Properties
Time Of Last Communication: The most recent date and time that the device communicated with the controller.
Show Properties: Select ‘Show’ to make the other properties display their current states. It changes to ‘Hide’ after 1 hour to conserve resources.
Debug Mode: Select print to display data from the device in the Lua tab. It changes to ‘Off’ after 4 hours to conserve resources.
Motion Sensitivity: 12 – Most sensitive to motion. 0 – Least sensitive to motion.
Occupancy Hold Time: Once motion has been detected, it will not be detected again until it has ended, motion ends when there has been no motion for the amount of time listed in this property. Higher values will increase battery life.
Light – Force Transmit %: Amount of change in ‘Illumination %’ required between reports for the device to report a light change. Higher values or ‘Off’ will increase battery life.
Temp – Force Transmit Deg: Amount of change in ‘Temperature’ (degrees) required between reports for the device to report a temperature change. Higher values or ‘Off’ will increase battery life.
Humidity – Force Transmit %: Amount of change in ‘Relative Humidity %’ required between reports for the device to report a humidity change. Higher values or ‘Off’ will increase battery life.
Report Time: How often the device transmits its status. Higher values will increase battery life.
Motion in Day Mode: Set to ‘Disabled’ to ignore motion in Day mode. Setting to disabled will increase battery life.
Motion in Night Mode: Set to ‘Disabled’ to ignore motion in Night mode. Setting to disabled will increase battery life.
Mode: Current Day/Night Mode state.
Day Mode Level %: ‘Illumination %’ must be above ‘Day Mode Level %’ for ‘Day Mode Time’(minutes) before ‘Mode’ changes to ‘Day’
Day Mode Time (min): ‘Illumination %’ must be above ‘Day Mode Level %’ for ‘Day Mode Time’(minutes) before ‘Mode’ changes to ‘Day’
Night Mode Level %: ‘Illumination %’ must be below ‘Night Mode Level %’ for ‘Night Mode Time’ minutes) before ‘Mode’ changes to ‘Night’
Night Mode Time (min): ‘Illumination %’ must be below ‘Night Mode Level %’ for ‘Night Mode Time’(minutes) before ‘Mode’ changes to ‘Night’
Set Setup Mode: Setup mode state chosen by user. Device needs to wake up and communicate with composer before this setting can be sent to the device.
Setup Mode: Setup mode state of device. When device is in setup mode the LED blinks to acknowledge motion detects. ‘Occupancy Hold Time’ is set to 2 seconds while in setup mode. Setup mode turns off after 8 minutes.
Temperature Calibration: Adjusts ‘Temperature’ in composer.
Temperature Scale: Display temperature in ‘Fahrenheit’ or ‘Celsius’. This setting is used in
property ‘Temp – Force Transmit Deg’.
Temperature Display (deg): The resolution of ‘Temperature’ in composer.
Temperature: Temperature reported by device + ‘Temperature Calibration’ rounded by ‘Temperature Display (deg)’.
Relative Humidity %: Humidity reported by device. Only works for devices with humidity option installed.
Illumination %: Light level reported by device.
Report Flag: The cause of the previous report.
Motion Status: Changes to ended after motion ends and ‘Occupancy Hold Timer’ expires.
Battery State: ‘Operational’, ‘Low’, ‘Critical’, or ‘Dead’.
Battery Voltage: Reported voltage level of battery + temperature compensation. Low temperatures cause decrease in voltage level, ‘Battery Voltage’ is adjusted to compensate for this.
Battery Low Level: ‘Low Battery Warning’ is fired when ‘Battery Voltage’ is at this level. Warning is reset when new battery is installed.
Battery Critical Level: ‘Critical Battery Warning’ is fired when ‘Battery Voltage’ is at this level. Warning is reset when new battery is installed.
Device Firmware Version: Version of firmware in the device.
Driver Firmware Version: Version of firmware stored in the driver for the device. The driver can update the firmware in the device if these versions do not match.
Firmware Update Status: Status of firmware update. Select ‘Start Firmware Update’ in ‘Actions’ Tab to update firmware.
Update Start: Time update started.
Update End: Time update ended.
Driver Version: Version of Driver.
Maximize Battery Life
A device that is joined to a network, but out of range of the network may use extra battery power trying to find its network. See website support tab for replacement battery specs.The main properties that affect battery life are ‘Occupancy Hold Time’, ‘Report Time’, and the ‘Force Transmit’ properties.’Occupancy Hold Time’ is the first property you should adjust to increase battery life. It defaults to a low value so it’s easy to test during installation. Once motion detection has been reported, no more motion detects will be reported until motion end has been reported. Motion end will not be reported until there has been no motion for the amount of time listed in ‘Occupancy Hold Time’. Setting ‘Occupancy Hold Time’ to the highest value that will work for your application should increase battery life by having less reports for motion detects and ends.To maximize battery life, you should minimize the amount of reports from this device. Each report requires wireless communication which uses much more power than any other function of this device. This device will give a variety of reports including mandatory scheduled reports. The property ‘Report Time’ refers to how often the scheduled reports will occur. Set this to the maximum value to conserve batteries. The scheduled report contains data from all the sensors. Changes measured by the sensors can also trigger these reports. If a sensor’s value changes by more than it’s related ‘Force Transmit’ property in between scheduled reports, it will trigger a report. ‘Force Transmit’ properties are defaulted to ‘Off’ to maximize battery life.
