Description

The outdoor motion detector detects moving heat sources and activates or deactivates Niko Home Control functions.
Outdoor motion detectors are typically used near driveways, patios, garden areas and garages.

Overview

Operation

The outdoor motion detector detects motion by using Passive Infrared Technology (PIR). It detects motion within a 180°
angle and within an area between 0 and 14 m (if mounted at a height of 2.5 m). It also includes an integrated light sensor.
You can change the settings of the outdoor motion detector via the module itself to activate or deactivate Niko Home
Control functions during the day, in the evening or during the night. These functions are assigned while programming the
installation by linking functions to the unique address of each outdoor motion detector.

After a power failure, the outdoor motion detector will still function properly after the installation has been restarted.


Installation

Connecting and mounting




  • The outdoor motion detector is more sensitive when mounted laterally to the walking direction.
  • Mount the outdoor motion detector at a height of 2 - 3 m.
  • Do not mount the outdoor motion detector near trees with branches and leaves that may blow in front of the outdoor motion detector.
  • Do not mount the outdoor motion detector near heat sources or air currents.
  • Do not position the outdoor motion detector towards the light source it is meant to activate.


Opening the outdoor motion detector

Insert the tip of a screwdriver into the holes provided to remove the cover. Open the outdoor motion detector.


Mounting the outdoor motion detector onto a wall

  1. Guide the bus cable through the holes provided in the housing and connect the sensor.


  2. Mount the housing onto the wall using the screws supplied.


  3. Reposition the cover on top of the housing until it clicks into place.


Mounting the outdoor motion detector onto a ceiling


To attach the motion detector to a ceiling, a ceiling installation bracket is required.
The ceiling installation bracket is available separately.
  1. Push the ceiling installation bracket onto the housing until it clicks into place.


  2. Guide the bus cable through the holes provided in the housing and connect the sensor as shown in the following image.


  3. Reposition the cover on top of the housing until it clicks into place.


  4. Mount the outdoor motion detector onto the ceiling using the screws supplied.


Selecting the outdoor motion detector settings

Below are the factory settings for the light sensitivity, switch-off delay and detection range of the device:

Light sensitivitymaximum
Switch-off delay7 min
Detection range14 m (depending on the colour of the detector)

The potentiometers underneath the cover can be used for changing the settings as follows:

Light sensitivity5 lux to infinity
Switch-off delay8 s to 30 min
Detection range0 to 14 m (depending on the colour of the detector)


To change these settings, simply open the cover and use a screwdriver to turn each potentiometer to the desired setting.

The sensor can be rotated horizontally within a 25° angle to modify the direction of detection.

If a portion of the detection area is to be excluded from monitoring, cover the sensor lens using the cover cap supplied.

Follow the instructions in the following image.

Maintenance of the outdoor motion detector

Dirt and grime may prevent the outdoor motion detector from functioning properly. Make sure the lens is clean at all times.
Use a damp cloth and water with some detergent to clean the lens. Avoid pressing hard against the lens. Replace the
outdoor motion detector if the lens or other parts of the outdoor motion detector are faulty.

Reading the addresses of several outdoor motion detectors whilst programming the installation

Switch the light sensitivity of all outdoor motion detectors to the minimum setting before reading the addresses.

To read the address of an outdoor motion detector:

  1. Switch the light sensitivity of the outdoor motion detector to the maximum setting and wave your arms in front of the lens.
  2. Switch the light sensitivity to the minimum setting again.
  3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 for each outdoor motion detector.


Troubleshooting


ProblemPossible causeSolution

The outdoor motion detector
is not activated.

The outdoor motion detector is not
connected properly.

Connect the outdoor motion detector as
described in the manual.

No/little detection
during the walking test.

The outdoor motion detector is not
mounted properly.

Mount the outdoor motion detector as
described in the manual.

The lens is covered, dirty or
faulty.

Remove the cover mask and/or clean the lens.
Replace the sensor if the lens is faulty.
