Open - Close. On - Off.

The clever Open/Close Sensor wirelessly controls INSTEON enabled lights, appliances or scenes throughout your home, it is activated when things… well… open and close.


How it works

When magnetic contact is broken, such as a door or window being opened, Open/Close Sensor is activated.

It can do things like turn on lights, set the thermostat to its comfort setting or trigger an INSTEON scene.

Easy setup

Add open/close sensing to anything that opens or closes in a matter of minutes. It can then turn on or off INSTEON enabled lights, appliances or scenes.

RF Wireless

The INSTEON Open/Close Sensor has an amazing wireless range. The strong RF wireless signal even works through walls, floors and ceilings.


INSTEON Open/Close Sensor’s status LED will double-flash after activation (even if LED is disabled), to let you know it’s time to change the AA battery.

    Good idea. Connected it with my laundry light so when I open the door the light comes on automatically. I will be back for more, thank you.
