Intelligent AND detection logic

Catch performance

The HX Series features superb Catch Performance. The most important element in reliable outdoor detector is accuracy to distinguish a human from a pet. The exclusive pyro element on board enables the HX to project an ideal detection pattern, thus allowing for more accurate detection of humans and less false alarms.

Active IR digital anti-masking

When an object is placed close to the lens surface, for a period of more than 180 seconds, the IR Anti-Masking circuit will activate and generate a trouble signal.

Slope friendliness

Not all outdoor ground is flat like most indoor environments. Steep slopes can cause negative effects on the catch performance feature. The adjustable included bracket enables the HX to maintain the optimal catch performance.


Outdoor environments are full of false alarm factors like vegetation and reflective surfaces. Pre-survey before installing enables you to find the ways to minimize possible false alarms.
The HX detection pattern can easily be adjusted to avoid these possible false alarms by using the included masking strips.

Battery box for numerous battery types

Double conductive shielding

By using our double conductive shielding, the visible light disturbance and RFI can be blocked.
