How do I mount my Motion Sensor?

Mounting instructions

To mount the Motion Sensor, click the step-by-step guide below.


Select a mouting location

Select a spot in a large, high-traffic area of your home, approximately 7 1/2 feet off the ground.


Mount the sensor

If you're adhering your Motion Sensor to the wall using the two included adhesives, make sure the surface is clean and dry. You can also set your Motion Sensor directly on a shelf.

Once you've attached the included adhesives and removed the wax backing, press the sensor against the wall for 30 seconds.

Regardless of whether you are placing sensors in a corner or on a wall, be sure to use both adhesive strips.


Put your sensor in Test Mode

You'll want to ensure you've placed your Motion Sensor correctly. To do so, you must put your sensor in test mode.

Start by pressing up on the grooved button on the bottom of the sensor to remove the front portion, then replace. The red light will turn on for a few seconds.


Perform a walking-test

Walk across the coverage area to test. If the light illuminates, the sensor is working properly.

The motion sensor performs a re-calibration after each time it senses motion. The re-calibration takes about 30 seconds. The sensor will NOT sense motion during the re-calibration. The sensor will stay in test mode for 3 minutes.


Mounting complete

The Motion Sensor has a detection range of 90 degrees, and detects motion up to 40 feet away.
