Replacement Batteries for Wireless Motion Sensors
Keep Your DIY Home Security Systems Powered Up
The latest trend in home security is for homeowners and businesses to set up their own systems using motion detectors, sensors, and cameras, and monitor those devices using a phone-based app or a central control station. Setting up these home security systems is easy, cost-efficient, and are effective at keeping your property monitored and protected. An important point that many homeowners and businesses may overlook during the initial installation is that many of these wireless devices require batteries. While replacing the batteries is an effortless task, determining ahead of time what size and quantity you'll need are difficult and often forgotten. Here at BatteryJunction, we've taken the guesswork out of powering your security systems by compiling this list of motion detector batteries. We've taken the time to review the most popular brands and models currently out on the market and have put together a list of replacement batteries that are reliable enough to power the system on which you rely to keep your property safe.
What Are Motion Detectors?
For starters, it is important to clarify what we are considering motion sensors when reviewing the various accessories that are available for your DIY home security system. During our analysis, we considered any independent tool used to capture movement within the property as a motion detector. This includes two-piece door monitors, window sensors, hallway detectors, and glass sensors. The majority of these accessories are utilized as individual, add-on components to your security system and can be added to the setup over time. For example, the initial setup up may include just door sensors for the front and the back of the house; however, over time you may feel it is necessary to add window sensors to those on the first floor of your house. Regardless, all of these devices offer some type of notification system that tells a user when motion is detected. Whether it is a chime of a bell, the illumination of a light or even a text on your cell phone, all of these wireless motion detectors are used as the front line of defense for keeping intruders out of your property. For this reason alone, it is important to keep them fully powered and working at all times.
