How do motion sensors for outdoor lighting work? How should you determine if your home should have one?
Motion sensors for outdoor lighting are a great way to deter unwanted guests on your property while also alerting you of their presence. Motion sensors work by detecting infrared waves, sensing motion in any direction over a given range. They work best in detecting warmer objects such as people, animals or vehicles. When motion is detected the light turns on for a set period of time.
Other types of motion sensors can be set up to activate video cameras, take still images, and alert your security panel to trigger an alarm. If you have entrances, windows, or areas around your home that are out of sight or not well lit, installing motion sensors with outdoor lighting is an ideal way to better protect your home, property, and family. – Link Interactive
