I’m having a problem with mounting the Multi’s on my external doors. Not sure if it’s building codes or that I live where we get snow, the inside of my external doors are not flush so I can’t mount the multi’s properly. If i took the magnet out of the non brains side of the Multi it would work because I could recess them a bit into the jam and the door could swing pass the magnet without being blocked. Instead of butchering the Multi I thought best to check and see if I could use another type of magnet. maybe something at “The Source” (Radio Shack in the US), home depot, walmart.? Can I strip the magnets out of the something I already own, I have lots of computer bits around?
I have tried mounting the Multi on the hing side of the door and the magnet on the jam and that sort of works. I do get the OPEN trigger but the door has to be almost open before the contact is triggered. If I swing the door open to hard the brains side of the Multi hits the jam. It works but not the best solution.
I’ve tried using just the Brains side of the Multi and setting it as a garage door but that did not give a consistent, reliable trigger when the door was opened.
