Wireless Motion Detecting Sensors Frequently Asked Questions

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.
