A good home security system should have motion sensors.
With motion sensors, your security system can detect movement inside your home.
Motion detection technology uses electronic sensors that can identify motion. Typically, security systems will come with one or more of these four types of sensors:
- Infrared Sensors: These sensors look for body heat movement.
- Ultrasonic: Pulses are sent out. The sensor measures the waves reflecting off moving objects.
- Microwave: Similar to ultrasonic, but sends out microwave pulses. It’s very similar to a police radar gun.
- Tomographic: Monitors radio waves and senses disturbances caused by movement.
Today’s security motion sensors are used in a variety of ways. They can be used with motion sensor security cameras that record when movement is detected as well as with security lighting.
Most importantly, motion sensors trigger home security alarms during burglaries. A security system with quality motion detection sensors will help reduce the risk of a burglary.
In fact, a study by Rutgers University showed that residential burglar alarms significantly reduce crimes in neighborhoods.
If you’re worried about pets or small children triggering motion sensors, you don’t have to worry. Today’s quality motion sensors can distinguish between pets and people.
