Smart Motion Sensors
A smart motion sensor is the linchpin of your home security system, because it’s the main device that detects when someone is in your home when they shouldn’t be. A smart motion sensor uses one or multiple technologies to detect movement in an area, so if a smart motion sensor is tripped, a signal is sent to your security system’s control panel and in turn your mobile device.
Today, motion sensors are wireless. Wireless sensors are very easy to set up. They do not require drilling, and they communicate with the other security system components wirelessly.
Most contact motion sensors are passive infrared sensors. They trigger an alarm if the protected door or window is opened while the system is armed.
These days motion sensors can be set up to ignore a large animal or multiple small animals without setting off a false alarm. Some pet immune motion sensors have a sensitivity level that can be adjusted for families active animals.
Cameras controlled by motion sensors can save you memory storage by not recording hundreds of hours of useless footage they only capture the important stuff.
