Wireless Motion Detecting Sensors Posts

Hi DIYers! Today, we're taking a quick look at the upcoming Wireless VERSA Multi-Protocol Motion Sensor. We got the first look at this device at ISC West 2019, and we think it will make for a great addition to nearly any home or business alarm system that needs reliable motion detection.

As you may know, VERSA already offers a door and window contact that uses the same hardware as the Honeywell 5800MINI. The VERSA Contact is currently available in a 2GIG 345 MHz Variant and a Qolsys/Interlogix/GE 319.5 MHz Variant. Well their multi-protocol motion sensor is a complete game-changer, as its wireless frequency can be adjusted to work with the end user's security system.

The Wireless VERSA Multi-Protocol Motion Sensor will feature an adjustable knob that can be used to set the sensor to work with Honeywell, 2GIG, Qolsys, Interlogix/GE, Bosch and DSC Systems. This technology is revolutionary, and it should make things very easy for DIY users in knowing that the sensor will work properly.

Like most motion sensors, the new VERSA motion will use PIR technology to detect movement. It will also offer high and low sensitivity options. The low sensitivity setting will be used in most applications, and it will support pet-immunity. The high sensitivity option will be suitable for applications that require a higher level of security.

VERSA expects that the new motion will be available sometime in the next couple of months. Additionally, we also received word from VERSA that a multi-protocol wireless door and window contact is also in the works. You will soon be able to outfit nearly any wireless system with VERSA contacts and motions!

We encourage you to view the following video for more information about the upcoming motion:

5800PIRZ-RESIntroducing Alarm Grid's Zombie Motion Detector

Traditional motion detectors generally work through infrared detection. When a hot body of a certain size (and yes, by hot body I am referring to all of us here at Alarm Grid), crosses the sensor, it will go off.

So what happens when a member of the undead crosses a sensor?

Well, since they're cold-blooded like a lizard, we assumed nothing would happen, but we weren't really sure since so little is known about these scary creatures. So we ran some tests of our own, rustled up some zombies, and worked on a motion detector that is both pet immune and zombie proficient. When the zombies approach, the 5800PIRZ-RES will let you know right away. Similar to Honeywell's 5800PIR-RES   our most popular motion detector, the 5800PIRZ-RES will let you know when a warm blooded body is approaching, but at the top is what we call the "Cyclops Eye" which looks for big bodies (80 pounds and up) that are below 80 degrees, which is right about where a Zombie running a fever might find itself.

You can have peace of mind against all sorts of undead, since our solution ensures that vampires, zombies, and other creatures of the night will all be stopped in their tracks. Next on the invention train for Alarm Grid: werewolf detectors. Unfortunately, those big dogs are still ignored by pet immunity. But we're working on a solution as we speak.

If you are interested in getting a 5800PIRZ-RES for yourself, we're currently taking pre-orders, call us today, and put your name on the list before we sell out of our first batch!
