Does anyone have experience with Motion sensors (PIR) and IR lighting for CCTV? Have you had interference with the two? I need to increase my IR lighting for my cameras BUT the area is also monitored by a PIR motion sensor. I do not want the sensor going off when the IR lights come on. any experiences you can share?

I've added external IR lighting to several cameras to provide a brighter and clearer image at night. No difficulties sensing motion at all.

That 2 different module, you can just add the extra IR , it won't affect the PIR sensor.

Hi I'm angel and I'm a student. Can anybody explain me about difference between IR sensors and motion detectors? I really need this for my assignment..Thank you so much.

I have an IP camera in my garage. It has motion detection, as well as night vision. Both are based upon IR sensors and emitters. No problems so far.

What concerns do you have?

IR sensors are used to measure infrared light coming from object. These are mainly used in motion detectors. Burglar alarm system uses motion detector for detecting movement of person. If the radiation is above the threshold then, it triggers an alarm.

PIR sensor is used for measuring infrared radiations lights and on the other side IR CCTV cameras produce color images on day and night. The Quality of watching picture is depending upon the amount of IR light in the Camera.

Although it's probably too late for an assignment, that's not the difference between the two.

There is actually no difference other than the stated purpose. Both use infra-red (heat) or ultrasonic (sound) sensors to detect the presence of a (usually animate) body moving relative to the stationary sensor and both types of sensors require having a responding device. (There are also, less often encountered, microwave and radio wave sensors.)

Occupancy sensors, most commonly, are located indoors and control lighting. Motion sensors are used as both an indoor and outdoor alert devices, as well as lighting, but usually for a shorter duration than an occupancy sensor.

But, that's entirely different than infra-red lighting, such as the kind that digital cameras use to photograph in the dark

Read this out . Here is the working of PIR.

IR sensors can detect the heat level of the surroundings. Motion detectors detects moving objects.

Most motion sensors use passive infrared (PIR) sensors, that is, they detect motion by changes in heat.
