Talk about "getting caught in the act," that's exactly what security lights with camera will do. Using a security lights with camera device will not only illuminate the subject with a flood of high wattage bright white light, but it will take still pictures or video images of them too.
The motion sensor itself is an infrared sensor. In fact, the name of the sensor is a Passive InfraRed or PIR detector. It works by constantly monitoring the infrared radiation (IR) in the cameras general field of view. When a sudden change in this radiation occurs, the sensor can detect it, and assumes it is caused by an object in motion. The PIR motion sensor is connected to a relay switch so that when motion is connected, the relay switch turns on the camera to being recording. The recording session ends when either the motion has stopped or after a pre-programmed period of time after the motion has stopped.
Wireless 16 camera motion detector security systems are the ultimate solution for digital video camera surveillance and security. The wireless cameras not only provide quick and easy installation, but can be installed just about anywhere. In addition, the motion detection feature provides for conservative storage needs on Digital Video Recorders (DVRs) and if used with the Tilt-Pan-Zoom (PTZ) function can be used to track objects or individuals throughout a camera’s useful field of view.
