The Link must be installed before you can add a motion detector. The latter can only be installed via the Somfy Protect mobile app.

Advice on positioning:

On an item of furniture or a wall:
the Somfy Protect motion detector can be fastened to an item of furniture, a shelf or the wall (middle or corner) using the mounting bracket and the adhesives supplied.

Detection angle:
Place the motion detector such that it covers the openings to be protected: place it perpendicular to the direction of movement.

Locations to be avoided:
The motion detector is intended for use indoors:
do not place it close to a heat source
do not expose it to direct sunlight or another light source (lamp, etc.)
do not expose it to water or draughts
avoid obstacles: the field of detection should be free

Installation procedure via the app:
1. Via the “Settings” menu then “My equipment”, select “Add equipment”; select the motion detector
2. Open the cover, remove the batter tab (or remove then replace the batteries if the tab has already been removed)
3. Turn the detector over then turn it back again; the siren confirms this action by emitting a sound. The detector has been paired
4. Simply name the detector according to its location in your house

Operating test:
Before finalising the installation, you can perform an operating test. This test can also be carried out at a later date.
1. Turn the motion detector over again then position it in its final location
2. Move in front of the motion detector until you are detected, as indicated by a sound emitted by the siren
3. Installation is complete, you can test the detector again whenever you want.
