Product overview

• A motion sensor for windows and doors to provide security for your home
• Wireless range of up to 300m, utilising DECT ultra-low energy wireless standard
• One push pairing button for easy pairing
• Must be used in conjunction with the Panasonic hub unit

What is this sensor for?
This Panasonic motion sensor is for keeping your home secure. You can link it to the Panasonic smart home hub to keep an eye on the security of your home via the smart app. So that you are more likely to notice any events, you can also receive push notifications if movement is detected.

How does the sensor connect?
The security kit transmits the data wirelessly and does so using Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications (DECT). This technology allows for transmission of data up to 300m in clear line of sight and is safer than Wi-Fi when in use due to it being invisible to standard wireless products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Motion Sensor Comes with a bracket to mount next to a window, wall, door and also can be ceiling mounted (which I did). Detection range is about 5 Meters. Detects heat only, so no false alarms with lights or sound when you are away. can be set to low to help with not detecting pets (not tested). Be aware that the sensor works as a line not a cone detection area. If ceiling mounted ensure it is facing the correct way for detection. Think of the detection area as a 5 meter wall you can pass through, but on the sides of the wall the detection won't work. My is mounted at the top of the stairs with the wall (detection area) line pointing down the stairs which works great. I paired this to work with my kitchen light (Panasonic plug adaptor) to come on for a few minutes during the even. Scenario: I need a drink, walk to the top of the stairs (sensor picks me up and turns on the kitchen light) I can see to get to the kitchen, make a quick drink and go back to bed, with the light switching off automatically - Great. I feel this is a must with the system as I found the camera to be a nightmare, it would pick up light from cars passing the house causing the alarm to go off. At least with this only heat (a person) breaking the sensor is going to be much better and also good for turning lights on. Comes with 2AA batteries which apparently last about a year and are easy to replace.

I have an off-grid hut 200 metres away in a small woodland clearing - would this device have enough power to alert the hub from that distance? (I have walkie-talkies powered by three AAA batteries which easily communicate over this distance).

Asked by: stevew
No the distance would put it well outside of the effective transmission range of this item.
