Fibaro FGK-101 and external switch





I was planing to use a FGK-101 Fibaro Door/Window Senor and use a switch connected to GND and IN terminal. Does this mean that I can´t use the magnetic senor att the same time?


The idea was to use the magnetic sensor to check if the door is open and the switch connected to GND and IN to detect if the door is locked.

Hi Svartbacken!


Coincidentally I am working too with the door sensor at the moment. The manual says: 



The Fibaro Door/Window Sensor has a one,
potential-free IN input. IN input status may be
modified through the Sensor itself or by sending
GND signal to IN (diagram 3). If the Door/Window
Sensor will be used only as a binary sensor, do not
install the magnet.


So I think unfortunately it is not possible to work with the reed contact and the potential free conact at the same time
