Motion detection
Identify threats and deliver convenience with video management software and other video technology.
Elevate security and efficiency
Initiate alarm response
Immediately send alarm notifications when motion is detected.
Conserve resources
Activate recording when motion is detected.
Provide convenience
Automatically switch lights on and off based on motion.
Automate tasks when motion is detected
Integrating motion detection hardware and software with your video management software (VMS) can improve your security and help you save on resources by automating functions according to the type of motion and where the motion is taking place.

Within a security context, you can set automatic alarms to go off or notifications to be sent if motion is detected in predetermined areas or on specific cameras. This ensures that the alarms are implemented as soon as possible, without having to wait for human confirmation.
Motion detection can also be useful when it comes to saving resources, whether they are financial, data storage or energy. You can use motion detection as the trigger for other hardware to activate, such as lighting, so that you do not waste energy and costs when they are not needed. Motion detection can also be used to initiate camera recording, eliminating storage of irrelevant footage.

Another benefit of motion detection is convenience as it can be used to trigger commands without human intervention, such as opening doors when approaching movement is detected. Advanced motion detection systems can also analyze the type of motion picked up by cameras and label it as vehicles, pedestrians, runners, groups, etc. It can also provide analysis of the behavior detected in the footage.
Frequently asked questions
Commonly asked questions and answers about motion detection.

How does motion detection work?

The most common type of motion detection sensor is the passive infrared (PIR) sensor. Other sensors for motion detection include ultrasonic and microwave sensors. Although they employ different technologies, they all detect motion which is then converted into electrical signals. If the motion is confirmed, they can then trigger different responses, such as activating lights or alarms.

Which sensor is best for motion detection?

The best choice of sensor will depend on the requirements and intended use of the sensors. Passive infrared (PIR) sensors are the most common and low-cost option. Ultrasonic and microwave sensors are more expensive, but they also have more capabilities, such as longer detection ranges and the ability to work through obstacles.

What is PIR motion detection?

Passive infrared (PIR) motion detection uses sensors to detect changes in infrared radiation emitted by people or objects in their field of view. If an object or person moves in view of the sensors, it will create a change in the pattern of infrared radiation, triggering the sensors to activate. Because PIR motion detection is reliable and low-cost technology, it is often used in security systems and lighting controls.

What is 3D motion detection?

3D motion detection is used in many different fields, such as surveillance, virtual reality, robotics and gaming. It typically uses advanced technologies, such as depth sensors and stereo cameras, to track motion in three dimensions, in multiple directions and depths.

Can motion detectors or security cameras detect motion through glass?

Passive infrared (PIR) motion detector sensors may struggle to detect motion through glass, though some sensors might be able to detect temperature changes on the glass due to nearby motion. Although lighting conditions, camera angles and glass type may affect the accuracy, security cameras with motion detection capabilities can typically detect motion through glass. You should however be wary of visual distortions such as reflection and glare.

How far can a motion detection sensor detect?

Typically, short-range indoor sensors can detect motion up to a range of 10-20 feet (3-6 meters), while long-range outdoor sensors can detect motion at distances of 30 feet (9 meters) or more. This is based on the average passive infrared (PIR), ultrasonic and microwave sensor, but exact range details will depend on the specific make and model of sensor.
