What is Honeywell 5800PIR res used for?
The Honeywell 5800PIR-RES is a wireless pet immune motion detector that is ideal for residential applications. As a member of the new 5800PIR series wireless motion detectors, the 5800PIR-RES is easier to install and less likely to trigger false alarms than older model Honeywell wireless motion detectors.
What is the range of a PIR?
Since PIR sensors have ranges of up to 10 meters (30 feet), a single detector placed near the entrance is typically all that is necessary for rooms with only a single entrance.
Where do I mount my PIR?
The best place to fit a PIR is in the corner of a room. This ensures maximum coverage of the space as the device maps out its grid. Choke-points are the areas in your home with the most traffic. These could be entry doors or hallways.
What is the minimum range of PIR sensor?
PIR sensor detects a human being moving around within approximately 10m from the sensor. This is an average value, as the actual detection range is between 5m and 12m. PIR are fundamentally made of a pyro electric sensor, which can detect levels of infrared radiation.
What is the maximum range of PIR sensor?
Pyroelectric detectors can detect radiation from the ultraviolet range (100 nm) through the visible and infrared wavelength range to terahertz waves (1000 µm). This is possible as long as the pyroelectric crystal has a suitable absorption coating.
What is the maximum range of PIR Sensor?
Do PIR sensors work in the dark?
Yes, motion sensors work in the dark. The way that a motion sensor detects movement has nothing to do with how light or dark it is in the immediate area. Since infrared energy is present and can be detected regardless of the amount of light in the environment, a PIR motion sensor will work just fine in the dark.
What height should a PIR sensor be?
about 6 to 8 feet high
Most motion sensors are mounted at a height of about 6 to 8 feet high. This should allow the device to detect any human moving in the room. For optimal coverage, we generally recommend mounting motion sensors in the corner of a room.
What height should a motion sensor be installed?
between 6 and 8 feet high
Overall, a motion detector should be mounted on the wall, between 6 and 8 feet high. Some people also put their motion detectors on or near the ceiling. That can work with a standard ceiling height — which is around eight feet — but may not be the best choice for any homeowner who has 10 or 12-foot-tall ceilings.
