Eagle Eye

I have an Eagle Eye Sensor which I setup to
turn on/off a light.

It appears to work in the living room...
where I setup and plugged in the USB
Computer Interface.

When I take it into the bedroom...  it
doesn't seem to work.

Question:  Does the sensor have to be close
to the USB Interface to work?  If the
answer is yes...   do I need a Repeater to
extend the range so it works in a distant
room?   We're talking maybe 50 ft from the
Interface to the sensor and an additional
15 feet to the lamp I wish to turn on...
which is in the bedroom.

You are using the cm15a USB Interface as the
receiver for the motion sensor? It is not
known for great recpetion distance of
signals. First I would try the cm15a antenna
horizontal. That sometimes adds distance.
The interface was not moved after the
original test, just the motion sensor?
