Has anyone had any problems with this? Does the air cut off when everyone is laying down? I would think it would get mighty hot and stuffy in the room over night. Is there a way to set it to where it wont be motion sensitive?

Here are the directions.

awhile back someone posted the following directions (I wrote them down)

Press/ hold F/C button on left side....once "b/p" appears its on override.

Haven't tried this method yet but we're staying at AoA in a month .....

Taken from this thread.

someone said to tie a balloon to a chair or something in view of the motion sensor. it'll constantly move from the air and thus, keep the air going.

.... Or you could try to put a helium filled balloon near the vent and close to the sensor so that the balloon is in constant motion when the air is on thus tripping the motion sensor :confused3

Yes, balloons seem to keep the air moving at a constant. At ASMu I used a plastic knife to tilt all the vent louvers towards the room rather than towards the window and it made a huge difference in room comfort.

Helium only last about a day.. Try the Mylar balloon.. Mylar can last a week! I know because I always buy the Mylar balloons for my kids and they last a very long time.

No need to do these tricks. Just got home from LM stay and we had to get up last night and turn down air we were so cold! The air works wonderfully!
