Installation Guidelines
Motion sensors are ideal whenever it is not practical to
install Door/Window sensors on every opening. Large
areas in an open floor plan, downstairs family rooms,
and hallways are candidates for motion sensors.
Motion sensors are not suitable for rooms where pets
can enter.

Installation
Instructions
Use the following guidelines for installing motion sensors.
■
If possible, locate sensors within 100 feet of the
panel. While a transmitter may have a range of
500 feet or more out in the open, the environment
at the installation site can have a significant effect
on transmitter range. Sometimes a change in sensor location can help overcome adverse wireless
conditions.
■
Mount the motion sensor on an insulated, outside
wall facing in.
■
Mount the motion sensor on a rigid surface which
is free from vibrations.
■
Position the sensor so it faces a solid reference
point, like a wall.
■
Do not aim the sensor at windows, fireplaces, air
conditioners, area heaters, forced air heating
vents, or place it in direct sunlight. Sudden
changes in temperature may trigger a false alarm
from these devices.
■
Do not mount the sensor near duct work or other
large metallic surfaces which may affect the RF
signals (see RF Testing). Actual acceptable transmitter range should be verified for each installation.
Product Summary
A motion sensor (passive-infrared or PIR) detects
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 this motion is detected, the
sensor transmits an alarm signal to the control panel.
Use motion sensors to protect locations where door/
window sensors are impractical or not needed. For
example, use a motion sensor to protect large areas or
open floor plans. Motion sensors also provide backup
protection for door/window sensors.
The NX-480 Wireless Motion Sensor includes the following features:
■
35 feet by 40 feet coverage area for standard and
animal- alley lenses
■
Masking kit provided to block portions of coverage area
■
■
3-minute transmitter lockout time after an alarm
that helps extend battery life
Mount the sensor permanently on a flat wall or in
a corner. Do not set it on a shelf.
■
■
Cover-activated tamper (optional wall-activated
tamper is included)
Windows should be closed in any area which has
an armed motion sensor.
■
■
Supervisory signal transmitted every 64 minutes
to the control panel
A pet will trigger a motion sensor. See Animal
Alley lens guidelines to use a motion sensor when
pets are present.
■
Sensor low battery reports (trouble) to the control
panel
■
■
Field-selectable sensitivity options
Position the sensor to protect an area where an
intruder would be most likely to walk across the
detection pattern (see Figure 1).

For best coverage, mount the sensor from 5 to 8
feet high in the corner of the area you want to
protect. See the Animal Alley lens guidelines for
mounting the Animal Alley lens. Higher mounting provides better range (up to 35 feet), and
lower mounting provides better protection close
to the motion sensor (see Figures 2 and 3).

The animal alley lens provides protection in installations where pets move about freely.
■
Allowed mounting height is between 3 and 5 feet.
■
Position the sensor to have a clear line of sight
across the protected room.
■
For best results, install the sensor higher than the
highest point that the pet might reach in the
detection area.
■
If the detection area contains furniture or other
objects upon which the pet could climb or jump,
either remove these objects, mount the PIR a safe
distance above these objects, or mask these areas.

Lens Replacement:
1.
Use the following procedure to mount the sensor.
1.
2.
3.
Remove the mounting plate by depressing the
button on the top of the sensor body. With the
opposite hand pull the mounting plate away from
the body of the sensor.
Punch out the mounting holes that best fit your
application. See Figure 4 for wall mount options.
See also Figure 5 to determine which knockouts to
use when mounting the motion sensor. Use the
lower-side holes for corner mounting, or the
lower-back holes for surface mounting with the
standard lens.
For applications without pets, use the lower
mounting holes. For applications with pets, use
the upper mounting holes and the animal alley
lens.
If you desire wall-tamper functionality, remove
the wall-tamper knockout (see Figure 5).
Note:
The wall-tamper switch cannot be used when the
sensor is swivel or corner mounted.
Mark the location of the required holes on the
mounting surface.
Use wall anchors and screws to secure into
place.Attach the sensor to the mounting plate.

To change the lens, first remove the sensor from
its mounting plate by depressing the button on
the top of the sensor.
Remove the cover by depressing the two tabs on
the top and the one tab on the bottom of the sensor body and sliding the cover off (see Figure 7).
Remove the installed lens by gently placing pressure on the lens from the outside of the lens.
Replace with the appropriate lens by aligning its
notches with the appropriate tabs in the cover.
Install the new lens with the smooth side facing
out and the grooved side facing in.
Replace the cover and then replace the sensor in
its mounting plate.
Setting the Sensitivity
The PIR is set to standard sensitivity at the factory.
This sensitivity is preferred for most applications and
provides the best immunity to false alarms.
CAUTION: High sensitivity should only be used
in extremely quiet environments
where thermal transients are not
expected.

1.
Locate the sensitivity pins by first removing the
mounting plate and the sensor cover as described
in steps 1 and 2 of Lens Replacement process.
Note:
When the walk test mode has ended, an alarm
can be transmitted only after 3 minutes have
passed since the previous alarm. This 3 minute
lockout time reduces unnecessary RF transmissions in high traffic areas thereby extending battery life.
Environment Testing
Turn on all heating or air conditioning sources which
would normally be active during the protection
period. Stand away from the sensor and outside the
coverage pattern and watch for alarms.

3.
Locate the sensitivity pins under the battery on
the right side of the PIR when looking at the front
of the PIR.
The sensor is set to standard sensitivity at the factory. To change this to high sensitivity move the
shorting jumper to the pair of pins that are closer
to the top of the PIR (see Figure 6)
Note:
4.
If the shorting jumper is not used or placed incorrectly, the sensor defaults to standard sensitivity.
Walk- testing should be done to determine the sensor’s actual coverage area. The edge of the coverage
pattern is determined by the first flash of the LED.
This may change slightly depending upon the sensitivity setting. Walk test the unit from both directions
to determine the pattern boundaries.
2.
Removing the sensor body from the mounted
mounting plate and then remounting the body to
activate the 60-second walk test mode.
Walk across the coverage pattern to determine the
coverage area, indicated by LED activation. Each
activation extends the walk test mode for an additional 60 seconds.
After the walk test mode has expired, the LED will not
activate when motion is detected.
Note:

1.
2.
Determine which detection zone/lens segment
needs a masking label.
Peel the desired mask label from its backing and
apply to the inside of the lens segment to be
blocked.
Programming
Walk test the PIR to verify the sensitivity.
Walk-Testing
1.
After walk-testing and environment testing are completed, apply masking labels to the sensor’s lens to
block detection of desired areas. The masking labels
provided are cut to match the corresponding lens segments.
Excessive use of the walk test mode may reduce
battery life. Use only for initial setup and maintenance testing.
For complete programming instructions, refer to the
NX-Series Receiver Modules Installation Instructions.
Maintenance
At least once a year, the range and coverage should be
verified for proper operation. The end user should be
instructed to put the sensor in walk test mode and
walk through the far end of the coverage pattern to
verify proper detection.
Replacing Batteries
When battery replacement is necessary, observe
proper polarity (as shown in the battery compartment)
when installing the new battery, or the sensor may be
damaged. Be sure to note that as you look at the battery compartment, on the left side the positive side is
down and on the right side the positive end is up.
When the battery is replaced, wait at least 3 minutes
after installing the battery before activating the walk
test mode. See Figure 7 for battery locations.
