What are the uses of motion sensors that you may not have known about?

  1. Open and close automatic doors
  2. Switch lights on when someone enters a room
  3. Turn on water faucets and toilets
  4. Protect churches from theft and tampering

 

A motion sensor (or motion detector as it is more commonly known) is a security system used to detect movements around a perimeter. Besides protecting homes from intruders, did you know that motion sensors are what automatically open doors in grocery stores and activate hand dryers in restrooms?

High-quality motion sensors from a trusted electrical supplier in Metro Manila such as Meiji Electric can be used for both residential and commercial use. When interconnected with an automated system, it can be programmed to do a number of tasks. Meiji Electric even offers a motion sensor that detects human voices through infrared technology!

Want to learn more about the uses of motion sensors that you may not have known about? Read on!

 

Open and Close Automatic Doors

Open and Close Automatic Doors

Are you the proud owner of a grocery store with automatic sliding doors? Are your children always excited to accompany you to the store so that they can play with these doors? Well then, you have motion sensors to thank for that.

Particular motion detectors called active sensors are used to detect movement so that it can signal doors to open or close. Also called Radar-based motion sensors, these electrical products emit tiny waves across a certain range. These waves hit objects around the device and reflect it back into the sensor. Any motion in front of the device will cause a shift in waves, which the sensor will detect and use to activate the sliding doors.

Another use for this type of motion sensor is to automatically turn on your house lights for you once you enter the room.

 

Switch Lights On When Someone Enters a Room

Switch Lights On When Someone Enters a Room

Do you happen to have a variety of lights inside your home? Give yourself an easier time turning on all these lights after a long day at work by installing motion sensors.

Meiji Electric’s MS-02 is a ceiling-type motion sensor that also acts as a fully automatic indoor light controller. It can detect you entering through the door from a distance of 3 to 6 meters, automatically turning all your house lights on as you enter through the door. Make sure to position the sensor right above your doorway in order for it to accurately detect your entrance.

Besides sliding doors and house lights, did you know that motion sensors can also turn on water faucets and flush toilets?

 

Turn On Water Faucets and Toilets

Turn On Water Faucets and Toilets

More and more shopping malls are choosing to shift to motion-activated water faucets and toilets. Instead of pressing a lever after you finish using the toilet, it automatically flushes after you stand up. When you wash your hands, simply place your hand under the sink head and water will flow out. The integration of motion sensors in restrooms is incredibly useful for sanitary purposes.

Both toilets and faucets use a type of sensor that detects your presence rather than movement. A sensor will detect your presence once you sit on the toilet and once you stand up and leave, you will be out of its range. Your absence will be its signal to activate the toilet’s flush. In terms of faucets, it detects your presence once you place your hand under the spout, activating the water. Once you take your hand off, it detects your absence and turns it off.

Motion detectors found on toilets are called wall-mounted motion sensors. These can also be utilized in establishments such as churches to protect them from theft and tampering.

 

Protect Churches From Theft and Tampering

Churches and other establishments left unused at night may be at risk of theft and tampering. In order to prevent this possibility, churches have installed motion sensors that will trigger a security alarm if an unwanted intruder forcefully makes its way into the establishment. This can also be used for businesses that are not open for 24 hours.

Meiji Electric’s MS-01 is a high-quality motion sensor that can be strategically placed around a building to protect all possible entryways. Take note that motion sensors work best when motion is parallel to it, not walking directly toward it. It would make sense for you to install sensors along walls that an intruder would walk beside, such as a narrow pathway or a hallway.

Motion sensors can work as an efficient security system on their own, but their capabilities can grow even more when integrated with other electrical systems.

 

Key Takeaway

Avail of affordable yet high-quality motion sensors from a trusted electrical supplier in Metro Manila such as Meiji Electric for your industrial and residential needs. Protect your property with this efficient security system. Connect sensors to computerized systems to automatically activate the lights in your home. Or create a more relaxing experience for your customers by installing motion sensors that can open and close doors as well as faucets. Boost efficiency both at home and in your business by installing high-quality motion sensors.

Invest in your own motion sensors from a trusted electrical supplier in Metro Manila such as Meiji Electric to see for yourself exactly what it can do.

