Unique Ceilings

The following ceilings require custom mounts not provided by VergeSense. VergeSense will consult with you on suggested mounting methods and hardware.

The dimensions of the sensor mounting plate are shown below.


When the sensor is attached:

Size: 103mm (L) x 103 mm (W) x 25 mm (H)

Weight: 275 G

There are a variety of solutions that can be used to properly fix this mounting plate to a surface for a successful installation.

Open Ceiling

Rods are secured to the ceiling using rod hangers. This example shows a customized conduit and pipe hanger that has been used to mount the plate.


Beam clamps can also be used to attach a rod drop or the sensor itself when the ceiling is 12' (3.6m) or lower.

Wood Ceiling

This decorative ceiling has just enough space between the wood beams to fit a wireless sensor. The device is secured using three L-brackets that have been attached to form a clamp.


Zip-Ties and Toggle Bolts

These hardware options are versatile solutions for many ceiling types. These examples show decorative wood paneling, steel mesh, and phone booth installations.
