Door and Window Security sensor

Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.

  • Ended
Description:
This is a solar powered door and window sensor, it has very specific PCB and solar cell sizing (see attached files).
The sensor itself will need concealed mounting screws and a flat back so it can be attached also using double stick tape.

It will also need a small magnet in a plastic housing (with a way to mount the magnet) This will mount to the door or window and will trigger the contact when opened or closed.

white plastic should be used for the case, this will be used in a separate application where it may be mounted on a wall without a magnet (different sensor inside) and white is needed for that application. you can use a very slightly frosted lens over the solar cell, but it can also be clear to show the glass from the solar cell. think iphone design or sleek modern looks, it's ok to consume the entire front with solar cell, or to add some space that is not solar cell.

the winner(s) shall provide final tooling drawings in an editable format to our team.
Wants:
we will look for innovative, beautiful designs that are cost effective to manufacture. this will be used in many different applications beyond doors and windows.
Don't Wants:
big bulky designs.

I liked the example you posted. I haven't seen that product before. What I came up with for you is almost identical to this example but utilizing your existing electronic component. Was wondering why no feedback?

@TD - would love see you review on my design before deadline so that if you have any feedback I can potentially make changes before deadline!

HI TD, this design will not suit for your PCB dimensions, can we neglect the given dimensions?

Though we have no interest in copying the competition, this one is my favorite. https://www.enocean-alliance.org/product/seco_window_contact/

Can you attach some examples that'll give us an idea of the aesthetics you are looking for? Reference images that let your views reach the designer. Thanks.

Hi TD,
I need some clarification. To re-iterate the requirements - You require 2 things. One is the main assembly that houses the PCB and the solar cell, second one is the assembly that houses a small magnet. So when the door opens the magnet is away from the circuit which tells you that the door is open. Is this accurate? Something like this: https://www.google.ca/search?q=door+sensor&rlz=1C1CHBF_enCA809CA809&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiY89j3moHdAhXhIzQIHapMDsMQ_AUICigB&biw=1920&bih=934#imgrc=B-EdfHm3vMre4M:

Hi, is it a wireless design?

yes, the PCB needs to remain as-is but that doesn't mean we can't have empty space inside the enclosure... if you have a very cool design with a different PCB layout then i may look at doing a new layout on the PCB...

Hi, it looks like you don't have a solar cell on the device, this is a fairly important part...

HI TD, do you want to keep the original PCB dimensions in the new design?

Hi Mecankiad, sorry for not being clear. the plastic piece in the supplied PCB drawings in only there to show the mechanical interface between your plastic design and the PCB/solar cell. thank you

Hi. The attached assembling has already a plastic frame holding the pcb and the solar panel. Should the new design include this plastic frame ?

Customised Mercedes Unimog Truck Design
I am looking for a Unimog U5023 truck to be visualised. See https://www.mercedes-benz-trucks.com/en_GB/models/unimog-off-road.html See attached early sketch, however, we are looking for an advance on that. The rear now needs to be enclosed to house a small office, with a door to access it from the rear. There needs to be a rack on the roof that will secure the robot (shown inside a pipe) shown in the attached; this will be craned off when needed.
