PowerG Motion Sensors
If you need to add motion detection sensors to your PowerG-compatible alarm system, then you will definitely want to consider the wireless PowerG Motion Sensors. These are some of the most advanced wireless motion sensors available today, and they can certainly make a great addition for compatible systems. With a PowerG Motion Sensor, you can be sure that your system will activate if an intruder walks past one of these sensors. These sensors communicate at 915 MHz and will work with compatible systems.
Most PowerG Motion Sensors use passive infrared (PIR) technology to detect movement. This involves looking for the small amount of infrared energy that a person or object gives off. A person or large object coming into the sensor's field of view will cause a large enough change in infrared energy for the sensor to activate. The system will then respond based on the programming settings for that wireless zone.
Some PowerG Motion Sensor feature pet-immunity. This can be very important for users who have pets in the home. A motion sensor with pet immunity enabled will not detect the movement of a small animal moving close to the ground. However, it will still detect the movement of a person walking upright. It's important to understand that pet immunity is not perfect. If a small animal is able to get higher up in the sensor's field of view, then they will still be able to activate the sensor. This makes mounting location very important.
There are many reasons why PowerG Motion Sensors are held in very high regard. For one, these sensors boast an incredible range. This range is dependent on which system they are used with. When these sensors are used with an IQ Panel 2 Plus System, they can work from up to 2,000 feet away in open air. This range is even further with DSC PowerSeries Neo Systems. With these systems, a PowerG Motion Sensor will work from up to 2 kilometers away in open air. Keep in mind that obstacles like thick walls and large metal objects can reduce these ranges.
Another great thing about PowerG Motion Sensors is that they utilize 128-bit AES encryption. Any time the sensor communicates with the panel, the system must respond with a valid encryption key for the command to go through. This makes them nearly impossible for intruders to wirelessly hack into or take over. Many users will appreciate the added security that comes with PowerG Motion Sensors. We strongly recommend encrypted wireless sensors for any user who wants to take extra steps towards keeping their system safe and protected.
The PowerG Motion Sensors come in both indoor and outdoor models. If you plan on using the sensor outdoors, make sure you purchase an outdoor variety. An indoor-only sensor may experience damage if exposed to rain, heavy sunlight, excessive dust or intense winds. Outdoor sensors can be used inside, but they usually cost extra. If you only plan to use the device indoors, then you can save money by purchasing an indoor sensor.
