working SENSOR – IR Infrared Motion Detection Sensor Module (DC 5V~20V) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Small Size, detects motion from 5+ feet which i tested, trimpots given for changing the sensitivity.
Cons:
The Plastic Lens case is very lightly attached. No datasheet provided in specifications Capacitors should have been SMD
Other:
the Packaging should have been BETTER, as this can be easily damaged in transit. The Lens is NOT actual FRESNEL I think... there are simply Polygons inside, not sure if this is better or not than a FRESNEL Lens
Bottomline:
For the price, this is GOOD ENOUGH, works with Arduino... See the PIRSense Sketch http://playground.arduino.cc/Code/PIRsense
