I have a downstairs hallway that’s perhaps 12 feet long, with a doorway to a spiral staircase at one end (where the picture is taken from) and a door into the garage on the other end. As you can see in the picture, there’s a jog in the hallway. Not seen here are another doorway about 4 feet to the right of the one by the staircase, a bedroom door to the left at a 45-degree angle (you can just make out a bit of the trim on the corner of the wall, near the top), and a laundry room doorway on the right as you go through the jog.
The hallway is dark and I want to automatically turn on the lights when I come off the stairway or enter from the garage. I have an Ecolink motion sensor and I’ve tried placing it in each of the four locations marked with circles. (The two near the top are on the hallway side of the door, of course.) All four locations have a clear line of sight to the area I want covered. I’ve mounted it with the long axis vertical, and horizontal. Occasionally the lights will go on very quickly - but most of the time, I can walk the entire length of the hall before the lights go on. Sometimes, I’ve even had to stop at the end of the hallway and “dance around” a bit before it “sees” me - and I’m not a small guy. The pet immunity jumpers on the sensor are OFF.
Any suggestions on placement? Or will this particular sensor not do the job and I need to use a different brand?
