Unfortunately, with some wall surfaces (wallpaper, plaster, etc.) the double-sided tape that we provide does not hold as well as with a smooth surface. We are in the process of making some improvements to our tape, but in the meantime here are some suggestions:
- Option 1 is to screw the motion sensors into the wall for a more permanent hold.
- Option 2 is to try adding additional tape. We recommend using Command strips because they have pull tabs that will allow you to remove the sensors without damage and are available at most hardware stores.
- Last but not least, you can also place your motions sensors on a high shelf using the stands that are included in your Starter Kit accessory box (see image below).
Quick tip for using stands: Make sure you place the sensor where it cannot be blocked or bumped and has a good "view" of the room to detect all motion.
