Essential Info

This Outdoor PIR Detector from Visonic is a passive infrared (PIR) motion detector designed for outdoor low voltage control applications such as control of gates, lights, CCTV cameras and more. A special built-in photocell and light level control can be activated to limit operation to periods of darkness only. In addition, a special LDR input can be used to disable the photocell, there by allowing the detector to function at all times, in daylight and darkness alike. The PL-1 features a rugged construction with integral swivel bracket that enables aiming the detector at the desired direction. This model PIR, features a 90° fan-shaped coverage pattern with 34 beams in three detection layers, and a maximum coverage area of 40 x 40 feet. The detection range of the PL series is adjustable with a screwdriver-driven potentiometer at the bottom of the unit. The detector operates from a 12 VDC source and has a normally open (N.O.) relay output.

    I used these sensors to augment my video camera system. Although the DVR has the ability to detect motion, the "change in video" detection is very unreliable for outdoor use, being affected by shadows and things blowing in the wind. The Visonic detector is solid and only goes off on people. I have never seen it give a false alarm from either moving objects nor small animals.

    A good outdoor PIR detector, have used them to trigger the alarm input of DVRs in several installations without problems.
    BIN -- fremont, CA   11/28/2011
    It is a good product but not for out door light controls, as advertised. It is for alarms only. The time it stays on is in seconds, not in minutes.
    LEE -- irvine, CA   9/8/2011
    This product was not adequately described in the online literature and the overall quality of the product was less than anticipated. The installation instructions were worthless and incomplete. I will not purchase another Visonic Product
