INSTEON Motion Sensor
Model #2420M
1. INTRODUCTION
4. SETUP INSTEON DEVICE CONTROL
The INSTEON Motion Sensor is an indoor/outdoor motion sensor that will
turn INSTEON controlled lights On and Off in response to movement
around your home. The sensor also contains a photocell, allowing you to
configure the unit to only turn your lights on at night. Pair the Motion Sensor
up with INSTEON software for almost limitless automation possibilities.
LINKING TO INSTEON RESPONDERS
1. Press & hold the Set button on Motion Sensor for 5 seconds (until red
LED behind sensor lens begins steady blinking, you now have 4
minutes to complete step 2)
2. Press & hold set button1 for 5 seconds on the INSTEON responder (e.g.
SwitchLinc) you would like the Motion Sensor to control (an LED may
blink and the connected load/bulb may flash)
3. Motion Sensor’s LED will stop blinking (if not try step 2 again)
4. Test by tapping the Motion Sensor’s set button. Each tap should
alternatively turn the device you linked (e.g. SwitchLinc) on and off.
(Motion Sensor’s LED will flash each time Set button is tapped)
5. Repeat this procedure for up to 32 responders you wish the Motion
Sensor to control.
In this package you will find the Motion Sensor, a 9V battery, a swivel
mount, and 2 screws.

control before pressing & holding its set button.
6. ADJUST DETECTION AREA
AIMING & SENSITIVITY
1. Tap Motion Sensor’s set button until the linked responder(s) turn off
2. Within 10 seconds walk well out of detection area
3. Wait 20 seconds
4. Walk into and near your detection area. Your linked responders will
turn on (LED will flash upon initial motion, then once every 8 seconds
during motion)
a. If LED does not flash while you are moving within the
desired detection area, re-aim Sensor (usually means
pointing the Sensor “up”)
b. If LED flashes while you’re moving outside detection area
i.
Aim Sensor to decrease range (usually means
aiming the Sensor “down”)
ii.
If aiming sensor does not generate desired results
place jumper 1 on both pins (see section (Choose
Modes)
2. OPERATION
APPLICATIONS
1. Turn driveway or front step lights on when visitors approach
2. Have your fountain always on when you are around (and off when
you are away)
3. Save money by having HVAC and lighting automatically go into
energy savings mode when no one is around
3. SETUP
INSERT BATTERY
Use a small Philips head screwdriver to remove screw from battery
compartment on back of unit and remove cover. Attach the included 9 volt
battery. Do not replace compartment cover until instructed to do so later in
this manual. Wait 5 minutes for the circuit to stabilize. Then, to confirm unit
is functioning, tap the set button a couple of times while watching the front
of the unit. Each time you tap the Set button, a red LED behind the sensor
lens will flash. Don’t worry if the LED flashes when you are not tapping the
set button as it is simply indicating that motion is being detected.

ACCESS POINTS
Motion Sensor requires at least one INSTEON Access Point (#2443)
product installed in your home. To confirm the Motion Sensor is within RF
range of your Access Point, have a friend watch the LED on the side of
your Access Point while you tap the set button on the Sensor (while holding
it where you plan to install it). Access Point’s LED will flash a couple times
every time you tap the set button if it is within range.
2. Slide Motion Sensor onto the swivel mounting bracket (sliding the unit
to the right) until you hear a click.
3. Aim Motion Sensor towards the area in which you wish to detect motion
(detection area).
4. Test by walking through the area, linked responders should turn on
when motion is sensed, and off 1 minute after last motion sensed.
Set button
Jumper 5 (not used)
SET JUMPERS
Jumpers are small plastic
“boxes” that act as a
switch. When mounted on
2 pins, the switch is “on”.
When mounted on 1 pin
(or missing), the switch is
“off”.
Jumper 4
7. SETUP MODES (Optional)
Jumper 3
MOUNTING (See Locating Tips for Help)
1. Use the two small screws (included) to secure the swivel mounting
bracket at your desired location.
Jumper 2
5. MOUNT SENSOR
Jumper 1
WHEN MOTION IS SENSED
1. When motion is sensed the Motion Sensor will send an “On”
command to up to 32 linked INSTEON responders and flash it’s LED
(unless it is daytime and unit is in night-only mode)
2. Sensor will begin a 1 minute countdown
3. Whenever motion is sensed during countdown, the countdown will be
reset to 1 minute to easily allow you to create “occupied” versus
unoccupied modes for your home.
4. When countdown expires the Sensor will send an “Off” command to
all linked responders (unless it is in on-only mode)
Jumper 1 – Sensitivity
To reduce Sensor’s
detection range (by
approximately 33%),
carefully remove the leftmost jumper, jumper 1
(from the single pin it is
mounted on) using a pair
of needle-nose pliers and
re-mount it on both pins.
Tap the set button once, wait 10 seconds, and activate motion to
establish the new setting.
Jumper 2 – Disable LED
If you wish to disable the LED (will still operate during setup), mount
jumper 2 on both pins. Tap the set button once, wait 10 seconds, and
activate motion to establish the new setting.
Jumper 3 – Night-Only Mode
If you wish to have the Sensor operate only when dark, mount jumper
3 on both pins. Tap the set button once, wait 10 seconds, and activate
motion to establish the new setting. Note: It takes 3.5 minutes to
detect the difference between day and night.
Jumper 4 – On-Only Mode
If you wish to disable the automatic countdown “Off”, mount jumper 4
on both pins and the Motion Sensor will only send “On” Tap the set
button once, wait 10 seconds, and activate motion to establish the
new setting.
Jumper 5 – Not Used
8. REMOVE CONTROL OF INSTEON
UNLINKING FROM INSTEON RESPONDERS
1.
Press & hold the Set button on Sensor for 5 seconds (until red LED
behind sensor lens begins blinking) and release
2.
Press & hold the Set button on Sensor for an additional 5 seconds
(until the LED changes its blink pattern – it will now be on longer
than off)
3.
Press & hold set button on INSTEON responder you would like to
unlink (until its LED blinks)
4.
Motion Sensor’s LED will stop blinking (if not try step 3 again)
5.
