Wireless home security is being adopted by hundreds and thousands of households all over the world. There are wide range of products available in home security space, ranging from complete home security suite to simple motion sensors.
In today’s article, we are sharing information about a basic home security accessory , a wireless motion detector/sensor and its integration with wireless doorbells.
What is a motion detector or motion sensor?
A motion detector is an electronic device that detects moving objects especially moving people and alerts the base unit. When integrated with other devices (such as a wireless doorbell), a motion detector can sense the movement in it’s installation area and send signals to the base unit which in turn alerts the user via a visual or sound notification.
Motion detectors are widely used by people for various purposes such as monitoring people movement around the home, garage , sensing movements around door and windows.
Motion detectors come with varying operating ranges (area they cover). Since they are wireless devices , the higher the range, better the coverage. Again, it depends upon your need.
Motion detectors are widely used as an important accessory for preventing burglary (theft).
Technologies such as light based sensing , infrared ray based sensing and many others are used in motion detecting devices.
That’s a short introduction about motion detectors and sensors.
How you can enhance your home security with a basic motion detector?
A motion detector can be integrated with a feature rich wireless doorbell such as RCWL300A1006/N By Honeywell
When you sync the wireless doorbell with the motion sensor, it serve a basic purpose of motion sensing and alerting the base unit when some one approaches your door or wherever you have placed the motion detector.
