The tri-zone wireless door/window contact adds value to any installation by providing installers with thhree zone and reliable 433 MHz technology. The device can be mounted in the traditional manner, or if that is inconvenient for applications such as garage doors, it can be configured for normally closed "tilt switch" operation. In addition, the WS4965 has two normally closed external contact inputs that can be used for additional hardwired contacts or other dry contact switches. the internal contact provides a generous magnet gap of 1/2" (13mm) and flexibility during difficult installations as it easily accomodates larger door or window frames.

Product Features:

  • 3 zones in 1 (each zone has an individual serial number)
  • Reed/Magnet combination
  • Tilt switch mode for overhead doors
  • 2 normally closed external contact inputs
  • Long-life lithium battery included
  • 1/2" (13mm) maximum magnet gap
  • Low-battery LED indicator
  • Case tamper
  • Reliable 433 MHz technology
  • Includes backplate
  • UL/ULC and FCC/IC listed

Versastile
The WS4965 is designed to accomodate different mounting options; it can be mounted in either "reed switch" or "tilt switch" mode. In reed switch mode, use the screws provided to mount the magnet no more than 1/2" (13mm) from the WS4965. If necessary, use the spacers provided to custom fit the device. Only one magnet can be used for each WS4965.

When being used in tilt switch mode, the WS4965 can be mounted anywhere on a garage door, for example. Once the door is open, the tilt switch will activate and generate a transmission. To add an extra entry delay, the device can be programmed to wait one minute after the tilt switch activates before it transmits the alarm.

Value Added
The WS4965 is equipped with two normally closed external contact inputs that can be used for additional hardwired contacts or other dry contact switches. The device is also supervised and sends a periodic supervisory transmission to the control panel. If the panel fails to receive a transmission within the preprogrammed period, a trouble will be indicated at the keypad. Each of the three zones of the device transmits a separate supervisory signal to the receiver. the WS4965 is built with reliable 433 MHz technology, uses long-life lithium batteries and is compatible with all current DSC wireless receivers.

Low-Battery LED Indicator
A red LED indicator on the WS4965 flashes at 10-second intervals to provide visual identification when a low battery condition is detected. This information is then transmitted to the control panel.

The previous user had problems because be did not adjust the angle of the built-in tilt element inside the transmitter to 45degrees as stated in the manual. Also, there it must be mounted UP. Obviously, the transmitter needs to be mounted on the top most panel of the garage door so it trips when the first panel swings flat upon opening. I have 3 garage doors with this model on each one and they have worked perfectly since I put them in over 3 years ago. Still on the original batteries, and we come and go at least twice a day on 2 of the doors.

I have one of these installed on my door using the tilt switch and have never had a problem with it failing to recognize either the open or closed state. It's been in service for 11 months now and behaved well even through a midwest winter. I'd definitely buy this unit again.

Well, I bought two of these to use in Tilt Switch mode for my garage doors. It was totally unreliable. The tilt switch was fine at recognizing the open state, but inconsistent at recognizing the closed state. I spent several hours trying to adjust and it just wouldn't work properly. I ended up falling back to Reed Switch mode which worked fine, but the size of the unit made it challenging to mount without interfering with the garage door operation. I would definitely not buy this again.
