IR Sensor?

[/ATTACH]Anyone know what this is for? Looks like an IR sensor at the bottom of the door well (on the door frame). The wires go out the bottom and lead off into the wire loom below the outside step motor.

Looks like a magnet sensor to sense when the door is open or closed for the step operation.

Should be a magnet on the screen door that actuates the switch. Is the part behind the sensor (with the wires) separate?

The comments above are correct. It is a magnetic switch for the steps to operate when the screen door is opened or closed.

Thanks, that makes sense. It came loose and I cleaned the back and reattached it with some double stick tape. Just wondering what it was for.

Bonus, if you have the steps fixed out, then when you open the door, it turns on the overpowering step light.
