The Versa Motion is a professional state-of-the-art motion sensor engineered with the world's best components and materials. Special analog stealth circuitry provides micro controller-grade intruder detection at the lowest cost. The circuitry includes innovative HighBar™ processing for false alarm rejection - better than most ASIC-based methods. In addition, patented PYROFLEX™ IR detection provides much stronger intrusion signals than conventional detectors, so the processor easily tells real intrusions from false alarms.

Compatibility Adjustment

Note: Set compatibility before removing battery pull tab. Remove backplate. See Figure B. Turn compatibility dial with flathead screwdriver to coordinating security system and sensitivity. See Figure A.

Sensor Initialization

Following power-on, the Versa Motion sensor is fully operational after a one-minute warm-up.

Walk Test

Note: The Versa Motion should be tested once per year. In Normal Operating Mode: Enable the LED by removing the back mounting bracket to depress the tamper switch. If the LED is NOT enabled, then remove the battery, turn the rotary dial to a HIGH SENSITIVITY (non-pet immune) mode, and re-insert the battery. Walk across the monitored area (within the sensor's optical fields-of-view). With sensitivity set at LOW (pet immune), the LED should turn ON (for Alarm) after about three to five normal steps. With the sensitivity set at HIGH, the LED should turn ON (for Alarm) after about two to four normal steps. Each time the LED turns ON, wait for it to turn OFF. Then, wait 12 seconds before continuing the walk test. When there is no motion in the monitored area, the LED should remain OFF.

Alarm Processing

Dual-element detector fields-of-view alternate between (+) and (-) polarity. HighBar qualified signal events are counted as “pulses” exclusively when polarity alternates. Depending on sensitivity setting, (+, -), (-, +), (+, -, +) or (-, +, -) will cause an alarm.

Installation Instructions


    1. Height = 7.5-10 feet above floor of monitored area.
    2. Clear line-of-sight from sensor to monitored area. Note: Glass will block sensor’s view.
    3. Wall temperature similar to walls/floor of monitored area.
    4. Sensor aimed away from windows and reflected sunlight.
    5. Sensor aimed away from heaters or heater/cooler outlets.

    Backplate Removal

    In the slot at the bottom of the mounting bracket, use a screwdriver or thumbnail to lift up on the bracket to remove it from the Versa Motion. See Figure B.

    Base Hole Preparation

      1. For wall mounting, knock out hole covers. See Figure C.
      2. For corner or 45 degree wall mounting, use drill to open at least two holes at base side depressions.
      3. For bracket mounting, use drill to open a 3 mm hole in the center of the square recess at the rear of the base.

      Wall Mounting

      Use screws to mount on wall or in corner. For wall tamper, screw in hole referred to in Figure D.

      Motion Sensitivity

      With low sensitivity (pet immune), detection occurs in 3 to 5 steps. With high sensitivity (non-pet immune), detection occurs in 2 to 4 steps. Pet immunity is defined up to 65 lbs.

      LED Indicator Operation

      The below chart shows possible LED.
       Sensor State LED Display
      Warm-Up OFF
      ON 3-6 Seconds (if LED enabled)
      Normal OFF

      Note: Serial numbers are located under battery. See Figure E.
