Does it matter which direction I mount the RS PIR?

Just wonder because the sensor for the PIR may be off to the right slightly from the actual lens of the camera.  Or am I just being too anal about it?

Thanks

Doesn't matter Chris.  I place mine upside down so the fresnal lense lines up with the camera lense.

I ran my sensor vertically instead of horizontally.The reasoning being the sensor only has a 10' wide path this way at about 35'.This way the animal "should" always be centered.

my 2 cents

Mine's upside down, works fine.

Darn Canadians, mounted sideways...... That is an awesome Idea, wish I would have thought of it. I will incorporate that idea into my next cam. Thanks for that tip.

You can also just paint the sides of the fresnal lense to limit the beam going out.

When I got a little carried away once with my drilling, and drilled my PIR opening the same size as my lens/flash holes (TOO big) I "narrowed" my beam back down just by placing some electrical tape all around the outer edge the fresnal lens on the inside of the case "reducing" the opening. Worked just fine.
