The Interlogix TX-2810-01-4 is an outdoor motion detector that features two independent PIR sensors for accurate and reliable performance. The device offers a programmable detection range, an adjustable pulse count and a variable mounting height. These features provide greater flexibility for the device so that it can be used in a variety of different applications. Additionally, the tilt sensor on the TX-2810-01-4 provides up to 180° pan and 90° tilt. This provides a more accurate aiming for the detection pattern that is hidden behind the device's protective UV lens.
As an outdoor motion sensor, the TX-2810-01-4 is capable of standing up to some tough environments. It has an IP 65 waterproof rating, meaning that it is fully dust tight and resistant to water and humidity. The device will also operate in almost any natural temperature, ranging from -13° to 149° Fahrenheit. This makes it excellent for unheated/uncooled indoor space or outdoor area applications. And with a maximum coverage range of 98 by 79 feet, it can certainly cover a rather vast area of property.
The most unique aspect of the TX-2810-01-4 is its dual passive infrared (PIR) detection sensors. A PIR sensor works by looking out for changes in infrared energy. A change in IR energy is caused by a person or large object with a different IR signature than its surroundings coming into the field of view of the sensor. Each PIR sensor on the TX-2810-01-4 operates individually from the other. The device will not activate unless BOTH of them are triggered within a short period of time. Once this occurs, the device will send a signal to the alarm system to perform a pre-programmed response. This dual-detection process is exceptionally effective in reducing false alarms, and but it still makes it nearly impossible for intruders to invade upon the property. The pre-programmed response for the sensor is configured in zone programming as a response type during the initial enrollment.
A user can program a desired detection range for the TX-2810-01-4. The detection range options include 33 feet, 66 feet and 98 feet. Although the mounting height is adjustable, a height of 10 feet will provide the furthest possible detection range. There is also an option for a pulse count of either 1 or 2 to adjust the device's sensitivity. Additionally, its field of view can be restricted using the device's included curtain sliders. These will block the sides of the field of view. The device uses CR123A batteries that will require replacements every three years or so depending on use.
The TX-2810-01-4 communicates at a frequency of 319.5 MHz. This makes the sensor compatible with all Interlogix Simon Systems and any Qolsys System with a compatible 319.5MHz daughtercard. The device can be readily auto-enrolled with a system and installed with relative ease. Although the device technically has an open air RF signal range of 500 feet away from the panel, placing the sensor within 100 to 200 feet from the system is ideal. Finally, the device includes a tamper cover for added security and protection. If anyone tries to physically disable the device, it will activate the tamper and send an alert to the system. This type of tamper trouble can be setup for text or email alerts from Alarm.com and/or phone calls if the system is monitored by a central station.
