Product Description

When motion is detected the PIR Sensor outputs a high signal on its output pin. This logic signal can be read by a microcontroller or used to drive an external load.

Features
  • Jumper selects short or long settings
  • Directly drive a load
  • Onboard LEDs light up the lens for fast visual feedback when movement is detected
  • Mounting holes for 2-56 sized screws
  • 3-pin SIP header ready for breadboard or through-hole projects
  • Small size makes it easy to conceal
  • Easy interface to any microcontroller
Applications:
  • Motion-activated nightlight
  • Alarm systems
  • Holiday animated props
