Secure Your Doors And Windows With The Ultra-Thin Strips Magnetic Sensor


If you’re going to install magnetic sensors in your doors and windows, you’d want them as inconspicuous as possible. And Strips has to be as inconspicuous as it gets, measuring an impossibly-slim 0.12 inches in thickness.

Described as “the world’s thinnest magnetic sensor,” it’s practically indiscernible when mounted in place, ensuring your security setup doesn’t get in the way of your interior’s design. Whether you place it in the kitchen back door, the living room windows, or the fridge door to ensure it’s never left open again, this thing should do its job without getting in the way in the tiniest bit.


Because of its slim size, Strips can be mounted directly between the side of the door (or window) and its frame, allowing it to remain invisible the majority of the time. An adhesive backing allows installation to be quick and simple, while the weatherproof housing ensures you can use it even outdoors (e.g. on the gate). It communicates via the Z-Wave protocol, so it’s compatible with many existing smart home products, with the whole thing powered by a built-in battery that’s rated for up to 10 years of use. Aside from the magnetic sensor that enables it to alert your phone when a door or window is opened, it also comes with a temperature sensor, so it should be able to trigger actions in compatible smart home devices, such as adjusting the thermostat or automatically lowering the motorized shades.

An Indiegogo campaign is currently running for Strips. Pledges to reserve a unit starts at $48.

    This is really impressive technology. It says a lot about how far home-security technology has come. The sleek design of these, and firm build promises a lot of reliability and consistent communication reliant on it’s communicative design and technology that is internalized in the magnetic strips. I was not familiar with strips like this beyond companies like BRINKS, but am presuming that this is a commonly technology-technique for installing, monitoring, and communicating physical changes such as opening/closing in an environment. The fact that it has mobile-app compatibility is really convenient, and reinforces the ability to control and monitor the security of your home or business from afar. The price seems more than reasonable, although I am not sure how large a ‘set is’ or how many strips that includes. I’d definitely be willing to give this a shot, and keep my family and I a little safer along the way.
