Blacktail - Would you happen to have the product Number or model #? I'm on the web-site but can't find the PIR. Of course I have them in my cams but....they're occupied.

***FOUND IT***
70041-223-HD3100D is the model of the PIR

You got it gizz.  How do you like this sensor.  I bought two I am trying them for the first time.

guess this means another trip to Lowe's...hehehe

Blacktail,
i have been using this sensor for most all of my cams now and really like it .
they are already rigged for the small 9 volt batteries and have a bit more range than the rs 49-425
easily modified but i find it best to use a timer

Hey Gundocc,

I sent you and email last week on this sensor.  Did you get it?  Do you use the timer from Ramsey or did you build your own?  Thanks

Howdy Blacktail,

i was out on a hunting trip fer a few days last week and just have seen your mail....hehehe
a reply is in the works

i build my own version of a timer that has a 4 second delay that works for me
the timer i use is a modification of the Welby/Tinhorn timer found here on the site

Later,

blacktail - i like the pir as well. I used to use the MS20 but wanted to try a PIR that was already rigged for 9V. I bought one under the GE name thinking it may be a new PIR but it turned out to be an exact copycat of the Lamson. Like Gun Docc said, it work well. I just ordered 4 of them - Just in case. You can buy them online then pick them up at the store without paying any shipping. Neat idea.

Gun Docc - Was curious as to how long you get out of a 9V batt with this pir. By calculations it should last about a 9 months of "ON" time by itself. Of course with a timer it won't be as long.

Hey Gizz
I was in Wal-Mart the other day and saw a GE PIR and it looked identical to the Lamson but I did not buy it because I thought it was different.  They were fairly cheap also.  Do you know the model#.  Thanks

Gizz,
as to how long the batteries last ?
well i have one cam that i built back in march that is still working just fine but it has been used quite a bit from time to time but not continuous.

i place 3 batteries in mine to keep the voltage a little longer with the timer's and it seems to work out great.

Gun Docc - Thanks, i figured you was getting a long time out of the batts. The pir itself draws only .06ma at idle - compare that to the MS20 at 1.6ma. WOW!
Suppose with 3 of them wired together you'll get a long time regardless of the timer.

Blacktail - I have no model number but the packaging and parts look EXACTLY like the Lamson,Dimango PIR. I could only find the GE in White. You get a sensor and one socket.

It's so energy efficient it would work well with JoeD's timer if the battery voltage was more compatable.  I wonder (& bet) that the Lampson actually runs on 5volts,  anybody look for a voltage regulator inside there?  If it does run off 5v, could tap into it and run JoeD's timer.
