    I'm having a problem installing the sensors on my entry and side doors.  The moulding is 1/2 inch thick and won't let the magnet line up with sensor.  Any suggestions?

    Alot of times you can reverse the two pieces and put the larger one on the door and the smaller magnet on the frame. This allows you to put some extra double sided tape under that larger sensor and build it up a bit. Remember they dont have to be perfectly even, if you can get them within a 1/4'' or so of each other then you will be fine.

    I hope this helps you out, let us know if you have any further questions.

    Have a great day!
