The IMS-4212 Wireless Dry Contact sensor provides remote contact monitoring without running wires. Contact data is sent from the sensor to the IMS-4200 Wireless Node via an integrated 2.4GHz wireless radio. The device can transmit its signal up to 250′ indoors and even greater distances when it has line-of-site. The IMS series of wireless sensors also feature mesh networking technology, which allows each sensor to be used as either a wireless sensor/router or as a low-power battery operated sensor (also referred to as an end device). When used as a router, greater distances can be realized because each sensor/router adds another 250′ of range to the system. The sensor comes with 3 AA alkaline batteries which will power the sensor for up to 2 years (end device mode). An optional plug-in power supply is also available, in which case the batteries function as backup power if main AC power fails (power supply required for router mode).
