weather proof motion detector

Anyone have a lead on a tested weather proof/outdoor appropriate motion detector?

Aeon Labs has sensors that are supposedly outdoor safe:
Aeon Labs Aeotec Z-Wave Multi-Sensor
Their upcoming MultiSensor 6 is also listed as outdoor capable (per their website) but that mentions disabling the motion detector (I would assume it a sensitivity issue NOT a seal issue).

Got one that joined the network easily... but it seems to always show "motion detected" the red light that indicates it sees motion is out, and I can make it come on by moving in front of it. I've turned down the sensitivity, but still no change in status through the app or on the LCD. Any ideas?

Has anyone integrated this Aeon sensor into their network? I have, and it continues to register motion detected. Seems stuck. Any advice would be appreciated.

Are the other sensors working properly? This might be a sensitivity issue and why Aeon Labs says about disabling the motion for outdoor use.

I have one sitting inside haven't placed it in a permanent spot yet, but it seems to be working fine. As for another sensor outside I have the monoprice one. It says it's not weather proof, but I've had it outside for about 4 months without a problem. It is protected somewhat an overhang.
