Motion Sensor Tree

The Loxone Motion Detector Tree is used to detect motion and brightness in a room.

Note: The Motion Sensor Tree is no longer available and has been replaced by the Presence Sensor Tree.

The Motion Sensor can also detect some pets. Although the sensitivity of the sensor can be reduced, there is no dedicated technology that excludes the detection of pets.

For motion to be detected accurately, correct placement of the Motion Sensor on the ceiling is essential. The following drawings can assist with this:

Connect the power supply (orange/white terminal) and Tree communication wires (green/white terminals). To complete the installation, attach the Presence Sensor to the mounting ring. Shortly after power-up, the status LED will blink orange if the wiring is correct (connection to Tree Extension and Miniserver is established).


Then follow the pairing procedure on the Tree Interface.


Summary Description Unit Value Range
Motion Input is active when motion is detected - 0/1
Brightness Provides the measured value of the current brightness Lx 0...188

Diagnostic Inputs

Summary Description Unit Value Range
Online Status Motion Sensor Tree Indicates whether the device can be reached by the Miniserver.
Diagnostics for Air devices
Diagnostics for Tree devices
Diagnostics for Extensions
Digital 0/1


Summary Description Unit Value Range Default Value
Monitor Online Status When selected, you will be notified via System Status or the Mailer if the device is no longer available or goes offline. - - -
Serial Number Specifies the serial number of the device.
For Extensions: Enter 'Auto' to automatically pair an extension with unknown serial number.
This can only be used if there is only one Extension of the same type.
Save into the Miniserver, in order to pair the Extension.
Afterwards the program must be loaded from the Miniserver to transfer the actual serial number of the Extension into the program.
- - -
Device type Tree device type - - -
Sensitivity Effects the sensitivity and thus also the distance over which motion can be sensed - - -
Overrun Duration Following Motion The 'Motion (Mo)' input remains active following the last detected motion for the set time. A higher value means less packets have to be sent via Tree and Link.
If the motion detector is used for the alarm system, the time is automatically set to 3 seconds when the alarm system is armed.
