Whats the worse that could happen if an indoor motion sensor like the honeywell IS3035 is installed outside?

The device could fail and short out the alarm panel, then people could casually steal all your belongings without being noticed.

There are many differences between indoor motion sensors and outdoor motion sensors. If you install an indoor motion sensor outside, it can not protect your house security effectively!!! Because I have imeshbean indoor motion sensors, and I had installed it outside for a test. Its detection range is limited to an indoor sensor outside. So If you need pir motion sensors to protect the outside of your house, it's better to install an OUTSIDE motion sensor.
