Wireless Outdoor Gate/Door Sensor

Monitor the open/closed status of an outdoor gate or door with the 2GIG Wireless Outdoor Contact Sensor. This wireless contact sensor sends notifications to your alarm panel when a door, gate, or window is opened/closed. It can enable two zones, one with an internal magnetic reed switch and another with a normally-closed circuit that can have external devices wired to it. The wireless contact sensor works with GC2 and GC3 security panels (sold separately) and can be painted to match the color of the mounting surface.

  • Notifies your alarm panel when a door, gate or window is opened or closed
  • Can operate with a wide magnet gap (maximum of 2 inches) to enable sensing for various applications from yard gates to detached garages
  • IP56 rated for extreme weather conditions
  • Compatible with 2GIG, Honeywell, and 345 MHz wireless alarm systems
  • Can be painted to match its mounting surface
  • 2 lithium AA batteries included

How It Works

The 2GIG Wireless Outdoor Contact Sensor consists of two components (sensor and magnet). The wireless contact sensor mounts on the door/gate itself, and the magnet mounts on the frame. When the two are separated, the sensor reports an open status condition to your control panel, and vice versa. Additionally, the outdoor contact sensor has an external input that accepts connections from Normally Closed (NC) dry contact devices. And for added protection, it's equipped with a cover and wall tamper.


  • Outdoor Sensor
  • Magnet
  • (2) Lithium AA Batteries
  • Mounting Screws


  • Requires connection to a compatible control panel/receiver (2GIG, Honeywell, 345MHz compatible, sold separately).
  • For remote monitoring using a smartphone, requires the app (subscription required).
  • Mount the Sensor within 100 feet (30 m) of the control panel for optimal performance.
  • The preferred mounting distance between the Sensor and Magnet is 1/4 inch. The maximum gap is 2 inches.
