I haven't lurked around here for a while, but I now have a question that I think this group can help me with, so without further delay...
Any suggestions for a motion detector that is a) Inexpensive, b) Operates on 24 Volts DC c) Is silent/very quiet?
This would be used for detecting activity in a room (and due to the geometry of the room, I'll be using at least 3, which is why "the cheaper the better" is becomming my mantre here). I don't need pet imunity, I don't need tamper contacts, I don't need a walk test LED.
Straight PIR is fine by me, and I don't need microwave. Contacts can be normally open or normally closed.
If there isn't such a thing as a "Cheap, quiet 24 volt motion detector" I could make a "Cheap quiet 12 volt motion detector" work, but that would mean adding additional power supplies which I'd like to avoid. Large emphasis on QUIET. I used a old(er) FBII PIR for my proof-of-concept and -- this may sound wacky, but -- the sound of the relay clicking on and off drove me batty.
Bonus points if it can be purchased at retail in the Cleveland, Ohio area.
