Are there any security systems that are centrally monitored that could use these?

Do you know the dimensions of the magnet part? Trying to figure out if it'll fit on my double hung window sill.

I ordered a couple earlier this week, waiting for it to arrive too.

5/6" x 7/16" x 1-5/16" (as measured)

These sensors work very well with Samsung Smartthings using custom DH, small profile, reports remaining battery % and temperature. Uses (1) CR2032 3V Lithium button cell. The included battery may not be 100%, no biggie, mine was 67% when I paired it and has 67% for a few months now. These sensors are a good buy.

These work well with my Vera Plus.

are you telling me that you couldn't figure it out with this picture (attached if working), LOL?

btw, you could remove the bar magnet from its casing to shave off 1/16" or more around each side

for most of these kinds of sensors, you can use a standard cylinder magnet like used with normal reed switch alarm sensors. You can drill a hole and slip them in the hole, if you have tight space requirements. they come in a variety of sizes - any alarm parts store sells them.

Yeah, that pic was helpful, it's about that much of a coin.

I got my sensors yesterday and sure enough, had to take the magnet bar out of the case to make it fit! Time to buy another 15

I'm going to see if I can daisy chain some magnetic switches without making it ghetto. then again, it might be cost/time effective to just buy more.
