How to Change Batteries in your ZPoint Wireless Sensor

« Go Back



The batteries in your Point Wireless Sensor will last from 2 to 5 years, depending on use. The main factors affecting the life of your battery are report interval and signal strength.

*Note: We recommend that you use AA Energizer Ultimate Lithium batteries; other brands have a noticeably shorter life span. Standard alkaline cell batteries may be used, but they do not perform well under cold conditions.


  1. Turn the unit over and locate the screw.
