Turnip Motion sensor alarms when motion is sensed or when the external contact is opened. It is battery powered and requires no installation tools. A Pyroflex™ sensor with HighBar™ signal processing allows for industry-leading pet immunity and catch performance. 


Install using the included 3M™ VHB™ tape to adhere the motion sensor on a wall or in a corner. The tape should be applied to the back when wall mounting or to the back bevels when corner mounting. Alternatively, screw-mounting can be done by punching out the screw mount holes. 

3M™ VHB™ Tape works great if the surface is properly prepared and firm pressure is applied for over 10 seconds.

Make sure to clean the surface before installing the sensors.

Pet immunity is optimized when the motion sensor is mounted at 7.5 to 9.5 feet high and aimed away from house features that could allow pets to be high in the detection field (e.g. stairs, countertops, tall furniture). 

Motion catch performance is best when the motion sensor is positioned so a person would typically walk across the front of the motion sensor instead of directly toward the motion sensor. 


• Mount 7.5 to 9.5 feet from the floor for an optimal balance between catch performance and pet immunity. 

• Remove the cover and circuit board before trying to punch out the screw mounting holes. 

• Ensure the bug foam stays intact and snug around the IR sensing element when re-installing the circuit board.
