Does a Honeywell VISTA 20P Support Motion Sensors?
A Honeywell VISTA 20P can support hardwired motion sensors. It can also support 345 MHz wireless sensors if a wireless receiver is added. Learn about motion sensors.
Added:

Do Alarm Motion Sensors Work Through Glass?
Motion sensors detect changes in infrared (IR) energy. This cannot be done through modern glass, so motion sensors do not sense through glass. Learn more about PIR motion sensors.
Added:

Do Motion Detectors Work Through Windows?
Motion sensors are usually unable to detect motion through glass. The infrared energy needed to activate a motion won't easily pass through glass. Learn more about motion sensors.
Added:

Do Motion Sensors Work in the Dark?
Passive infrared motion sensors work by detecting changes in infrared energy. This allows them to work in the dark, Learn more about motion detection sensors and how they work.
