PixController Wireless Security Sensor

Introduction
The PixController Wireless Sensor are a set of sensors which send a wireless trigger commands to a PixController M2M Connect Hardware platform products. Sensors can be configured with unique addresses. There are many advantages in using a remote sensor triggered camera system. Not only do they allow the camera systems to be placed in more covert settings they allow the user to use an array of different sensors. See the chart below for the sensor type and application it can be used for. Multiple sensor can be used in a single setup, and several PixController wireless cameras can be used in a single setup. Please see the example setups below.

 

Sensor Type

Sensor Function

 
PIR Motion Sensor

Passive infrared detection (PIR) - body heat and motion will trigger the sensor. Typically used to detect humans or vehicles. Detection based on target heat moving over background heat. The cooler the background heat is and the hotter the target heat is the longer the detection distance will be. Detection distance out to 80'. Transmission distance up to 100'. Operates on 3 AAA batteries lasting 1 year under normal use

 
NO/NC Switch Sensor

Wireless switch sensor. Used with normally open or normally closed contact sensors. Includes 16' cable mounting to transmission tube. Transmission tube includes 3 AAA batteries lasting 1 year under normal use. Transmission distance up to 100'.

 
Magnetic Switch Sensor

Wireless magnetic contact switch sensor for door/windows. The most basic sensor of any alarm system is a door and window magnetic contact switch. This type of contact switch is for normally closed circuits; this means that the when the magnets are lined up, the switch is closed. " Operation gap triggers sensor. Includes 16' cable mounting to transmission tube. Transmission tube includes 3 AAA batteries lasting 1 year under normal use. Transmission distance up to 100'.

 
Pressure Pad Sensor

Wireless pressure pad sensor. Sensor activated with 65lbs of force or more. Sealed pressure pad for outdoor and indoor use. Includes 16' cable mounting to transmission tube. Transmission tube includes 3 AAA batteries lasting 1 year under normal use. Transmission distance up to 100'.

 
 Vibration Sensor

The wireless vibration sensor will trigger the wireless camera system in the event when the sensor is shocked, vibrated, or moved. Includes 16' cable mounting to transmission tube. Transmission tube includes 3 AAA batteries lasting 1 year under normal use. Transmission distance up to 100'.

Example S
etup 1     (1 Sensor Triggers 2 Devices)

This example demonstrates how one sensor can be used trigger two devices. In the example shown a wireless PIR sensor is setup in conjunction with the UndercoverEye Raptor and UndercoverEye Power Box. In this scenario a trigger event from the wireless PIR sensor will activate the UndercoverEye Raptor system and the UndercoverEye Power Box to illuminate the target area from a different vantage point.

When using a wireless sensor to trigger multiple devices you must test the setup in the field to make sure you have good wireless transmission from the sensor to each device. Each device will be triggered simultaneously.


Figure 2

 



Example S
etup 2     (3 Sensors Triggers 1 Device)

In this example we are showing an example of multiple sensors used in triggering one device. The example shown is using (3) wireless PIR sensors to trigger an UndercoverEye MDVR camera recording system. This type of setup is often used in applications for catching trespassers along a remote road entrance or trail. Applications include illegal dumping to ATV trespassing.

In this scenario a sensor can be placed up the trail, in front of the camera, and down the trail. When the suspect enters the trail/road the end sensors will pre-trigger the UndercoverEye MDVR and start record the event before the suspect enters the frame. This is a very big advantage of using remote sensors.


Figure 3

 


Example Setup 3     (2 Different Sensors Trigger 1 Device)

Example 3 demonstrates that different types of wireless sensors can be used in one application. This example shows the uses of a wireless PIR sensor and a wireless pressure pad sensor used to trigger an UndercoverEye MDVR camera recording system. There is no limit to the number of sensor that can be used, and there is no limit to the amount of wireless camera devices that can be used in any particular setup. Each sensor must be in transmission distance to the wireless camera receiving device.


Figure 4
 


Example Setup 4     (Sensor Addressing)

In this example we will show you how you can use multiple sensors and multiple cameras with sensor addressing. Each sensor can be setup to send out 1 of 4 unique address codes. The recording camera camera system can be setup to respond to 1 of 4 addresses, or respond to all addresses. In this example we show a UndercoverEye MDVR system setup to respond to wireless sensor address "A", and two wireless PIR sensors programmed to send the wireless address "A" when triggered.

Near the UndercoverEye MDVR we have placed a Raptor Cellular Remote Sensor version which is setup to only respond to wireless trigger address codes of "B" and a wireless pressure pad sensor programmed to send the "B" address.
