Marmitek X10 Motion Detector MS13E
The Marmitek X10 Motion Detector PIR on sensing movement will send X10 signals by wireless to an X10 receiver which can be set to perform other functions like turning lights or appliances on or off.
- Save energy by turning off lights when there is no-one in the room.
- Have lighting without wall switches.
- Activate lighting sequences.
- Splash waterproof for inside and outside use.
- Protect your home by having early warning of visitors.
Imagine not having to tell the kids to turn the lights off when they are not in the room - with the MS13E Motion Sensor it can be done automatically! Imagine not having to search for a light switch in the dark - The MS13E can turn on the lights when someone enters the room. With a Marmitek CM15pro Computer Interface and ActiveHomePro software, you can set up macros to run when the MS13E senses occupancy or not. With the CM15pro time delay you can have sequenced lighting.
The MS13E sends wireless radio frequency (RF) signals to a Transceiver Module. The receiver then passes the signals onto your house wiring which are picked up by other X10 controlled modules, like the Lamp Module or Appliance Module to turn on lights or appliances around the home. The MS13E can also send signals to turn off a light after a designated time. The user can set the MS13E to turn off after 1,2,4,8,16,32,64 and 128 minutes, as long as no motion has been detected.
Note that the MS13E has a built-in photocell that detects when it is dark. The user can select to use the photocell to only turn lights on when it is dark. In this condition the MS13E does not transmit RF during daylight. Alternatively, the user may choose not to use the photocell and the MS13E will transmit day and night that there is someone there. In addition, the MS13E sends signals when it detects dusk and dawn so it can turn a light on when it gets dark and turn it off when it gets light (in addition to turning lights on when it detects motion, when its dark).

Used these modules for 10 years and they just work. Buying more for spares as I simply cannot believe they will continue much more than 10 years! Batteries last over a year on rechargeable too.

Marmitek MS13E motion detector - crikey, this thing is tiny. From the pics I was expecting something huge!
