Hikvision wireless PIR AM curtain detector for outdoors
This Hikvision wireless PIR curtain detector can be mounted on the inside or the outside of the house. It can be mounted vertically on a wall, but it can also be mounted horizontally on the ceiling.
The PIR curtain detector has the model number DS-PDC10AM-EG2-WE and is a fully secured wireless bi-directional 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 up to 12KG when wall-mounted, while recognising humans from the first step.
Detection range of DS-PDC10AM-EG2-WE
The Hikvision PIR curtain detector can be mounted on a wall to protect 1 or 2 windows or a door and 1 window. If you mount the detector on the ceiling, then this detector 5 meters in all directions, also at an angle of 5 degrees.
The sensitivity is adjustable via the Hik-Connect application on your smartphone. There are 2 modes in total, automatic and animal friendly. The latter should be selected if cats or dogs are present in the area to be protected, or if the detector is mounted outside in an area where cats also regularly roam.
Range from Hikvision Hub
The range from the Hub to the Hikvision PIR curtain detector DS-PDC10AM-EG2-WE is 1,600 metres 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 for mounting the PIR curtain detector is between 2 and 3.50 metres. If you mount the PIR curtain detector lower than the recommended height, it will react earlier to pets and also reduce the detection distance. Of course, all installation materials are included.
Logging in and mounting
All Hikvision products are easy to connect. Registration is done with a QR code on each device. Do you have multiple detectors that you want to register at the same time? Then use the convenient “enroll” function so you don’t have to scan any QR code. Activate “Enroll”, turn on the detector, and the pairing is a fact.
Mount the detector on a wall or ceiling and make sure there are no vases, cabinets or glass objects blocking the viewing angle.
Like all Hikvision AX Pro products, the detector 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 PIR curtain detector DS-PDC10AM-EG2-WE.
The PIR curtain detector is active in temperatures between -10 and +55 degrees Celsius. Outside these values, the detection quality may decrease. The dimensions are 29,2mm x 134,4mm x 39,5mm and the weight is 118,5 grams.