What are the benefits of a motion-sensored home?

  1. Increased home security
  2. Energy and cost savings
  3. More convenience

 

Motion sensors are devices that detect any and all kinds of movement in designated spaces. You can get them from many electrical companies in the Philippines and install them in buildings – whether commercial or residential. There are a wide variety of motion sensors available and they are categorized according to the type of technology they use.

The most basic types are active and passive infrared sensors and active and passive ultrasonic sensors. Aside from these four, there are microwave motion sensors, tomographic motion detectors, gesture detectors, and more. All these are capable of detecting the slightest movement but they are utilized in different ways. Although most commonly integrated into alarm systems, it is not unusual for them to be connected to other things such as lighting systems and camera setups.

Out of everyone, homeowners actually stand to gain the most by installing these motion sensors in their home. Passive infrared (PIR) sensors – the type most commonly installed in residential homes and areas – offer lots of benefits and we’ve listed them all in this article!

 Increased Home Security

Increased Home Security

Burglars, vandals, and other criminals love to start their operations at night when everyone is deep in sleep and lights are all turned off. The encompassing darkness gives them an opportunity to do their deeds incognito and avoid detection or identification in the event that something goes wrong. Sometimes, they may even lurk around and wait for you to retire for the night before invading your home.

You can counter this by installing motion sensors around your home and connecting them to your security system (if you have one) or lighting system. The moment an intruder steps foot in a motion-sensored home, alarms will blare and lights will turn on. These things should scare them off enough that they won’t ever dare to come back again.

 

Energy and Cost Savings

People often turn all outdoor lights and leave some interior ones on to scare off and trick criminals. Even when they’re away from home, they tend to do this in hopes that these people would keep out. This method is actually quite effective but it comes at such a high cost. Energy consumption is increased and so is their energy bill.

On top of this, the lifespan of their light bulbs are cut short and replacements are needed more often which means more expenses. In order to dodge all these unnecessary expenses, you can just install motion sensors in your home. Again, you can connect them to an alarm or lighting system and you come on top either way because they can alert you whenever some unusual movement happens in your home.

There is, however, additional benefits if you connect it to your home’s lighting system. Remember those times when you forgot to turn off the lights and left them running for hours? Well, you can say goodbye to those moments because the lights automatically turn on and off as you enter and leave.

 More Convenience

More Convenience

Convenience may be the smallest benefit that a motion sensor can offer but it can make a world of difference especially if your sensors are part of your lighting system. You won’t ever need to look for switches again and you won’t have to deal with the struggle of turning them on while your hands are full of groceries and other items. Additionally, you won’t have to remind yourself to turn them off as you leave the room because, as mentioned earlier, they do so automatically.

These can all be possible by installing the devices at strategic places in your home. Near the front door is a great example of this as the lights are going to be prompted to turn on as soon as you walk by. You can also install it by your garage door so that it automatically opens and/or closes as you arrive. Hallways are also ideal locations because then they will illuminate the way and allow you to avoid slip and fall accidents and/or deter criminals.

It may not seem like much but you’ll realize just how useful it is once you experience it for yourself. You also have to remember that these sensors can be installed anywhere in your home. If you choose to, you can put one in every room and have all your home lights automated.

 

Key Takeaway

A motion-sensored home is one that is secure, cost-efficient, and convenient. The benefits may be few but they are really all you need and want from this device. At this point, you may be waiting for us to reveal the disadvantages of doing this, but there actually aren’t any. Any disadvantage that motion sensors came with the years prior have all been removed thanks to the advancement of technology. Now, they only come with these benefits and nothing else.

So if and when you’re ready to install motion sensors in and around your home, make sure to consult an electrical company in the Philippines like Meiji Electric. They sell a wide array of worthwhile motion sensors that are going to fit perfectly in your home. Aside from that, they’d also be able to guide you through the process and install the devices for you. While you can resort to DIY installations, nothing beats the work that is done by experts. These people have years of experience and know where your motion sensors should go in order to provide optimal performance!

meiji motion sensor alarm

One of the best ways to protect your house from intruders is by installing a motion sensor in the Philippines. There are plenty of choices in the market, and the most reliable ones are very efficient in keeping possible burglars from forcefully entering your house. But you have to be really careful with your choices. You can’t just walk into a store and buy a motion sensor without considering its capabilities!

