Infrared Motion Detectors
Infrared motion detectors are critical to any home security system, but most security kits only come equipped with one. If you want to maximize your system, it pays to invest in at least two or three additional motion detectors for inside and outside the house. Home Security Store is proud to offer a wide selection of high-quality motion infrared motion detectors for every major system.
The Science of Infrared
An IR motion detector uses a sensor to detect the infrared radiation produced by body heat. This kind of heat can be detected, but not seen by the human eye. The technology is extremely accurate, and makes it virtually impossible for criminals to slip into a secure environment undetected.
Preventing False Alarms
Heat alone isn’t sufficient to trigger an alarm. The most advanced IR motion detectors only trigger an alarm when the detected heat has the correct temperature, motion, and timing associated with an intruder, thus safeguarding against false alarms. This means the detector will reject false alarms caused by spot temperature changes such as small to medium sized animals, air conditioners, or moving curtains. At Home Security Store, our IR motion detectors are not only extremely advanced, but also easy to install.
Situating Your Motion Detector
The placement of your infrared motion detectors is just as important as the selection you make. Of course, your detectors should be placed in vulnerable areas both downstairs and upstairs (assuming you have a two-story house). However, there are other areas of the home that you may not have considered, including the corner of the house leading to the stairway, and in front of the stairway itself. This will enable you to protect the area leading to the second floor and into specific bedrooms.
A Variety of Options
When a presence is detected, most IR motion detectors send a signal to the control panel to trigger the alarm. But some detectors are equipped with their own alarms, and many will sound an alarm whenever someone tries to tamper with the mechanism.
