Step 1: Power Your Sensor and Receiver

  • Each sensor is powered by 4 x AA batteries.
  • Each receiver is powered by a wall adapter; however, we recommend inserting 4 x AAA batteries as a backup in case of a power outage.


  • If you live in a cold area (i.e. frequently below freezing), use Lithium batteries for the sensors to ensure that they function properly in colder temperatures.

Step 2: Pair Your Sensor and Receiver

  1. Ensure that the receiver is turned on and volume is turned all the way up. Keep the sensor turned away from you.
  2. Press and hold the LEARN/NEXT button n the receiver until you see Zone 1 start to flash. The receiver is now in Learn Mode. Note: If you would like to pair the receiver with another Zone, press and release the LEARN/NEXT button until the zone you want to pair it with starts to flash.
  3. Press the MELODY button to choose the chime for this sensor. There are 32 melodies to choose from.
  4. Once you hear a melody you would like to use, wave your hand in front of the sensor that you want to activate. You will hear a beep. The sensor and receiver are now paired.
  5. To exit Learn Mode, turn the receiver off, then on again.


  • Learn mode has a time-out feature after 30 seconds of inactivity. If you didn’t hear a beep confirming that your melody was paired, repeat the pairing process and make sure that your selected zone is still flashing when you activate the sensor.

Step 3: Install Your Sensor

Tools you will need for installation:

  • Pencil
  • Phillips screwdriver
  • Electric drill with 3/32” and 9/32” drill bits (recommended)
  • Hammer (optional)
  1. Mark the mounting surface with a pencil using the four mounting holes on the sensor mount as a guide. We recommend mounting the motion sensor at least 3 to 4 ft (1 m) above the ground on a sturdy, non-metal surface (i.e. a wall, wooden post or tree) with the sensor eye pointed straight out over the area you wish to cover (such as up your driveway looking towards your house). Avoid placing your sensor in a location where sunlight will shine directly into the sensor eye. Direct sunlight may cause false alarms and/or damage to the PIR sensor.
  2. If installing on a wooden surface, you only need to use the included screws. Drill out your pilot holes using a 3/32” drill bit to a depth of ¾”. This will help prevent stripping of the screws and hold the sensor more securely.
  3. If installing on any other surface, such as brick or masonry, you will use the included screws and anchors. Drill out your pilot holes using a 9/32” drill bit to a depth of 1”. Gently tap the anchors into your pilot holes using a hammer until the anchors are flush with the mounting surface.
  4. Screw the sensor mount onto the post just until tight. Do not over-tighten.
  5. Adjust the angle of your sensor so that it is looking at your target area.


  • Always test that your sensor is working in your desired location before installing it.