If you are practically clueless when it comes to sensors, much less which one would best suit your needs, you might have a hard time. To help you, here is a list of factors that you have to consider before purchasing a motion sensor.

The Type

There are different kinds of motion sensors in the market right now. Before purchasing one, you have to figure out which type of motion sensor would fit your needs best. Generally, there are two types of motion sensors: area motion sensors and local motion sensors.

Area motion sensors are sensors that protect a certain area. Sensors that fall under this category detect changes in a local environment such as movement, vibration, or heat. On the other hand, a local motion sensor’s protection doesn’t cover a whole area. Instead of detecting changes in an environment, it protects specific smaller areas through laser beams, contact sensors, and infrared. When choosing a motion sensor, you have to identify if you want to protect a whole area or if there are certain specific parts of the house you need to guard.

The Features

Different motion sensors have different features. Usually, when change is detected in a protected area, either of the three (or a combination of the three) happens: an alarm, light, or video camera is triggered. Alarms can be triggered a number of ways. Sometimes, you are notified of the possible break-in. There are also motion sensors that – in addition to notifying you of the possible break in – will directly signal an alarm to your security company or the authorities as well.

There are also motion sensors that come with lights. This feature can be used to discourage a possible intruder from entering a protected area. You can use floodlights, for instance, or maybe laser beams in doors and entryways. Another brilliant feature that you should look for in your motion sensor is video surveillance. There are motion sensors in the market that trigger a video recording upon an intruder’s entry. This feature can help you in determining the culprit and might be used for insurance and prosecution purposes.

The Mounting Position

Motion sensors are mounted in different ways. Some sensors are mounted on the wall, others are mounted beside entry points such as doors and windows. There are also motion sensors that can be mounted above switches. This kind of motion sensor lets you control the brightness of the room, in addition to providing home security.

Some motion sensors can be mounted in inconspicuous areas, like the ceiling for instance. This kind of sensor is perfect for monitoring a whole room as opposed to one small area only. Also, sensors like this are much easier to miss since sensors are typically mounted on walls.

 

Motion sensors are very effective in detecting possible break-ins not only in private properties but in public places as well. When purchasing one, remember to take into consideration the factors stated above. This will help you choose which motion detector will suit your needs best.

One might say that Ian Fleming’s legacy, the James Bond series, has been one of the most popular fictional espionage stories, as well as the template for fictional spies in some of today’s media. It’s about British Secret Service agent James Bond, famously known as 007, and his missions to save the world.

The action, suspense, thrill, and the occasional romance are just some of the reasons why James Bond is loved by anyone, regardless of age. With the advancements in technology like motion sensors already available in the Philippines or locked-room escape games, it is no wonder why James Bond is who people channel to finish a game.

But Bond is not the only fictional spy you can watch in action. If you are one of many Bond fans, here is a list of spy films that are perfect you.

the spy who came in from the cold

The Spy Who Came in from the Cold (1965)

The 1960’s was an era where military tension was palpable between powerful nations. It was no surprise that spy films have come to adopt this as an effective plot device. The film The Spy Who Came in from the Cold War is based on a book of the same title written by John le Carré. The protagonist, Alec Leamas, is very much unlike James Bond. He doesn’t have the sophistication Bond seems to exude; instead, his manner is very straightforward. He shows contempt both for his enemies and for his job. Unlike James Bond who relies on gadgets, he makes use of skill and cunning to get out of a situation.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The Quiller Memorandum (1966)

The Quiller Memorandum is based on a spy novel written by Trevor Dudley-Smith called The Berlin Memorandum. It’s also set in the Cold War era where agent Quiller was sent to Berlin to investigate a neo-Nazi organization. This spy, just like Alec Leamas from The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, is not like Bond. He doesn’t like guns, believing that it gives a person a false sense of security. He relies on wit and his knowledge of the martial arts. The film depicts what undercover missions can do to a man.

roniin movie

Ronin (1998)

