Device Configuration

The following table provides a summary of the configuration parameters available in the EZMotion Express Wireless 3-in-1 Sensor. Detailed information on each parameter can be found below.

Parameter Description
1: Sensitivity Sensitivity sets the amount of motion required for EZMotion to detect motion.
2: On Time Sets the number of minutes the lights stay on when motion has not been detected.
3: LED On/Off LED ON/OFF turns the LED on or off.
4: Light Threshold Light Threshold is the % of light above which the lights will not be turned on.
5: Stay Awake Setting Stay Awake value
6: On Value The value sent by the Z-Wave BASIC_SET command when motion is detected.

1: Sensitivity

Sensitivity sets the amount of motion required for EZMotion to detect motion.

Overview

Sensitivity sets the amount of motion required for EZMotion to detect motion. A higher value makes it more sensitive and a lower value makes it less sensitive. Note that values above 200 are not recommended when EZMotion is battery operated.

Recommended values:

10 = Pet Immune
100 = Medium sensitivity for hallways
200 = Highly sensitive for rooms where people are sitting still 

Property Value
Configuration ID config_1_1
Data Type INTEGER
Range 0 to 255
Default Value 200

2: On Time

Sets the number of minutes the lights stay on when motion has not been detected.

Overview

On Time sets the number of minutes that the lights stay on when motion has not been detected.
A value of 0 On Time is a special mode where the lights are constantly sent a command to turn them on whenever motion is detected. EZMotion will NOT turn the lights off in this mode. Note that this mode will significantly shorten battery life.

Recommended values:

5 min for hallways
20 min for an office environment
60 min for a library or other room where someone may be sitting still for a long time 

Property Value
Configuration ID config_2_1
Data Type INTEGER
Range 0 to 255
Default Value 20

3: LED On/Off

LED ON/OFF turns the LED on or off.

Overview

LED ON/OFF turns the LED on or off. A slight improvement in battery life is obtained by turning the LED off. Setting LED ON/OFF to zero will turn the LED off and 255 turns it on. 

Property Value      
Configuration ID config_3_1      
Data Type INTEGER   Default Value 255
Options Off (0)      
  On (255)      

4: Light Threshold

Light Threshold is the % of light above which the lights will not be turned on.

Overview

Light Threshold is the percentage of light in the room above which the lights will not be turned on. Light Threshold is often used in room with a lot of natural daylight. Setting Light Threshold to a value of 50% will cause EZMotion to not turn the lights on when the natural light in the room is already at the 50% value. This feature only prevents the lights from coming on when motion is first detected and the light level in the room is already above Light Threshold. It will not turn the lights off when the amount of natural light in the room increases. It will automatically turn on the lights in a room that has motion in it and that the amount of natural light has dropped below Light Threshold.

A value of 100% turns off this feature.

Recommended values:

Usually a value between 40% and 60% will prevent the lights from coming on in a reasonably well light room and will turn them on as it is getting dark. Some experimentation is required with each room to determine the proper setting. 

Property Value
Configuration ID config_4_1
Data Type INTEGER
Range 0 to 255
Default Value 100

5: Stay Awake

Setting Stay Awake value

Overview

Setting Stay Awake to a non-zero value will cause EZMotion to always be awake. NOTE: this mode should NOT be used when EZMotion is battery powered! Batteries will only last a few days in this mode.

Stay Awake is NOT set to the factory default (0) when EZMotion is Excluded (reset) from the Z-Wave network.
Setting Stay Awake to a non-zero value will cause the Z-Wave Listening Bit to be set. EZMotion will become a routing node in the Z-Wave Mesh-Network when the Listening Bit is set.

To properly have EZMotion included in the routing tables, set Stay Awake to a non-zero value, then reset EZMotion (Exclude from the network), then add it back to the network. The new routing information will be used now that the listening bit is set. 

Property Value
Configuration ID config_5_1
Data Type INTEGER
Range 0 to 255
Default Value 0

6: On Value

The value sent by the Z-Wave BASIC_SET command when motion is detected.

Overview

On Value is the value sent by the Z-Wave BASIC_SET command when motion is detected.
A value of 0 will turn the lights off (not recommended).
A value between 1 and 100 will set the dim level to between 1% and 100%.

A value of 255 will turn the light on. 

Property Value
Configuration ID config_6_1
Data Type INTEGER
Range 0 to 255
Default Value 255
