A motion sensor, also called a motion detector, is a common device being found in commercial buildings today. These handy units can be used to detect people or objects near the device, and then trigger a set reaction. They are most commonly used to trigger the doors of a building to open and close, so that people entering and exiting a building can do so hands free. They can also be used to trigger lighting systems for a building, saving power by only turning lights on when needed.
While most people think of them as a handy device to open doors or turn on lights, they can also function as a key part of a security system. Motion sensors can be used to monitor a property line, doors, gates, and other points of access to alert users of any detected motion. In this way, they can be instrumental in the detection of intruders or other threats near your building.
Motion sensors are becoming a fixed feature in most security systems today, and make a welcome addition to any residential or commercial space.
