    I picked up a used ds924 motion sensor. I want to use it in a shed
    quite far from my house strictly as a visual deterrent. In other words
    it will not be connected to an alarm panel. When I press the test
    button, the sensor works well for several minutes(I assume its allowing
    me to do a walk test). After a short period of time it blinks rapidly
    and stops working. I must be doing something wrong(or I'm not doing
    something right). Can anyone tell me what I need to do to set this
    thing up right or is it maybe broken?

    May be redundant, but the battery saving feature will put the motion to
    sleep, if you will, until there is no motion in the area of view for a
    period of time and then it will detect motion again. Lets say there was a
    party in the room and the motion was detecting constant motion for an
    extended amount of time, the batteries would die rapidly. May be the same
    thing Doug was saying.

    probably would have been cheaper to hang a wired pir with a 9v battery for
    power.

    I'm not quite sure what you folks are saying - Are you saying that
    after the test period the red light NEVER shows again to save battery
    power? When I go back to the shed an hour later the light does not go
    on no matter how much motion. If this is to save battery strength so be
    it but I was hoping to make someone think that the red light meant that
    they had been detected by a monitoring system and they would run away.
    On the other hand if the ds924 is SUPPOSED to keep lighting up at
    separate incidents mine does not and I would like to know if I'm doing
    something wrong.(Is there a series of steps or code to turn it on)
    Thanks for all your help. Its nice to be able to ask a newbie question
    and not get flamed.

    If its a hardwired motion yes it can be made to do what you want but
    wireless no

    buy a cheap wired pir and use a 9v battery to pwr it you'll get your led
    that way...until the battery dies...but it should last a while.