The story follows the story of ex-special operatives turned mercenaries who were hired to steal a suspiciously heavily guarded package, wanted by the Russians and the IRA. It has every element that you expect in a spy film: loads of dialogue, thrilling car chases, and action-packed scenes. However, one its appeals isn’t in their treatment of the spy film formula, but of the use of practical effects. The car chases were done practically, none of the visual effects that are overused in today’s films.

body of lies

Body of Lies (2008)

The film is based on the novel of the same name written by David Ignatius. The story is set in the Middle East where the CIA and the Jordanian Intelligence were looking to catch a jihadist by the name of Al Saleem. Roger Ferris, a lone ranger type, concocted a plan that involved making up a fictional rival terrorist organization and use it to get to Al Saleem.

farewell

Farewell (2009)

A French espionage film originally titled L’affaire Farewell, literally The Farewell Affair, was adapted from the novel Bonjour Farewell: La vérité sur la taupe française du KGB by Serguei Kostine. It follows the story of a high-ranking KGB officer and a Frenchman who smuggled Soviet Secrets to the United States, hoping to end military tensions between powerful nations. As you may have already guessed from the plot, it’s set in the Cold War. The film was applauded not just because of how it’s written, but also because of its beautiful and striking cinematography.

Recent films that you might want to check out are Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) and The Man from U.N.C.L.E (2015), which shows us that spy shouldn’t always follow the same the formula, that they can deviate to gallows humour that a lot of people are starting to appreciate nowadays.

The films listed above are some of the most recommended spy films that are perfect, not just for the avid Bond film, but also for those wanting a rush of adrenaline.

We have all encountered different types of motion sensors, some of which we don’t really take notice of. For example, remember those automatic doors inside the mall? Well, it turns out it isn’t magic that makes them open and close when you go through it; instead it’s through the use of motion detectors. There are primarily 5 kinds and you’ll want to know about them before you decide to install one either for the security of your home or for other purposes.

1) Continuous Wave Radar Motion Detector (CW)

If you thought that that the only use of microwaves is to heat up your pre-cooked meal, then you’re not getting the most out of modern technology and need to get updated right away, especially if you’re looking into installing any type of motion sensor.

Continuous Wave or CW motion detectors use microwave signals to send out frequencies that bounce on and off an area. For this reason, there are commonly referred to as microwave motion detectors. What a CW motion detector primarily does is to detect any subtle changes within the frequencies that it sends out, this would create a disruption thus possibly triggering off an alarm.

Say for example that an intruder walks through the playing field of a CW motion detector, he will cause a disturbance within the microwaves which in turn will set off the sensor’s alarms. CW motion detectors are more expensive than PIRs, and for good reason as they are much more sensitive and are reliable over longer distances.

 

2) Passive Infrared Motion Detector (PIR)

As a popular choice for many people who install motion sensors,the  Passive Infrared Motion Detector or PIR is the most widely used of this kind of technology to date. Reason number 1 being it is the most affordable, or to be blunt about it, the cheapest motion sensor you can buy when compared to other detectors that utilize different technologies.

A PIR works through the use of an optical collection system in tandem with a couple of other sensing elements. Basically, it measures changes in the energy within it’s surrounding area. The sensor of PIRs recognize thermal infrared images created in combination with a heat sensor which sends off an alarm signal to it’s reciever. The security or control panel handling the unit can then interpret this signal and decide on which the appropriate alarm to trigger is.

The downside of using PIRs is it’s susceptibility to false alarms due to its sensitivity to environmental changes such as sunlight and hot to cold temperature changes. They are also defenseless against any item that blocks body heat emission meaning if someone is wearing a heat insulating full body suit and passes directly within the motion sensor’s vision it will detect nothing and no alarm will be triggered.

3) Ultrasonic Motion Detector

With the technology present in today’s motion detectors, it wouldn’t be surprising to have one type that uses sound energy to do its job. The Ultrasonic Motion Detector or UM does exactly this. By using ultrasonic sound energy which is emitted in waves, it detect movement in a designated area. This energy comes from quartz-crystal transducers. When movement is detected the sound waves are disturbed at the same time, triggering the sensor to ring off the alarm.

