Door/Window (60-362) and Long Life Door/Window (60-641)
sensors can be installed on doors, windows, or other devices that
open and close. Under normal use, door and window sensors
transmit open (TRIP) and close (RESTORE) signals to the panel
each time a magnet connects with or breaks away from a sensor.
Also, each sensor sends a supervisory signal to a panel every 64
minutes. The door/window sensor is powered by a 3.6V lithium
The Long Life Door/Window Sensor battery cannot be
replaced. If you experience a low-battery condition, you
must return the sensor to GE Security for a full
• Mount sensors within 100 feet of the panel.
• For door mounts, mount the sensor to a door frame and the
magnet to the door.
• Mount sensors with screws; do not mount with double-sided
tape or other adhesive products.
• To avoid damage, mount each sensor a minimum of five
inches above the floor.
• For Long Life sensors, do not remove the jumper from the
circuit board. The sensor cannot operate without the jumper.
• Use spacers (not included) to keep sensors and/or magnets
away from metal surfaces such as flashing or foil wallpaper.
Door/Window Sensor Spacers:
White: Part No. 60-189
Brown: Part No. 60-191
White: Part No. 60-188
Brown: Part No. 60-190
• Remove internal reed switches not in use.
• Do not mount sensors near areas with excessive metal or
electrical wiring, or near areas with excessive moisture.
• Do not mount sensors where temperatures exceed 120°F.
• #6 Flathead screws
• Phillips and Slotted screwdrivers
• Wire cutter/stripper
• Sensor/magnet spacers (not included)
You must be free of static electricity while
handling electronic components. Touch a bare
metal surface before touching the circuit board.
Decide on a horizontal or vertical mount. Next, locate the
alignment marks on the mounting surface (see Figure 1).
The marks indicate reed switch locations. Remove unused
reed switches (Step 4).
Door/Window & Long Life Door/Window Sensors
Locating Sensor Alignment Marks
Remove sensor cover.
Remove the circuit board from the sensor base. Pull back on
the plastic tab and lift the battery to release the circuit board.
Remove unused reed switches. Clip the leads as close to the
board as possible (see Figure 2).
