Detects motion when there is none

Question

I have a fibaro motion sensor and it keeps detecting motion even though there is none about every 10 seconds.  turned off all scenes that interact with the motion sensor - still does the same thing. I restarted my HC2 - does the same thing. Motion sensor on latest firmware.

 

*the only time it stops for a while is when the lux in the room goes to 0. but then it will detect motion again.

**I do have the sensitivity really low, when I raise it above 20 it seams to go back to "normal" I don't want this at 20 rather it be 8-10. I have two other fibaro motion sensors set to 8-10 with no problems. 

 

@T.Konopka do you know what this could be? a bug?

One of my motion sensors kept doing the same thing! I tried to reconfigure, completely remove and add back again, nothing worked!!

 

I finally replaced the battery with a new one and all is working fine until now :-D

 

Hope that works for you!

It seems to be common problem of newer Fibaro motion sensors. You need to decrease sensitivity (increase parameter 1 value).

I had the same twice with one of the motion sensors with out of the box settings. The only thing configured is an association. First time I just removed the battery a couple of minutes and that worked. The second time it didn't work. I put the sensor in a box and kept detecting motion. I removed the sensor from Home Center. And re-added it like a new sensor and it works again. Fingers crossed.

 

When this happens I ask myself why I didn't buy neo coolcam for 1/3 of the price...

  • I have re-added it more than.once. still does the same thing to this day. I read somewhere that there is an issue with the newer fibaro motion sensors. I did confirm that this is a newer one. as you can see in my screenshot both are in the same room but the one will not stop detecting motion even though there is no motion in the room.
