Multiple door sensors

How can I do multiple door/window sensors on single low power Arduino NRF24L01 ? Add another sensor and the resistor to the pins ( 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 ) ? But how to modify the code for the Arduino? Thank you

I'm sorry for my poor english. I speak Czech.

I assume no one replied?

I've started looking at the same. The problem I see is that the code writes the unit address to the Flash, Ideally we want to write reserve 3 consecutive addresses, but then send to each one dependent on trigger.

I managed to get the 3 addresses to register, I just haven't had time to take it further yet.
// Simple binary switch example 
// Connect button or door/window reed switch between 
// digitial I/O pin 3 (BUTTON_PIN1 below) and GND.

#include <avr/sleep.h>    // Sleep Modes
#include <MySensor.h>
#include <SPI.h>
#include <Bounce2.h>

#define CHILD_ID1 3
#define CHILD_ID2 4
#define CHILD_ID3 5

#define BUTTON_PIN  3  // Arduino Digital I/O pin for button/reed switch
MySensor gw;

#define INTERRUPT_SENSOR  1 // Interrupt 1 is on DIGITAL PIN 3!
#define SLEEP_IN_MS 86400000 // 1 day

byte val;
int oldBatLevel;

Bounce debouncer = Bounce(); 
int oldValue=-1;

// Change to V_LIGHT if you use S_LIGHT in presentation below
MyMessage msg(CHILD_ID1,V_TRIPPED);
MyMessage msg2(CHILD_ID2,V_TRIPPED);
MyMessage msg3(CHILD_ID3,V_TRIPPED);

void setup()  

 // Setup the button
  // After setting up the button, setup debouncer

  // Register binary input sensor to gw (they will be created as child devices)
  // You can use S_DOOR, S_MOTION or S_LIGHT here depending on your usage. 
  // If S_LIGHT is used, remember to update variable type you send in. See "msg" above.
  gw.present(CHILD_ID1, S_DOOR);
  gw.present(CHILD_ID2, S_DOOR);
  gw.present(CHILD_ID3, S_DOOR);  

  val = digitalRead(BUTTON_PIN);
  oldBatLevel = -1;  


//  Check if digital input has changed and send in new value
void loop() 
  // Get the update value
  int value = debouncer.read();
  if (value != oldValue) {
     // Send in the new value
     gw.send(msg.set(value==HIGH ? 1 : 0));
     oldValue = value;

void sendValue()
  gw.send(msg.set(val==HIGH ? 1 : 0));
  // Here is where we want to add the extra sensors and the GW.send address needs to change.

  int batLevel = getBatteryLevel();
  if (oldBatLevel != batLevel)
    oldBatLevel = batLevel;

// Battery measure
int getBatteryLevel () 
  int results = (readVcc() - 2000)  / 10;   

  if (results > 100)
    results = 100;
  if (results < 0)
    results = 0;
  return results;
} // end of getBandgap

// when ADC completed, take an interrupt 

long readVcc() {
  long result;
  // Read 1.1V reference against AVcc
  ADMUX = _BV(REFS0) | _BV(MUX3) | _BV(MUX2) | _BV(MUX1);
  delay(2); // Wait for Vref to settle
  noInterrupts ();
  // start the conversion
  ADCSRA |= _BV (ADSC) | _BV (ADIE);
  set_sleep_mode (SLEEP_MODE_ADC);    // sleep during sample
  interrupts ();
  sleep_mode (); 
  // reading should be done, but better make sure
  // maybe the timer interrupt fired 
  while (bit_is_set(ADCSRA,ADSC));
  result = ADCL;
  result |= ADCH<<8;
  result = 1126400L / result; // Back-calculate AVcc in mV

  return result;
