The W Box OE-PIR433 is a DSC compatible, 433 MHz wireless motion sensor. It uses Passive Infrared technology and has a 44' (13.4m) range with a 90° field of view. The OE-PIR433 is pet-friendly to pets weighing up to 65 lbs. (29.4 kg) when installed based on the guidelines included in the installation instructions regarding pet immunity.
Passive Infrared, often referred to as PIR, motion detectors are an important part of most security systems. They offer interior protection, allowing the user to cover a relatively large area with a single sensor. In this way, they help to make security systems cost-effective. This puts a security system within reach of nearly every single homeowner and business owner.
PIR motion detectors work by sensing the infrared energy within their field of view. When the alarm system is armed, and the motion is active, it can sense even the smallest changes in infrared energy within that field of view. When all of these conditions are met, the motion detector will signal a fault, and the alarm system will trigger an alarm, assuming it is programmed to do so.
The OE-PIR433 is a wireless motion detector. That means that it works using a particular RF frequency. In this case, it is the 433 MHz frequency, commonly used by DSC. Only a panel with a receiver that is set to receive signals at 433 MHz can work with this motion, so be sure your system is compatible before purchasing this motion.
With its compact design, the W BOX OE-PIR433 is suitable for any decor. It has a tamper cover, so if someone tries to remove the cover, it will alert the alarm panel. The expected battery life is ~5 years, so you won't be spending all of your time replacing depleted batteries. It uses a CR123 Lithium battery, which is readily available nearly everywhere. If you have a DSC, or DSC Compatible system like the Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus, IQ Panel 4, or IQ4 Hub and you need a solid replacement for a motion detector, the W BOX OE-PIR433 is just the replacement you need.
