Motion Sensor FAQs

What does a motion detector do?

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.

What comes with the Motion Sensor package?

The following items are included in the Motion Sensor package:

  • Ooma Motion Sensor
  • Adhesive pads
  • Stand attachment
  • Mounting screws and drywall anchors
  • CR123A battery
  • Quick Start Guide
How do I install the Motion Sensor?

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.

  1. Bring the sensor within 10 feet of the Telo.
  2. Use the Ooma Mobile App to press the “Add Sensor” button on the dashboard.
  3. Select the Motion Sensor.
  4. Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the pairing process.

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:

  • Adhesive tape installation: To install the Motion Sensor on the wall with the included adhesive tape, start by wiping the surface with a damp cloth to clean it. Dry the surface, and then peel the adhesive tape. Press one side of the tape to the sensor, and then press the sensor against the wall and hold it in place for 30 seconds.
  • Screw and drywall anchor installation: To install the Motion Sensor in drywall, start by using the mounting plate as a template to drill four holes that resemble the size of the included drywall anchor. Push the drywall anchors into the holes, and then screw the mounting plate into place. Reattach the sensor to the mounting plate.
  • Screw installation: To screw the sensor into a non-drywall surface, screw the mounting plate into the wall in the desired location. Reattach the sensor to the mounting plate.
  • Mount installation: You can place the motion sensor on any steady surface by mounting it into the included stand attachment. This installation method does not require adhesive pads or screws.
Can I mount the Motion Sensor outdoors?

The Motion Sensor is not weatherproof, so it should be mounted indoors in a dry location.

Are there any places I should avoid mounting the Motion Sensor indoors?

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.

What is the battery life of the Motion Sensor?

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.

Can the motion detector be plugged in?

The motion sensor is designed to be powered by battery so that it can be installed anywhere.

Does the motion detector work in the dark?

Yes. The motion sensor uses infrared technology to detect movement in the dark.

What is the field of view of the motion sensor?

The motion sensor has a field of view of approximately 85 degrees.

What is the distance range of the motion detector?

The motion sensor can sense movement up to 30-35 feet away, for a total coverage area between 670 and 900 square feet.

How frequently does the motion sensor sense new motion?

The motion sensor sends a new signal every two minutes when motion is detected.

Can the motion sensor ignore pet movement?

Currently, no. The motion detector can be triggered by the movement of household pets. However, releasing a patch to account for pets in on our roadmap.

What do the lights on the motion detector mean?

The motion sensor uses an LED light to indicate its status. Please see the chart below for more information about what each indicator type means:

What are my enabling options for the motion sensor?

You can use the Ooma Home Security mobile app to determine when the motion detector is enabled and when it is not. The app can also be configured to alert you when there has not been motion-detected for a certain amount of time. This can be useful if you are expecting someone in your home at a particular time.

You can learn more about the Ooma Mobile App by visiting the app’s FAQ page.

My Ooma Motion Detector is disconnected. What should I do?

If your motion detector is not connected, follow these troubleshooting steps:

  1. Make sure that the placement of your sensor encourages a better signal. Your sensor must be within 200 feet of your Telo to maintain a good connection. Avoid mounting your sensor near metal objects, which can obstruct the signal between your sensor and Telo.
  2. Check on the battery life of your sensor. Quickly tap the sensor’s pairing button. If the LED status indicator shows a solid, steady light for 5 seconds, your battery is in good shape. If it blinks for 5 seconds or does not light up at all, you will need to replace your sensor’s batteries. After replacing the batteries, tap the pairing button to alert your Telo base station to reconnect.
  3. If the steps above do not resolve the issue, try re-pairing the motion detector by pressing “+ Add Sensor” on the Ooma Home Security mobile app dashboard and choosing the type of sensor you want to re-pair. Follow the on-screen instructions.
  4. If none of these troubleshooting steps solve your issue, contact our Customer Care team.
