Heat and Motion Detector
« on: March 23, 2009, 09:32:09 PM »

OK I just made the mod that can be found here http://forums.x10.com/index.php?topic=17748.0 to extend the range of my DS7000 it worked great now I'm able to arm and disarm my system from the neighbors house two doors down.

With this new found range I decided to install one of my extra Motion Detector in my shed along with a power horn.  Now the sensor works great for now but, I'm not sure with the heat we get here in AZ.

Does anyone know, how the heat will affect the sensor? Will it cause false alarms? and if I need to de-install this sensor is their any way to do it without uninstalling all the sensors and having to re-setup the whole system?

Oh and when the unit is set to chime mode. Do the newer Motion Detector not set of the chime? I know that my old one will but it's probably 12 old. Or code it be that's it's set to (zone 9)?
 
Thanks,

Steve >!
