CT701/711 - Universal Reed Switch


The Door Contact Models CT 701 are battery operated, wireless door contacts designed for use in VIDEOFIED® security systems. Door contacts are intended for use in detecting the opening and closing of doors, windows, or cabinet doors/drawers.

The CT 701 consists of a switch detector with S 2View® spread spectrum, VIDEOFIED®, interactive, encrypted wireless circuitry for secure two-way communications with the control panel. A dual tamper function provides detection for both wall and cover tamper. The transmitter is typically installed on the stationary surface of an opening (door frame or window frame), while the magnet is installed on the door or window. With the door or window closed, the magnetic field forces a reed switch inside the detector to close, creating a secured condition. When the alarm system is armed and the door or window is opened, the detector transmits an open signal. The control panel receives this signal and responds according to system configuration/programming.

The external input terminals accept a normally closed remote switch. You can also connect a dry closed circuit (no power) from standard hardwire intrusion or smoke/heat detectors. An internal jumper selects the sensors mode of operation, whether the internal reed switch, external input, or both are active.

The detector is powered by one lithium battery that can last up to four years, depending on the amount of detector activity. The detector transmits a check-in signal every eight minutes that includes its unique identification code along with the current alarm state, tamper conditions, serial number, date of manufacture, software version and battery status.
