Outdoor Motion Detectors
Outdoor motion detectors are designed to protect the perimeter of your home or business, and most utilize passive infrared (PIR) technology. The outdoor detectors are a bit more sophisticated than your standard indoor motion detectors, but they secure some of the most critical areas of your home. The best time to stop an intruder is before he even has the chance to enter.
Choosing Your Outdoor Motion Detector
When buying any outdoor motion detector, there are certain things you need to consider. For instance, should you go with wired or wireless? You definitely want to have a weatherproof model, given the outdoor environment. Bear in mind, though, that some are built for more rugged conditions than others and are equipped with a better, more durable housing and lens. The detectors should also have features to safeguard against false alarms caused by sunlight. When making your selection, you should also consider whether the device is easy to install and maintain, and pay attention to the energy efficiency. The most energy-efficient models only operate when movement is detected.
Finding the Ideal Range
Some outdoor motion detectors are designed with a stronger detection pattern than others. Be sure to consider the range of the detector when making your purchase. There are some detectors designed to fit specifically with a given home alarm or surveillance system, but then there are some that can easily be added on to any wireless system, effective with any manufacturer’s transmitter and receiver.
Finding the Right Location
Before purchasing an outdoor motion detector or detectors, you should first figure out how many you need and where you would like to install them. This can be done by looking over your property. Other than the front and back door, you should survey the spots that you think an intruder might try and enter. With a bit of planning and strategy, you can turn your home or business into a virtually impenetrable fortress.
