What is a Rare-earth Magnet?
They have actually been around since the 1970’s, and are made from alloys of rare-earth elements. Rare-earth magnets produce significantly stronger magnetic fields than other permanent magnet types, and that is what we use in our IQ Mini-S door sensors.
The Qolsys IQ Mini-S sensor is a sleek, ultra-compact sensor that can be used on doors & windows for security purposes, but did you know you can use them for automation?
Using a sensor with your Qolsys IQ Panel 2, you can create rules to turn lights on when any door is opened. This is helpful in rooms that may have an out of the way light switch, utility rooms, closets or even laundry rooms. With the benefit of the rare-earth magnet's powerful reach, the sensor will connect up to an inch away, if you have doors or windows with more ornate moldings.
But they are not just for doors...
Some other ways you can use these sensors to receive a text alert when triggered.
There really is no limit to where these handy little sensors can go. Pair them with the Qolsys IQ Panel 2 and get professionally installed by American Defense Systems.
