Question

Why did my Protector Plus go off by itself?

Answer

There are a number of things to check:

  • The MS10A motion sensors employ passive infrared (PIR.) If they are facing a window and the sun is reflecting off the glass, it can create heat and cause the motion sensor to trigger. Heating and AC vents can also trigger sensors.
  • If your door is loose and wind presses up against your door, the magnets may separate slightly causing your door window sensor to trigger.
  • Double check the batteries in your sensors.
