60-807-95R GE Wireless Pet-Immune Motion Detector GeoArm Recommendation:
We had an ADT alarm system until recently. I got tired of only getting what ADT wanted me to have and paying for every change. As well as of the monthly payments and contract of course. What they did have, however, was a very nice motion detector that never falsely identified our cats as threats in the 2+ years we had it. It clearly "saw" people, as the indicator light always triggered when we walked through the detector area. I mention this because it means the technology to differentiate "well enough" exists, even without facial recognition capability. The SmartThings motion sensor should never be used as part of a system that auto-notifies the police (IMHO), especially if you have pets. I see a couple of posts indicating there are supported MD's that are better at differentiating. Would you feel comfortable using them if the police were in the notification loop? I don't want to either get charged for the false alarms or lose my right to a monitored system.
This wireless pet-immune motion detector uses passive infrared technology to detect movement within range of its field of view. This wireless indoor motion detector can be used in large rooms, narrow corridors and stairwells. If motion is detected, this device will activate your alarm and communicate with GeoArm's central station. In the event of an emergency, our professional operators will follow protocol and dispatch your local authorities if needed.

WS4904P DSC Wireless Pet-Immune Motion Detector Compatibility:
Are there any other Pet Immune motion detectors that are reliable? I know Fibaro makes a good one, however since it's a multi sensor, it's nearly double the price than what I was paying for a motion detector. Since I don't need the other variables, it's pointless to spend $60 and only use 1/4 of the features. Someone, maybe ? Uses motion sensors embedded in the wall with a narrow tube over them to really limit the detection area. Set at just the right height these can be very useful for distinguishing adults from some pets, but again may not be able to tell the difference between a small child and a large dog.OK, so for idiots like me who "assumed" I could make the Smartthings motion detector NOT look at the floor and pick up motion from a small dog and cat.. has ANYBODY successfully figure out a way to mask them or mount them in such a way as to be happy? Am I going to need to sell them? I'm not used to having motion sensors that can't handle pets.. To me, having that adjustment/ability is a basic prerequisite of any motion detector.Ok my starter kit has shipped and I have ordered a Ecolink Z-Wave PIR Motion Detector, Pet Immune. So I will let everyone know how my install goes ..... Any other tips or must have add ons for a new smartthings user??
