Insteon Motion Detector listed multiple times

Recommended Posts

Just received my ISY994zwPro/IR today and added a motion detector so far. It's listed under ISY 3 times with the same name. I tried removing it and adding it again, same thing. 

 

If I click on ISY - it also shows all 3, but only one of them as an "On" as current state.

 

Is it normal for this device or others to be listed multiple times?

The MS units have three nodes that will show up.

If you look closely you should see the motion detected node, the LowBatt node, and the Dark node.

IOW the unit can detect three different items. You can use the dark detection (settable levels by you) for other programs and devices too.

Most set up programs to monitor the LowBatt signals and send themselves notifications via email or text message so they know a unit is failing.

Search these forums for programs to use your MS unit(s). I have 9 so far.

Some other things to note: Battery devices do not like to be queried (battery saving feature) unless you put them into Linking mode with the little black button inside the battery compartment. Once in that mode ISY can allow you to set up times, LED brightness etc... provided the "Software control" dipswitch is on in the back.

Always factory reset these units before using them. Mine always did really weird things until I did.
