To prevent you from being flooded with motion detections in your elements app and to extend battery life, Gigaset motion waits 20 seconds until it reports the next movement. If there is constant movement in the Gigaset motion field of vision, it will only report again when no movement has been detected for 20 seconds.


If your system is set to [Home] mode and [Privacy] is switched on, no movements are displayed by the motion either.


How can I switch "Privacy" on and off?


  • Open the Gigaset elements app
  • Click on the horizontal stripes at the top left 
  • Click on [Configuration]
  • Under [Alarm Mode], click on [Home].
  • Now you can switch the privacy on and off by clicking on the button.
