PIRs and Microwave Detectors Compared

PIR Detectors

PIR (Passive Infrared) presence detectors detect body heat and movement and are ideally suited where a defined detection pattern is required.

Microwave Detectors

Microwave presence detectors are sensitive to movement and are ideal for large spaces and areas that have an awkward shape or where fine motion detection is required.

PIR (Passive Infrared) Detection

PIR (Passive Infrared) Detectionn
PIR detectors work on detecting the movement of body heat. They are better suited to smaller spaces or where a defined detection pattern is required.

Microwave Detectors

Microwave Detectors
Microwave Detectors are sensitive to objects that move, with much greater coverage and sensitivity. They can detect through glass, therefore careful consideration on location is needed in certain applications.
