2 Quick Smart Home Automation Tips Relating to Motion Sensors
THE WOODLANDS, TX -- Tip #1. If you’re worried that someone might be sneaking around your home or business, you can set up a sensor at your door, in your yard, or pretty much anywhere. You can then tell your automation system to turn on those sensors at any time of day. During the hours the sensors are activated, you can set alerts to be sent to your phone every time motion is detected.
You can set a doorbell camera to do this, of course, but you can also just have a standalone sensor if that’s applicable in your situation..
Tip #2: Using standalone motion sensors can also be great for doing things like turning on lights when they are triggered by . For example if you want to turn on the lights in a pantry when you open the door, or turn on the lights in a hallway if your kids wake up in the middle of the night, you can place a motion sensor in the hallway, or right outside a bedroom, which can trigger the light to turn on, and then set a timer to turn it off after a set amount of time, unless/until motion is detected again.
