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.
Ademco/Honeywell has alarm detection sensors for wired, wireless and V-Plex
5890PI Wireless PIR Motion Detector
with Pet Immunity (40 Lbs)
- 35' x 45' (10.6m x 13.7m) coverage pattern
- Immune to pets up to 40 lbs.
- Split-Zone Optics technology
- For use with Q.E.D. control panels only

Every ADEMCO Wireless Sensor contains a serial number that is as distinctive
as a fingerprint - over one million different serial numbers are possible. This
unique "fingerprint" serves two purposes:
- The location of an intruder within the area protected by an alarm system
can be identified at both the control panel and the central station.
- Wireless signals easily penetrate walls and can travel over a hundred
feet. Neighboring installations, which may use similar wireless systems,
can receive these signals as well as the desired receiver. However, due to
the uniqueness of each Point ID, it is virtually impossible for any
peripheral in the neighboring system to have the same serial number.
