Re: INSTEON Motion Sensor

I feel like I have tried everything to change the flashing on these new motion sensor 2 units.

They are awesome motion sensors. They are super responsive, and with the USB power adapter the battery issue is gone.

However I have had to resort to covering the bedroom unit when I go to sleep because of the extremely bright LED flash for motion that in a dark room is crazy.

Anyone have any luck changing that setting? I have tried everything I can think of.

I can’t get the light to turn off either. I have tried through the Insteon app with no luck.

Don't know if this will work for you, but there is a raw command that turns off some pilot light type things (dimmer switches and fanlinks). I used it to turn off the LED's in my fan links to keep them from glowing in a dark room. Might be worth a try for the motion sensor.
Interfaces > Insteon/X10 Powerline > Execute Raw Insteon Command

Select Device from list
Command 1 Byte 0x20
Command 2 Byte 0x08 [turns them OFF] 0x09 [turns them ON]
Check "send extended message"

Running Indigo 7.1 on a headless Mac Mini (late 2012), 16G memory, 1TB 7200 RPM spinning drive, OS X 10.13.1

Re: INSTEON Motion Sensor

Tried that raw command and what it says I am executing does not match what I typed.

Tried on a ceiling fan and a motion sensor - results:

Error "Office - Sensor - Motion" raw insteon command; failed (checksum invalid)
INSTEON Commands Error Command didn't return successfully. Here's the command sent: [32, 8]

Error "Office - Light - Cieling Fan" raw insteon command; failed (checksum invalid)
Error "Office - Fan - Cieling" raw insteon command; failed (checksum invalid)
INSTEON Commands Error Command didn't return successfully. Here's the command sent: [32, 8]

Re: INSTEON Motion Sensor 2

I have a new insteon motion 2. I have out working to send on command to trigger light.
It seems to work well but two nights ago it started sending out a button 19 on command every 30 seconds to 1 minute.
Does anyone know what this is and how to stop it?

Thanks

Re: INSTEON Motion Sensor

I'm not sure what group/button 19 broadcasts mean from that module (the module's manual, unfortunately, isn't helpful in that regard). Did you try removing/reinstalling the batteries to see if that gets it to stop? If not I'd suggest you try a factory reset and then resync it with Indigo.

Re: INSTEON Motion Sensor

I just started getting those as well on a new motion sensor. What is that all about?

Re: INSTEON Motion Sensor

I have been out of town.
Reset did not work.
I bought an Insteon Hub to program motion since the Indigo support for it is suboptimal.
The button 19 on went away for a while then came back.

I have no problem with indigo as I receive the ON that i need to trigger a dog flood motion to go on. With a software off command.

The button 19 ever 30 seconds os annoying.

Please advise.

Thanks

Re: INSTEON Motion Sensor

I'm not sure what that group number is about. The newer motion sensor is poorly documented. We'll try to get the details from Smarthome again.

Re: INSTEON Motion Sensor

I'm going to try contacting Smarthome again for technical documentation, but in the mean time I suggest you call their customer support and/or post on this forum to see if you can find out how to prevent it from sending that message.
