Garage Door Sensor
« on: June 08, 2014, 08:13:13 pm »
I can't seem to find any information about the garage door sensor part of the system.  I see how to install it, but I don't know where to get the necessary hardware.  Is it something special that I need to order from Bluespray?

It would appear the link to store.bluespray.net has passed its 'best if used by...' date.  Could someone please refresh the answer to jwglover's question?  Are we looking for a simple wired normally open magnetic reed switch here?  The kind they sell on eBay at 5 for about $6.00?  Thanks.

Yes, you can use any normally open magnetic reed switch, but for the garage, we recommend something that is strong and rugged such as this one:
