What Is the Range of My PIR Motion?

The range of your PIR motion depends on the specific model of the motion sensor that you are using. The range for one passive infrared (PIR) motion detector can be very different from another. Other considerations for the range of a PIR motion sensor include its lens and mounting location.

The table below outlines the approximate ranges for many different passive infrared motion detection sensors. Please note that dual-tec motion detectors are not included in this list. Ceiling mount PIR motion are also not included. Also note that this is merely the default range, and the range may be able to be adjusted using a different lens.
