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

    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.

    Poor Range Review by Paul
    Poor Range

    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

    Good But Not Great Review by MikeBurk
    Good But Not Great

    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.

    Review of 2842-222

    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.

    Works as advertised. My only wish is that this device also had a built in light.

    Review of 2842-222

    The price makes this product a good deal, but don't expect it to be a truly great motion sensor. It will detect motion, but its light sensing capability needs improvement. I wanted it to only trigger when ambient light was very low, but this sensor triggers even when there is medium light, even after adjusting to minimal light sensitivity. If you want to sense motion, but only trigger in certain conditions, best to use this with Houselinc or some other program control that can add that logic.
