    Z-Wave Plus PIR Motion Detector with Temperature Sensor, NO LOGO

    Z-Wave Plus PIR Motion Detector

    This passive infrared (PIR) sensor detects motion and sends a Z-Wave® trigger signal to the network. It also detects changes in temperatures and reports the temperature to the network whenever a significant change has occurred. It also has a tamper-proof switch, which will trigger a Z-Wave signal when the cover is removed. These trigger signals can be used to activate various other devices and perform preprogrammed tasks. When the sensor is included into a secured Z-Wave network, all communications will be encrypted using AES encryption.

    Easy to Install

    Motion Detection: This device uses a passive infrared sensor and sends a Z-Wave Plus® signal when motion is detected within its detection range. It can detect moving objects within line of sight at distances up to 32 feet, away with a field of view up to 120° This trigger signal can then be used to activate various other devices and perform preprogrammed tasks.

    Temperature Sensor: This sensor detects changes in temperature and reports the temperature to the network whenever a significant change has occurred.

    Z-Wave Plus: Z-Wave Plus® devices act as signal repeaters for the Z-Wave Plus network, so multiple devices result in more possible transmission routes, which helps eliminate RF "dead spots" in the network. Any Z-Wave Plus enabled device displaying the Z-Wave Plus logo can be used with Z-Wave Plus devices from other manufacturers.

    Easy to Install: This sensor comes with everything you need to install it into an existing Z-Wave Plus network, including mounting screws, adhesive tape and a battery.

    Low Power

    Z-Wave Plus is a low power mesh networking communications technology that allows Z-Wave Plus enabled devices to communicate with each other and to distribute Z-Wave Plus messages throughout the network.

    Backwards Compatible

    Z-Wave Plus products are fully backward compatible with classic Z-Wave products. Z-Wave Plus has longer battery life, faster operation, better RF coverage, and easier installation.

    Will this work with Wink 2? I see one reviewer saying it didn't work with the original Wink.
    Robert T on Feb 5, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Confirmed with monoprice and wink. Only the temp sensors works with the wink 2 at this time. The motions sensor does not.
    Why don't you provide the SmartThings device handler to make this product fully compatible with a SmartThings hub?

    Can't get it paired with Vera Edge controller. Have tried pushing button 1x and 10x. Anyone have any suggestions?
    A shopper on Dec 3, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: All I know is that I got it working with a Vera Edge controller. I would start from the beginning, and/or perhaps try deleting the device, and resetting the unit by holding in the include/exclude button for 30 seconds or more. Then try again. It worked for me eventually. Also, try Vera support -- it's probably on their side if you're having difficulties.
    How to determine firmware using HomeSeer 3? How to update firmware? Where do you get firmware?
    Dave K on Dec 13, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Sorry, I don't know, I'm on Vera+ and haven't connected it yet.
    What are the dimensions of this sensor?
    Joseph B on Nov 27, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: It's 2-5/16 wide, 3-5/16 high, and 1-7/8 deep at the deepest point. That's 60mm x 84mm x 49mm. There is a separate mounting bracket - a flat piece of white plastic with curved sides - that adds about 2-5mm of depth depending on whether you screw it in or use tape.
    Can this be configured to ignore pets in the home?
    A shopper on Dec 19, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Yes. I have a large cat that triggers all "non-pet" detector. This one has a sensitivity switch, although it's poorly documented in the manual that comes with the unit.
    For Vera Lite, I was able to add it but unable to get this sensor function. Any ideas?
    A shopper on Mar 17, 2017
    Can this be used outdoors under a covered deck?
    A shopper on Nov 30, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: I have this setup outside under my covered patio and it works great. However it is not exposed to many elements such as rain or snow.
    I see that there is a way to adjust the sensitivity on these sensors, but how do you do it??? The manual provides no instructions whatsoever.
    Minh T on Mar 19, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: There are pins inside the unit that you connect to activate pet1 or pet2 sensitivity.
    I cannot get this device to connect. Does anyone have any more detailed instructions on how to setup?
    Robert A on Apr 29, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Just paired this unit yesterday. Had some difficulty getting my Smartthings Hub to recognize it. Finally separated the Hub and unit by about 1 meter and it paired. Keep pushing the program button after about 5 to 10 seconds. The unit sends an identification signal only for a short time. Good Luck
    Is additional s/w (i.e. RBoy Apps) required to simply report temp and humidity to a Samsung SmartThings hub? Can those values be accessed via the SmartThings App?
    Harris G on Oct 14, 2017
    I tried to pair this with a Wink 2 Hub. It seems to connect, but comes up as a 'generic sensor', and seems to be an entry-type sensor instead of motion detector. The only choices via wink are 'window', 'door', 'cabinet', and 'patio door'. I also bought an entry sensor, so will try to connect that one to see what happens. Any hints appreciated?
    Anthony T on Jun 26, 2017

