Lots of RF traffic from MS16A

Postby JayBee » Sat Jul 18, 2009 10:52 am

I have bought some motion sensors (MS16A) that I'm using around the house. I can program the motion sensor that it will send an off signal after X minutes. Problem is that is is always sending an 'on signal' when motion is detected. I would rather have it send an on signal when motion is detected. and not resend an on signal until the off signal was send. This would prevent a lot of traffic on my 310Mhz band. Anybody knows if this is possible or maybe can be modified?

Thanks,
Jeroen

As far as i know this is the normal behavior. As long as there is motion detected, it will keep sending "ON", i think it is every 5-7 seconds. I don't know of any way to prevent this from happening.

hmmm, I bought 15 MS16a's. I will have to decide where to ose them and cut down to 8 too.
I'm glad I use the 310Mhz version otherwise it would really mess up my (more important) 433Mhz band.

@Jaybee,
Maybe you can create aan script that set the ms16 off in HS after a xxtime.
The problem is always with the off signal.
