You need to set the modules ZS and AP commands to non defaults values. You also need to know what ZDO frames to issue to get the device to connect/associate and respond.

Thank you for your reply,

I immediately tried ZC=1 and ZC=2 with AP=1.
But with no result.

What is ZDO frames?

Are there written sample settings of the parameters?
Is there a pdf or page with explination?

You are going to need to first contact the manufacture of the Aqua door sensor first to find out what protocol or standard it runs on.

Then you can adjust the XBee accordingly provided it is one of the Zigbee standards.

There is an example of what ZDO frames look like in the XBee S2C Zigbee product manual. https://www.digi.com/resources/documentation/digidocs/90002002/default.htm#Reference/r_zb_zdo_transmissions.htm?Highlight=ZDO
