This is the GE Interlogix DesignLine Garage Door Sensor. The Garage Door Sensor enables you to monitor the opening of your garage door. Once the garage door opens to a35 degree angle, the sensor will go into an alrm condition turning on the siren and calling the central monitoring station. Under normal use, the sensor transmits open (trip) and close (restore). To the panel each time the garage door is opened or closed. The sensor also sends a supervisory signal to the panel every 64 minutes and is equipped with a cover tamper for added security.

The sensor is designed to be mounted on the top panel of the garage door. A built-in one-second delay feature helps reduce flase alarms if the garage door shakes in windy conditions.

I have been installing security systems for over 20 years. Recently I begone using this garage sensor as a real time saver. Well I'm in the process of replacing them and going back to the floor sensor connected to a standard wireless window/door contact. I have installed a total of 15 of these within the last 3 months and they have caused us nothing but service calls and my customers false alarms. I called Interlogic and they claim that they have no complaints. I have been the only installer who has tried them from my distributor. I would not recommend their use.

I have 4 of these sensors, one on each garage door. I am in the process of removing them all and going to magnetic garage door sensors wired into GE Security Interlogix NX650 Wireless Door Window Sensors to transmit wirelessly. I found others that have done the same thing to replace these tilt sensors when they act up. 2 weeks ago I'd have given these 5 stars. I had one on a garage door at a rental I was living at for 6 months from July to the end of 2013. The door and garage were not insulated. Recently I ordered 3 more and put them and the existing one on my new garage doors. I immediately had a problem with one of them registering open even after I closed the door. It was erratic. The original sensor I had started acting up as well. It will "stick" to open and sometimes I have to tap on the sensor to get it to transition. At first I had written this off to the below zero weather we got last week and looked into hard wired sensors for these two doors. All 4 doors are insulated and the garage is divided. These two are on the side that is not heated. I was prepared to accept that the cold and possibly the humidity in the garage from the house and melting snow was to blame. Now today I have a sensor in the unheated side of the garage acting up. It's sending open/close signals and this door is never opened. I no longer have the packaging and to be honest I ordered them over a month ago and just got to installing them so I can't return them. I will be contacting the manufacture but I cannot recommend these to anyone. Especially not to anyone in a cold environment or that gets the change of seasons like we do here in the Midwest. So that's 4 sensors and 3 have acted up independently. There have been no other issues with my system to date. Learn from my $160 mistake and go a different, more reliable route from the start.
