The EMX OWL is a vehicle motion sensor and presence sensor that uses infrared and microwave technology to act as an activation sensor for garage doors, gates, and barriers. The OWL distinguishes between vehicle detection, pedestrians, cross traffic, and has a highly customizable infrared presence detection zone so it can be used as both access control and a security system in a variety of vehicle and pedestrian detection applications. The microwave motion sensor’s, for automotive motion detection, maximum detection area is 23-feet by 19 feet wide at a mounting height of 21-feet. The OWL can prevent unnecessary door openings to save energy costs by using traffic filters to prevent detection of departing vehicles, and vehicles moving parallel to the door. The infrared presence sensor, for detecting pedestrians, has a maximum detection area of 18-feet long by 26-feet wide at a mounting height of 21-feet. Utilizing a pair of highly customizable infrared LED arrays, the OWL’s presence detection can keep people and vehicles safe from unintentional door closings. The OWL-RC Remote Control is required for programming the EMX OWL and for customizing it’s detection zones.
