Topic: With this Bosch DS160 PIR Sensor work with an Ardunio? (Read 544 times) previous topic - next topic

I am researching PIR sensors for an upcoming project and was wondering if anyone had any insight if this sensor will work with an Ardunio?

Yes, they will work.
But the sensor needs 12V to 30V as power supply.
The output is probably a relay output, so you can use the Arduino digital input for that.

It seems a bit odd to me to use that sensor.
The sensor contains the PIR sensor and a microcontroller.
The Arduino would be a second microcontroller, so why not use a good quality PIR sensor with the Arduino.
