PIR sensor – User Information
The PIR sensor is a self-
Position the PIR sensor approximately 1.5 to 2 metres away from the zone where the subject will be detected and secure in position, plug the two connectors into the appropriate sockets of the VersaTrigger. Switch the VersaTrigger on and leave for about two minutes for the PIR sensor to stabilise, during this time the red trigger LED will probably flash several times. Once a steady green LED is present walk into the detection zone and confirm that the red trigger LED flashes, try this a few times to confirm that the detection zone is correct.
Set up the camera and manually focus on the detection zone, connect the camera cable between the VersaTrigger and the camera. Wait for a steady green LED and walk into the detection zone, the camera should now operate.
2. Points to Consider
The VersaTrigger has an in-
Foliage is an excellent radiator of infrared (take a look at any infrared images on the web), positioning the sensor such that any foliage is within range may cause false triggering, this will be exacerbated if there is a breeze and the foliage is moving. Generally, try to position the sensor such that it is facing downwards onto the detection zone and not detecting any stray movement due to a breeze or unwanted intervention.
