    How does the Linear DXS-54 PIR work with small pets, such as a cat? Is
    there any way to turn down the sensitivity on these things, or mask
    them in any way? I've got one mounted 7' high in the corner of a room,
    and the cat could potentially walk through the room (which is about
    12x12').

    If its not adjustable, do other makes of sensor work with the Linear
    systems?

    Cats are evil.

    It doesn't make any difference what you do or what sensor you use.
    Unless it's a fat lump of clay, unable to get up off the floor, a cat
    will likely find a way to set it off.

    The DXS-54 is not a pet-immune motion detector, the only possible
    solution with that unit is to drop it down to chest level and mask off
    the bottom segments

    As long as it doesn't look at the back of the couch, the dining room
    table, the stairway, the window sill, the hutch, the chair, the
    shelf ...................................

    Cats are evil.
