I have a motion sensor that is triggering motion every hour on the dot when there is no motion. I just installed the system and one out of the 4 motion detectors is triggering motion at exactly one hour increments. This had set off the base station twice. I have disabled the sensor to prevent nusiance alarms. I am not able to troubleshot at this time. I am writing the post as a place holder in the event that I need a replacement motion sensor. I will not be able to troubleshoot the sensor, as I will not be living at the house where it is located at for over a month.
I can think of nothing that would cause a motion sensor to go off exactly every hour. And that also does not sound like a defective sensor, they do not have clocks in them. So I bet there is more to this story, which you will find out when you get home.
Hey @MaykTyRambo! I recommend checking out our help center article containing tips on Motion Detector placement. Based on the symptoms you've shared, there may be a heat source nearby causing false motions. I hope this helps!
Hi @Kmcoomes. I'd suggest referencing the Help Center Article that Marley shared. If your Motion Detector is triggering constantly, it's possible that there is a window or a source of heat in the Motion Detector's field of view that is making it go off. You may need to reposition it to avoid this, or adjust the sensitivity lower. I hope that helps!
