How Does a Motion Detector Work?

December 23, 2020

Technology is always evolving, and that is certainly evident in the home security market. Motion detectors themselves are nothing new, but the recent advancements in motion trigger technology can help secure your commercial property or residence, and enhance the safety of you and your family.

Is a Security System Necessary?

According to the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting Program, property crimes in 2015 resulted in an estimated $14.3 billion in losses. In a separate study also conducted by the FBI, there were more than 1.4 million burglaries in 2017.

You Can Be as Hands-On or Hands-Off as You Want

No matter where you are in the world, the wireless security camera system with remote viewing offered by Maryland Security Professionals will be accessible to you. And with our team standing by 24 hours a day to monitor your system, alert you of any potential issues, and contact the police when necessary, our system does all the heavy lifting for you so you can focus on enjoying your life.

How Do Motion Detectors Work?

Just as it sounds, a motion detector sends out a signal when movement triggers it. You see motion detectors in action every day, from automatic doors at the grocery store to automatic drinking fountains at the airport to automatic sinks and soap dispensers in public restrooms.

Active motion detectors emit some sort of energy, such as light, sound, or microwaves, into the surrounding area with a focus on detecting any changes. Passive motion detectors, on the other hand, are more common in home and commercial security systems. The sensor is sensitive to the temperature of the human body, and it detects infrared energy. When someone walks past the sensor, the amount of infrared energy surrounding the sensor changes quickly and is easily detected.

With our advanced security camera system with remote access, we can help prevent crimes from taking place and provide detailed video evidence in case criminal activity does occur. Our Artificial Intelligence software and analytics detect any suspicious activity that is taking place, evaluate the threat level, and then respond accordingly. Our surveillance camera system is visible and obvious around the perimeter of your property, deterring trespassers from even attempting to enter. If someone chooses to enter anyway, our around-the-clock team at our Command Center will immediately notify law enforcement. The entire episode will be captured on video, and it will be admissible in court if necessary.

How Does a Security System with Remote Access Function?

Some people like to keep a close eye on their property when they are away, and our app enables you to watch the surveillance video footage of your property 24 hours a day, no matter where you are. This all-encompassing accessibility is all made possible because our system is wireless and cloud-based.

Our remote security system also features secure and automatic cloud storage of all video footage – accurately time and date stamped – for at least 14 days.

An automated warning response is triggered whenever a trespasser is detected, after which a live person in our Command Center can take over and contact law enforcement immediately.

Who Can Benefit From a Remote Security System?

While this system is highly effective for private residences, it is also ideal for remote property owners who do not live or work on-site and either cannot or do not wish to regularly visit the property to check up on it, perhaps due to the location or distance. This system is particularly convenient for owners or managers of construction sites, special events, or multiple commercial properties.
