Never Leave Another Light On Again
INSTEON Wireless Motion Sensor is a great energy-saver: Your lights will turn on when you enter and automatically turn off after you leave, so you’ll never have to worry about leaving your lights on. Also, INSTEON Wireless Motion Sensor has a built-in photocell, so it can be disabled during the day. If daylight is enough to light your house during the day, Motion Sensor can leave the lights off, even when motion is detected. Using Motion Sensor to limit the amount of time lights are on, is a great first step towards saving energy and protecting the environment.

Dusk / Dawn Sensor
Save energy by ensuring lights are off at dawn or turn your porch lights on at dusk with INSTEON Motion Sensor's dusk / dawn feature. When used with supported INSTEON software or an INSTEON automation controller, Motion Sensor can also be used as a dusk/dawn sensor. After it has been bright for 3 and a half minutes, Motion Sensor will send an Off command for its 'Group 2', which can be used to turn off lights and appliances or trigger a software event. Conversely, it will send an On command after it has been dark for 3 and a half minutes. .

Low Battery Warning
Get notified when it's time to change the battery. INSTEON Motion Sensor has 2 methods of indicating the battery life is low:

  • LED double-flashes after motion is detected (even if LED is disabled)
  • On command is sent to 'Group 3', which can be utilized with INSTEON software or an INSTEON automation controller

    For extended battery life, consider purchasing a 9V Lithium battery which can extend battery life by 4 times.

    If you have a need for the motion sensor to activate many links, using HouseLinc or another software that supports this product can extend battery life.

    Motion Sensor has been manufactured with a surface that can be painted to blend in with your home décor. This gives you the ability to decide exactly what color will give your motion sensor installation that professional finished look. Please note, it is recommended that you protect the Fresnel lens during the painting process. Any excess paint or residue may cause motion sensor to operate improperly.
