SG880MK-8M Appendix I: PIR Detection Zone Appendix I: PIR Detection Zone Figure 7 shows the detection range in different detection angle. When the detection angle is 35°, the detection range is 50ft (15m). When the detection angle is 52°, the detection range is 30ft (9m). Figure 7 PIR Detection Zone The PIR detection angle (α) is just barely larger than the field of view angle (β). The advantage of this design is to avoid empty pictures and get more available pictures.
