Cove Motion Detectors are designed to provide you with a second line of security in your home. Motion detectors are a cost-effective way to protect large areas with a single movement sensor. In many cases, just one motion detector in a central location will trigger motion alarms and provide excellent security.
This sample floor plan has three motion detectors. One motion detector in the hallway, one in the dining room area, and one in the living room area. In most homes, one motion detector covering a high traffic, central location can provide sufficient security. --Larger homes with remote areas may need additional motion sensors for comprehensive security.
Each wireless motion sensor is pre-programmed with your Cove Touch security panel. You can customize each motion sensor name in your alarm kit to correlate with its location within your home. With a couple touches of the screen, you can confirm each motion sensor is setup properly and ready to start providing worry free security for the ones you love.
Sometimes you don’t want to arm your motion sensors, for instance when you’re home. Easily use our Arm Stay security feature and only your perimeter sensors will be activated. This will allow you to walk freely throughout your home at night without accidentally setting off your alarm.
If you are adding new equipment to your alarm system, make sure you have already added this Motion Sensor to your alarm system before you install this piece of equipment.
With security you can depend on, trade technicians for easy-to-use tech that lets you install new motion sensors to your alarm system in minutes, without compromising your security.
