The 5800PIR-OD is a wireless outdoor motion detector powered by four 1.5V AA
lithium batteries. The detector consists of a dual pyro motion sensor assembly
coupled with a wireless transmitter. The transmitter can send alarm, tamper and
low battery condition messages to the system's receiver.
The 5800PIR-OD battery operates up to four years when installed in 120 second
mode and up to one and a half years when installed in 5 second mode.
The 5800PIR-OD uses only Duracell AA lithium batteries, rated down to -40º F
(-40º C). Temperature is no longer an issue with these great new batteries.
Indoor PIRs are typically a single pyro design. The 5800PIR-OD is effectively
two PIRs that have been cross-zoned. To declare a fault, both PIRs have to see
a motion event. Each PIR is looking in a different area, so any debris or animals
moving through the protection area need to be in both fields of view to trigger
Indoor PIRs typically have settings for pulse count 1 or pulse count 2, plus one
or two sensitivity levels. The 5800PIR-OD has settings for pulse count 2 and pulse
count 4 (for very difficult environments). Each pulse count has three different
sensitivity levels. Additionally, you can adjust the range to one of four positions
to help ignore bushes, trees or areas with lots of activity that are not desired.
