This highly accurate sensor allows you to detect customers walking between the reflector and sensor so you can precisely trigger a prop.

Powered using 12-24V DC so you can hookup to one of our controllers and be ready almost instantly. These sensors require zero warm-up time unlike a PIR.

This type of sensor could experience issues in heavy fog environments.

These can also be avoided relatively easy (depending on placement) by actors to avoid giving away a scare.

Yes! This can be used to trigger all of our Prop Controllers. As well as any Light Controllers that have a trigger input.
Can this be used outdoors?
This devices is IP64 rated, so it should be safe in most conditions outside. It should not be submerged underwater, or used in below-freezing temperatures.

We recommend building a little cover for it just to be safe.
What is the detection distance on this?
This sensor is capable of being used with the reflector up-to 13ft away. However, this distance will vary depending on the environment.
What does IP64 mean?
IP64 is a rating designed to measure how well an enclosure is protected from liquids and solid objects.

The 6 means it is "dust tight," 6 is the highest solid rating.
The 4 means it is protected from "water splashing against the enclosure from any direction"
