Tech Tip-Motion Sensors

The Hawkeye Security and Electronic company standard for motion sensor installation is a height of 7.5’ and LED turned off. On dual-techs, we turn the microwave sensitivity way down, and bring it up just enough to provide proper coverage.

These tech tips are intended to provide insights to small nuances to help with many different products we offer. It is the small attention to detail that separates an outstanding job from an OK one. Although these apply primarily to technicians, they will help others gain insight to what the technicians do – in small doses.
