My Hub is not connected to the Internet

Your hub will not function when it is disconnected from our servers, please check these settings to connect your hub:

  • Check your hub’s power and ethernet connections. Ensure the LED lights on the back of the hub near the ethernet port are lit when the ethernet cord is plugged in.
  • Try another port on your router.
  • Restart your router. After it’s back online, reconnect the hub.
  • Bypass the router altogether and plug your Kinetic hub directly into your modem. If the hub works in your modem, there may be an issue with your router.

If you are joining an existing location:

  • Use the link in the invitation email sent from Kinetic to create a unique password. You can then log in to the location via the app.

Please note, the new member invitation link expires after 30 days for security reasons. If you received the invitation 30+ days ago, or are unable to locate the email, reset your password by clicking the "?" icon in the password field of the app login screen.

My Entry Sensor only shows as open

An access sensor will remain in an open state if the magnet attachment is 12mm or more away from the main sensor panel in any direction. Please move the magnet closer to the main panel.

 

My Entry Sensor only shows as closed

If you’ve just started installing all your devices, make sure the magnet is aligned with the flat side of the main sensor panel. The main panel and thin magnet create a rectangle with four rounded corners when installed correctly.

If you installed your hub at an earlier date, make sure your monitoring plan is activated. Sensors will remain in their default state if you haven’t activated your monitoring plan within a day or two of installing your hub.

 

Why isn't my Entry Sensor chirping?

The Kinetic hub "chirps" each time the access sensor is opened during installation and when the access sensor's device screen is open.

After installation, the access sensor will no longer chirp from the hub. If you like the chirp, you can enable it from the sensor's settings screen.

 

My Entry Sensor is offline.

If the Kinetic Hub is offline for 12 hours or less, all sensors will automatically time out or “go offline” (disconnect from the Kinetic Hub).

To reconnect, follow these steps:

  1. Remove the faceplate.
  2. Locate and push the sensor’s black reset switch once.
  3. Snap the faceplate back into place.

If the Kinetic Hub is offline for 12 hours or more, all Kinetic sensors will go into “deep sleep” to preserve battery life.

To wake up the sensors and reconnect them with the Kinetic Hub, follow these steps:

  1. Remove the faceplate.
  2. Remove the battery.
  3. Insert the battery.
  4. Snap the faceplate back into place.

Note:

  • If your sensor has low/dead batteries, you may need to replace the batteries before repairing the sensor.
  • If the sensor is greater than 150 feet from the Kinetic Hub, you may need to shorten the distance between the hub and the entry sensor.

 

My Entry Sensor isn’t setting off my alarm.

If your entry sensor isn’t setting off the alarm, follow these steps:

  1. From your Kinetic app, click on the Devices icon on the bottom right of your screen. Your paired devices will appear.
  2. Tap on the sensor.
  3. Check to see if it says the sensor is “offline.”
  4. If the access sensor is offline, follow the "sensor offline" steps above.

If the sensor is online, double check your mode settings. Make sure your access sensor is assigned to your alarm mode(s).

  3. Press and hold the sensor's reset button
  4. While holding down the reset button, re-insert the batteries
  5. Release the reset button

The pairing bars will fill, and the hub will chirp to indicate the sensor is paired

 

Why is my Motion Sensor chirping?

The Kinetic hub chirps when motion is detected during installation to assist with placement and sensor testing.

After the installation process is complete, the motion sensor will no longer chirp unless it’s detecting motion while it’s armed.

 

Are the Kinetic Motion Sensors pet friendly?

Yes, Kinetic motion sensors are rated pet friendly for pets up to 85 lbs.

 

My Motion Sensor isn't detecting motion

To test your motion sensor, arm a mode in which the sensor is active. Walk away for a few minutes, then return and try to trigger the motion sensor with your movement.

If you installed your hub at an earlier date, make sure your monitoring plan is activated. Sensors will remain in their default state if you haven’t activated your monitoring plan within a day or two of installing your hub.

 

My Motion Sensor is causing false alarms.

Kinetic motion sensors are passive infrared motion sensors, which are often associated with objects that emit heat. Movement outside of windows or changing shadows can also create false motion triggers. To help prevent false motion events, install Kinetic motion sensors away from HVAC registers and ensure they are pointed away from windows.

 

*A note on low battery life: If your motion sensor has low battery life, this may cause false motion triggers. When a motion sensor’s batteries are low, the motion sensor is temporarily disabled in your modes until the batteries are replaced. Once the batteries are swapped out with new ones, the sensor is then “Active” again in your modes.

 

My Motion Sensor is offline.

If the Kinetic Hub is offline for 12 hours or less, all sensors will automatically time out or “go offline” (disconnect from the Kinetic Hub).

To reconnect, follow these steps:

  1. Remove the faceplate.
  2. Locate and push the sensor’s black reset switch once.
  3. Snap the faceplate back into place.

If the Kinetic Hub is offline for 12 hours or more, all Kinetic sensors will go into “deep sleep” to preserve battery life.

To wake up the sensors and reconnect them with the Kinetic Hub, follow these steps:

  1. Remove the back plate.
  2. Remove the batteries.
  3. Insert the batteries.
  4. Snap the backplate into place.

Note:

  • If your sensor has low/dead batteries, you may need to replace the batteries before repairing the sensor.
  • If the sensor is greater than 150 feet from the Kinetic Hub, you may need to shorten the distance between the hub and the access sensor.
