I am thinking of installing a motion sensor in my garage which is attached to my residence. I am concerned about the extreme temperatures in the garage in the winter and summer. What is the temperature range for a motion sensor? And, since it picks up heat, in the summer, will it work if the garage is already at 100 degrees?
Glad you asked @rmeyerlaw! The recommended operating conditions for the Motion Detector are 32°F to 120°F (0°C to 49°C). Keep in mind that the Alarm devices are not rated for outdoor use and an abrupt change in temperature can lead to a false detection or false Alarm.
