Honeywell Six Motion Detectors Frequently Asked Questions

Do Alarm Motion Sensors Work Through Glass?
Motion sensors detect changes in infrared (IR) energy. This cannot be done through modern glass, so motion sensors do not sense through glass. Learn more about PIR motion sensors.
Added:

Do Motion Detectors Work Through Windows?
Motion sensors are usually unable to detect motion through glass. The infrared energy needed to activate a motion won't easily pass through glass. Learn more about motion sensors.
Added:

Do Motion Sensors Work in the Dark?
Passive infrared motion sensors work by detecting changes in infrared energy. This allows them to work in the dark, Learn more about motion detection sensors and how they work.
Added:

Which Sensors are Compatible with the Lyric Alarm System?
The Lyric Security System will support encrypted Honeywell SiX Series Sensors that operate at 2.4 GHz. It will also support sensors that operate at 345 MHz. This includes any Honeywell 5800 Series Sensor and any 2GIG Sensor. Find out which sensors are compatible with the Lyric Controller.

Where Should I Install My Motion Detector?
There are several things you should keep in mind when choosing a location for a motion detector. The ideal location for a motion detector is in the corner of a room and away from any windows. The device should be placed 6 to 8 feet off the ground. Learn more about where to install a motion sensor.
Added:

Can the Lyric's SiXPIR Motion Be Used to Trigger HomeKit Scenes?
It is possible for a SiXPIR motion to activate scenes that have been set up through Apple HomeKit. The Lyric Controller will sync the motion and HomeKit. The SiXPIR will activate an automation on HomeKit, which will then activate the scene. Learn more about using devices to trigger HomeKit scenes.
Added:

Microwave vs. Passive Infrared Motion Detectors
Two of the most common methods for detecting motion are microwave sensing and passive infrared technology. These two methods are both highly effective in detecting motion, but they operate in completely different manners. Learn more about microwave vs. passive infrared motion detection.
Added:

Are Honeywell's Wireless Sensors Encrypted?
Honeywell's SiX Series wireless sensors are secured using 128-bit AES encryption to prevent signal tampering. Honeywell's 5800 series wireless sensors do not provide this feature. The 5800 series 4-button keyfobs, do provide a rolling code encryption to make remote arming and disarming more safe.
Added:

What is the Best Honeywell Motion Sensor?
Honeywell offers several security sensors that are designed to detect motion. The best one really depends on the type of setting that it will be used in. Once you consider the application of the sensor, you will be able to determine the best one for your needs. Learn more about motion sensors.

How Do I Prevent Pets from Setting off My Motion Detectors?
It can be very troubling when a pet sets off your motion detector. When this happens, it can cause costly false alarms and major inconveniences the end user. Luckily, most sensors can be adjusted to prevent this from happening. Learn how to prevent pets from setting off your motion detectors.
