is a device that contains a physical mechanism or electronic sensor that quantifiesmotionthat can be either integrated with or connected to other devices thatalert the user of the presence of a moving object within the field of view. They’re a vitalcomponent of comprehensive security systems, for both homes and businesses.
contains a motion sensor that transforms the detection of motion into an electric signal. This can be achieved by measuring optical or acousticalchanges in the field of view.A motiondetector may be connected to aburglar alarmthat is used to alert the home
owner or security service after itdetects motion. Such a detector may also trigger ared
light camera.An occupancy sensor is a motion detector that is integrated with a timing device. It senseswhen motion has stopped for a specified time period in order to trigger a lightextinguishing signal. These devices preventillumination of unoccupied spaceslike public
There are basically three types of sensors used in motion detectors spectrum.
Looks for body heat. No energy is emitted from the sensor.
Sensor sends out pulses and measures the reflection off a moving object.
Sensor sends out microwave pulses and measures the reflection off amoving object. Similar to a police radar gun.
Dual-technology motion detectors
Many modern motion detectors use a combination of different technologies. These dual-technology detectors benefit with each type of sensor, andfalse alarmsare reduced. Allcompanies have the option to use PIR/Microwave Motion Detectors that have "Pet-Immune" functions which allow the detector to ignore pets that weigh up to 80 pounds.Placement of the sensors can be strategically mounted so as to lessen the chance of petserrantly activating alarms.
