How do I program a Honeywell wireless motion detector?
When programming a Honeywell wireless motion detector, there are a few key things to remember.
First, is that the motion detector must be programmed to a zone number that supports wireless zones. With alarm control panels like the VISTA-20P or VISTA-21iP, zones 09-48 can be used for wireless motion detectors. With wireless alarm control panels like the L3000 LYNX Plus or L5100 LYNX Touch, you can program your wireless motion detector to any of the non panic zones.
Second, your wireless motion detector should be programmed either as zone type Interior Follower (04) or Interior w/Delay (10). When a motion detector is programmed as Type 04 Interior Follower, it will activate as an instant alarm in all instances unless the intruder tripped an entry/exit zone before the motion detector zone. In which case, the wireless motion detector will "follow" the entry/exit zone and activate only after the entry delay times out. The Interior Follower zone type is good for motion detectors installed near alarm keypads as it prevents someone from hiding in your property before the system is armed and them disarming the system after you leave. When a wireless motion detector is programmed as Type 10 Interior w/Delay, it will always wait for the programmed entry delay to time out before activating. Both zone types are active when the alarm control panel is armed in away mode and inactive when armed in stay mode.
Also, make sure to set a report code for your wireless zone if your wireless security system is monitored by a central station and program your wireless motion detector as a RF (supervised RF) input type so that your alarm control panel will alert you if the motion detector is out of range of your wireless receiver.
Finally, input the wireless motion detector's serial number and program the correct loop number.
