The intruder alarm sensor is part of an alarm system that detects motion and sends a signal to the rest of the system. The signal can come from a magnetic contact sensor, passive infrared (PIR) detector, or microwave motion detector. Some sensors have multiple detection options, for example, PIR detectors can be set up to detect both body heat and movement. Entry/exit delays can be set to ensure that doors are closed before triggering an alert. The perimeter protection feature allows you to specify areas in your home that should not trigger an alarm for example, if your dog has free reign of the house when you’re away on vacation but would still set off an intruder alarm if he decided to start digging under one of your fences (happens).
Detection Options of Intruder Alarm Sensor
In addition to the standard features of a fully-featured intruder alarm system, the Intruder Alarm Sensor also offers:
- Motion detection. The sensor can detect motion and send you an alert if someone enters your home or office while you’re away. This feature is useful for keeping tabs on pets and children, as well as protecting against theft when you’re not around.
- Infrared detection. If someone breaks into your home or office through a window or door, this feature will sense the breakage and automatically sound an alarm so that intruders won’t be able to get away without being noticed by neighbors or police officers who are patrolling nearby streets (depending on where your home/office is located).
- Audio detection – If someone tries to tamper with any part of your system (elevator buttons), then audio will be picked up by this sensor which sends an alert directly to your phone via push notification so that no one can disable it without being detected first!
Entry/Exit Delay Settings
The entry/exit delay settings allow you to set the amount of time that must pass before an alarm is triggered or reset. This can be helpful if you want to give someone time to leave your home but don’t want them leaving with any valuables behind.
- Entry Delay: When this option is enabled, a sensor will wait until no motion has been detected for 30 seconds before sounding an alarm. This can be helpful when someone enters through a door and then closes it behind them as they leave it gives them enough time so that they don’t trigger any false positives (i.e., having their presence cause an unnecessary alert).
- Exit Delay: By default, sensors will remain silent after detecting motion until either 1 minute has passed without any further activity or if another sensor detects movement within 50 feet of the first one within 30 seconds after its initial detection; this allows people who are nearby but not necessarily directly next door (or even in another room) from triggering false positives themselves by walking past or entering into range again quickly after exiting through one door only slightly earlier than before.
Perimeter protection is a feature that can be added to any alarm sensor. It’s different from traditional motion detectors, which only cover a small area and are designed for indoor use. Perimeter protection works by detecting movement outside of your home or business, then sending an alert to the Alarm system controller inside the building. This allows you to know when someone has entered or left your property without having them walk past a window or door where they might set off an interior motion detector (like those used for burglar alarms). With perimeter protection enabled on an alarm sensor, it will detect anything within its range – including people, animals, and vehicles. So long as they’re moving!
Scheduling and Auto-Arm/Disarm, Tamper Alerts
Scheduling and Auto-Arm/Disarm. The Intruder Alarm Sensor allows you to schedule your alarm using the app or web portal. You can set up recurring alarms for different days of the week, so you don’t have to remember when your sensor should be armed or disarmed each day. For example, if you want an alarm on Saturday morning but not Friday night, just tell us in advance! Tamper alerts will let you know if someone has attempted to remove or disable your sensor while it’s armed, no one will be able to get past our security system without being noticed by us first!
Many features available
There are many features available on intruder alarm sensors. These include:
- Detection options, including glass-break and motion detection
- Entry/exit delay settings, which allow you to set the amount of time that must pass before an alarm sounds if a door or window is opened or closed
- Perimeter protection, which can be used to monitor areas around your home (such as fences) for signs of tampering or break-in attempts
- Wireless connectivity so you can access your system from anywhere in the world using either internet or cellular service
We’re excited to announce our new intruder alarm sensor! In addition to being able to detect motion, this new sensor can also tell when a door or window opens. This means that if someone tries breaking into your home through an unlocked window or door, it will trigger the alarm immediately. You can see that there are many features available on intruder alarm sensors. It’s important to know what each of these features does so that you can choose the best one for your home or business.
