Position it to “keep watch” on a bird feeder and leave the birds to take their own photographs for you
Position it next to a route known to be used by an animal, the animal will trigger your camera when it passes the sensor
Note, this sensor is not waterproof.
Detection range of the sensor is typically 2-3 metres with a 120° conical pattern, a collar is supplied which may be fixed over the fresnel lens to act as a collimator, this reduces the sensors beamwidth and provides a more directional response.
A self-adhesive pad is also supplied, this may be fixed to the enclosure to allow the unit to be secured to a post or branch using the cable ties supplied.
