5.0 out of 5 starsMuch bigger than expected - But excellent for outdoor use.

I purchased a whole Ring alarm system setup + some extra sensors etc, this being one of them for my gate.
The normal ring door sensors are quite small, smaller than I expected and I thought the Outdoor one was going to be very similar sized just grey, so I was VERY surprised to see its more the size of your fist.
But, that makes sense really considering its outdoor and clearly built with a lot more weatherproofing in mind, and the range between the sensor & the magnet is very good for well, my use which was a garden gate.
I did find the "Tamper" alert was a bit finicky, I found since I screwed both pieces into my gate and the mounting bracket twisted/bent ever so slightly which was all it took for the "Tamper" message to trigger so I had to unscrew it and screw the mounting bracket back ensuring it wasn't too tight but still secure and it clipped into place / tamper message disappeared and hasn't returned since.
All in all, so far I'm loving the Ring security system.
