HS-MS100+ User Guide

Installation and setup guide for the HS-MS100+ Z-Wave motion sensor


HS-MS100+ is a compact, easy to install motion sensor. It is designed to control other Z-Wave devices directly or it may be used with a variety of Z-Wave certified home controllers to launch automation events or scenes.


  • Activate Z-Wave wall switches or plug-in modules when motion is sensed.
  • Trigger home automation events when motion is sensed.


The unit may be powered using the included battery or with a USB power adapter (not included). The unit includes a Z-Wave network button for inclusion/exclusion and a blue LED operation indicator. A magnetic mount allows for very easy installation.

Physical Installation

Install the magnetic mount in the location of your choice using the supplied double-stick tape or screw. Then attach the main unit to the mount and point the sensor dome, the lens, toward the location you wish to monitor.

Z-Wave Network Installation

Remove the back cover by rotating counter-clockwise and Install 1 CR123A battery (included) inside the unit. Alternately, you may power the unit with a micro USB connection. HS-MS100+ may be included into your Z-Wave network as a secure device or as a non-secure device. Use the instructions below to include or exclude HS-MS100+ to/from your Z-Wave network.

  • Inclusion
    1. Put your home controller into Z-Wave inclusion mode.
    2. Power MS100 with the included battery.
    3. Quickly press and release the Z-Wave network button 1 time. Wait for the inclusion process to finish.
  • Repeater Inclusion (recommended if you power the MS100 with the optional AC adapter)
    1. Put your home controller into Z-Wave inclusion mode.
    2. Remove batteries and power MS100 with the optional AC adapter
    3. Press the Z-Wave button for 3 to 5 seconds and release. Wait for the inclusion process to finish. The sensor is added as a Z-Wave repeater. Note that you must run the sensor on line power or the batteries will be exhausted quickly.
  • Exclusion
    1. Put your home automation controller into Z-Wave exclusion mode.
    2. Quickly triple-press the Z-Wave network button. Wait for the exclusion process to finish.
  • Factory Reset (Use this procedure to reset HS-MS100+ to factory settings when the Z-Wave controller is missing or inoperable).
    1. Press and hold the Z-Wave button for 20 seconds. Release the button once the LED stops blinking and glows solidly.


  • Motion Sensor Operation 
    HS-MS100+ is designed to transmit a Z-Wave command when motion is sensed. It will also transmit another command when motion has not been sensed for a period of time. This motion timeout interval is adjustable using a Z-Wave parameter (see page 2). The default setting of 600 seconds (10 minutes) should yield a good balance of performance and battery life.
  • Shock Sensor Operation
    The shock sensor is designed to transmit a Z-Wave command when HS-MS100+ has been physically moved. This sensor is especially helpful in determining whether the unit has been removed from its mount or tampered with.
  • Battery Sensor Operation
    The battery sensor is designed to report battery level with a Z-Wave command every 43200 seconds (12 hours). If desired, HomeSeer users can adjust this interval (0-2678400 seconds) by accessing the settings on the Z-Wave tab of the root device. Note: battery sensor operation is disabled on units that are line powered.

Z-Wave Association Information

HS-MS100+ supports Group 1 association. Group 1 reports the sensors status and battery if running on batteries.
