Introducing the world's first INSTEON motion sensor: It turns on your INSTEON lights or appliances when you enter the room and turns them off after you've left. INSTEON Wireless Motion Sensor will immediately send a radio frequency (RF) INSTEON command to linked INSTEON devices when motion is detected. Truly automating your lighting, INSTEON Wireless Motion Sensor is perfect for areas of your home such as the laundry room, closets and the garage where lights commonly get left on. Use motion sensor for indoor or outdoor applications, and link it to your lights or appliances to activate a thermostat, turn on some lights or use it as a sensor to turn on your stereo. Powered by a 9V battery, it requires no additional wiring. Additional features include an 'Off' countdown timer delay, night-only mode, adjustable motion sensitivity, wireless range of up to 150', 40-foot field of vision and a pivoting mounting bracket. INSTEON Wireless Motion sensor is a must-have for any INSTEON home automation network as an addition that will make your life more convenient, fun and energy-efficient. A 9 Volt battery is required and included
Note: SignaLinc RF's do not work with INSTEON Wireless Motion Sensor.
Note: INSTEON Wireless Motion Sensor is not X10 compatible.
Note About PIR Sensors
As with all PIR (Passive Infrared) motion sensors, there are certain factors which can cause detection range / reliability to vary. Because PIR sensors rely on changes in heat to detect motion, be aware of the following factors that can effect PIR reliability when choosing a location to mount your INSTEON Motion Sensor:
Also, please note that certain types of treated glass may or may not act as an infrared 'wall' through which Motion Sensor cannot detect. If you want to detect motion through glass, we recommend you test it in your particular application. Note: Any accumulation of ice, snow or dirt on the Fresnel lens may also interfere with Motion Sensor™s ability to detect motion.
