When it comes to your home security system, its essential element is a motion detector. Without these sensors, it would not be possible to detect an intruder, enable an alarm or activate the camera. In general, movement can be traced in various ways, including infrared (being the most widely used), sound and vibration. Today, the dual technology sensors with combined features are becoming more popular as they help reduce false alarms. Many people would like to benefit from a level of smartness in their house but do not have any technical background to install the detectors themselves. In that case, it is advisable to call professionals to do all the work safely and correctly. Our technicians at HandyKith are skilled in motion detector/sensor installation and ready to make your home smarter.

What We Do?
There is a number of ways in which motion detectors can be applied. We work mostly in non-industrial fields and can handle detectors that are used for:
- Intruder alarms;
- Automatic water faucets and toilets;
- Automatic hand-dryers;
- Automatic doors;
- Interactive projector (floor or wall).
The experts at HandlyKith can set up your home security system and make sure the motion detectors are working as intended. Other popular services that we provide are motion detector light switch installation, motion sensor faucet installation and motion sensor interactive installation. Do not hesitate to contact us if you need your sensors for something else as we would probably be able to handle those too.
How We Do It
We’ll spare you from all the technicalities involved in motion sensor installation. But for those who are curious here are a few things we keep in mind when it comes to home security:
- We place detectors at areas where an intruder would have to walk through: e.g. front or back door outside and hallway or staircase inside.
- We keep in mind that many outdoor detectors are capable of detection up to 50-80 feet (15-20 meters); we adjust the distance range accordingly to minimize false alarms.
- We know that detectors work best when a person walk parallel to them, not towards them; therefore we would not place a sensor at the end of a narrow pathway but on one of its walls on the left or right.
Even though no detector is completely error-free, our professionals will install and configure your sensors as carefully and precisely as possible. Contact us now and get a free quote for the motion sensor install at your home.
