X10 EagleEye Wireless Indoor/Outdoor Motion Sensor
Can Control X10 Receivers
The X10 Activehome EagleEye Wireless Indoor/Outdoor Motion Sensor (MS16A) works anytime, day or night, indoors or out! Automatically turn on an area of lights controlled by X10 modules.
- Weather resistant case protects the sensor from the elements.
- Locking screw prevents easy removal of batteries.
- Easily disable the dawn/dusk feature so it will work 24 hours/day!
- Adjustable time delay! Set the delay from 1 minute to 255 minutes! Now you can have the flexibility to have your lights, appliances, or even Macros turn off just 60 seconds after you leave the room or turn off the lights!
How It Works
The EagleEye Motion Sensor sends wireless Radio Frequency (RF) signals to an X10 Wireless Transceiver or any X10 security system base receiver. The Transceiver receives RF signals from the Motion Sensor and passes them onto your house wiring. The\e signals are then received by X10 lamp, appliance, or wall switch modules to control lights (or appliances) around your home.
If you set the EagleEye Motion Sensor to a unique code (House Code A and Unit Code 1), then walk into the room where the EagleEye Motion Sensor is located, a lamp module set to "A1" will turn on. As long as you keep moving, the light will stay on, and when you stop moving, the light turns off after the amount of time you select.
The signals transmitted onto your house wiring can also be received by the two-way Computer Interface to initiate macros. The Computer Interface then performs a sequence of events that you've set it up to do.
Normally the EagleEye Motion Sensor will turn on an X10 module set to its' code, however when used with the CM11A 2-way Computer Interface (included with ActiveHome) the EagleEye Motion Sensor becomes much more powerful. Instead of turning on a module set to A1, you can set A1 to initiate a macro that performs a sequence of events. For example you enter the room, the table lamp can turn on and dim to 70%, and the stereo can turn off 30 minutes later.
Built in photocell works like a watchful eye and will turn lights on and off at dusk and sunrise. This will save you energy as it only detects motion in the dark.
The X10 Indoor/Outdoor Motion Sensor is an X10 Wireless Transmitter
A basic wireless X10 system includes a Transmitter, a Transceiver and a Receiver – each sold separately. Wireless Transmitters are control devices that broadcast X10 radio frequency (RF) signals to Transceivers, which plugs into standard wall outlets. The Wireless Transceiver then converts the RF signal into an X10 signal and transmits it through your home's electrical wiring to X10 Receivers. When an X10 Receiver receives a command, it responds by turning a light, appliance or other electrical device On or Off, and sometimes Dim or Bright.
It's So Easy To Automate Your Home!
X10 started manufacturing home automation and security products in the late 70s and has been one of the smart home standards since its inception. X10 utilized powerline language to transmit control signals anywhere in your house over your existing 110V electrical lines, so you can control lights and appliances throughout your home without running new wires! Simply add a controller (transmitter) at one electrical outlet and add another module (receiver) at any other outlet and you have remote control of that module. Choose from plug-in, wired-in and wireless models. This enables you to have the remote and automated control of lights and appliances from anywhere on your property. The convenience and security of controlling all your lights and appliances from anywhere in your house is simple and inexpensive.
