The Beginner's Guide to Motion Sensors
Find out how motion sensors work to help make your home safer. This guide walks you through the advantages of motion sensors in security systems. More
A motion sensor (or motion detector) is the linchpin of your security system, because it’s the main device that stays one step ahead of the burglars. Like something from Mission Impossible,
motion sensors may use multiple technologies to detect movement in an area, sensing when someone’s in your home. If a sensor is tripped, a signal is sent to your security system’s control panel, which connects to your monitoring center, alerting you and the monitoring center that something’s amiss at home. This guide will answer all your questions about motion sensors: the different types, proper placement, and how to use them.
