Our Recessed Door Sensors work like standard Door and Window Sensors, but can be installed inside the door frame. The difference: they're hidden from view.

  • Setup and Use

    The Recessed Door Sensor adds security to any opening, but the sensor may be concealed for aesthetic reasons. It provides the same high quality of intrusion alert as our standard Door and Window Sensors.

    Place your Recessed Door Sensor inside the door or window frame. It's best to install it in the top of the door frame (the header), and not in the moving part of the door. For these sensors, the door and frame must be wooden.

    This is the only FrontPoint component 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.

We chose FrontPoint because it was the least expensive way that we could find to get what we wanted from a security system. We liked the system so much I even convinced my boss to get Front Point at his house and he loves it too.

You can set up customizable alarm pin numbers for EACH person that has access to your house — you can disable any of these codes without interrupting your own, or without having to redistribute access to other people.
