The following instructions cover the configuration of HawkEye (MS12A), HawkEye II (MS13A), EagleEye (MS14A), and ActiveEye (MS16A) Motion Sensors. At a minimum, a Transceiver (TM751 or RR501) is required to test them. All Motion Sensors share the following characteristics:

  • Passive Infrared (PIR) Detection
  • Detect motion approximately 20 feet distant
  • 100 foot transmission range (maximum)
  • Configurable to all House and Unit codes

The following chart compares the differences between the Motion Sensors:

Feature Detection Dawn/Dusk Detection No Motion Off Time Weather Resistant
MS12A Always Fixed Enabled Fixed 6 Minutes No
MS13A Always or Night Only Fixed Enabled Variable No
MS14A Always or Night Only Fixed Enabled Variable Yes
MS16A Always or Night Only Variable Variable Yes