UM detectors are most widely used for automated doors. They are very reliable and don’t cause headaches when needed to be installed. There is however, a downside to this type of motion sensor: it is easily blocked and disrupted. It probably would be best not to use this kind for high intensity security measures.

4) Vibration Motion Detector

Also known as Piezoelectric, a Vibration Motion Detector is actually something you can put together at home with common materials. You can do a quick online search and feel like an engineer in a few minutes. Basically, most vibration motion sensors use the piezoelectric effect or in layman terms the ability of objects to create an electric field to detect motion. There are tons of how-to instructional write ups and even videos you can find to create a DIY version vibration motion detector.

It was last Monday, February 25 when AHA GMA-7 staff came for an interview regarding Meiji’s infrared motion sensors.

It was yet another privilege for Meiji to be featured in one of GMA shows-, this time AHA, FOR FREE! 😀

Meiji and GMA

The theme of their show that coming Sunday was lights so they deemed it appropriate to include Infrared Motion Sensors. Unfortunately, they did not air it that Sunday but instead during their HEAT ENERGY episode last Sunday (March 3, 2013).

aha gma7

It was a quick, informative episode on how our our body’s THERMAL energy can be detected by the sensor in Meiji’s Infrared Motion Sensor items. With this, you may either wire it to a light bulb, thus upon your walking towards the scope of the sensor, your light bulb will lit. This may be an LED light, a fluorescent bulb, tube lights, incandescent lights and others.

You may also wire your infrared motion sensor to a buzzer, an exhaust fan or a door. Many business owners, incorporate buzzers in their motion sensors. This is also in connection with a timer. After store hours, when someone comes in to their store, the buzzer alarms. This way, any suspicious visitor will be threatened.

While other  homeowners connect their motion sensors with their exhaust fans particularly in restrooms. Meiji infrared motion sensors have adjustable delays. For example you’d like your exhaust fan to remain on after use, this is perfectly possible! 🙂

It was a funny, cool time with Maey Bautista (Maey B) here in our office that afternoon. She’s a natural comedian, a whacko! 😉 My staff and I truly enjoyed their visit. Thank you!!!

relaxing vacationThe day has come. You have finally saved enough money to go on that vacation you have always dreamt of. But before you go on a shopping spree of things you have to bring with you, make sure to make a list of how to secure the things you will be leaving behind. Nothing kills a vacation worse than an emergency at home. So before you pack those bags, here are some tips on how to care for your home while you go on that much planned getaway.

It would be safer if somebody you trust will be left to look after the house.

But on the instance that nobody can be there, make sure it would not be shouting, “There’s nobody home!” to prevent uninvited guests (e.g. robbers) from ransacking your house. Ask a kind neighbor to pick up mail and newspaper for you during the days you will be away or make arrangements to delay delivery or stop subscription for the mean time. Also, you can install electronic timers that will turn on and turn off your lights. However, you may want to vary the times this happens because somebody could watch your house and notice that pattern, therefore giving away that your house lights are timed. You can also ask a trusted friend or relative to check on your home from time to time just to make sure everything is fine.

Make arrangements for the living things you will be leaving behind.

This pertains to that house pet everybody adores or those plants you have been tending for a year. There are pet shops that offer lodging for pets whose masters have to go away for some reason. If you are going to leave your pet, make sure to give specific instructions about feeding schedule and other concerns to the caretakers. As for plants, there are tutorials available online on how to make drip-watering systems using plastic bottles. Do not drown your plants on the day of your departure hoping that if would be enough until you arrive.

Install a home alarm system.

If you expect yourself to be away from home most of the time, you may consider putting up a home alarm system. With technology available, home alarm systems are very efficient in keeping your home safe using different kind of sensors that you can monitor using your phone. Inform your alarm company about your trip to make sure everything is working!

Prevent power surges.

Secure power lines in your home including your appliances. Most people forget to unplug their appliances and go home wondering why their stuff would not work anymore. Turn off and unplug anything unnecessary while you are away.

Lock and secure all your valuables.

Locking your doors and home protectionwindows are not enough so make sure to secure all valuable items in your home. Lock doors inside the house if you want to be extra secure. Keep all valuables in a place where they would not be easily found. Moreover, do not leave your key under the mat. You can leave it with the person you have asked to check on your house.

