Motion Detectors - a Smart Addition

Motion detectors are an important part of any home security system. These sensors are designed to detect movement within a specific area and alert the homeowner or security company if someone is present. There are several different types of motion detectors available, each with its own strengths and weaknesses.

One common type of motion detector is the passive infrared (PIR) sensor. These sensors use infrared technology to detect heat signatures, such as the body heat of a person or animal. PIR sensors are widely used in home security systems because they are relatively inexpensive and can be installed easily. They are also relatively reliable, but they can be triggered by other sources of heat, such as a moving car or a rising sun.

Another type of motion detector is the microwave sensor. These sensors use microwave technology to detect movement. Microwave sensors are more expensive than PIR sensors, but they are also more accurate. They are less likely to be triggered by false alarms, but they can be affected by interference from other sources of microwave radiation, such as a nearby cell phone tower.

A third type of motion detector is the dual-technology sensor. These sensors combine the strengths of both PIR and microwave technology to provide more accurate detection. Dual-technology sensors are more expensive than either PIR or microwave sensors, but they offer the best combination of accuracy and reliability.

When choosing a motion detector for your home security system, there are several factors to consider. The first is the size of the area you want to protect. Larger areas will require more sensors to provide complete coverage. You should also consider the type of environment in which the sensors will be used. PIR sensors are best for indoor use, while microwave sensors are better for outdoor use.

Another important factor to consider is the sensitivity of the motion detector. Sensitivity is the measure of how easily the sensor will be triggered by movement. Higher sensitivity can provide better detection, but it can also result in more false alarms. You should adjust the sensitivity of your motion detectors based on the specific needs of your home and the type of environment in which they will be used.

Once you have selected the appropriate motion detectors for your home security system, you will need to install them properly. This usually involves mounting the sensors at the appropriate height and angle, and ensuring that they are positioned to provide the best coverage. You should also make sure to test the sensors regularly to ensure that they are working properly.

Kedwin was excellent, personable, knowledgeable and answered every one of our questions we had. He was friendly and very good at his job! We felt like we were in the best hands with our security install and couldn't have had a better experience! I would recommend him 10 out of 10 times!

It was great to see different options on how to make my home safe and sound. I was very appreciative that Jacob was attentive to the aesthetic look that I am going for with the house (to keep it in the Victorian time period with limited visibility to modern day technology) and my financial constraints at the moment. Thank you again for providing a great home security installation!

Top Notch from beginning to end. Very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. We had a lot of questions and Jerry answered them all and never made us feel stupid, or bad about asking them. I would; and have, recommended him to my friends and family. Couldn't ask for a more patient, knowledgeable guy. Highly Recommend!
