Hi,

while the motion sensor in the Duet controller is nice in certain scenarios, it doesn't make much sense if you tend to carry the controller around with you in the house. I tend to have it in one of my pockets to always be able to control my system, no matter where I am.

So what happens? The motion sensor is triggered by each and every move I make, preventing the controller to dim down it's screen or go into sleep mode. Result: Battery is dead after only a couple of hours.

Can the motion sensor in any way be configured or turned off?

Thanks

Yes, use the key lock feature, pressing the ADD and PLAY buttons together. It won't wake up until another button is pressed.

Is it then always turned off, even after you turn the SBC off and on again? I also have to say the battery doesn't last so long...
