"1 inch/sec for about 15 ft down the hallway to defeat the motion sensor on the alarm so I could put in the password"

you have more patience / control than i. i woulda just let it go off, then put in the special code to cancel the alarm.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

Just before doing this, I was testing the sensor to figure out how sensitive it was. I had noticed it picked up normal movements, so I decided to move really slow and try to defeat it. I really didn't think it would work and when it went off, I would run to turn it off.
