Livi MSW curtain type motion sensor manual

Description
Livi MSW passive optoelectronic infrared curtain type motion sensor (hereafter referred to as the sensor) is designed to detect intrusions through doors and windows into a Livicom site.

The sensor forms a virtual wall and monitors its state. If the sensor detects a break in the virtual wall, it switches to the alarm mode:
  1. The indicator (1) blinks red once;
  2. The sensor sends an alert to the Livi Smart Hub (hereafter referred to as the hub).

Binding to the hub
The sensor must be kept in the room unpacked for at least 2 hours before any manipulations if it was transported or stored at low temperatures.
Only the owner of the site can bind sensors to the hub. Disable the guard and check whether the hub is online before binding.
Follow these steps to bind the sensor to the hub:

  1. Open the sensor enclosure: loosen the screw (2) at the bottom of the enclosure using a crosshead screwdriver.
  2. Pull the lid up to open the enclosure.

The sensor switches to the binding mode only for 60 seconds. If you have not bound it to the hub within this period, remove the battery from the sensor for 30 seconds, and reinstall it (observing polarity). The sensor will switch to binding mode again.
Choosing a location for the sensor
We recommend installing the sensor on the wall at a height of 2.1 m. Choose the best location for the sensor with the help of detection zone diagrams presented below.

DO NOT install the sensor:
  • outdoors,
  • exposed to direct sunlight,
  • in front of objects with extreme temperature dynamics (for example, electric and gas heaters),
  • in front of moving objects with a temperature close to that of a human body (for example, swinging curtains above a heating radiator),
  • in places with intense airflow (e.g. near fans, radiators, and air ventilation ducts),
  • in places with high humidity,
  • at temperatures exceeding the operating temperature range (see "Specifications").

Evaluating signal strength
Check the quality of the connection between the sensor and the hub at the intended location.

There are two ways to evaluate the signal strength:

  1. In the Livicom app, on the sensor settings screen.
  2. With the help of the LED indication: double-click on the tamper button (5) and look at the indicator (1). Interpret the indication using the table below.
Good signal The indicator blinks green 3 times
Average signal The indicator blinks green 2 times
Poor signal The indicator blinks green once
No connection The indicator blinks red 4 times
Sensor installation
There are three ways to mount the sensor:

1. With a double-sided tape from the supplied mounting kit.

2. With two screws from the supplied mounting kit:
  • open the sensor enclosure (if it is closed) and remove the battery,
  • fasten the base of the sensor enclosure at a selected location by twisting two screws in mounting holes (3) and (4). Note that the mounting hole (4) is covered with thin layer of plastic,
  • install the battery back, observing polarity,
  • close the sensor enclosure.
3. With a mounting bracket Livi Holder MS/MSW from the supply set (if you want to mount the sensor on an uneven surface or set it at an angle to the surface):
  • open the sensor enclosure (if it is closed),
  • take the bracket out of its packaging,
  • insert the sphere into the bracket base and fix the bracket base at a selected location,
  • place the sensor on the bracket and twist the sensor securing screw into the mounting hole (3) (do not tighten the screw),
  • adjust the sensor position and tighten the sensor securing screw,
  • close the sensor enclosure.

Checking the sensor operation
Сheck the operation of the sensor after its installation.

Make sure that the sensor indication matches the information in the table "LED indication" when you move in the sensor detection zone. Then wait for the sensor to recover after alarm (no motion should be detected by the sensor for at least 10 minutes). Enable full guard of the site through the Livicom app. Make sure that you see an alarm alert in the app once you start moving in the sensor detection zone.

If the sensor does not detect all movements into the guarded site, then reinstall it in a different place or fasten it at a different angle to the wall.

Contact technical support (mail to: support@livicom.ru) if you see an incorrect indication or do not receive the alert.

