Pet Friendly Wireless PIR, designed to detect animals weighing over 10 KG, ideal for locations with small animals present.
These Pet Friendly, Battery Powered Wireless PIR's are designed to work in conjunction with all of our KP Wireless Alarm Systems, they have a 10 metre & 110 degrees detection pattern and a wireless range back to the receiver of 80 metres (line of sight).
Although these PIR's are designed to avoid detection of animals of below 10 KG, please keep in mind that if you have more than one small animal present, they could trigger the sensor as their collective body heat may total more than the 10 KG settings. If in doubt consider using Magnetic Contacts & Vibration Sensors on risk doors & windows.

Mounting the PIR Sensor:
The key to successful operation of any PIR sensor is choosing the correct location. A sensor mounted in a unsuitable location has the potential to cause false triggers and reduce performance. The main rules that should be followed are:
1) Mount the PIR into a corner of a room.
2) Avoid heat spots from bright lamps suddenly turning on or off.
3) Do not install immediately above a radiator.
4) Do not install in a glass roof conservatory.
How PIR's Work (passive infrared detector):
All PIR sensors detect changes in infra-red radiation, in the form of heat emitted by a number of bodies including people, cars and to a lesser extent, dogs or other small animals. The bigger the body, the more infra-red radiation is transmitted and the easier it is for a PIR sensor to detect.
The field of view is the area in which changes in infra-red radiation can be detected. The field of view can alter with changes in temperature and the size of the heat source.
The construction of the PIR and Fresnel Lens divide the field of view into a number of zones both vertically and horizontally.
