I have the jumping spider from spirit and broke the connector for the foot pad and the motion sensor is hardly working....how does this need to be set up to work right....it's a hit but I'm having to get the kids to pet him to set it off
I had a similar problem with the sensor, after it working fine inside two nights ago. I think the sensor needs to sense light changes, so when it's dark, someone can walk right in front with no result. At least that's my best guess.
I was having the same problem. Vienna Mike is correct it does sense light changes. Our solution was to put an led flash light on the other side of the walking path from the spider and it worked perfectly after that.
