How to configure the D3D PIR Motion sensor?

D3D PIR Motion Sensor

In a smart security system, the PIR motion sensor has a very vital role to play. The motion sensor when installed in the restricted areas of your home or areas that require higher security, will let you know instantly if there is any unwanted movement taking place.

Just like the door/window sensor, the motion sensor too registers and unwanted movement, sends the information to the main unit which in turn will raise a alarm in the form of siren, call or SMS as per your configuration. This helps you act instantly on time and take the necessary corrective measure.

The D3D motion sensor comes in a enclosed plastic package with a screen to its front section to detect the motion.

Step 1: Unscrew the motion sensor unit, an open the enclosed package. Here, you will be exposed to an electronic circuit which is the brain of the sensor. Attach the 9V battery placed inside the enclosure to the mating part (or cap) and place the battery in the area allocated to it.

The Red LED in the circuit will blink several times confirming that both the battery and the sensor is working.

The electronic circuit consist of several jumpers which can be set by the user as per their need.

Step 2: Turn on the main control unit. In the Menu section go to Setup–>Edit Zones–>Edit RF Detector. In the Edit RF section, you can configure various kind of security sensor that come along with the D3D system. The first option of Delete All is common in case you want to delete all the configured sensors in your system.

The D3D D9 security system allows you to configure 99 different sensors.

Step 3: Go to the Empty option and press Enter key. Here, you will provided with two options of Add and Delete. Click on Add.

Since you have entered the Empty option, it means that there is no device configured on that option at that moment. In case, for any option the device is configured, you will see the Used status in place of Empty.

Step 4: Once you click on Add option, the display on the main control unit will ask you to Turn On Device. Here “Device” means your sensor unit you want to configure. This can be a remote, smoke sensor, motion sensor, door/windows sensor etc.

Here by Turn on Device, it means trigger the sensor action. Once this message appears, initiate a motion in front of the sensor screen by waving your hand. The Red “Alarm” LED will blink and a RF Code will be transmitted wirelessly to the main control unit.

Once the code appears on the display screen of the main control unit, press Enter key. Repeat the same action for second time confirmation and press Enter key again.

Step 5: Here you will be asked to select the Zone Type for the sensor as per your utility. [Read: Zone Type explanations for the D3D security system]

Step 6: After selection of your Zone Type, you will get an Operation OK message on the unit. Now the Empty status of the Zone location where you have configured this sensor will turn to be showing as Used.
