What are motion sensors used for?

A motion sensor, or motion detector, is an electronic device that uses a sensor to detect nearby people or objects. Motion sensors are an important component of any security system. When a sensor detects motion, it will send an alert to your security system, and with newer systems, right to your mobile phone.

Do motion detectors take pictures?

If the battery-powered sensor detects an intruder it takes a snapshot, keeping you informed through your smartphone. It can even take pictures in the dark.

How do motion sensor cameras work?

Passive infrared sensors: PIR sensors work by detecting temperature changes in an area. Sudden heat increases register as movement. In other words, these motion-detecting sensors detect infrared energy from moving objects.

Do all security cameras have motion sensors?

Most security cameras have motion detection, but not all of them do it well.

Do indoor motion sensors have cameras?

Motion sensors can have a camera and record if the sensor is tripped. Though these cameras only record when there's a change in motion or the sensor picks something up. Otherwise, no recording will be relayed to the DVR/NVR. Several motion sensor models also provide integrations with external camera systems.
