Cons: Reflections of the sound waves can cause false triggers

Create a couple Smart Schedules for both the attract screen and the content we want to play when motion is detected. We will assume you have content in the form of a playlist or template already created for this purpose.
First the Attract schedule. Login to your Revel Digital account and go to Schedules. Create a new Smart Schedule and name it 'Attract'. This is the default schedule that will play whenever there is no motion detected and simply plays the specified content Always.
