The Ooma Motion Sensor works with the Ooma Home Security Mobile App to alert you of any unexpected movement in your home. Perfect for use in hallways, large rooms and even your garage, the Ooma Motion Sensor can detect motion or the lack thereof, even in the dark. It can also be mounted on the wall or with the included stand, giving you plenty of flexibility with your home security setup.
The following items are included in the Motion Sensor package:
The first time you set up the Motion Sensor, you will need to pair it with your Ooma Telo. If you’re a first-time Ooma Telo customer, you can find out more about setting up your Ooma account by clicking here.
Once the Motion Sensor is paired, make sure that the tamper sensor is pressed down and decide where you would like to install it. There are many different installation methods for the Ooma Motion Sensor:
The Motion Sensor is not weatherproof, so it should be mounted indoors in a dry location. If you are interested in outdoor home security protection, check out the Ooma Smart Cam, our 100 % weatherproof and wireless security camera.
The wireless signal between the Motion Sensor and Telo can be blocked by metals, so avoid mounting it on a metal surface such as a refrigerator or water heater.
The Motion Sensor has an approximate battery life of 1.5 years. You will receive a notification immediately when a sensor has low battery life. In addition, you will receive notifications via the app every Wednesday and Saturday until the battery is replaced.
The Motion Sensor is designed to be battery-powered so that it can be installed anywhere.
