Motion detectors are a fundamental component of modern alarm systems, designed to sense movement within a designated area. These sensors play a crucial role in enhancing security for both residential and commercial properties.

Motion detectors are an integral part of alarm systems, offering a reliable and effective means of securing properties and protecting against potential threats. Their ability to detect movement and trigger alarms makes them indispensable in creating a safe and secure environment.

Detection Technology

  • Passive Infrared (PIR) Sensors: These are the most common type of motion detectors. They sense the heat emitted by living beings. When a person or animal passes through the sensor’s field of view, the detector notices the change in infrared radiation and triggers the alarm.
  • Microwave Sensors: These emit microwave pulses and measure the reflection off a moving object. They can cover larger areas but are more prone to false alarms.
  • Dual Technology Sensors: Combine PIR and microwave technologies to reduce false alarms by requiring both types of detection before triggering an alarm.
  • Ultrasonic Sensors: Emit ultrasonic sound waves and measure the reflection off moving objects. Less common due to susceptibility to false alarms from non-intrusive movements.
