Frequently Asked Questions

What is PIR Motion Sensor and Technology?

Designed to detect motion from a heat-emitting source (such as a person entering a room) within its field-of-view and automatically switch lights ON and OFF. Sensors have segmented lenses. For units to see motion, the person must cross between two segments or bands. The distance between the segments or bands increases the farther you are from the sensor, so motion has to be larger the farther you are from the unit. PIR sensors are considered line-of-sight sensors, meaning that the sensor must be able to have a direct line-of-sight to the person making the motion.
