Motion Detector Detection Patterns & Pulse Counts Explanation
Each motion detector's going to have something like this that gives you the detection pattern. This is the top view. So if I were looking at this from the top-- [INAUDIBLE] equipment. This is the detection pattern of what's coming in. Looking at it from the side, it kind of gives you an explanation of-- we have 18 lower range, what they call fingers or zones. There's 46 intermediate ones, and then there's 36 long-range ones. And this goes out to 40 feet. When we talk about-- sometimes you'll hear people with motion detectors talk about pulse count. What they're talking about is the number of these zones or fingers that have to detect a change in infrared energy before the motion will indicate that there is motion. So if you have a pulse count of two, that means you got to break two fingers. If you have a pulse count of one, you only have to break one. So two is more sensitive, one is-- or two is less sensitive. One is more sensitive. [INAUDIBLE] use this too. [INAUDIBLE] use this too, right? Right. Usually. [INAUDIBLE] Yeah, it if has a pulse count setting, right.
