Tips to Get the Most of Your Motion Sensors
Sometime, motion sensors can feel like they never work correctly. False alarms, no alarm, or other mishaps with motions sensors give them a bad reputation in the home security world. But often, there are many things you can do to ensure they work appropriately.
Motion sensors come in many forms—lights, alarms, and cameras—and each of these has their own unique features to help guard your home. They are the do-it-all device that gives users the ultimate control over their property. You can make the most of your motion sensors by understanding how they work and where they can work in your own home.
How Motion Sensors Work
A motion sensor’s primary purpose is to detect when someone uninvited is around or in your home. A motion sensor sends a signal to your security system and if tripped, an alert is sent to you and your monitoring center.
There are two main types of motion sensors used in the home: active motion and passive motion.
- Active motion—works by using sound waves and is typically used in automatic doors, like your garage door.
- Passive motion—uses passive infrared to detect emitted infrared energy or heat. This is the most common type of motion sensor in residential homes.
The Ideal Placement
Placement is a large part of the successful application for motion sensors. They work best when placed high up to cover a large amount of area. It might seem obvious to place motion sensors near a door or window, but this placement can block their range, and any action in front of the sensor only shows slight alterations in infrared energy over time. They also function by detecting a fluctuation in heat, so a sunny window or near a heating element won’t make sense for their placement.
The best placement for a motion sensor is in a corner of the room that has a good viewpoint of your entryways and easily detect any changes in the room.
Tip: How do you lock your home?
When you leave the house, do you check to make sure any back or side doors are locked, and then lock your front door on your way out? When you’re home, do you triple check that all the doors are locked before you head to bed?
If this doesn’t sound like you, you may be part of the 7% of Americans who don’t lock their doors when they leave, or the 23% who leave their doors unlocked while they’re home. This YouGov poll found that many homes across the country are unlocked throughout the day, especially while someone is home. That means over 22 million people leave their doors unlocked when they leave the house. We find that number shocking!
For the rest of us who think about home security and therefore do lock our doors when we leave as well as when we’re home, locks are a big deal. But not every lock is created equal. Read up on types of locks and what they’re good for below…
Knob locks are the kind built into the door handle. Most homes have a knob lock in addition to a deadbolt on exterior doors. These locks should never be the sole security on a door, since the lock is within the knob itself and not in the door like the deadbolt is, making it easier for someone to break in. Instead, knob locks are better used on interior doors that don’t need as much protection, for example a bathroom door you’ll lock for privacy.
Lever Handle Locks
Lever handle locks are easier to open than knob locks, which is useful if handicap accessibility is a concern. These locks have a large push down lever instead of the turning knob, but a similar lock style to the knob lock. As with knob locks, these are not recommended for sole security on exterior entryways, but can be helpful indoors if someone in your home has difficulty turning knobs—again, think bathroom privacy.
