Positioning and installing the motion sensor

The Link must be installed before a motion sensor can be added. The only way to install a motion sensor is by using the Somfy Protect mobile application.

 

Positioning advice

On a piece of furniture or on a wall

The Somfy motion sensor can be placed on a piece of furniture, a shelf, or installed on a wall (along the wall or at an angle), using the stand and adhesive strips.

Detection angle

Place the motion sensor so that you are covering the openings you want to protect: position it perpendicular to the flow of movement through the room.

Locations to avoid

The motion sensor is intended for indoor use:

  •   do not place it near a source of heat
  •   do not expose it to direct sunlight or any other source of light (a lamp, etc.)
  •   do not expose it to water or drafts
  •   avoid obstacles: the protected area must be free of obstacles

3. Turn the motion sensor over, then place it back right-side up again. The siren will confirm this action by a notification sound; the sensor has been successfully connected

4. Now all you need to do is name the sensor according to its location in your house

Before finalizing the installation, you can conduct a function test. This test can also be conducted at a later date.
