Information on placement of your motion sensor and other security equipment can be found on SNAP-IS website at SUPPORT / Training Document “ Sensor Testing “.
There are several possibilities, the height placement of your motion detector might be too low and allow a dog to trigger it. Also a large window in its field of detection that has no cover and allows view to outside. See SUPPORT/Training document “Sensor Testing “.
There are two ways to test your motion detector, a walk test watching a red trigger light as you move in and out of detection field and a live test where you set your alarm in the AWAY Mode and cross the detection field of the motion, setting off the alarm.

No. There is only one sound for Alarm and one sound for the chime during alerts.
Z-Wave has limited range, 50 feet max. even less if there are walls in between. The good news is that each one of our Z-Wave devices also works as a wireless Repeater as part of the network (Mesh System). Each Z-Wave device that has wall power will relay commands intended for another device in the network thus extending the range. Example: If you have a Z-Wave light 40 ft. from Helix Platform and another one 80 ft. from Helix Platform, the closest one will relay signal sent to the second one.
