Ooma Motion Sensor installation instructions
You will find the following items included with the Ooma Motion Sensor:
- Ooma Motion Sensor
- Adhesive pads
- Stand attachment
- Mounting screws and drywall anchors
- CR123A battery
- Quick Start Guide
The first time you set up the Motion Sensor, you will need to pair it with your Telo Base Station. You can pair the sensor by following these instructions:
- Bring the sensor within ten feet of the Telo Base Station.
- Use the mobile app to press the “Add Sensor” button on the dashboard.
- Select the type of sensor you would like to pair.
- Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the pairing process.
Once the sensor is paired, make sure that the tamper sensor is pressed down and decide where you would like to install it. The motion sensor is not weatherproof, so it should be mounted indoors in a dry location. The wireless signal between the motion sensor and the Telo Base Station can be blocked by metals, so avoid mounting it on a metal surface such as a refrigerator or a water heater. Finally, keep in mind that the motion sensor can pick up on the movement of your household pets so you may wish to aim the sensor slightly above the floor when you install it.
There are many different installation methods for the Ooma Motion Sensor:
Adhesive tape installation
To install the motion sensor on a 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 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.
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.
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.
