A bulky home security system can be an eyesore. Adding to that stress is hard wire installation permanently altering the aesthetics of your room or window treatment. With its wireless connectivity and fully concealed platform, however, ION Security MICRA-D is a window security sensor that finally eliminates these pesky inconveniences.
Installing the product requires just three tools:
- 3/4" Forstener Bit
- 1/4" Wood Bit (for antenna insertion
Drilling a single hole about 3" down from the inside top corner of the window mainframe, you merely place and set the MICRA antenna & transmitter (in that order) within the cored opening before covering with the system's Surface Mount Magnet, ensuring the product is concealed. That's it!
From then on your fear of any burglars spotting your motion sensors and finding alternate and less-secure entryways into your home or commercial space can be forgotten, because this 3 step easy-to-install package is not only virtually invisible to the naked eye, but it uses a sophisticated wireless transmit that extends to 500 ft of any DSC wireless receiver - making it an ideal choice for installing in just about any corner of your home or office.
The ION Security MICRA-D sensor's battery-life is another one of it's convenient features, as its 3.0V Lithium Coin Cell Battery has an average life-span of about 5+ years, ensuring you and your family's safety will not be compromised by the vexing and easily forgettable task of constantly having to replace your battery.

Installed a bunch of these in my windows and sliding door and they work great. Easy to install and the alarm system recognized the code right away for quick programming. Definitely the way to go if you are looking for a concealed option which we wanted.
One minor issue I ran into after drilling the hole in vertical vinyl window framing...there is apparently "ribbing" between the inside and outside framing which for me prevented installing the micra-d. I needed to use a dremel and small grinding attachment to carefully grind away the ribbing and then the sensor fit in no problem. Just a little more work but it is a very clean install.