    Thank you
    what's the polling rate on the motion sensor? I have a GE portable motion sensor that triggers (motion active), and doesn't poll again for 4 minutes (motion stopped) (not configurable through winK), and that is near useless for automation.
    A shopper on Jun 19, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure of the EXACT polling rate but I know it's not 4 minutes between polling. If I walk past the sensor I can see the LED 'light up'. If I walk out of it's field of vision and then walk back into it, the LED lights up again. So it's not an issue.
    I have this set up under one of my eaves on the front porch. It's in a covered corner and maybe 10 feet off the ground, it's pointed right at my front door. 8/10, it will not detect motion, even if I'm jumping up and down. It seems to detect motion best when I'm on end of the porch furthest away from it. Anything closer than 6 feet it doesn't seem to detect. Does anyone have any ideas? Is it a sensitivity issue? Is it too cold outside? It's about 50 degrees F right now so it's not freezing.
    A shopper on Dec 11, 2017
    What is the battery life of this unit? In addition to motion and temperature, does this unit share the battery state with the controller?
    George W on Dec 19, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: I can see battery capacity being reported. I haven't had this unit for long, so it's hard to tell how long battery will last. So far, I've had it for about two months, and battery reports as 100% (in my experience, these devices report battery status in "chunks" -- I expect it to suddenly drop from 100% to 80% or so, eventually). Note that temperature reporting is so so -- The unit appears to "sleep" to conserve battery and only wakes up once every X minutes to update the temperature measurements (but don't worry, motion detection is always instant).
    How do you change the temperature from C to F?
    Jason G on Dec 23, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The MonoPrice 15271 Z-Wave Plus PIR Motion/Temp sensor reports changes of +-2 degrees C, by default. This can be changed to Fahrenheit by sending a Z-Wave Command_Class_Configuration command. It's documented on pages 5-6 of the included manual. In my case the Samsung SmartThings hub set it automatically when the sensor was added to my environment.
    Does this sensor provide continuous motion detection or (to conserve on battery power) does it have a delay after a motion detection event is registered before it will register motion detection again?
    A shopper on Nov 14, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It doesn't register continuously but it does activate immediately when it senses motion (on state). The unit will then look for motion again 60 seconds later. If there is still motion it will stay in the "on state" and will then check again in 60 seconds. If there is no motion during this check then it sends the "off state". It then waits until is sees motion and then starts the process over.
    Has anyone successfully paired this unit with a Vera-lite controller? Any issues? I saw one review that said it took their network down but I am wondering if others have had success?
    A shopper on Apr 8, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I use thse with both the newest Vera Plus and several Vera 3s. I am running UI7 on all. I don't have a Vera-lite but assume if you are running UI7, it would work as it does with my systems.
    What is the motion detection delay on this device? i.e. what is the elapsed time between when you move in front of the sensor and when it reports the event over z-wave?
    New User U on Mar 17, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The ones I got were pretty good. I didn't time it but I would say within a second or two at the most. I read before that others experience a lot longer delay.
    Does it work with Indigo HA Software?
    michael m on Mar 8, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Neither of the devices I received pair with my zwave controllers.
    will these work with Amazon Alexa?
    Robert B on Jan 8, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: it is just a sensor providing information about motion and temperature. I have not used it yet.
    It has to be integrated with a home automation system with zwave and the system should be able to connect to Alexa.
    Are the pics posted here, are upside down? I thought the light will be on the top...
    Govinda Raja N on Apr 10, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Looking into the photos, a couple of them are upside down. The light will be on the top of the unit when installed.

    Is this compatible with Amazon Echo?
    Chris B on Dec 19, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, thank you for your question. This sensor is not directly compatible with Amazon Echo devices and will need a Z-wave controller/hub as a middle device to which the Echo can connect to and access information from the sensor.

    Good value motion sensor for SmartThings
    As others reported, I had some difficulty with the initial pairing because the pairing instructions said to press the button once to put into pairing mode for 10 seconds and repeat until pairing occurred. Instead had to press pairing button on back 10x to get sensor to pair with hub.

    Once paired the motion and temperature sensors worked well. There are adjustments for sensitivity settings, but they are currently not available in the SmartThings app.

