I need to source some external PIR detectors, I am looking for good quality
ones, the problem being that I want units that can be fitted at Eaves level,
angled to protect around house.
i.e. between 3m and 4.5m above ground level.
Anybody got any recommendation ?
Also should I go for plain PIR or combined PIR & microwave movement
I will also be looking for the same for internal sensors - in case you have
any recommendations for those as well - ceiling & wall mounted types needed.
What are the external PIR's switching, or are they for intruder detection ?
There is an Optex BX 80 N external PIR for intruder detection, but not for
light switching service. In fact, the whole Optex website is worth a visit.
Pyronix also do great PIR and dual tech detectors, so their site is also
worth a visit.
A web search for external intruder detection should throw up a good few
sites for you to wonder through.
For internal PIR's, the best I've seen are the Texecom RF 360 units. We've
actually recommended them on a few of our own jobs now and have had no
problems with at all, not even teething troubles. But for wall mounting you
can't beat the Astra Micra DualTech. It fits in with any decor' because of
its shape and size.
