  • The sensor can detect a moving object when its temperature varies from the background temperature.
  • Detection range: ~16 ft (5 m).
  • “Sight Angle” is a cone shape extending at a ~45 degree angle from the center of the IR detector.
  • Metal Enclosure with plastic end caps.*
  • Sensor can “transmit now” using power switch.
  • Battery Life:  Appropriately 10 years when transmitting once per hour – so long that we call these wireless sensors Practically Battery Free™.*
  • Electronics Operating Temperature:  -20° to 60°C (-4° to 140°F)
  • Radio range:  Up to 300 feet in open air.  Repeaters are available to extend range.
  • FCC, IC certified.
  • 915 MHz radio (North America).  Will not interfere with 2.4 GHz WiFi networks.  Contact us if outside North America.
  • Battery:  3V rugged battery pack designed for high vibration environments.
  • Sensor Size (in inches):  3.49 x 2.44 x 1.33 inches.  Antenna: 6 to 8 inches long.  Optional mounting tabs extend another 0.5 inches from both the top and bottom of the sensor.

*Battery life is dependent on the time between motion being detected – and will vary depending on the area being monitored.

Standard version of web-based software supports fast and easy configuration of:

  • Transmission intervals from 10 minutes to days.
  • Text and email alerts.
  • Custom sensor names.
  • Data graphing with user select-able time frames.  Graphs highlight data points outside alert limits.  Zoom-in function.
  • Download data to spreadsheets.
  • Special “Aware State” function sends sensor readings at a faster rate in critical (user defined) ranges.
