What is the Motion Sensor:
Detects movement inside the home and helps keep caregivers updated via the App.
Your Motion Sensor monitors mobility and room temperature. Avoid placing this sensor in the same room as your other Aloe Care smart devices.
Your motion sensor detects movement based on changes to temperature and surface characteristics of the objects in front of it. When it detects a person passing in front of a surface such as a wall, the temperature in the sensor’s field of vision will rise from room temperature to body temperature and back to room temperature again. This is how movement is detected.
Please note: objects of similar temperature, but different surface characteristics may also trigger the motion sensor. Triggers include, but are not limited to, dust, AC units, heaters, or motion detected through windows. We recommend not placing the motion sensors by AC units, heaters, or near windows.
Place the Motion Sensor in a location with a clear view of the monitored area.
Avoid placing the Motion Sensor close to a heating/cooling source.
Avoid placing the Motion Sensor in bright or direct sunlight.
Place the sensor free of curtains and other obstacles.
The Motion Sensor must be accessible for battery testing and maintenance.
There are several mounting options included with your Motion Sensor. You can mount it flat on a ceiling or wall, using the screws, adhesive tape, or magnet, but we highly encourage using the provided stand. Insert the stand in the small opening on the underside of the sensor. Place the standing sensor on a flat surface, such as a countertop, table, or shelf.
Resetting your Motion Sensor may be needed in order to eliminate abnormal behavior, such as trouble with setup.
- Remove the front cover of the device, taking care to make sure the batteries are still inserted correctly.
- Locate the small gray button in the middle of the device, between both batteries.
- Press and hold the small gray reset button. You will see a series of LED flashes. The LED will flash once, then two times in a row, and finally numerous times in a row.
- Release the button while the LED is flashing numerous times in a row. After you release the button, the LED should show one long flash, marking a complete reset. If you are still having issues, please visit our Support Page.
2AA batteries typically last up to 2 years before
