What Is the Best Cold Temperature Detecting PIR Sensor?
The 5800PIR is a motion sensor that can also be programmed as a temperature sensor. There is also the 5800PIR-COM, which has an extended detection range. Learn about the 5800PIR.
Added:

What is a Walk Test?
You should perform a Walk Test after installing a new motion sensor to make sure it responds properly and won't cause false alarms. Learn about Walk Tests and how they work.
Added:

What is a PIR Motion Sensor?
Passive infrared (PIR) technology is the most common method for detecting motion. This involves looking for changes in infrared energy. Learn about PIR 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.
