Frequently asked questions

Installation

Maintenance
When should I use the sticky pads provided instead of the screws when installing my sensor?

If the surface where you wish to mount the door and window sensors or motion sensors is smooth, i.e. UPVC, wood or painted wall, it is recommended to fit these devices without tools, using the sticky pads provided. Ensure the surface is clean before sticking in position. The sticky pad will provide optimum strength after 24 hours.

Where is a suitable place to install the Honeywell wireless motion sensors?
  1. Wireless motion sensors can be installed in any room within the premises in range of the alarm system.
  2. The recommended height and detection range are given below, however reducing the mounting height will reduce the detection range:

    ka_positioning_motion_sensors_1
  3. The wireless motion sensor should:
  • be mounted in the corner of the room if possible to allow for best coverage
  • be excluded from any areas where draughts of air or direct sunlight exist
  • NOT be mounted directly above a radiator or heater
  • NOT be mounted in any rooms with pets

One of my sensors is not communicating with my Honeywelll home alarm system. What could be the issue?

Check to see whether:

  1. Are the batteries low or flat? If you have recently replaced the batteries, have you replaced them using the correct battery type and orientation?
  2. Is the sensor mounted within operating range of the keypad? You might need to install them closer to the keypad.
  3. Is the door made of PVC? PVC doors and windows are often a problem. They have metal reinforcement and this will shield or totally block the transmitted signals.
  4. Metal items such as radiators, mirror backing or foil backed plaster board situated between the transmitter (sensor) and the receiver (keypad or siren) can block the signals.
  5. Please note that the operating distance of the sensors and other devices is reduced by the materials the wireless signal has to pass through. For example, internal walls may give around 20% reduction but this depends on the make up of the wall itself. The effect on the range of multiple walls is cumulative. For example, if there are 2 walls in the way, the range will potentially be reduced by up to 40% by each wall. Please refer to the table below for the attenuation characteristics of different types of materials.
Wall TypeRange Reduction
Dry-lined partition wall:10 - 30%
Single layer brick wall:20 - 40%
Double layer brick wall:30 - 70%
Metal panel/radiator:90 - 100%

 

What should I do if a wireless motion sensor is not detecting any movement after it has been installled?

Allow up to 2 minutes for the wireless motion sensor to stabilise and become fully operational. Please leave the room during this period.

I have a Honeywell Quick Start Alarm Kit (siren-based). How do I replace the batteries on my wireless door and window sensors or indoor wireless motion sensors (PIR)?
  1. Place the Siren into Service Mode by pressing and holding the 'Disarm' button ka_disarm on your remote control for 5 seconds. The Siren will produce 2 short beeps followed 1 second later by a single long beep. The Siren LEDs will flash together in conjunction with the beeps.

  5. Ensure no pets are in the room.

    ka_positioning_motion_sensors_7

  6. Ensure that the motion sensor is fitted securely to the rear battery cover.
What should I do if the indoor wireless motion sensor is not detecting a person’s movement? For example, when it won’t trigger the alarm?

Try one of the following solutions in this order:

  1. Ensure that the sensor is within effective radio range of the Keypad and is not mounted close to metal objects which may interfere with the wireless radio transmission.
  2. Ensure the battery isolation tab has been removed from the side of the sensor.

    ka_linking_a_new_motion_sensor_5

  3. Ensure that the Alkaline batteries are inserted correctly by checking the polarity.

    ka_maintenance_11

  4. Ensure that the sensor is mounted the correct way up, (i.e. with detection window at top).
  5. Ensure that the sensor is mounted at the correct height, (i.e. 2-2.5 metres).

    ka_positioning_motion_sensors_1

  6. After arming the system, wait for 2 minutes to allow the sensor to stabilise and become fully operational before attempting to test the sensor.

    If the above does not work, try a walk test.
    For Keypad-based systems only:
  7. Perform a walk test to ensure the ID of the sensor has been learnt into a zone (1-3). First, clear the area and wait for 2-3 minutes, then enter Test mode on the keypad by pressing the Disarm ka_disarm button on the keypad, followed by swiping a contactless tag or entering your PIN code. The keypad will respond by playing a melody. Now press the number 1 to place the system into Walk Test Mode. Now walk in front of the sensor. If the sensor is linked to the keypad, the keypad will play an alert sound and indicate the Zone number. If not, there will be no response from the keypad, and you will have to re-link the sensor to the keypad. To exit Test mode, press the Disarm button once again.

    If you discover sensors that are not linked to the keypad, you will need to re-link them. If you have a Siren-based system, you will need to re-link the sensors to the Siren.
What should I do if the LED indicator on the wireless Motion sensor flashes when detecting movement?
  1. The motion sensor could have been placed in Walk Test Mode. The Walk Test Mode lasts for 5 minutes whenever it has been activated. Wait for 5 minutes then test again.
  2. If the problem is not solved by Step 1, then it could be a low battery indication. Replace the batteries.
