New 2gig owner here. Installed it over the weekend and love it so far! Thanks to Lora for pre-configuring the system and shipping it out so fast!
Ok, so I tried to search this first, but didn’t see that the forum has a search function. For future reference does it?
On to my questions. I installed a 2gig motion sensor in my backyard un-insulated workshop (made of metal). I live in San Diego, so while it doesn’t stay too cold for too long it does dip down into the low 30s at night during the winter. The workshop is about 50 feet from the panel (but obviously has some obstacles with walls and such). I changed the config from default (motion follower) to have it set as perimeter because I want it armed when in “stay” mode. Not sure if that makes any difference but the issue I’m having is that it is reporting “open” and stopped communicating with the panel this morning. It’s all intermittent, but I suspect the signal strength isn’t up for the task. I did see that during my walk test it reported 4 bars of signal…but that was also with the door open to the shop. So - I’d love to hear some thoughts on how to get this to work or if I need another brand. I see the Honeywell PIR is a popular choice in difficult conditions.
My second question is - how do I suppress the tone sounds when the screen is being touched? It gets quite obnoxious when trying to do anything besides arm/disarm the system. There’s got to be a way, but I just haven’t figure out how yet!
Thanks in advance for the help.
