Door / Window Contact Sensor

This article contains instructions for programming a Door / Window Contact Sensor with the S03 system.

NOTE: If you purchased the sensor as part of a kit, then it has been pre-programmed to the main panel already, and no other programming is needed. Follow these steps below if you have purchased a sensor separately, and are now adding it to an existing system.

Programming a Door/Window Contact Sensor with the S03 Main Panel:

  1. Turn off any motion detectors to prevent accidentally programming them.
  2. On the Main Panel, enter the following:
  3. <your 4-digit password> #
  4. 7 # <2-digit zone number> #
  5. Trigger the sensor by moving it away from the magnet. The light on the sensor will come on, and your panel will beep twice.
  6. On the Main Panel, press #.
  7. Turn on any motion detectors that were turned off.


It's also a good idea to make sure that the Zone's attributes for the sensor are set to Zone Type 1 ('Immediate'). To set a Zone to Zone Type 1, do the following:

On the Main Panel, enter the following:
<your 4-digit password> #
* <2-digit zone number>
2 1 #

Please note you can also change individual sensor attributes via the My Fortress mobile app on your smart phone by going to Management->Sensors->Sensors
