Question about Heath Zenith SL5316WHB Replacement WideAngle Motion Sensor White

Open Question

My motion detector does not turn on the lights. The red LED flashes but the lights will not come on. This has been working perfectly for a long. I did not adjust anything. Does the entire unit need to be replaced?

New smoke detector, new batteries, red light flashing is that normal


copied from the manual, available at the kidde website

RED AND GREEN LED INDICATORS This smoke alarm features separate red and green LED indicators. The LEDs indicate the following: GREEN LED CONSTANT ON - AC power is present. OFF - AC power is not present. RED LED - Can be seen through the Push-to-Test button. Blinks once a minute - Indicating presence of a working battery. Blinks once a second - Smoke alarm senses smoke and simultaneously sounds an audible alarm. Blinks once every 10 seconds - Smoke alarm is quieting an unwanted alarm (Model ADC only). (Interconnected system only): OFF - Another smoke alarm in the network has sensed smoke and is signalling this alarm.

Why is the LED light completely off after the walk test and lockout time?


Yes, it works normally. Things have evolved in the technology of security systems and now it is standard to have any LED turned off on any motion detector (the LED's are now used for walk-testing only), the standard DSC and Honeywell wireless motions also do the same thing.

  • This is a normal function for your motion detector. It's also a great power saving function since most of the current draw on the batteries is when it's transmitting a detection signal so if you're home and moving around it will only transmit every few minutes instead of every second, saving on battery life significantly (up to 5 years on average) but after the 3-minute lockout the passive infrared scans continuously until it transmits another motion signal.
Reason: most burglaries are done by someone who has been there before, if they see the LED then they know the motion will catch them moving in that given spot, then they can "map-out" where it's safe to walk (where the LED doesn't light up) for when they plan to return for a robbery.

You can also make this device "more sensitive" by moving the jumper pin position by the right side battery and having the back mounting plate mounted using the bottom screw presets so it faces slightly downward instead of straight forward.

Helpful tip: Change the batteries every 4 years if you're using Alkaline (dead or not) since the detector was engineered "too energy efficient" and the batteries actually leak and corrode the interior PCB at about the 5-year point on about 15% of the detectors with factory original duracell batteries (from what I've experienced in field service).

Yes it should flash the red led, that means that the system is recording at that specific moment....I would worry if there is motion in the front of the cameras and the red light wouldn't flash.

How to reset/fix an indoor motion detector?


Depends on the model of the detector, but wireless motions are not supposed to light up; if they light up they have been put into test mode, either by opening the tamper switch, removing and reinserting the battery, or by positioning an internal jumper to the test position. If the motion is a 5890(PI), remove the batteries and short the empty battery sockets for about 30 seconds to reset the low battery circuit, then reinsert the batteries and close the cover, making sure the tamper switch is properly closed. Other motions don't need this reset procedure, but do need all tamper switches closed. Ensure no one is moving near the motion and reset the keypad by entering your code plus Off (just like coming home). If everything is right and all other devices closed the ready light should come on.

There are settings on the sensor itself. Should be a dusk to dawn setting that will keep it off during those times and then function at night. as far as not working I would first suggest setting the sensitivity. Disrupting to power could have reset this.

The red wire from motion detector connects to both of the black wires from the lights. The black wire from the motion detector connects to the incoming black wire from the switch or source. The white wire from the motion detector connects to both of the white wires from the lights and to the incoming white wire from the switch or source (all white wires are under one wirenut).

Dsc sensor not operating properly. I want to change it, is this very difficult? Thank you.


You don't mention what type of sensor. I assume it is a motion detector. Before replacing I would strongly suggest you first remove all power from the system by disconnecting the backup battery inside the control panel then pull the system's power transformer which should be plugged into an electrical outlet nearby. You will know that all power is removed by looking at the keypad - all lights on the display are off. Next remove the motion detector's front cover. Some detectors have a small screw on the bottom so that when removed the cover pops off. Others need to be opened using a flat blade screwdriver and prying off the cover. Once the cover is removed there should be a 4 conductor wire that is wired to a series of terminals. Observe the polarity of the wires, disconnect them and remove wall mounting screws. Install new unit. Be sure when wiring to connect power wires correctly. The 4 conductor wire should have a red (positive) wire and a black (negative) one. Connect the red to the + or pos terminal and the black to the - or neg terminal. Read the instructions that came with the new unit if in doubt. When finished plug the power transfomer back in then reconnect the battery (in this order). If power is connected properly the motion detector's red walk test light (indicating motion) should light whenever you walk in the protected area. Also make sure the system recognizes motion by first closing all protected areas such as windows and doors to get a system ready or green light indication on your keyad, then walk around the protected area. A properly working detector will show you a fault on the keypad everytime the system senses motion.
