What's the best way to connect a wired magnetic contact stripe to the door, in order to detect whether or not it's open.
I'm not interested with a wireless one, I'm building all the electricity from scratch, so I want a wired one.
The way I thought to do that is, to use a push button interface (in my case, a KNX PBI), and connect it to the a magnetic contact stripe on the door.
On the door the magnetic contact stripe would close/open the circuit and notice the PBI when the door is closed/opened.
My question is, what's the best location to place the PBI? Should I place a switch near the door, and put the PBI behind it?
Should I pull the cables of the PBI far, to the fuse box?
