Dual Tech Motion Detecting Sensors Frequently Asked Questions

Microwave vs. Passive Infrared Motion Detectors
Two of the most common methods for detecting motion are microwave sensing and passive infrared technology. These two methods are both highly effective in detecting motion, but they operate in completely different manners. Learn more about microwave vs. passive infrared motion detection.

What is a Microwave Motion Detector?
A motion that uses microwave technology will send out microwave signals to determine the structures in a room. The signals will bounce off the structures and return to the sensor with precise timing. A change in this timing means that motion is present. Learn more about microwave sensors.

What is the Best Honeywell Motion Sensor?
Honeywell offers several security sensors that are designed to detect motion. The best one really depends on the type of setting that it will be used in. Once you consider the application of the sensor, you will be able to determine the best one for your needs. Learn more about motion sensors.

Honeywell IS-3035 vs DT8035 Motion Detector?
The difference between the IS-3035 motion and the DT-8035 motion is that the DT-8035 uses PIR and microwave to detect motion. Learn about the two devices.
