Control4® White Internal Antenna Wireless Motion Sensor

Model #: ZCA-WMS10-2-ZP
At a Glance
Whether it’s the front porch, living room, garage, or back yard, detecting motion and light levels is key to a more responsive automated home. Fortunately, there are sensors that do this—all without wires. Control4 wireless motion sensors have intelligent, software controlled features to expand your home automation possibilities.
Available in Store Only

Get to know this product.

Wireless motion sensors use passive infrared (PIR) technology to detect motion in a room. They also monitor light level intensity to trigger events based on lighting level changes. These abilities enable controls beyond outdoor dawn/dusk detection for lighting, window covers, and other devices. Motion sensitivity, occupancy hold time, battery management, and light level monitoring are all software controlled. Adjust any settings without opening the motion sensor, changing jumpers, or turning little dials.

Two easy-to install motion sensors, a ceiling-mount and wall-mount version, are available to meet any application. Use software controlled occupancy hold times for lifestyle events that security-oriented motion sensors with fixed hold times just can’t do, like starting music. Automatically turn room lights off after a programmable time period (from five seconds to 60 minutes) of “no motion” detected. In larger areas requiring greater coverage, “link” two or more wireless motion sensors to act together as a single motion sensing device. In this mode, motion events are communicated to the Control4 system when any of the sensors detect motion. No motion events are communicated when all of the sensors report no motion.

“Green” up automated light switches, dimmers, and thermostats by adding motion sensors. Sensing motion and light allows for occupancy-based automation controls. Control room lighting, climate control, and water heating systems to comply with environmental policies, conserve resources, and save the homeowner money on utilities.

Wireless motion sensors operate for over one year on a standard 9V alkaline battery under typical usage and environmental conditions (non-rechargeable lithium batteries will provide even longer operation). The device can be line powered for maintenance-free operation. Wireless connectivity and easy installations make this motion sensor perfect for new construction and retrofitted homes, adding intelligent, automated features for any home or yard location.

Extend the benefits and enjoyment of a Control4 home with the increased occupancy-aware responsiveness that motion sensors provide.

  • Adds even more intelligent home automation to trigger and control events throughout the Control4 system based on object motion, occupancy and room ambient lighting levels. Automatically control room lighting, pathway lighting, exterior lighting, HVAC and audio/video applications either inside or outside the home.
  • “Greens” up the Control4-automated home by enabling occupancy-based automation controls. Used in concert with additional Control4 certified products such as wireless switches, relays, dimmers and motorized window coverings), the motion sensor can control heating, cooling, and lighting systems to help comply with environmental policies—California Title 24, and Canada’s NBC 2005 for example—while conserving resources and saving money on utilities.
  • Compatible with Control4 version 1.7.2 and 1.7.3 (EmberNet) and Control4 version 1.8 or greater (ZigBee PRO).
