Have you tried removing the sensor from the zone it was assigned to and then adding it back to the same zone number?

I could only find in the manual how to clear memory of all zones.  How do you clear only a specific zone?

Thanks!  I think I kept missing it because it was under the installation section. 

By the way, two of the sensors that I replace the NiMh batteries with alkalines showed low battery again this morning.  This is getting very frustrating.

That is not what I wanted to hear.  Is it difficult to get X10 to replace the console under warranty?

You should not have a problem. X10 has a pretty liberal return policy.

Help me understand this.  On my friends SC1200 console, two of the four installed DS10A sensors would always show low battery.  The other two DS10A sensors were ok.  I replaced them with two unused DS10A sensors, and all is well.  Ok, I thought I had a couple of defective sensors.  I took them home (along with the batteries that were in them) and registered on my SC1200 console.  After over a week, I have not gotten the low battery warning from these sensors.  Any explanation or insights as to why they show low battery on one console, but not on mine?