Lastly, avoid posting your whereabouts on social media.

Especially if people know you leave alone in your house. This is one way to announce to the world that you are not home. You can always post your beautiful beach photos and talk about your trip when you get back home, safe and sound.

Nowadays, safety is not just something we want, but definitely something we need. In this world there are many kinds of danger. It is very unfortunate that there are a lot of bad seeds out there, and we cannot control them. What’s worse is that we cannot even tell who has an agenda and who is innocent.

Our families, our pets, our belongings, these are the things we want to be secured about. But it would not be good for us if we choose to stay home all day, everyday. Of course, we have our jobs, school works or business to attend to. We cannot always keep an eye on our homes, where all our possessions are supposedly kept safe. All the more, we cannot stay up throughout the night to make sure no burglars enter our homes.

 It is a good thing that Meiji Electric Philippines released their very own Infrared Motion Sensor. It is like having a security guard and a guard dogs both on duty. This sensor has 3 types:

infrared motion sensors

Wall-Mount

As indicated in its type, this sensor is placed on a wall in a certain room, or in your dark hallways. It comes with 3 options you can choose to have the sensor work: On, Off and Auto. Very simply, it works as how you think it does. Turning it On means the light will be turned on with or without the presence of light less than 20 Luminance. When it’s off, of course it is turned off. And lastly, the Auto option will make the sensor light up on less than 20 Luminance and if there is motion detected.

Ceiling Type

This type of sensor is best placed in covered rooms, doorways or garage. It can reach to about 6 meters and in a 360 degree angle. This works during day and night and has a light detection of 3-2000 Luminance, but it still depends on how you want it.

Fixture Sensor Type

Now, this type is something you can place in any part or object in your home. It can even go into your lamp. This basically offers protection, as it also works during daytime and night, and has a 100 by 360 degrees detection angle. It has a distance of 6 meters, like the ceiling type.

It is good to know that anywhere you are at anytime, your family and your belongings at home (or even at work) are safe and sound. Forget the hassle and too much energy you consume and making sure your home is at peace by having a Meiji Infrared Motion Sensor!

Meiji Infrared Motion Sensors

To compliment Meiji’s line of wiring devices, they came up with their own line of Infrared type Motion Sensors.

As we know different people have varied reasons and uses on why they have motion sensors. To name a few: convenience, energy-saving, efficiency, etc. Now to meet these needs, Meiji brings to you its 3 types of Meiji Infrared Motion Sensors!

the infrared motions sensors

Wall Mounted Type

As the photo shows, this type of motion sensor is perfect for the dark hallways of your home or office. It will light up once its ambient light range reaches less than 20 Luminance.

There are 3 options namely On, Off and Auto: On makes it work as a switch allowing it to turn on automatically once there <20LUX is detected, with or without motion detected; Off on the other hand, does not turn on even at <20LUX; while Auto will turn on once light is less than 20 LUX and there is motion detected.

This type of motion sensor has a detection range of 180 degrees with a maximum of 9 meters detection distance!

Ceiling Type

This type of motion sensor is fit for rooms, doorways and the like. This type has an ambient light detection of 3-2000LUX, depending upon how you want it. So the ceiling type unlike the wall, works both during the day and even at night.

If you have a room or even place where much of your guests go to and most of the time, people forget to turn off the switch upon leaving: a motion sensor just might be an answer to your problems!

Meiji’s Ceiling Type Motion Sensor has a detection distance of up to 6 meters with a 360 degree detection angle.

Fixture Sensor Type

Now the third type of Meiji motion sensor is for protection purposes. This type is hidden inside your louvers or fixture lamps therefore, it is most suited in places where you want to scare off unwanted guests: gate lights, doorways. hall ways and the like.

This type has a detection range of 100 degrees by 360 degrees having a full scope of an area, and a maximum sense distance of up to 6 meters. It also has an ambient light detection of less than 10 LUX to daylight, making it workable during the day and night.

Save yourself the hassle of getting out of bed because you failed to turn-on or off a switch! Grab the convenience Meiji motion sensors can offer!
