Motion Sensors

Motion Sensors are useful for commercial as well as for residential applications. Vacker Kuwait supplies and provides installation services for Motion Sensors in different buildings, offices, public and residential areas. We have a wide range of motion sensors, available in different types and shapes and we supply them all over Kuwait in regions like Hawalli, Al Ahmadi, Sabah as Salim, Al Farwaniyah, As Salimiyah, Al Fahahil, etc. After purchase we give customers high level assistance in the installation process. Also, before purchase our engineers give customers the correct selection.

Motion Sensors technology and its Operating principle

The primary principle of a motion sensor is to monitor motion in a linear path or in certain areas. When the motion or movement happens in the applicable areas, it detects and a signal is provided to circuits. Then these circuits in the device or instrument carry out the related internal functions. Sensors are to detect motion and give signal to the instrument.

Detection of the movement might be of different types. They are like movement of mechanical parts, human beings, machinery or mechanical parts etc. These types of sensors are available in outdoor as well as in indoor applications. Sensors are nothing but switches, they switch the action of movement to the instrument. Hence, they are also known as Motion Sensor Switch.

Areas in Kuwait to use Motion Detectors and Motion Sensors

Motion sensors are widely used in the field of Automation in commercial and industrial applications. Vacker Kuwait supplies Motion Sensors in regions of Kuwait such as Hawalli, Al Ahmadi, Sabah as Salim, Al Farwaniyah, As Salimiyah, Al Fahahil, etc. Motion Sensors are very useful in the segment of energy conservation. Energy is often used more when it is available continuously. For this reason, motion sensors detect its need and accordingly minimize its usage. This concept is allowed to various sectors as listed below:

Motion sensors are also known as Movement Detectors and Movement Sensors as they detect movement. Based on client requirements, we setup the sensors either in home (Home Automation) or in office (Office Automation). We integrate systems in buildings’ or in offices’ areas like corridors, rooms, individual sections, etc. Our engineers discuss with the customer and then decide about the sensor type and areas to be implemented, the relevant cost, etc.

Bannet, KNX are the types of protocols used by the sensors. Nowadays, motion sensors are easily accessible to the latest automation based on these protocols. It integrates to total BMS or building management system. There are two sensors which are mostly used. They are:

  • Infrared Sensors
  • Ultrasonic Sensors

Motion Sensors working mechanism or how motion sensors work?

Different motion sensors have different mechanisms of flow for the detection. Basically, it is based on motion as input and action as output. Motion sensors use different methods to collect the data as motion. As a core, there are two parts. One is transmitter which transmits the data and another is receiver which receives the data sent by the transmitter. Transmitter function is to transmit the data, it transmits different waves which is based on the used technology. Then, waves are collected by the receiver to the sensor which is after delay. Motion detector detects parameters in between the reception and the transmission by transmitter. Here, reception analyses and finds that the motion has occurred and then the system starts performing the appropriate action.

In general, delay timing and adjustable sensitivity are two functions that motion sensors have. Adjusting movement detection is done by Sensitivity. Minute movement is detected by the system. Switching of the movement stops is done by the Delay timing functionality. Delay timing is referred to as the interval. If the system is set for 50 seconds delay timing then the movement of the system on ideal position of 50 seconds, it will stop. If you take example of sensor door, if the door delay timing is set for 50 seconds then it will be closed after 50 seconds in ideal stage.

There are other examples for light. Same as above if it is set for same time, light will be off at that time. These are also called as Motion Sensor Lights supplied by Vacker Kuwait in regions of Kuwait such as Al Ahmadi, Hawalli, As Salimiyah, Sabah as Salim, Al Farwaniyah, Al Fahahil, etc.
