Some Unusual Uses For Motion Detectors

Feb 23, 2008
Motion Detectors(also Door and Window Alarms) are usually portable, wireless devices that will detect motion whenever someone walks in their path.

Motion Detectors come with a variety of sound levels (soft or loud alarms and even chimes). Most have an on-off switch and some will even call the police when someone enters your home or office.

Many people put Motion Detectors at their front doors for nighttime protection so they can be alerted if someone is trying to break into their house.

But how about other uses for Motion Detectors -- everyone thinks they are just used to keep people out of their home. Well, here are a few uses for Motion Detectors and Door Alarms that you might not have thought about:

Place a Door Alarm on your elderly parent's or young child's door to alert you that they are out of the room at night

How about teenagers -- what time do they really come in at night? You will absolutely know the time with a properly placed Motion Detector. Just don't tell the teenager that you set one up or it will spoil the surprise...

Pantries -- place a Motion Detector near your food supply (pantry, refrigerator, even the cookie jar) to let you know when someone is trying to break their diet or eat when they aren't supposed to

Basement -- even though most folks keep this door closed, there are still times when we forget to close it. A Motion Detector will let you know if your young children are anywhere near the steps.

Swimming Pool - if the gate door to your swimming pool is left open, you're just asking for trouble. Unwelcome "guests", children, even small animals, will show up out of nowhere. A Motion Detector with a loud alarm will scare them away as well as alert you that someone is near your pool.

New Puppy - if you keep your new puppy in the kitchen before he's housebroken, you might want to know if he's "escaped" and now has the run of your house to chew, pee, and have a ball without you knowing it. A 120 dB (a very loud alarm) Motion Detector will tell you that Fido is free so you can keep the destruction down to a minimum.

How about the back shed where you keep all your garden and other tools? There's usually a lot of expensive equipment in sheds. Why not set up a Motion Detector or Door Alarm on the shed to scare potential burglars (or even mischievous kids) away. There is even a Motion Detector that will send the alarm to a receiver that you have placed near you -- there's no alarm outside, so you can call the police and catch him in the act.

Retail Stores - A Motion Detector will let you know when a customer comes into your store and can even alert you when you are in another room.

And any other "special" place that you don't want intruders. Just let your imagination go free and I'm sure you will think of a few other places.
