This is the GE Indoor/Outdoor PIR Motion Sensors Installation
Instructions for model numbers:
• 60-639-95R (indoor)
• 60-639-95R-OD (outdoor)
• 60-639-43-EUR (indoor, not investigated for use by UL)
• 60-639-43-ERT-OD (outdoor, not investigated for use by
Passive-infrared (PIR) motion sensors detect movement within a
specific area by sensing the infrared energy emitted from a body
as it moves across the sensor’s field of view, causing a temperature change in the sensor’s zones. When the sensor detects this
motion, it transmits an alarm signal to the control panel.
Use the indoor sensors to protect large areas and open floor plans
or as backup protection for door/window sensors.
Use the outdoor sensors to identify motion in a protected outdoor
area. Detected motion in this protected area can sound chimes or
turn on outside lights. Do not use the outdoor sensors for intrusion protection.
Features include:
• 35 by 40 ft. (10.7 x 12.2 m) coverage area for standard and
optional pet alley lenses;
• masking kit to block portions of the coverage area;
• three-minute transmitter lockout time after an alarm to
extend battery life;
• cover-activated tamper (an optional wall-activated tamper is
• supervisory signal transmitted every 64 minutes to the
control panel;
• sensor low battery reports (trouble) to the control panel; and
• field-selectable sensitivity options.
Indoor sensor installation
Use the following installation guidelines:
• If possible, mount the sensor within 100 ft. (30.5 m) of the
panel. While the transmitter may have a range of 500 ft.
(152.4 m) or more out in the open, the environment at the
installation site can have a significant effect on transmitter
• Position the sensor to protect an area where an intruder is
most likely to walk across the detection pattern. (Figure 1).
Figure 1. Overhead detection pattern
• Mount the sensor between 5 and 8 ft. (1.5 and 2.4 m) from
the floor (Figure 2). We recommend a height of 7.5 ft. (2.3
m). Higher mounting provides better range, and lower
mounting provides better protection close to the sensor. See

Indoor/Outdoor PIR Motion Sensors
Installation Instructions
• Mount the sensor on a rigid surface that is free of vibrations.
• Do not aim the sensor at windows, fireplaces, air conditioners, area heaters, or forced air heating vents. Do not
place it in direct sunlight. Sudden changes in temperature
may trigger a false alarm.
• Do not mount the sensor near duct work or other large
metallic surfaces that may affect the RF signals (see Testing
on page 4). Verify actual transmitter range for each installation.
• Mount the sensor permanently on a flat wall or in a corner.
Do not set it on a shelf.
• Mount the sensor on an insulated, outside wall facing in.
• Position the sensor so it faces a solid reference point, such
as a wall.
• Close all windows in an area with an armed motion sensor.
• A pet will trigger a motion sensor. See Pet alley lens on
page 3 to use a motion sensor when pets are present.
You can flush-mount, incline-mount, or corner-mount the sensor
depending on the lens used. Use the optional swivel mount (part
number 60-737) for difficult mounting locations (Figure 3).
To mount the sensor, do the following:
1. To remove the mounting plate, depress the button on the top
of the sensor (Figure 4) and pull the mounting plate away
from the sensor.
Figure 4. Sensor parts
The wall-tamper switch cannot be used when you mount
the sensor in a corner or on the swivel mount.
Figure 3. Mounting options

Inclined mount
Punch out the mounting holes applicable for your installation (Figure 5). Use the lower-side holes for corner
mounting, or the lower-back holes for surface-mounting
with the standard lens. For applications with pets, use the
upper mounting holes and the optional pet alley lens.

Use wall anchors and screws to secure the mounting plate in
place. Attach the sensor to the mounting plate.
Test the sensor in place (see Testing on page 4), then screw
the housing screw (the smallest screw provided) into the
hole at the top of the mounting plate.
Lens replacement
Sensitivity settings
To change the lens, do the following:
1. Depress the button on the top of the sensor and pull the
sensor from the mounting plate.
