PIR Sensors means Passive Infrared Sensor. This used Infrared technology to detect objects in its vicinity. The general applications are Motion and Presence Sensors for controlling lights or other electrical circuits based on the motion and presence of human beings. These sensors come in different range of distances and sensitivity to meet different indoor and outdoor requirements.
These are called Passive because they do not generate or search around for objects.
The difference between Motion and Presence sensors can be seen at our blog article here.
The presence sensors are also called Occupancy sensors/detectors
The common usage of such PIR sensors are :
- Class Rooms
- Bath rooms
- Out door lighting
- Car park
The applications are limitless and main purpose is energy conservation. Electrical or control circuits of any area can be activated and deactivated based on presence of human beings
