How big are the door or window sensors

From the few photos on the website, I'm not sure those window sensors will work on my windows. They look kind of big. Does anyone know the actual dimensions? Thanks.

@kaj4 if you are talking about SS3, not SS2, they are pretty small. Don't know the exact dimensions, but work fine on all of my doors and windows. What specific type of window do you have?

@captain11 yes the newer SS3. I'm looking to replace another system that I have. I have regular double hung windows. My current sensors are small and installed on the window rails. My casings are rather ornamental and do not allow for a flush or flat mount. That's why the sensors are on the rails. From the SS photos I wasn't sure if they were small enough to do the same thing. the sensor part on the top window would need to slide past the bottom window when lifting it open. And I prefer the larger sensor part on the bottom window to fit flush on the rail. I wouldn't like how it looks if it is sitting too high or hanging over the edge.

They are much smaller than the ADT ones that were in my house before.  The skinny part of the window sensors is just a magnet.  So, if you need to, you could use a skinny magnet for that part instead.

^ Yeah, that info as well as dimensions for the SLIM magnets and how to obtain them.  So many posts on the forum where folks don't know about them, nor how to get them from SS (because the reps don't know).

For those who might see this post in the sea of lost posts because there's no search function, lol:

SLIM magnet dimensions:  1.10" x 0.39" x 0.20"
How to obtain:  Call SS, tell the rep you need SLIM magnets, give the dimensions and tell them they are smaller than the regular size magnets, because if you don't, you'll be sent the regular size magnets.
