Honeywell IS3035 - PIR Motion Detector with 40' by 56' Coverage Range Reviews
Submitted on 08/01/2019 Alarm Grid
We strongly recommend the Honeywell IS3035 as a hardwired PIR motion sensor. Although it isn't the most advanced motion detecting sensor on the market, it is perfect for most residential users who don't need all the fancy features of a more powerful motion sensor. If you have a hardwired system, and you are looking for an affordable, simple, and effective motion sensor, then you really cannot go wrong with the Honeywell IS3035 PIR Motion Sensor.
Our technicians have found that the Honeywell IS3035 works great across its detection coverage area of 40 feet by 56 feet. You can also adjust the sensitivity for the Honeywell IS3035 by increasing or decreasing its pulse count. For pet-immunity, you will want to use a high pulse count and low device sensitivity. The motion sensor provides pet immunity for small animals weighing up to 80 pounds, and our technicians have verified that this is accurate. Other great features for the Honeywell IS3035 include its bug guard to keep out insects and its LED status light for troubleshooting.
While the Honeywell IS3035 is an easy-to-use hardwired motion sensor, it is not the right answer for every situation. If you have a wireless alarm system, then you will probably want to go with a wireless motion sensor. This is because wireless motion sensors are easy to install and adjust for DIY users. If preventing false alarms is your top priority, then you might go with a dual-tec motion sensor instead. Finally, if you need something more powerful, you might go with something like the Honeywell IS3050A instead. But when used in its intended applications, the Honeywell IS3035 Motion Sensor works great. That is why it gets 5 stars from us.
Bottom line, if you are looking for a simple hardwired PIR motion sensor for residential use, then the Honeywell IS3035 is a good choice.