            Renaming the sensor
            Only the owner of the site can rename sensors. Disable the guard and check whether the hub is online before renaming.
            • On the sensor settings screen tap on the menu button (in the upper right corner of the screen).
            • In the menu select Rename.
            • Enter a new name and save it.
            Женщина-диспетчер ПЦН
            Operational parameters
            • Radio signal strength between the sensor and the hub (no connection / poor / average / good).
            If there is no connection between the sensor and the hub, then check whether the hub is turned on. If the hub is off, turn the hub on and again check the signal strength on the sensor settings screen. Then check whether there are any objects obstructing radio signal (for example, metal objects or mirrors) between the hub and the sensor. Change the sensor installation location so that radio signal could pass between devices without obstructions. Check whether the sensor is installed within radio signal range of the hub. If the sensor is installed too far from the hub, then move it to a new place where connection between the sensor and the hub will be restored.

            The location of the hub also affects the signal strength. In some cases even a slight displacement of the hub or even its rotation gives a significant improvement in a quality of its communication with sensors.

            • Battery status (OK or low battery).
            Replace the battery as soon as possible after you receive a push-notification about low battery in the Livicom app. Information about low battery will also be displayed in the event log and on the sensor settings screen.

            • Status of the sensor enclosure (open or closed).
            Operational settings
            Only the owner of the site can change operational settings. Disable the guard and check whether the hub is online before making changes.
            • Delay for entry / exit:
              • move the switcher to the left if you do not use a Livi RFID control panel to enable / disable the guard of the site (the switcher will turn grey).
              • move the switcher to the right if you use a Livi RFID control panel to enable / disable the guard of the site AND the sensor is installed on a wall between the Livi RFID control panel and the site entrance (the switcher will turn green).
            The setting "Delay for entry / exit" impacts the way the full guard of the site will be enabled and disabled if the user uses a Livi RFID control panel. As Livi RFID is usually installed inside the guarded site, users need some time to exit the site before the full guard will be enabled and to enter the site before the alarm will be triggered - the delay for entry / exit. If the guard should be enabled with the delay for the sensor, then this setting should be enabled.

            • Night guard when the night guard of the site is enabled, the Livicom system monitors only those security sensors for which the Night guard setting is enabled
              • move the switcher to the left if the Livicom system should not monitor the sensor when the night guard of the site is enabled (the switcher will turn grey).
              • move the switcher to the right if the sensor should perform guarding functions when the night guard of the site is enabled (the switcher will turn green).
            • Detection zone test this test is designed to help choosing the best location for the sensor.
              Detection zone test
              Detection zone test helps to choose the best position for the sensor by testing the sensor detection zones for each intended location.


              Open the sensor settings screen as described above and tap on the line Detection zone test.
              Before starting the test, make sure that the current state of the sensor is No motion. If the sensor is in the alarm mode, then let it recover after the alarm (there should be no motion detected for 10 sec).
              Tap on START TEST and wave your hand in front of the sensor in order to switch it to the testing mode.

              Move inside the intended detection zone. The sensor will transmit data about its current state every 2 seconds. Every time the sensors will detect motion a vibration on smartphone will be triggered.

              If the sensor does not detect all movements inside the desired detection zone, then move it to a different location or change an angle, at which the sensor is mounted.

              By default the detection zone test lasts for 10 minutes. You can interrupt it any time before that by tapping COMPLETE.
              Maintenance
              Keep the sensor free of dust and dirt. Replace the battery as soon as possible after you receive a low battery notification in the Livicom app.
              WARNING
              Do not wipe the sensor with substances containing alcohol, acetone, gasoline and other active solvents
              Deleting the sensor (unbinding the sensor from the hub)
              Only the owner of the site can delete sensors. Disable the guard and check whether the hub is online before deleting.
              There are two ways to unbind the sensor from the hub:

              1. In the Livicom app, on the sensor settings screen.
              2. Using the tamper button (5): remove the battery from the sensor for 30 seconds, then press the tamper button and while holding it, reinstall the battery, observing polarity. Release the tamper button and quickly click on it until the indicator (1) starts blinking blue.
