The motion detector is available new on Ebay right now from an electronics surplus dealer. Just type in 12v motion as your search and at least half a dozen come up. I bought one and it was new in the box with the instructions.

How to Operate a Home Security System Without a Contract


Many homes have alarm security system installed, even though the current tenants may not have been the ones who paid for it. Some did pay for it but just can't afford the high monthly cost of alarm monitoring. Many people don't realize that once the alarm security system is installed only the monthly monitoring fee stands in the way of free home security. The alarm system still works without monitoring, and it is easy to configure on your own.
  • Install the dial capable motion detectors in place of the entryway motion detectors. The mounting directions and hardware will be included in the motion detectors' packaging. Often the old motion detector's hardware will mount the new one.
  • Connect phone lines to the new motion detectors as instructed by the manufacturer. Usually the lines connect from the new motion detectors to a phone or third-party dialer.
  • Program the dialer or the dial-capable motion detectors to dial the phones of your choice. Your cell phone is usually the most important phone number to program into the dialer to alert you quickly if there is an intruder.
  • Arm the alarm as you normally would. If there is an intruder, the new motion detectors will sense the movement and will dial your phone to alert you.
  • Tips & Warnings

    • Consider replacing the motion detectors that cover the windows and alternate entry and exit points, especially if you have a large home or one with several different entry doors.
    • If the dialer-enabled motion detector is capable, program a second and third phone number into the dialer to maximize effectiveness. Dialing your cell and your neighbor's home phone, for example, would be more effective when you are away from the area.

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).

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.

My motion detector switch stays on, lights won't turn off. How do I reset the switch?


Hi MBE,

Most motion detectors have sensitivity and duration adjustments. Others have test modes.

Since the model is not specified, I can't tell you where to look.

You will know it when you see it though.

Best regards

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.

Electrical hook up for 2 motion detector lights so both lights operate when either detector is activated (dual master system)


yu can't do it with off the shelf detector. Sine the detector is single input.
you need serial and parallel input to the device.
you need to get commercial detector that haev serial and parallel input to the detector.
