The weather-resistant GE Choice Alert Wireless Alarm System Window/Door Sensor provides a layer of security for any door or window inside or outside your home, including gates, cabinets, refrigerators, sheds and more. The two-piece magnetic design is easy to install and requires no wiring. The sensor transmits a wireless alert to the Choice Alert Wireless Control Center whenever a door or window is opened or closed. An added bonus, the sensor is powered by a single lithium battery that provides up to 24 months of protection before it needs to be replaced. Installing the sensor couldn't be any easier. Using the included double-sided tape or screws and mounting plate, you can install the sensor on almost any door (interior or exterior), gate, or window within minutes. There's no wiring involved--the sensor wirelessly transmits alerts to the Choice Alert Wireless Control Center within a range of 150 feet. The Choice Alert Window/Door Sensor can be paired with any of the Wireless Control Center's four zones in just a matter of seconds. Zones One through Three provide alarm protection, while Zone Four is a dedicated alert zone that generates a visual alert along with a continuous beeping alert to discreetly warn you that the zone has been compromised.

  • Innovative two-piece magnetic device alerts you when a window or door is opened

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Still Somewhat Undecided For years I paid $47 monthly for a monitored security system, after retiring from work I decided to cancel the subscription but still wanted something to alert me to any doors or window that were opened. In theory this is exactly what I needed, however, I did not find it to be the easy fix everyone seems to think it is..I had a few problems. #1 I bought the Control Center and what I thought was additional window/door sensors (they were not) I took the extras back only to find they did not carry this one..the one I needed. I had to order more online. #2 I live in an older house and my doors and facings all have curved moldings making it hard if not impossible to line the sensor and the magnet up without having to cut into my woodwork OR modify one in a manner that is not attractive especially for a main entry door. #3 My entry door is metal..they recommend mounting the sensor to a wood facing if the door is metal..this door is going to be such a problem (metal and alignment) I may have to mount to my storm door. #4 While 2 of my units programmed without issue to my Control Center, I have not been able to get the 3rd unit to work even after several times of removing and reassigning it to a zone on the Control Center. Overall I am pleased with the performance of the product. The Control Center is compact as are the sensors and they look nice. I am not crazy about the notification "chime" calling it a chime is stretching it but it makes a loud sound that can be heard from other rooms in the house and that is what I wanted (don't expect it to sound like a doorbell). I found assigning the units before mounting them to be the easiest for me (this was after I learned that they are not very forgiving of anything less than a near perfect alignment). Buy extra double sided mounting will more than likely need it. If I had it to do over..I would probably just go with individual units that do not tie into a Control Center (live and learn) but I had already ordered items online (including the key fob), bought and took back items, other words, I was too far in to turn back. Make sure all you need is easily available, look at the levelness of your door as it relates to your door facings and be prepared for a little frustration but for what you appears to be a pretty good system.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great deal easy setup Easy set up great price does exactly what it should do. July 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works as advertised We use these and other devices to monitor access to our home and yard. The two parts of the window/door sensor must be within 1/2 an inch of each other when the door/window is closed or the response is unreliable. 1/2-inch or closer and it works every time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Simple, but works great Door sensor is easy to mount and works straight out of the box. Easy to use. May 20, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by This product is relatively easy to install and use. While the sensors are easy to install and use, they are somewhat susceptible to false alarm notices because of heating and cooling of surfaces to which they are attached (like metal doors). Alignment can be a bit tricky to maintain. Battery life is as advertised (2 years or so). The sensors are a bit difficult to open for battery replacement. September 24, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent These are easy to use. Not hard to install. I have not changed the batteries in them why they are mounted so we will see how the goes. February 28, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Save your money. We had 3 door sensor installed. The light on the controller blinked constantly after the door was used. Had to reopen and close the door often just to get the red light from blinking. Our home is less than 1200 sq feet so distance wasn't an issue. Just spend your money on the motion sensors for your home. They work great. May 31, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by To expensive for what you get. Battery weak in brand new sensor,now I have to make a special trip to store to exchange it. June 5, 2012
