Motion sensor technology has come a long way in recent years thanks to the internet and wireless technology. Yet despite the advancements in motion sensor technology, most homes are not equipped nor educated on just how easy it is to set up.
If you own a computer with a built in camera, you already have access to motion sensor technology. In fact, you can set up and test it right now.
Of course, one problem with motion sensor technology is the number of false alerts you get. Something as simple as a change in light can trigger a motion detected event.
To solve this, we have created motion sensor technology that guarantees no false alerts.
Introducing Cammy Home Alarm
Cammy Home Alarm leverages the wireless motion sensor technology in IP cameras allowing you to position cameras at home to capture motion activated events. We then we filter out false events and only alert you to events with people in them.
We can make this promise to our customers because we use a team of professional monitors to ensure that motion is not created by pets or surrounding foliage, but by an intruder.

Our camera review page contains extensive reviews of the most popular cameras on the market, and exactly what they are capable of, but how do you install the camera and how do you make the most of its motion detection capability?
Here are a few tips:
Avoid Direct Sunlight
Pointing your camera at direct sunlight will not only impact your visibility but also capture a lot of light changing events. A good idea is to place your camera a few feet away from windows to limit the number of motion events.
Avoid Vents and Radiators
If you have an infrared (night-vision) camera then a sharp increase or decrease in temperature may be enough to set off your motion detectors. Try leaving at least 10 to 15 feet between your camera and any radiators or air vents.
Use Choke Points
Security experts recommend installing cameras at “choke points” in your home. These “choke points” are places that intruders would have to walk through if they gained accessed to your home, like your entrance hall or stairs.
Remember also that most trespassers gain access through doors: garage doors, patio doors and front and back doors. Make sure these entrances are covered but bear in mind that the average motion sensor can pick up a range of between 50 and 80 feet.
Setting up motion sensor technology has never been easier or more affordable.
In this post we learned how you can test out motion sensor technology right now, how our own technology overcomes the biggest challenge with video motion sensors and some ways to get the most out of motion sensor cameras.
