Arduino and hc-sr505 Mini PIR Motion Sensor

The HC-SR505 Mini PIR Motion Sensor is based on infrared technology and it can automatic control by itself with high sensitivity and high reliability. Because of the minimum size and low-power operation mode, it widely used in various of automatic electronic equipment, especially battery-powered automatic products.

It works similar to the larger hc-sr501 which is commonly used in many projects

HC-SR505 Mini PIR Motion Sensor

Technical parameters:
1. Operating Voltage Range: DC4.5-20V
2. Static current: <60uA
3. Output level: High 3.3V / Low 0V
4. Trigger: repeatable trigger (default)
5. Delay time: 8S + -30%
6. PCB Dimensions: 10 * 23mm
7. Induction angle: <100 degree cone angle
8. Induction distance: 3 meters
9. Working temperature: -20 – +80 degrees
10. Sensor Lens Dimensions: Diameter: 10mm (default)

Very simple to use, the code below shows a simple sketch. As you can see it simply a case of reading the output and if it goes high then the PIR has detected something

Code

void setup()  
{
  Serial.begin(9600);
  pinMode(4,INPUT);
  digitalWrite(4,LOW);
}
void loop()  
{
    if(digitalRead(4)==HIGH)  
    {
      Serial.println("Movement detected.");
    }
    else  
    {
      Serial.println("Nothing.");
    }
    delay(1000);
}

Here is the output you would expect to see in the serial monitor.

 

Output

Nothing.
Nothing.
Nothing.
Nothing.
Movement detected.
Movement detected.
Movement detected.
Movement detected.
