Pir's

Recommended Posts

Mark, or anyone else ever tried this little PIR? What caught my eye on this one was it's suppose to work form .8 volts to 9 volts. Current draw is only 50ua's. 3 of them for $10.51 shipped.

I got some here now that I'm going to try out. Might put it on that Picamoo board and have it turn on the LED's for testing? Of course I won't use the Fresnel that comes on it.

No, I have surfed them like crazy to trying to find something cheaper than driveway alerts, have one of these coming in the mail link tried this because of working temp from -4 to 140 degrees and 90% humidity and the SC2262 chip is also used in driveway alert. Something else I learned which you may have known I found this in a pir datasheet was the use of a 10k resistor on output

I think these were the pir's you used on 360 cam?

 

I also include 10k on picaxe input and seem to have better luck even with the old ebay pirs. Just in testing not in field really have to wait till summer. I am going to try in a camera build, if I get a few false triggers it is really not a big deal.

That looks like the one I used on the 360, it had the cable on it just like that one does. Let us know how it works.

I have use the 10K on the input of the picaxe pin, should do the same thing as the one you show there to help from getting false triggers. I'll let you know how these that I got work when I try them out.

I didnt know you did a 360 cam. I must've missed that. Do you have a link to the thread? The PIR's have been my weak link as well. Really haven't been happy with any of the modules I've tried so far. I was really hoping the low power minis near the bottom of this link http://www.futurlec.com/PIR_Sensors.shtml would work better than they do, but no luck. My goal is to not use a module, but more knowledge on my part is still needed.

This is my third one, it has gone through a few revisions. I like this one the best.

What were results with the minis? I have found in testing PIR has to be enclosed or a slight breeze will hamper results, I found inside you may have no problems but outside really makes a difference.

I only had 1 mini that actually worked out of the 5 I ordered, and it falsed like crazy.

VERY COOL! I really like how it tracks. I planned on doing that later.
