I also thought about using webcams, but since a computer won't be permanent available in the setup that won't be a solution.
I am going to work on a project, which requires reliable movement detection.It needs to work for approx. 1 year, with multiple movement detectors a day.
The sensors will be placed at 3 different locations at a spiral staircase, and should be activated when people are present in it's area.
What happens when the motion or presence detector is activated?What makes you think that running for a year might be a problem?Is it motion or presence you are trying to detect?If it's motion, what kind of motion?
And will the sensor know that there is someone near, if it is not active? I think you have that concept backwards. The sensor is always active, monitoring for motion/heat/whatever. It outputs a different value if there is something present than when there is not.
