Flexible mounting heightTwo independent left / right detection areasDetection analysis and pet tolerance
The WXS outdoor intrusion sensors can be installed at a low mount providing a flexible detection area from 2.5 to 12m. It can also be mounted at 2.0m high, creating a volumetric detection area with 9m detection range. This option can be effective to avoid vandalism or masking of lens.In low mount configuration, the WXS intrusion detection sensors feature two completely independent 90 degrees detection areas (left and right), that can be set at different detection distance, sensitivity and trigger independent alarm outputs which is very useful for PTZ activation.The WX Shield outdoor intruder sensors are designed to be pet and animal tolerant which means it will not trigger if cats, dogs, birds are in the detection area making it very stable. Additionally they feature OPTEX Super Multi-dimensional Analyis (SMDA) which can rule out environemental changes such as vegetaion sway, shadow etc making the sensor very reliable.
