How It Works - Motion

This sensor detects the movement of heat in its field of vision. The system has two arm modes, Arm Away and Arm Stay. In away mode, the motion sensor detects movement and will trigger an alarm. In stay mode, the motion detector is not active and will not trigger an alarm. To preserve battery life, the sensor will go inactive for three minutes after it has been triggered.

Motion Sensor FAQ

Due to the sensors heat sensitivity, we recommend NOT installing the sensors:

  • In direct sunlight
  • Facing a window
  • In a room where many animals gather or are active
  • Near an air vent while warm air is on
  • Near a shelf or high furniture that small pets can climb onto
  • In an area of the home where water can condense on the sensor

Test Mode

You can place your sensor in test mode by:

  1. Removing the back of the motion sensor by pressing the clip that is inside of the hole on the bottom of the sensor
  2. Remove the battery
  3. Hold down the Tamper switch and re-insert the battery
  4. Put the sensor back together

Once in test mode, whenever the sensor senses motion a RED dot will appear on the front. In order to have the sensor resume normal function:

  1. Remove and re-insert the battery without holding the Tamper switch
