If it’s 3-5 minutes to reset detection! Aah! Well, is that a motion sensor? That’s ADT.

GoControl default is 3 mins, with the custom device type it can be set to 1 min.

And my initial rough guess was wrong, motion reset is only 30 secs for iris motion sensor:

moments ago DEVICE motion active Thing detected motion true
2015-09-29 6:53:34.169 PM CDT
moments ago DEVICE motion inactive Thing motion has stopped true

wondering if the battery will be drained out quickly as the motion reset quicker.

No proofs here but in theory it should decrease faster, which is why most manufacturer’s go with a higher reset interval…

Not sure which ones you use. I have been using ST’s for approximately one year and fibaros’s for little less and have yet to change the batteries on either.

I have the PEQ from BB which from what I understand is the same as the SmartThings motion sensor and it seems to reset at 30 seconds and the battery seems really good with it.

Nope, both v2 and v3 centralites are 10 seconds…

I like the size of the new Iris motion Sensor!!

Funny thing is that there is way more discussion on the Smartthings forum about these sensors than the few people that actually use the Living with Iris Forum.

+1 on this, seems the iris motion sensor form are not sore in the eyes.
wife will be happier with quicker respond, just need to try out and keep an eye out with regards to battery life.

It’s very similar in size to the new generation of the smartthings motion sensor. The photo above is comparing the older version.

This is really cool. I hope they update that doorbell button to work with ST. For $20 those things could have a million uses.

And I thought my wife was crazy with 4 pair of shoes because the shoes were 70% off. Now I know how she feels.

I would be curious how the Iris motion sensor handles pets. I have a 50lb dog and if this can not detect that and still work, I am buying these! They are small!! Any feedback on the ST motions and pet detection?

I have a 25 lb dog and the new ST motion detectors do “see” him, killed using the sensors in the kitchen for me.

Darn! Are there any sensors that are good at not detecting animals? I see @smart also mentioned Fibaros. I really need one that is consistent about not being triggered by animals. If it doesn’t exist I can just wait for now

Not sure if it can handle dog situation but the sensitivity can be adjusted. Not a dog owner.

Tell me about it…just when I thought I was done, this happens… I’m making up crazy excuses for getting these, like refrigerator open/close/temp sensors, motion in closets turning lights on/off, etc… Oh wait, I think I will do that!
