Honeywell DT8050 Frequently Asked Questions

What Makes a Motion "Dual Tech"?
A "Dual Tech" motion sensor uses both passive infrared (PIR) technology and microwave technology to detect motion. Both the PIR and microwave sensors must activate in order for the device to trigger. This makes them great for reducing false alarms. Learn more about Dual Tech motion sensors.

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.
