    Hi all:
    I have an interesting problem - I got a new door installed, and they carted
    away the old one with the sentrol "stuck on" part - leaving the screwed-in
    sensor part hanging from the jam. I need to get the darn thing fixed as I am
    tired of overriding that particular sensor. So - where can I go to buy a new
    sticky part in Ottawa, Canada? Failing that, what can I use to spoof it to
    think it is closed even though the other half of the sensor is gone to the
    dump!

    Thanks
    Doug

    From your description, it is a bit difficult to appreciate exactly what kind
    of contact is on your door. But give me a call at 798-3434 if you wish, and
    I might be able to help you out...I've got buckets of scrap and semi-scrap
    parts accumulated from years of being in the business.

    It's just a magnet.

    This gentleman called me directly and I'll be fixing him up. Sounds like he
    needs a bit more than just a new switch for his older version non monitored
    system....

    You can just,,,securely tape a magnet (any old magnet) to the dangling
    switch until you fix it properly. That will keep the switch closed, and the
    zone 'ready'.

    You'll have to put the switch (the dangling think) back into the door frame
    if it's a recessed switch, or glue or fasten it security to the frame its a
    surface mount switch. Then find a matching magnet to fix the problem
    permanently.

    Hi Everyone:
    Thanks for the assistance. The magnet suggestion did not work - I tried
    fridge magnets, office magnets, and a rare earth magnet, all with no joy.

    Mr. Campbell had a suggestion for me which worked quite well in the short
    term, and the monitoring company reports no problems as well.

    I appreciated all your suggestions, and thank you all!

    Doug
