Imagine leaving your home or apartment unattended and leaving for a vacation.
Amazing, right? Maybe leave the light on, maybe let the TV run, and do not let it turn off on its own to give the illusion that you are at home the entire time.
Maybe that will give you some level of peace of mind while you are out there strolling and traveling to different countries.
However, what if that was not enough?
When you are not at home, you are never quite sure what is happening, and even if you add a camera, each camera has its blind spots.
These blind spots are spots that the camera does not cover with its field of vision.
Another step you can take to avoid potential theft or burglars within your home is through a motion sensor.
The UbiBot MS1/MS1P
The UbiBot MS1/MS1P is a sensitive motion perception device.
UbiBot as a company strives to bring monitoring and alerts to the users of all of their devices, and as such have developed a device that senses motion.
In the search for perfection, the Motion Sensor MS1/MS1P supports WiFi and RJ45 Ethernet cable connection, ensuring that the connection drops are almost non-existent, or better put, if your Internet Service Provider is stable, so will the motion sensor.
When you install it in a place with a wide field of view, the motion sensor can accurately sense any slight movement made by either people or animals.
When someone moves, a movement log is generated, and this log is recorded on the IoT cloud platform of UbiBot that allows you to download it anytime and anywhere.
The UbiBot MS1/MS1P Can:
- Monitor even the slightest movements of humans or animals.
- Connect to the Internet of Things cloud platforms where it can store the data logs.
- Export data remotely anytime, anywhere.
The Data Transmission
A Power over Ethernet connection also known as a POE network ensures easy deployment, stability, and real-time updates. Additional POE splitter is needed for the device.
The device supports 220V power supply or USB and has multiple ways of communicating, which can reduce the requirements of wiring.
It offers multiple alert modes that are widely used within the security field as a whole such as platform-based alert rules, real-time alerts, a wide variety of alarm modes and options, device online and offline notifications.
When it comes to the specifications of the UbiBot MS1/MS1P, its dimensions are 80x80x48mm, it features a detection distance of up to 12 meters, it has a detection angle of vertical 40 degrees and horizontal 105 degrees while requiring a power supply in the form of a Micro USB, POE power supply or AC power supply.
The operating temperature is from 0℃ to 50℃ and it can connect through a 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi or RJ45 Ethernet connection.
It supports all devices running Android 8.1 or above and all iOS devices running iOS 11 or above.
When it comes to the installation process, it can be placed directly in the required monitoring area or it can be glued on the smooth wall surface with double-sided adhesive.
You can also hang it on the wall with screws if that is more convenient for you.
The surface of the product is in a matte warm white color and it can blend easily with the surrounding environment as it is not intended to stand out but blend in.
Once the device senses motion, it generates a log.
Later on, that generated log is transferred through a WiFi 2.4 GHz connection or through an RJ45 Ethernet Cable to the UbiBot IoT platform, after which that data is transferred to the UbiBot application which you can easily access through a variety of different devices such as a phone or tablet through the official application or through a desktop computer or laptop through a web browser, making it extremely convenient.
The role of a motion sensor in a home security system is to sense an intruder and send an alert to you as soon as possible.
Sensors work when you are not at home, or when you tell the system you are not there.
The best placement of a motion sensor is in a corner of a room that has a good viewpoint of your entryways and can easily detect any changes in the room.
A motion sensor can be used both at home and at any business, and they can be found on phones, paper towel dispensers, game consoles, and virtual reality systems, so chances are you have probably experienced a motion sensor somewhere so far and are aware of how exactly they work.
Motion sensors are like flashlights which send out a beam of light, but with motion-detecting infrared energy waves instead of light waves.
When you get closer to the device, the infrared radiation becomes denser the nearer to the device you go and it spreads out the further of the device you get.
By adding a motion-sensing device to your home, you are increasing the level of security at an unexpected level to any potential intruder.
As many potential intruders expect a camera, they usually seek it out and look for spots that the camera does not see, so by strategically placing the motion sensor in places where the camera does not see, you are covering those spots with an added layer of protection and catching the burglars off-guard.
Once the motion detection tool detects someone, it can trigger a chain of events.
This can specifically happen when it is integrated with IFTTT.
This includes features such as a sound, music, lights and so on to freak out the intruders or burglars and makes them run away while stealing nothing in the process, while also alerting you from a distance so you can stop your daily or nightly commute and rush back to your home to check if everything is okay.
Alternatively, you can also call the police for a little bit of backup if things turn sour quickly, but at the end of the day, you will have peace of mind knowing that you are protected.
