Motion Sensor > 20' range
« on: April 11, 2005, 10:14:05 AM »

Does anyone know of an X10 motion sensor
that has a range of more than 20'? Also,
what is the life of the battery on these
eagle eye sensors.

I have an Active Eye and two Eagle Eye
motion sensors. I get more then 20' of range
with the use of a dedicated TM751.
I read that the battery life is > 6 months.

Have you tried the passive antenna trick? A small piece of wire horizontaly above or behind the motion sensor.) http://www.idobartana.com/hakb/index.htm

I've got one outside my garage and my
driveway is 70' long and I had to adjust
the position of the MS because it was being
triggered by passing cars.
