Recessed Door Sensors | Frontpoint Security

Recessed Door Sensor

Burglars can be smart. Outsmart them by using the Recessed Door Sensor from Frontpoint.

First line protection

The Recessed Door sensors protect the most important access points to your home — your home’s first floor doors. Covering these entry points helps protect you from break-ins and helps keep your family safer.

Out of sight

These door sensors are installed inside the doorframe, but don’t let their small size fool you. They pack quite a punch when it comes to protecting your home. The best part is, bad guys can’t see them. But if they try to open the door or break in, they’re in for a surprise.

Getting Started
Simple to Set Up

Place your Recessed Door Sensor inside the door or window frame. It's best to install one piece in the door and one piece in the frame. For these sensors, the door and frame must be wooden.

Tools required for installation: electric drill, 7/8" diameter drill bit, flat-head screwdriver.

This is the only Frontpoint equipment that requires tools for setup. Setup is still easy, if you're comfortable using an electric hand drill. We'll provide all the simple instructions, and can even walk you through it on the phone.
