Wireless PIR to trigger rule?
Posted by edfinley on 02/26/2011 07:28 AM

I have the GE PIR that works fine to trigger an alarm. I can't get it to trigger a rule. In RP status window it doesn't show that it's violated when there's motion, it won't trigger a rule, but it will set off the alarm if the system is armed. The zone is currently set to burgler iterior. It's an M1G system with the elk M1XRF. Thanks for any tips, Ed

Check the GE Installation manual for a feature which will prevent the PIR from sending a signal for x minutes once tripped. This feature is used to extend the life of the battery.

Thanks Brad, I saw the 3 minute feature but that's not the issue. If I set the device to a non-alarm it will trigger a rule when it trips, but not an alarm. If I set it to burgler-interior it will trip the alarm but not trigger a rule. The hard-wired ones I have will trigger a rule and/or alarm(depending on armed or not) when set to burgler-interior. I'm trying to get these to do both in the same way the hard-wired ones do. Regards, Ed

What is an example of your rule?

Whenever Hangar Motion (Zone 17) becomes not secure then turn on hangar lights [3(A3)], Fade rate = 0 for 10 minutes This works great with a wired sensor set to burgler interior. With a wireless it works if set to non-alarm (considering the 3 minute timeout if there was prior motion). When set to burgler interior it won't turn on the lights, but will set off the alarm if armed away. BTW, I'm using an ISY99 and Insteon lights. Regards, Ed

So the ISY99 is actually controlling the lights? In ElkRP under Globals G29-G42 make sure All Six ASCII Serial Port 0 items are checked and sent to the control.
