Wireless motion sensors can be an integral component of home security. Not only can motion sensors detect outside intruders, they can also be used to ensure that pets or children are not in areas that they shouldn’t be. At Link Interactive, we offer a selection of window and door wireless motion sensors to meet your residential or commercial security needs.

Different Types of Wireless Motion Sensors

At Link Interactive, you can find a wide array of different types of motion sensors. You can be sure to find the perfect one to serve the security service that you are looking for:

Thin Door / Window Contact Sensors

These are the classic sensors that you can place onto any regular door. These sensors send signals to the control panel when the magnet that is mounted near the sensor is moved away as the door/window is being opened. This makes this kind of sensor ideal for other objects that can open and close.

Image Sensor

Image sensors are perfect for the home owner who wants to get image feeds of what is triggering their motion sensors.

2GIG IMAGE1 Sensor

This image sensor is adjustable to be less sensitive to pets. In addition, it can still provide images at night.

Infrared Motion Sensor

Infrared motion sensors works by detecting heat changes and movement in the sensor’s surrounding areas. When infrared energy changes at a rapid pace, the sensor is triggered. When setting up infrared motion sensors in a pet-friendly home, refer to the installation guide for tips on doing this properly.

PIR-1 Wireless Passive Infrared Motion Sensor

This motion sensor can distinguish pets up to 40 pounds. It is perfect for larger rooms, with dimensions up to 30 x 35 feet.

Wireless Motion Sensor Tips

Wireless motion sensors are a critical part of home security system, however there are a few steps you should take to make sure your wireless motion sensors are set up properly.

  • Keep motion sensors away from temperature sensitive areas. A change in
    heat can trigger the motion sensor, even if it’s just a cloud passing by the window that’s covering the sun.
  • Place your motion sensors in the path that burglars are most likely to take.
  • Always place them near the front door, back door, patio door and garage door, as these are the places your burglar will most likely enter and exit from.
  • Set up motion sensors parallel to the path that potential intruders will be taking. Sensors work best when they the target walks pass it rather than directly towards it.
  • Try to place sensors in areas that intruders will have to pass by no matter what. For example, the beginning of a staircase would be vital for motion sensor placement.
  • Hide motion sensors in places where burglars won’t be able to easily spot them. Burglars will try to sneak their away around motion sensors when invading a home.

Be sure to read our helpful Motion Detector Camera Guide for some additional tips on using your motion sensors and image sensors.
