PIR Motion Sensors
A passive infrared motion detector (PIR) is an electronic security device that
detects intruders by "sensing" motion or body heat in the area being protected.
Most PIRs are designed to be used when your family is away from home or when
no one will be passing through the area "covered" by the PIR.
Recent innovations in security technology have resulted in the creation of "pet
immune" motion detectors-allowing dog and cat lovers to enjoy the same level of
protection they would receive with a standard PIR. These state-of-the-art sensors
provide "pet immunity" for animals weighing up to 80 lbs. Pet immune PIRs allow
your pet to move about freely but can still detect an intruder’s movement.

5800PIR-OD Wireless Outdoor PIR Motion Detector
The 5800PIR-OD is a AA lithium battery powered wireless outdoor motion
wireless devices. The 5800PIR-OD is an ideal solution for outdoor sensing
needs in difficult to wire locations— avoiding the costs and time to trench
hardwired solutions. It’s perfect for both residential (activity monitors, e-mail
alerts, turning on video cameras) and commercial (protecting copper theft, utility
and electrical substations, cellular sites, commercial buildings, car lots and
The 5800PIR-OD consists of two passive infrared (PIR) sensors that must both
be tripped to declare an alarm, providing immunity to false alarm sources, pets
and other animals. These sensors can be adjusted to alter the detection range.
The transmitter can send alarm, tamper and low battery condition messages to
the alarm panel.
- Discriminates both large and small animals to reduce false alarms
- Adjustable range patterns from 7' up to 40'. The 90º pattern can also be
adjusted throughout a 180º field of view by simply swiveling the housing.
- Battery saving feature allows you to select five seconds of inactivity (for
higher security requirements or where up-to-date information is critical) or
120 seconds of inactivity after alarm (for initial notification)
- Immune to bright lights from head lamps, sunlight and other light sources
that typically generate false detections
- Full Supervision – The 5800PIR-OD is fully supervised to monitor for low
battery, case tamper and trouble conditions
- Versatile Mounting – Whether you choose to affix the detector to a wall or a
fence post, mounting is simple with the enclosed hardware
- Tamper Protection – The detector has a built-in tamper switch that can
communicate back to the control panel in the event it is removed from the
