Detect using PIR motion Sensor

Postby venu » Mon May 21, 2018 10:36 pm

how to detect how long a person is inside the room using PIR motion sensor?
1 = motion detected
0 = no motion
when i go into the room, since there is the motion the output is "1",then in a few milliseconds output shows "0" while i'm still inside and giving motion, then when i come out its shows "1". I have check the sensitivity as well the time delay on the motion sensor, the output still the same.

any other way to measure the time taken for a person inside the room ?
any other suitable sensor instead of motion sensor ?

Thanks in advance :)

Hi venu,

You can manipulate the signal and action using program. How about when the sensor detects motion, it will count let say 5 seconds. So everytime it detects, the count will reset to 5s.

There have another sensor which provide better result which is Microwave Radar - Human motion Sensor. You can check out this video
Cytron Technologies invest time and resources providing tutorial, training and support for STEM education and maker movement. We need your support by purchasing products from Cytron Technologies. Thanks.
