may be unique. You should install the larger piece (transmitter) on the inside of the door jam or window frame, and the smaller piece (magnet) on the actual door or window. This configuration works especially well for doors and windows that open inward; therefore, the reverse may work better for doors and windows opening outward.
Note: MyPlace sensors should not be installed outdoors. Adverse weather conditions can harm the sensitive electronics in the sensor.
