WHY YOU SHOULD CONSIDER GETTING MOTION SENSOR LIGHTING FOR YOUR PROPERTY

Home security has several layers and it’s important to have the right type of technology installed to improve the overall effectiveness of the system. Motion sensors also referred to as motion detectors, are an essential and excellent security addition to your home.


TYPES OF HOME SECURITY MOTION SENSORS

Before we take a look at the benefits of motion sensors, lets understand the basic types available:

Passive ultrasonic detectors

These devices don’t actively send out sound waves; instead, they wait passively for sound events, such as shattering windows or banging doors. The sound waves that are emitted by such occurrences act as triggers for passive ultrasonic detectors.

Active ultrasonic sensors

These sensors use very high-frequency sound waves (that can’t be heard by us), which function like a boomerang. The waves are sent out from the device and return to it, reporting suspicious interruptions in sound waves (if any).

Active infrared sensors

This device emits constant electrical signals that use heat (infrared light) beams which connect to the light detector. If these beams are interrupted in any way, the detector then sounds the alarm.
