Motion Sensor 869

Detects and reports movement, room to room.

Detecting movement in a property

The motion sensor 869 is a Passive Infra Red (PIR)-based sensor, designed to detect movement in a room and transmit a radio signal to a lifeline home unit or other Tunstall telecare-enabled systems.

Motion Sensor activity monitoring is ideal for anyone currently using a Tunstall system, particularly those with medical conditions such as dementia, epilepsy or diabetes.

It is designed for care applications where it is important to avoid detecting a user who may be on the floor following a fall (fall zone feature) and therefore ensure an inactivity alarm is generated by the Lifeline home unit, or other Tunstall telecare-enabled systems.

Movement reported every 30 seconds.

  • 5m x 5m detection
  • Fall zone – if the user has fallen on the floor and is moving around, the sensor will not detect movement. The Motion Sensor will need to be on the wall between 1m -1.2m above the ground.
  • Easily installed flat against the wall or in a corner.
  • Simple battery replacement without the need to remove the sensor from the wall.

At the heart of the solution is a Lifeline home unit or a Tunstall system.

How does it work?

Every 30 seconds the unit reports on the resident’s movement patterns to provide assurance that they are OK. This is ideal for reporting into the Juno wellbeing solution to provide peace of mind.

Intelligent, unobtrusive, person-centred care.


  • Transmission to CAT 1 radio receiver - ensuring that signals from the sensors are received for ultimate reliability; essential where life-critical solutions are used
  • Fast PIR detection to send a transmission every 30 seconds, when continuous movement is detected
  • Walk test mode – 3 minutes of LED flashing every time movement is detected to show the PIR is working properly
  • Can be configured to operate in Auto Low Battery mode (ALB) or Auto Presence (AP) – to transmit the status of the Motion Sensor
