Different applications require different solutions and the world of detection is all too familiar with this notion. This short article will provide an explanation as to what exactly is the difference between Motion Detection and Presence Detection.
Motion Detection is generally less sensitive and designed to detect larger ranges of motion such as an arm moving thus best suited to hallways and area’s of high traffic.
Presence Detection is significantly more sensitive so will detect finer movements such as a hand moving. They are designed for area’s of small movement such as office spaces and seating area’s.
Presence Detection is the more common solution in the realm of smart home as the level of automation involved requires accurate and exact results, i.e.: switching correctly, always!
We have some excellent options available for Presence Detection including:
- Theben Planospot: a 4x4M Range detector for standard applications
- Theben thePassa: a long range detector for corridor and isle applications
- Theben thePixa: an Optical detector with both Presence and Motion Detection facilities
