Important safety information
Read this manual before attempting to install the device!
Failure to observe recommendations included in this manual may be dangerous or cause a violation of the law. The manufacturer, Fibar Group S.A. will not be held responsible for any loss or damage resulting from not following the instructions of the operating manual.
Apple HomeKit technology provides an easy, secure way to control HomeKit-enabled accessories using Siri on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.
After installing your FIBARO Motion Sensor, configure it from a compatible app with just a few simple steps.
You can even create your own custom scenes to control your home settings. For example, you can create a scene to automatically turn off the lights, lock your doors, close the garage door, and set the thermostat to the desired temperature in just one step.
To control this HomeKit-enabled accessory, iOS 9.3.5 or later is recommended.
Controlling this HomeKit-enabled accessory automatically and away from home requires an Apple TV with tvOS 9.2 or later or an iPad with iOS 9.3 or later set up as a home hub.
#1: Description and features
FIBARO Motion Sensor is a HomeKit-enabled multi-sensor using Bluetooth® low energy technology.
Along with detecting motion, the accessory measures the ambient temperature and light intensity.
The sensor has a built-in accelerometer to detect any tampering with the accessory.
FIBARO Motion Sensor is battery-powered and designed to be installed quickly and easily on any surface.
The eye-shaped LED indicator signals motion, temperature level, tampering and can be used to identify the accessory.
Main features of FIBARO Motion Sensor:
- compatible with Apple HomeKit technology
- Bluetooth® low energy technology for wireless communication
- detects motion using a passive IR sensor
- measures ambient temperature
- measures light intensity
- detects tampering using an accelerometer
- easy installation
- maybe installed anywhere – wall or any surface
- indicates state using multicolor LED diode
Remember to use only the battery type specified in the manual and keep the right polarity.
If the accessory blinks green after powering, it is already paired and has to be reset to pair again.
#2: Powering the accessory
- Turn the cover counter-clockwise and open it.
- Remove the battery blocker and check if the battery is placed correctly.
- The accessory will glow red – it is ready to be paired.
- Close the cover and turn it clockwise, dots on the casing should align.
#3: Pairing the accessory
- Open the Settings app on your iOS device.
- Go to the Bluetooth® section, and turn the Bluetooth® on.
- Place the accessory next to your iOS device.
- Open a HomeKit compatible app of your choosing on your iOS device.
- Open pairing window in your HomeKit app to detect available accessories.
- Choose a Motion Sensor you wish to pair.
- You can identify it – Motion Sensor will triple blink blue 3 times.
- Find HomeKit Setup Code on the last page of Quick Start Guide included in the box that looks like this:
- Start pairing with your HomeKit app.
- Point your iOS device’s camera at the Setup Code to scan it or enter the Setup Code manually.
- If entered Setup Code is valid, the device will complete the setup process.
- Follow the instructions displayed in the application.
Remember to keep your HomeKit Setup Code in a safe place. You may need it in case of repairing.
#4: Physical installation
Installing the Motion Sensor:
- Install the holder (using an expansion bolt or a sticker).
- Insert the device into the holder.
- Test the operation – check whether the accessory indicates motion detection.
Installation location and working conditions:
The Motion Sensor should be installed in a corner of the room or perpendicularly to the doors.
Moving objects such as trees blowing in the wind, cars passing by, household fans, and moving masses of air and heat within the detection area of the sensor can cause false motion detection.
The detection range of the Motion Sensor is shown below. The actual range of the Sensor can be influenced by environmental conditions.
Resetting the Motion Sensor to factory defaults:
The reset procedure allows restoring the accessory back to its factory settings including HomeKit pairing.
- Open the cover.
- Press and hold the button.
- wait for the LED indicator to glow yellow.
- Release the button.
- Click the button to confirm.
- The accessory will glow red to confirm reset.
- Delete the accessory from the app before pairing it again.
The accessory measures temperature in the place of installation. Remember that the temperature near the ceiling may differ from that on eye-levelor the floor.
The accessory measures light intensity in the place of installation, not where the sensor is pointed.
The Motion Sensor detects movement using a PIR sensor and reports it to your iOS device.
The blink of the LED indicates detected motion. The color of the blink is dependent on the current ambient temperature (smooth transition through blue, green, and red). The brightness of the blink is adjusted by measured light intensity.
The Motion Sensor detects tampering when the accessory is moved and reports it to your iOS device. Tampering is indicated with an alternate blinking in red, blue, and white.
The Motion Sensor measures ambient temperature every 5 minutes.
If the measured temperature differs from previously reported by at least 2°C (3.6°F), the accessory reports it to your iOS device.
Battery level measuring:
The Motion Sensor measures battery level every 24 hours and reports it to your iOS device. Additionally, if the battery level is below 15%, the accessory will report low-level battery status to your iOS device.
Light intensity measuring:
The Motion Sensor measures light intensity. If the measured light intensity differs from previously reported by at least 200 lux, accessory reports it to your iOS device.
PIR sensor malfunction detection (Fault Code 1):
The Motion Sensor detects malfunction of PIR sensor (responsible for motion detection) and reports it to your iOS device.
Getting Fault Code 1 warning means that the accessory is damaged and should be returned to the distributor for the warranty (if still valid).
#7: Configurable parameters
- Motion detection – sensor sensitivity
This parameter allows setting the sensitivity of the PIR sensor used for motion detection.
The higher the value of this parameter, the higher the sensitivity.
Available settings: 1 – low sensitivity
2 – medium sensitivity
Default setting: 2 (medium sensitivity)
- Tamper – sensor sensitivity
This parameter allows setting the sensitivity of tamper detection.
The higher the value of this parameter, the higher the sensitivity.
Available settings: 0 – tamper disabled
Default setting: 2 (medium sensitivity)
- Motion detection – LED indication
This parameter allows choosing how the LED indicator will behave after detecting motion.
Available settings: 0 – LED indications disabled Default setting: 1 (color dependent on temperature)
