Will a dog or cat set off my 5800PIR-RES motion detector?

Last Updated: 11/19/2013

You can program the detector to ignore animals under 80 pounds.

The 5800PIR-RES has a pet immunity function already installed, which can be engaged when the device is programmed to loop one of your Honeywell Control Panel. Pet immunity will only function properly if the motion sensor is mounted at its recommended height of 7.5-8 feet off the ground. Also, this setting will not work correctly if the motion detector is mounted using a mounting bracket or a look-down mirror. Find a place to mount the sensor where animals can never come closer than six feet from the sensor. If you have pets that like to climb on certain pieces of furniture, be sure the detector is aimed away from those pieces.
