About this product

The TriggerScout PIR Kit is a compact passive infrared sensor device that can be used to capture images by detecting movement and heat. The sensor has a range of up to 20m, depending on the ambient conditions, and a cone of sensitivity of 10° or 6° when used with the provided baffle. When a warm moving body moves into this detection zone the PIR will activate and trigger a camera or the TriggerSmart system. The TriggerScout PIR sensor can be connected directly to a camera using the appropriate cable, a 3.5mm to 2.5mm jack cable is supplied (see below for camera compatibility). The sensor can also be connected to the MCT-1 control unit (not included) which allows the user to control the sensitivity of the sensors and delay the trigger of the connected camera.

The PIR sensor has a standard 1/4" fitting for mounting, and the kit includes a stakepod, which can be deployed in soft ground.
