Sensor Physical Setup

Pre­setup Notes:

  1. Your Sensor can be positioned anywhere in your home up to 300 feet from your Relay Station (depending on environment).
  2. Be mindful of the place you choose on the ceiling. The best location to place the Sensor is in the corner of the ceiling where objects will be moving across the line of sight of the motion detector. The motion detector can detect motion anywhere between 1-25 feet away. The further away you get from the detector, the larger the detection zones are, and the more distance the subject needs to cover before the motion detector will detect movement. Try moving it closer to the location you want to cover. Setting up your Sensor will differ based on the texture of your ceiling.

If your ceiling has little or no texture:

  1. Remove the Sensor from the box. It consists of two main parts, the Sensor and the ceiling cradle
  2. Separate the Sensor from the cradle by grasping the top and bottom in separate hands and pulling in opposite directions. Note that the magnet is very strong so it will require you to pull hard.
  3. Separating the Sensor from the cradle will reveal the battery panel. Remove the plastic tab to power on the Sensor.
  4. Using the Novi app connect the Sensor to your account 
  5. Determine the desired location of your Sensor. You may want to take a test picture while holding the Sensor up in place to Ensure it’s a good location.
  6. Remove the red side of 2 command strips (purchased separately) and attach them to the outside face of the sensor cradle. Press down firmly against them for approximately 30 seconds.
  7. Remove the black side of the command strips and press the cradle firmly against the ceiling for approximately 30 seconds.
  8. Now, simply place the sensor in the cradle. The built in magnets will hold the sensor in the cradle.
  9. Rotate the sensor until it is pointed in the correct position, taking more test pictures as needed.

If your ceiling has lots of texturing:

  1. Remove the Sensor from the box. It consists of two main parts, the sensor and the cradle
  2. Separate the sensor from the cradle by grasping the top and bottom in separate hands and pulling in opposite directions. Note that the magnet is very strong so it will require you to pull hard.
  3. Separating the Sensor from the cradle will reveal the battery panel. Remove the protruding plastic tab to activate the Sensor.
  4. Using the Novi App connect the Sensor to your account 
  5. Determine the desired location of your Sensor. You may want to take a test picture
  6. Using the cradle as a guide, drive the drywall anchors into the ceiling with a phillips screwdriver.
  7. Once the anchors are in place, mount the cradle to the ceiling using the two included screws.
  8. Now, simply push the sensor up into the cradle. The built in magnets will hold the sensor in the cradle.
  9. Rotate the sensor until it is pointed in the correct position, taking more test pictures as needed.
