Have a couple iris gen2 motion sensors and been working fine for a year plus, tried paring another one and only battery and temperature shows up, no motion.
also this shows on the bottom of the new ones but not in the older ones
" Scheduled Jobs
As mentioned above, that scheduled job is unrelated.
So, assuming there's actually motion, this seems like to me one of two things: either a configuration problem (manually running the "Configure" command or re-pairing, which should also run this command, should help if that's it) or some device problem. I've seen reports of hardware failure recently and think I experienced this myself with one that's probably 6 years old now. Here's one post about this particular problem:
Maybe that describes your case, too? (And perhaps it becomes more likely over time, which is why there might be some reports of this now that I never remember hearing of before, as they've been discontinued for years.)
@Brandon my Platform Version 184.108.40.206, and I'm paring the units 7-8 feet away from the hub, so it should not be utilizing a repeater al tho possible as there is a wired zigbee in the same room. Did not try to run a to repair the zigbee network. for what ever reason 1 of the 2 motion sensors that previously was not picking up motion has started working
This a great channel for Zigbee, IMHO. I have a bunch of Iris v2 Zigbee sensors that work great on this channel.
If possible, make sure the WiFi Access Points only use 2.4GHz channels 1, 6, and/or 11 with a channel width of 20MHz. 5GHz WiFi will not interfere with Zigbee, so channel choice there really does not matter with respect to Zigbee.
Some routers/WiFi Access Points will try to automagically choose 2.4GHz channels that they believe are the least congested. Some even change over time on their own. This can eventually lead to Zigbee interference. Thus, it is best to try to force one's 2.4GHz WiFi network to only use channels 1, 6, and/or 11.
Where are these Iris v2 motions sensors from? Bought used? Or bought new and stored for a long time?
If they were used, I'd suggest making sure you are using a new battery and also doing a reset on them before you pair them.
I've about 2 dozen of them in use (and another 6 or so new-in-box as spares). I had one that failed to report motion when I initially installed it, but that was back in 2016 and I was able to get it replaced at Lowes. I had another that stopped reporting motion after I accidentally dropped 7 feet onto a hard surface. But other than that they've pretty reliable.
