In groups, Mijia Smart Human Body Movement Sensor will be used. To control lighting environments and much more. Besides, notifications are setup alert using the Mi Home app.
What is a sensor?
A sensor as the name indicates it senses any changes in its surrounding environment and sends it to other electronic devices. It is always used with other electronic devices. In touch-sensitive elevator buttons, lamps that manage their brightness by touching base sensors are used. For manufacturing robots, aeroplanes, cars and many others in our day to day life. So many types of sensors used in different categories. They are Gas sensors, Biosensors, Image sensors, Position sensors, speed sensors and so on.
The first motion sensor was invented in 1950. It is a device that notices moving objects and people. The main principle of a motion sensor is to sense and send the information to the control panel. Motion sensor reacts to different situations like doors and windows being un-bolt.
These sensors activate the doorbell when we come nearer to the front door. The sensor conserves energy by using its light in dark areas. There are different types of motion sensors namely Ultrasonic sensor, Microwave, PIR sensor and Tomographic sensor. Any two types of sensor combinations are also used for many purposes.
This sensor does not emit any energy so it is PIR type sensor. This is the difference between a PIR sensor and an electrical eye. PIR means Passive Infra-Red Sensor. It is sensitive to skin temperature. The sensor detects the objects or animals by picking up one’s Infra-Red radiation.
It emits Ultrasonic waves and receives reflections from nearby objects. The ultrasonic wavelength of around a centimetre is similar to the wavelengths used in microwave motion detectors.
The Microwave sensor is also known as Radar or Doppler sensors. They detect walking, crawling and running outdoor. This type of sensor generates an electromagnetic radiation field or RF field between transmitter and receiver. It creates an Invisible Volumetric detection zone.
Tomographic Motion Sensor:
This type of motion sensor senses the disturbances to radio waves when they pass from node network to mesh network. These also sense through walls. Other wireless-capable devices can act as nodes on the mesh after receiving a software update.
What is Aqara?
“Aq” means “Smart”, “ara” means “Home”. The name “Aqara” means “Smart Home”. It provides smart home products to customers. The products with specifications like easy to use, affordable and beautifully designed. Aqara products support all types of platforms.
