These magnetic standoffs are a great mounting option if you want to mount your Konnected devices in a traditional metal alarm panel enclosure. The magnetic base attracts firmly to the metal enclosure, suspending the Konnected board securely. It's easily movable and removable.
4 standoffs is enough for the four mounting holes on one Konnected board.
Note: Metal enclosures can impact the wifi signal to the Konnected devices, although it does still work in many cases. Test your signal strength to ensure it's at least 50% or leave the door of the enclosure off for best signal.
Great item and hold strong. However, I ended up not using them because after further reading I did not want to go and use my old metal security box so I bought a plastic one and switched it out. I’m going to use the adhesive standoffs. I was worried about the reception through the metal box after reading some more information. But the product does work well with regard to the magnetic standoff. I’m just going in a different direction.
Magnetic Standoffs Should Be Included
The magnetic standoffs should be included with the Alarm Pro Panel kit. I purchased the 24 Zone kit. The standard package of magnetic standoffs are not enough for two boards. I need more. The standard standoffs are trash, you can't reposition them if you don't get the placement correct the first time.
The magnetic standoffs made it super easy to place the two Konnect boards in the cabinet. Also helped when wiring, because the boards could be repositioned easily to find the best placement position.
Solid alternative to plastic
Used these as an upgrade to to plastic standoffs I had before.
Great product! Makes it easy to position things right.
