How do I adjust the sensitivity of a 5800PIR motion detector?

Last Updated: 11/20/2013

The 5800PIR-RES has two settings: Low Sensitivity and High Sensitivity.

To set the detector on low sensitivity, program the device as Loop 1. This is the pet immunity mode. Pet immunity guards against false alarms triggered by household pets, like cats and dogs, under 80 pounds. Increasing the detector's sensitivity requires users to program the device to Loop 2. This sensitivity disables the pet immunity function.
