    Insteon MS works very well Review by Larry
    Insteon MS works very well
    Rating

    These units work almost flawlessly with the ISY994i home automation controller! I have a lamp control unit in each location to receive and repeat the signals over to the wiring.

    I have seven of these units and they wok flawlessly for MS detection while we are away. I have only had one false trigger while we were away in a year of seven units so far and that room has my bird in front of it the far end of the room so I may have been a legit false trigger.

    I have all my MS units direct-scene linked to the plug-in modules and the delay is imperceptible. Then my ISY turns them off at appropriate times depending on time of day etc..

    Cheap supplied alkaline battery lasts about a year with high traffic usage. I have low battery detection programs that include the dark sensor as a battery monitor for each unit on my ISY994i, that sends me a text message which unit's battery needs replacing.

    After linking each unit to my ISY all the settings can be set from the ISY software but the linking button has to be initiated first, for security.

    I wish the AC adapter was still available but I will have to find other sources that I would be sure are cheaper anyway.

    Got a final notice warning Review by Acheung
    Got a final notice warning

    working fine for several months, only problem is the range to the hub is not too much, you have to keep them close, when you have several sensors, then you have difficult to put them in a 2000ft 2 stories wooden house. SMS worked good, but suddenly got a warming for sending abnormally high volume of sms alert. Don't know why, they didn't say any limit for each hub or sensors. Will call the customer to find out. My daily alerts are only 40 to 50 for 2 sensors.

    poor range Review by Paul

    Insteon claims 150 ‘ range but when I installed this about 70 feet from the hub and router it would not respond. It worked fine within about 30 feet. When I called tech support they were not surprised and said the range was about 50ft or less depending on the walls and other obstructions between the hub and the motion sensor . When I pointed out the 150ft claim on the website - that surprised them and they said it probably was with a straight run with no obstructions--- a very unlikely scenario . Totally I bought about $400 worth of equipment but the heart of it and most important to me was this motion sensor so now it is all getting returned- Customer service was good about the return but if one exterior wall between the hub and sensor reduces the range to 30’ it is almost useless as an exterior sensor . There is a range extender but it needs to be plugged in between the hub and sensor—not possible for me since hub was already near the outside wall

    Motion sensor stops working every few minutes Review by Arsh
    Motion sensor stops working every few minutes
    Rating

    I just bought two new motion sensor and set them up.

    The worked for 1-2 times and then after a while they won't change the status, if it is red (motion detected) then it remains red and if it is green (no motion detected) it remains green.

    Every time I spend hours to fix this and after a while I see the same issue is back again.

    Good But Not Great Review by MikeBurk

    Always works well... for a while, weeks or a few months. Then they stop responding and you have to take them apart, replace the battery, and reprogram them. This could be a very key device if they were smarter, wired and better designed.

    Easy to install and integrate with my ISY. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is due to battery life. Works about a month to 6 weeks.

    This was the second replacement of this motion detector. This unit is working as expected. The question now is how long will it work as expected.