    PROS: + Z-wave plus
    + integrated temperature monitor
    + Mounting bracket works in corners and on flat surfaces

    CONS: - Has jumper posts for different sensitivities to avoid activation by pets, but does not include necessary jumper or description of jumper settings. After pairing, sensitivity settings were not present in SmartThings app and therefore could not be adjusted programmatically.
    - Pairing description was confusing because did not pair when pairing button pressed 1x. Had to press 10x in quick succession before device paired with SmartThings v2 hub.
    - Manual describes updating firmware, but does not include instruction on how to make the update occur with SmartThings or other Z-wave hub. This may be a Z-Wave Plus feature that is still in the works for SmartThings.

    Motion sensor works as expected, but temperature does not
    The motion sensor works as expected. The sensitivity setting is enough to avoid triggering on our large cat. The temperature sensor, however, is a different story: It appears this device "sleeps" to conserve battery (good) but in going so, it responds with the last known temperature. The end result is that if you graph your temperature from this sensor, your graph will show with huge steps, and not a smooth line showing temperature changes across time. If you don't care for temperature, it's a good motion sensor. Let's see how long the battery will last.

    Still Great After 18 Months
    Bought a pair of these to monitor a Florida Condo in October 2015. One inside. One outside under a covered deck. Using with Vera Edge. Furthest one probably 80 feet away. Both still working well as of 4/2017. Were not hard to include (no harder than anything else) in the Vera Edge interface. A little tricky getting the temperature and motion aspects to show up in the right user interface panels but that's Vera, not the product.

    One of my devices -- the inside one oddly -- stopped responding. I took it down, and pressed the include / exclude button for 30 seconds, thinking it might reset. Whatever that did it solved the problem -- device re-included without any further action required on my part. So, try that if you have a non-responding item.

    What can I say: good price, works well. Highly recommended.

    Working fine with SmartThings
    Had minor difficulty doing the initial pairing that could have been just user error on my part. I'm using it for the garage to trigger lighting.
    Installation was easy using the screws (or double-stick tape) provided. I may buy a second one for the same area just to improve reaction time as there is no ideal location to cover both bays and the rear/side doors. Still experimenting with it as a general room occupancy detector - the wide 120 degree range should be good for this.

    Difficult/Impossible To Pair On Homeseer System
    If you're using a HomeSeer system, these are not the PIR devices for you. It was difficult to pair them to my system. And after pairing, I get strange motion events, NO battery information and temperatures that seem to defy logic. I was really hopeful when I saw that this was a Z-Wave Plus, but was completely disappointed with its performance.

    Sensitivity adjustment?
    Works great with my samsung smartthings hub. Only problem is the device handler does not allow you to set the sensitivity. My guess is that someone on the smartthings community will eventually provide this feature.

    Works great with Vera Plus after configuration change
    This motion/temp sensor paired pretty easy with Vera Plus. But the temperature reporting was strange. Only reported the temperature after a 3.6 degree Fahrenheit change. At first I thought this was just a method to save on batteries. But after trying various configuration changes, found out the reason for this behavior. The default unit was configured for Celsius and to report on +/- 2 degree changes. Vera Plus knew it was configured for Celsius and converted it to Fahrenheit. So, a plus 2 degree change in C is equal to a 3.6 degree change in F.

    Here are the default configuration parameters:

    Parameter 1 3 motion reset time (minutes)
    Parameter 2 0 0 = celsius 1 = fahrenheit
    Parameter 3 4 motion sensitivity
    Parameter 4 0 Temperature offset
    Parameter 5 2 Temperature report +/- change

    First I changed Parameter 5 to 1 and sure enough, the device started reporting after 1.8 degree of change. Next I changed Parameter 2 to 1. Now it reports after 1 degree of change. Vera Plus is smart enough to know the device is now reporting in Fahrenheit so no conversion is needed.

    Great value. I'm planning on getting more of these devices.

    Doesn't work
    The unit came packages in a generic white box. It included the sensor, wall mount and 123a battery and instruction sheet. The instructions are very basic and broken English. They are also not inclusive. No where does the instructions mention the pin settings for the motion sensitivity or test mode. The pairing instructions are also incomplete or not correct. The device is advertised as a z wave motion detector with temperature sensor. I used a popular Wink Hub and followed the instructions. I could not get the hub to recognise the monoproce device as a motion sensor. It appears as a door sensor and the status is never updated. The temperature sensor does respond But not is always I accurate by several degress making the product worthless. I would not recommend this device with a wink hub. I haven't tried other z wave systems.

    This sensor works great, after clicking the pair button it showed up instantly in my SmartThings setup. Very responsive and includes temp sensor as well. Great deal.

    Works great with SmartThings (thanks RBoy)
    I'm using this with SmartThings to keep the lights on while I'm in my office. I already use RBoy's device handlers, so adding this one was a breeze. It is nice to be able to adjust motion sensitivity and inactivity timeout from directly in the SmartThings app.
