The DS160/161 is a passive-infrared (PIR) detector designed for Request to Exit (REX) interior applications. The technology designed into the DS160/161 is based on the principal that all objects emit infrared energy. The warmer an object is, the more infrared energy emitted. Its PIR technology allows the DS160/161 to detect the change in infrared energy that occurs when a person passes through its field of view.
The DS160 is default safety device shipped with all our wired automation systems. It offers excellent range and performance when properly configured. For a given installation, the DS160 is wired according to which controller is attached to the automation system.
