How do I test my motion detector?

Equipment | My System | Sensors

Our wireless motion detectors go through a short sleep period after they detect and transmit activity to the system panel. If you feel that your motion detector is not working, then it’s important to test your device. Learn how to test your security system here.

When testing your motion detector, be sure to arm your system in Away mode so the motion detectors are armed. Also, try to stay clear of the motion detector you are testing for about five minutes prior to starting the test. You can place your system on test by logging into your Guardian account
