It could be defective but go over the installation and set up instructions again to be sure the unit has been installed correctly and prepared for operation. Sometimes only motion across the field of "view" can be sensed.

Hi there, my Motorola Hubble is pointing out of my window to my car and front door but it’s not sending me notifications of movement ie when postman put mail in letterbox ?


Change Cameras' Placement or Pointing Angle Security cameras with built-in PIR motion sensor, such as Arlo cameras could see cameras do detect motion but fail to record or capture movement. Or cameras can't detect or record motions through glass or window glass panel.
In such cases, avoid placing motion detection security cameras behind the glass window especially cameras with a PIR motion sensor; do place wireless motion sensor security cameras closer to a WiFi router or hotspot.
The object from afar is relatively easier to be miss out, so don't expect security cameras to pick up every movement within its field of view. Focusing on strategic areas for motion detection helps achieve maximal peace of mind as well as reducing unwanted false alarms.

I have a motion detection plug in security light, is it possibel to get it to stay on all the time?


if then light is on all the time what is the point of having a motion detector unit as it is designed to switch on a light when motion is detected
the light switch on when there is no motion but as soon as detected the light comes on primarily to light the way for you or to scare off intruders
having the light on all of the time is a waste of energy

Do you have a wiring diagram to wire a security motion detection light between 2 3-way switches so switches can be turned: (on-Motion)/(on- Completely) from 2 differemt locations?


One of the switches needs to be a 4-way then the PIR will act as any other switch. The downfall is if the lights are on and motion is sensed they will turn off.

My preference is to connect the contacts of the security device across the travelers of the three way circuit. The travelers are probably the red and black in the three conductor cable. When motion is detected the lights will turn on regardless of the settings of the three way switches then after timeout they will turn off. If they are turned on with one of the three way switches nothing will happen when the motion detector turns on except you cannot turn the lights off until the security device has turned off.

I hope this helps. The motion contacts need to be isolated from the motion detector power.

PIR Sensor problem


This is normal. it takes several minutes after power up to adjust to the environment that it is in. Then the motion will only transmit a signal to the alarm panel every few minutes. This is to conserve battery life. Let it sit idle for more than 3 minutes after arming (do not trip the sensor during this period). Afterwards, the first trip should be instant and that should be all you need.

User manual for fl09sbk light


It appears this device is rate 10 amps at 230 volts = 2300 watts.
Use at least #14 wire and 15 amp breaker.
Connect wire at connection point on light.
Unit appears to have a transformer, and might make humming sound.
There is override located somewhere on unit. Possibly as a button on the motion sensor

If infrared motion detector requires separate wiring connection, then use following wiring illustration:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/How-to-wire-motion-sensor-230V.jpg

Motion sensor will probably have 2 settings.
1st setting for sensitivity, so it will not activate when cat walks up driveway.
2nd setting for time duration, selectable from 30 seconds to 7 minutes

Alarm keeps going off


The alarm might be setting to sensitve motions detecting mode,this setting,if u come close to the car or slicely taps or touch it the alarm will go off.This setting it is not good for the car as the motions detection sensors over time will get old and will go off at anything causes some presure even slice wind just past by the car.Take ur car to the alarm tech. check it out for the motions detection sensors again change to mormal setting not sensitve mode this setting mode it actually the best,because the normal setting the door have to open before the alarm will go off.Or the alarm tech have do a replacing a new alarm unit it self,because the detection motion sensors can not do a readjustment or resetting the setting any more.
