I’m not home to take a picture but I went the opposite direction. Used one of those sticky easy removable strip stickers for sensor on door. Then took magnet out of case and glued to door as a test. Has been that way for over a week and working.
I’ll post an update with a picture when I get home.
Yeah, those little things are really nice, but at that price it’s hard for me to jump in and replace what I have. I know battery life is superb, but the price and easy pickup at Lowes for the Iris sensors is just too convenient for me.
I tend to put the sensor on the door since its the large flat area. Then the magnet I hold up and figure out where it gets close. It isnt like aiming a laser here. Getting close is plenty enough. There’s easily 3/4" play in a sphere around the side of the sensor. So getting close works for me
I don’t have a link but what I have done on a couple doors is use rare earth magnets that I purchased at a local Michaels craft store. They are about the size and thickness of a dime and very strong. I thick them on with 3M automotive trim tape. They’ve never fallen off and are far less conspicuous.
I did the same thing. I noticed some of my switches used the super strong neodymium magnet in them like your picture and some used the cheapo much larger and weaker magnets. You can easily paint over the magnets and it blends in very well. I did the same thing for the mailbox sensor magnet because it was out of the way on the inside wall of the mailbox so it wouldn’t get knocked off by accident when delivering or retrieving the mail.
Yeah, the sellers are buying cheap Chinese standard crap that only works with windows and doors that close evenly. STUPID! Most doors have molding (and many houses have window molding that is also recessed). The magnets in pairing are too thin. Go figure. They can’t.
