In the Maker Shed: PIR sensor module

The PIR Sensor in the Maker Shed can detect motion from up to 20 feet away by using a Fresnel lens and an infrared-sensitive element. It’s inexpensive and really easy to use. It’s ideal for alarm systems, motion-activated lighting, holiday props, and robotics. Check out the link for more details.


  • Simple 3-pin connection
  • Single bit output
