Iris MOT801 "V1" motion sensors

Reading time: less than 1 minute

This is a slow but reliable PIR Motion Sensor. The Lowes Iris line used Zigbee but has some proprietary preamble to the pairing process. Hubitat pairs them reliably enough, but has a special button for V1 Iris devices.

When they’re available these motion sensors are very cheap. I found a bag of 20 for $40.

Model number MOT801 or MOT901, from eBay. The run for about a year on a CR-123A 3 volt battery.

Reset process:

After reset, simply inserting the battery puts it into pairing mode.
