Adjusting & Installing Microwave Motion Detectors
[CLICKING METAL SOUND] When you go to do microwave adjustments on motions, you always start with it as low as it will go. Then you walk test, and then it shouldn't detect it as low as it will go. You turn it up little, you walk test again. You just want to walk test until it'll catch you-- in this room, for example, if we were putting in a motion in here, we would probably put it up there, because if somebody comes in this room, they're either going to come in the window, or they're going to come in that door. So you want to mount your motions where somebody is going to walk through the detection pattern. And when it comes to motion detectors, you want to mount it in such a way that you walk across the front of it, not straight toward it, because all those little fingers or zones that we were talking about are spread out over the front of this. So if you walk toward it, you can't really fool because you're going trip more than one zone, but it's harder to trip it. So if you put a motion at the end of a hallway where you going to be walking straight toward it, is that going to be as effective as if you put it where you have to walk across the front of it?