2. Depress the two tabs on the top and the one tab on the
bottom of the sensor body and slide the cover off (Figure 4
on page 2).
3. To remove the lens, gently place pressure on the lens from
the outside of the lens.
4. Align the new lens’s notches with the tabs in the cover.
Install the new lens with the smooth side facing out and the
grooved side facing in.
5. Slide the cover on the sensor and attach the sensor to the
mounting plate.
The sensor is set to standard sensitivity at the factory. This sensitivity is preferred for most applications and provides the best
immunity to false alarms.
Pet alley lens
The optional pet alley lens (part number 60-709) provides protection in installations where pets move about freely. See Figure 2
on page 1 for the coverage pattern.
Follow these guidelines for installations with the pet alley lens:
• Mount the sensor 3 to 5 ft. (0.9 x 1.5 m) high. For best
results, install the sensor higher than the highest point the
pet might reach in the detection area.
• If the detection area contains furniture or other objects that
the pet can climb or jump on, either remove these objects,
mount the sensor a safe distance above these objects, or
mask these areas.
• Be sure to flush-mount or corner-mount the sensor with the
back of the sensor parallel to the walls. Do not use the
inclined-mount position because this will tilt the sensor’s
field of view downward.
• Position the sensor so that is has a clear line of sight across
the protected room.
High sensitivity should only be used in
extremely quiet environments where
thermal transients are not expected.
To change the sensitivity setting, do the following:
1. Depress the button on the top of the sensor and pull the
sensor from the mounting plate (Figure 4 on page 2).
2. Depress the two tabs on the top and the one tab on the
bottom of the sensor body and slide the cover off (Figure 4
on page 2).
3. Looking at the front of the sensor, locate the sensitivity pins
under the battery on the right side (Figure 6).
Figure 6. Sensitivity pins
To change to high sensitivity, move the shorting jumper to
the pair of pins that are closer to the top of the sensor
(Figure 6).
If the shorting jumper is not used or is placed
incorrectly, the sensor defaults to standard
Walk test the sensor (see Testing) to verify sensitivity. Slide
the cover on the sensor and attach the sensor to the
mounting plate.
Indoor/Outdoor PIR Motion Sensors
Installation Instructions
Outdoor sensor installation
Use the following guidelines for outdoor installations:
• Use the outdoor sensors for outdoor applications with a
temperature of 10 to 120°F (12 to 49°C).
• Do not use outdoor sensors for intrusion protection because
any human, pet, or heated mechanical motion such as an
automobile can activate the sensor.
• Follow the indoor sensor installation guidelines (see Indoor
sensor installation on page 1), except for the last four items.
• Do not aim the sensor at objects that may be heated excessively by the sun, such as blacktop or dark-colored objects.
• The sensor housing is water-resistant, but not water-proof.
Mount the sensor underneath eaves or porch coverings to
prevent exposure to rain, ice, and direct sunlight.
To mount the sensor, do the following:
1. Determine the mounting location for the sensor. Leave at
least 4 in. (10 cm) of room above the wall mount plate to
attach the sensor.
2. Use the supplied screws and anchors to attach the wallmount plate with the opening for the swivel mount facing
3. To attach the sensor assembly to the wall-mount plate,
screw the sensor assembly up into the opening in the wallmount plate.
4. To remove the sensor for testing or battery replacement,
slide the front cover of the sensor upward until you can
remove the sensor.
Testing the sensor includes a walk test, an environment test, and
a final test with the control panel.
Filter installation
A 1 in. (2.5 cm) piece of lens material is included with the
outdoor sensors. The filter reduces the sensors’ sensitivity to
white light sources (sunlight and head lights) and infrared
sources. Install the filter when you experience unwanted sensor
activations due to these sources.
To install the filter, do the following:
1. Slide the front cover upward untill you can remove the
sensor from its enclosure (Figure 4 on page 2).
2. Depress the button on top of the sensor to remove the
mounting plate.
