Motion Sensor Installation Guide


Motion sensors are always on the lookout for uninvited guests. They can detect motion within 30 feet, with a 90-degree field of view. They're also designed to distinguish between people and pets. If you have a pet in your home, check out the Pet Owners video on this page for additional installation instructions.

Before Getting Started

You'll need to install your Base Station prior to getting started. If you have pets, please watch both installation videos.
