Recessed Door Window Contacts Reed Security Alarm Switch (5) (reed switch recessed(5))
No external power supply, connect to wired alarm control panel GND and N.C ports directly!

Description :

These door contact sensors are great for residential and hobby card access systems, as well as a security burglar alarm system. The door position switches operate with an internal magnetic reed switch that closes when the opposing magnet comes within range of the door sensor.
Hence when the door opens beyond the range point the door position switch will toggle from a closed signal to an open signal.
When this happens the access control system or alarm system will sense the change in continuity and will know that the door or window has been opened. When the door or window shuts, the door sensor will notify your security system that the opening has been closed.

 
Specifications :

Material Shield: Anti-fire ABS
Connecting Mode: N.C.
Rated Current: 100mA
Rated Voltage: (VDC)100
Operating Distance: More than 15mm, Less than 25mm
Rated Power: 3W

OnOff SHIM (On/Off Shim)
Description:

Our SHIMs (Shove Hardware in the Middle) are a new range of boards designed to be small, affordable, and handy. They're just 1mm thick (the bare board, not including mounted components) and designed to be soldered straight onto the GPIO pins of your Pi, if you wish, so that you can use them with HATs and pHATs on top.

Usage

Just plug your micro-USB power supply into the micro-B connector on OnOff SHIM, and then press the button once to switch on power and boot up your Pi. After installing our software (details below), you can press the button again to initiate a clean shutdown and completely cut the power to your Pi.

Features

  • super-small SHIM-format board
  • 1mm thick PCB
  • can be used with HATs and pHATs
  • corner-mounted push button for on/off
  • micro-B connector for power supply
  • red status LED
  • optional breakout pins to connect an external momentary button
  • 2x6 female header included
  • software daemon to shutdown cleanly
  • requires soldering

Software

We've put together a one-line-installer to install the clean shutdown daemon. It watches the state of BCM pin 17 and, when pulled low (pressed), it initiates a clean shutdown. Last thing, just before your Pi shuts down, BCM pin 4 is pulled low to completely cut power to your Pi.

To install the software, open a terminal and type curl https://get.pimoroni.com/onoffshim | bash to run the one-line-installer.

Add a tiny yet convenient power switch to your Pi with OnOff SHIM!
