Window sensor mounting on windows with deep trim


Looking at setting up a new Surety monitoring system in our home, but trying to figure out how to mount sensors on our windows.

We have old Victorian era single-hung single-pane windows, with deep trimming, see photo attached:

How would I best add sensors to these windows? Can I mount the magnet on a surface perpendicular to the switch itself?


In a situation like this, depending on the width of the frame around the glass, I would mount the sensor to the sliding portion, then the magnet to the frame. What is possible/best will depend on the trim. It is ok if the sensor overhangs the edge a bit.

IQ D/W Minis would likely be best sensor option.
