FAQ

WHAT ARE THE USES OF A MOTION SENSOR?

 

Motion sensors have a wide range of practical applications in various industries and settings. In security systems, they play a crucial role by detecting unauthorized movement and triggering alarms or notifications. They are also commonly used in automatic lighting systems, where they can activate lights upon detecting motion, enhancing energy efficiency. In retail stores, motion sensors are utilized to monitor customer movement, allowing for effective foot traffic analysis and optimizing store layouts. Additionally, motion sensors find applications in home automation, robotics, and even gaming, enabling interactive and immersive experiences. The versatility of motion sensors makes them a valuable technology in numerous fields.

 

THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF MOTION SENSORS

 

There are three distinct types of motion sensors available for various applications:

 

Passive Infrared (PIR): PIR motion sensors use passive infrared technology to detect motion from people or moving objects by measuring temperature fluctuations. They save power by not continuously sending signals to detect motion and are popular in commercial applications due to their affordability, durability, and suitability. Users can program the sensitivity level from low to high for greater accuracy and reduced false detection

 

Microwave (MW): Microwave sensors transmit microwave pulses to detect motion by measuring the reflection off a moving object. They cover a larger area compared to an infrared sensor but are more expensive and can be susceptible to electrical interference.

 

Dual Technology (DT): Dual Technology sensors utilize both microwave and passive infrared technology to achieve a further reduction in false alarms. Both sensors must be triggered to sound an alarm, but this does not guarantee the absence of false alarms.

 

WHERE SHOULD MOTION SENSORS BE PLACED FOR OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE?

 

High Traffic Areas: Placing motion sensors in high traffic areas is a key strategy for optimal performance. These areas typically include hallways, entryways, and corridors where people frequently move. By positioning motion sensors in these locations, you ensure comprehensive coverage and accurate detection of movement, minimizing blind spots and false alarms.

 

Corner of a Room: Another effective placement for motion sensors is in the corner of a room. This positioning provides a broader field of view, allowing the sensor to monitor a larger area. When placed in a corner, the motion sensor can detect movement across multiple directions and effectively cover the entire room.

 

Birds-Eye View: Mounting motion sensors in elevated positions that offer a birds-eye view can greatly enhance their performance. By placing them higher up, such as on ceilings or elevated surfaces, motion sensors can monitor a wider area and have a better vantage point to detect movement across the room. This placement is particularly useful for spaces with valuable assets or large open areas.

 

Over a Doorway: Installing a motion sensor over a doorway can be beneficial for security purposes. This placement allows the sensor to monitor entry and exit points effectively. When someone enters or leaves through the doorway, the motion sensor can detect their movement and trigger the appropriate response, such as activating an alarm or recording footage.

 

Basements: Basements are often considered vulnerable areas, making them suitable locations for motion sensor placement. By installing motion sensors in basements, you can detect any unauthorized entry or movement in these typically low-traffic areas. Ensure the motion sensors are strategically positioned to cover the entire basement space, including windows, staircases, and other access points.