3. Depress the two tabs on the top and the one tab on the
bottom of the sensor and slide the cover off.
4. Place the sensor on its back and drop the filter into the lens
chamber covering the sensor’s detector.
5. Replace the cover, making sure the filter remains in the lens
chamber and does not interfere with the attachment of the
6. Replace the sensor’s mounting plate and install the sensor in
its enclosure.
Refer to the panel installation instructions for information on
programming the sensor into the panel.
Walk test
Walk test the unit from both directions to determine the pattern
boundaries. The edge of the coverage pattern is determined by
the first flash of the LED. This may change slightly depending on
the sensitivity setting.
To walk test the sensor, do the following:
1. Remove the sensor from the mounting plate to activate the
tamper switch and remount the sensor on the mounting plate
to start the 60-second walk test mode.
2. Walk across the coverage pattern to determine the coverage
area, indicated by the LED activation. Each activation
extends walk test mode for an additional 60 seconds. After
60 seconds without motion, walk test mode and the LED
will no longer activate when motion is detected.
When walk test mode has ended, an alarm can be transmitted
only after three minutes have passed since the previous alarm.
This three-minute lockout time reduces unnecessary RF transmissions in high traffic areas and extends battery life.
Excessive use of walk test mode may reduce battery life.
Use only for initial setup and maintenance testing.
Environment test
For indoor sensors, turn on all heating or air conditioning sources
that are normally active during the protection period. Stand away
from the sensor outside the coverage pattern and watch for
For outdoor sensors, verify that the sensor’s coverage area does
not extend into undesired areas that might cause unwanted activations. These areas include undesired human, pet, and automobile motion.
Coverage masks
After you complete the walk test and environment test, you can
use the masking labels provided to block detection of problem
areas. The masking labels are cut to match the corresponding
lens segments.
To mask coverage areas, do the following:
1. Determine which detection zone/lens segment needs a
masking label.
2. Peel the appropriate mask label from its backing and apply
it to the inside of the lens segment to be blocked.
Final test
Do a final test to verify radio signal integrity and confirm control
panel programming and response.
To test the sensor with the control panel, do the following:
1. Remove the sensor from the mounting plate to activate the
tamper switch and the sensor’s walk test mode.
2. Replace the sensor on the mounting plate.
3. Place the control panel in sensor test mode. Walk across the
sensor’s detection pattern until the sensor’s LED turns on.
Stop your motion.
4. Listen for the appropriate system response. If the system
does not respond properly, see Troubleshooting on page 5.
Test the sensor at least once a year to verify proper range and
coverage. Instruct the end user to put the sensor in walk test
mode and walk through the end of the coverage pattern to verify
proper detection.
If the system doesn’t respond correctly when the sensor is activated, follow these guidelines:
• Check sensor programming (refer to the panel’s programming instructions) and reprogram the sensor if necessary.
• Move the sensor to another location and test for correct
To relocate the sensor, do the following:
1. Test the sensor a few inches from the original position.
2. Increase the distance and retest until you find an acceptable
3. Mount the sensor in the new location.
If no location is acceptable, do the following:
1. Test a known good sensor at the same location.
2. If the system does not respond, avoid mounting a sensor at
that location.
3. If the replacement sensor functions, return the problem
sensor for repair.
Battery replacement
When you replace the batteries, observe proper polarity (as
shown in the battery compartment) to avoid damage to the
Replace only with two AA 1.5 V alkaline
batteries. Dispose of used batteries
according to the manufacturer’s
instructions and local government
To replace the batteries, do the following:
1. Remove the sensor from the mounting plate and slide the
cover off the sensor to reveal the battery compartment.
2. Remove the batteries and replace with the new ones. Be
sure to observe polarity. As you look at the battery compartment, on the left side the positive end is down and on the
right side the positive end is up (Figure 4 on page 2).
3. Wait at least three minutes after installing the batteries
before you activate walk test mode.
