Understanding Your Motion Detector's Sensitivity

By default, Motion Detectors are set to a HIGH sensitivity, so it will be triggered more easily than if set to LOW sensitivity. To change this setting:

  • Open the back of the Motion Detector
  • Remove the SENS pin covering the HIGH jumper
  • Place the SENS pin on the LOW jumper

It is important to keep in mind, a 10 lb cat 40 feet away from the sensor will not set off the sensor, however, that same cat 10 feet from the sensor will cause the sensor to go off.
