What does the Yale Door/Window Contact do?
This battery operated, magnetic door or window contact from Yale is wireless and easy to pair with your Yale Smart Home Alarm System and Yale Easy Fit Alarm System. This allows you to extend your system to tailor it to your individual needs. When put in place and set, if the window or door is opened and the magnetic contacts are separated, radio signals are sent to your Yale Home Alarm System and a siren will be triggered. If you are using the Yale Smart Home Alarm System, you will receive a notification on your smartphone or tablet when you are away from the house to tell you the alarm has been set off.

How easy is it to fit the Yale Door/Window Contact?
The Yale Door/Window Contact can be either screw mounted or fixed in place by an adhesive sticker. Place the device so when the door or window is opened the contacts are separated. Program your door/window contact before installation and test afterwards.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not compatible with uPVC windows I bought this for all doors and windows on the ground floor. It only worked on the front door. My windows and garden door are uPVC. The device need to be placed on a flat area, pvc windows have rounded borders. Avoid buying this for something other than a flat wood door.

I had installed 'Door/Window Contacts' in my house, but now I am moving to a different house and wish to take it with me and install it there. Where can I buy more of the double sided tape which are cut to shape and size for Yale 'Door/Window Contacts'?
