Hikvision PIR ceiling detector
Hikvision internal ceiling PIR detector is intended for indoor mounting in locations such as living room, kitchen, hallway, bedroom or for use in office buildings. This ceiling detector is ideal for rooms that are not square or rectangular in shape, but also very suitable for large rooms by its huge detection area.
The PIR ceiling detector has the model number DS-PDCL12-EG2-WE and is a fully secured wireless two-way detector with motion detection, tamper protection, low battery check and connection control. It can operate for up to 5 years from a built-in battery. It ignores animals while recognising humans from the first step.
Detection range of the DS-PDCL12-EG2-WE
The Hikvision internal PIR ceiling detector can monitor an area of 12 metres from the sensor for motion in a 360-degree field. If you place the detector in the middle of a room, the room can be 24 by 24 metres. The detector can look at each side for 12 metres. The sensor divides the area into 172 zones and sounds an alarm if one or more zones detect movement. This sensitivity is adjustable via the Hik-Connect application on your smartphone. There are three modes, high sensitivity, normal and animal friendly. The latter should be selected if cats or dogs are present in the area to be protected. Pets up to 30KG are not detected in this mode.
Range from the Hikvision Hub
The range from the Hub to the ceiling detector DS-PDCL12-EG2-WE is 1,600 meters in open field. The connection is continuously monitored by the Hikvision Cloud. If the wireless signal is intentionally disrupted, this will be reported immediately via the Hik-Connect app on your smartphone. The Hikvision wireless signal is called Tri-X, and operates on 2 different frequencies in the 868mhz band and has AES-128 encryption.
The ideal height to mount the PIR ceiling detector is between 2.4 and 4.0 metres. So you are very flexible in mounting this detector. It is therefore also ideally suited for homes with very high ceilings. Mounting the ceiling detector is easy to do yourself. Of course, all installation necessities are included.
Connecting and mounting
All Hikvision products are easy to connect. Registration is done with a QR code on each device. It is even easier if you activate the “Enroll” function in the Hub settings of the Hik-connect app. The only thing you have to do to connect a detector is turn it on, and the connection between Hub and detector is ready. It doesn’t get any simpler than this.
The ceiling detector, like all Hikvision AX Pro products, runs on CR123A batteries and is therefore completely wireless. They are therefore easy to place anywhere without having to lay cables. The lifetime of the standard batteries is 5 years with normal use. After this time, they can easily be replaced by new ones for a few euros. These batteries are always available from stock. How to replace the batteries can be found in the manual of the internal PIR ceiling detector DS-PDCL12-EG2-WE.
