DSC PG9994 Product Description:

The DSC PG9994 is a wireless PowerG outdoor digital mirror motion detector that is designed for PowerG compatible security systems. The PG9926 outdoor motion detector has pet immunity and can distinguish between human beings and pets weighting up to 18 kg (40 lb). The revolutionaly Ocat-Quad™ technology, which uses eight PIR sensors, each acting as a Quad detector, enables the PG9994 to accurately and reliably determine whether an alarm is justified.

The PG9994 features several innovative technologies to overcome demanding outdoor challenges such as rain, direct sunlight, animals, changes of light levels and more. It uses a combination of elliptical parabolic mirror optics. An innovative mirror with extremely high optical gain delivers an extended range and provides superior detection sensitivity. The PG9994 also applies an advanced motion analysis. A central motion processor analyzes the motion signals detected in each of the individual detectors, taking into account the time, amplitude, background temperature, speed of motion, size of target, and the direction of motion. Then, it compares the signals in relation to adjacent detectors and calculates whether a real alarm is justified based on true motion detected consecutively by the array of individual detectors. Finally, the PG9994 uses an obsidian black mirror technology. A unique, nickel-based, obsidian-like, reflective surface acts as a selective optical filter of infrared energy. In this way, the PG9994 can virtually eliminate white light interference and increase detection sensitivity.

The PG9994 is equipped with a visible link quality LED indicator that lets the installer choose the optimal location for installation, eliminating the effort of going back and forth to the keypad. Additionally, device configuration is quick and easy with no hardware switches or need to re-open the device. All device configuration settings are handled via the system keypad. Install the PG9994 in a position where expected intruder motion is perpendicular to the zones of detection. Do not obscure the detector field of view with large objects. Alarms triggered by conditions such as weather, blowing leaves and brush, or related environmental conditions need to be considered when accessing the installation and application.

Pairs quickly and easily. I have three of these and they work great to trigger lights, very fast response. This is a standard feature in older devices.
