    Review of 2842-222

    I have many of these sensors and they all work great. They work very well with the ISY-99i controller for controlling lights and security. Battery life is good. They are easy to configure using the ISY-99i controller. Only thing is: I wish they were smaller and I wish they would ping the current state a couple of times per day.

    Review of 2842-222

    The replacement motion sensor had the same faults as the sensor it replaced. it will not sent text or email alerts when motion is sensed. Several phone session with tech support failed to come up with any corrective action. Without the alerts the device is useless. It is troubling and disappointing that Smarthome is unable to provide support for this product fault.

    Once in a while it will go silent and stop responding. Unfortunately there is no heartbeat signal to determine if it is working. Wish they made a wired version!

    Review of 2842-222

    Once I was sent the replacement for defective unit, operation characteristics were as expected. This is my forth unit and they all work well. Life expectancy much greater if kept relatively protected from sun and harsh weather.

    Review of 2842-222

    Giving Smarthome benefit of doubt here because I had to RMA one of my 3 motion sensors after only 10 months. The dead motion sensor was outdoors over the front door controlling the front door Smarthome light switch and a regular LED bulb. The motion sensor, switch and LED bulb all died when we were away on vacation. It's like there was some lightning strike or cosmic ray burst, very strange. No problems with my other two sensors out back at this writing.

    Works great. I wish there was more control over sensitivity (One of my applications needs less sensitivity).

    Review of 2842-222

    These motion sensors work well. The only thing I couldn't get to work reliably is the day/night sensor setting. I tried setting the threshold off the internal potentiometer to no available. Even working with Insteon tech support I couldn't find a setting that worked reliably. Eventually I gave up and bought an ISY and used the suppression rules to replace the day/night functionality.

    Other than this, these motion sensors work great. I have several and like them.

    Review of 2842-222

    This is by and large the most useful of the Insteon product line. Half of the automation out there could not be done without using this coupled with a controller to function as a energy saving device, a low light detection device and a timer. The product functions as it should however it should be noted that these motion sensors are not necessarily pet friendly. While there's a way to modify the sensor beam (abc) great care needs to be performed to aim the sensors where a pet will not trip them unless you like the lights coming on anytime they walk by throughout the day/night even if you're not there. It would be nice if the batteries lasted longer as they're difficult to change. There should be a mini motion sensor version created to reflect the change in technology as these haven't changed size in several years, almost as far back as the x-10 erra. What would be nice is if the motion sensors could act as a range finder to identify an object's location relative to the sensor to allow for more fine tuned control.
