Since the motion sensor only transmits RF signals, your home must have at least one Access Point or other dual-band product to interpret the command for controlling powerline only devices.
How It Works
The motion sensor also features a secondary dusk / dawn control feature that is accessible with computer controllers such as HouseLinc or ISY-99. It allows you to set a device or group of devices to activate when the photocell detects a change in light or dark conditions for more than 3.5 minutes. Great for automatically controlling landscape lighting and more.

Note About PIR Sensors
Also, please note that certain types of treated glass may or may not act as an infrared 'wall' through which a motion sensor can 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 the motion sensor’s ability to detect motion.

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, ISY-99 or other INSTEON computer controller that supports this product can extend battery life.
