PIR Motion sensor module


PIR(Passive Infrared Detection)are used to detect motion of human movement. This version has a large lens which can support long range and wide angle. 2.54mm standard connector is easy to fix it anywhere.


  • Long range

  • Wide angle

  • Low consumption

  • DC 3.0-5.5V power supplier


  • Input Voltage: DC3.0-5.5V

  • Current: 100uA(max)

  • Detecting distance: 9m(max)

  • Output signal: 0,3 VCC (Output high when motion detected)

  • Sentry Angle: 120°

  • Connector:3Pin 2.54mm pitch

  • Size: L36W26H21(mm)


The following sketch demonstrates a simple application of sensing montion. When someone moves in its detecting range, it will output High through its SIG pin and the LED will light. Otherwise, it will output LOW. Then you can use it to detect the motion of people.


Includes important code snippet. Demo code like :

/*macro definitions of PIR motion sensor pin and LED pin*/
#define PIR_MOTION_SENSOR 8//Use pin 8 to receive the signal from the module
#define LED    4//the Grove - LED is connected to D4 of Arduino

void setup()

void loop()
    if(isPeopleDetected())//if it detects the moving people?
void pinsInit()
void turnOnLED()
void turnOffLED()
/*Function: Detect whether anyone moves in it's detecting range*/
/*Return:-boolean, ture is someone detected.*/
boolean isPeopleDetected()
    int sensorValue = digitalRead(PIR_MOTION_SENSOR);
    if(sensorValue == HIGH)//if the sensor value is HIGH?
        return true;//yes,return ture
        return false;//no,return false


Help us make it better

Thank you for choosing Seeed. A couple of months ago we initiated a project to improve our documentation system. What you are looking at now is the first edition of the new documentation system. Comparing to the old one, here is the progresses that we made:

  • Replaced the old documentation system with a new one that was developed from Mkdocs, a more widely used and cooler tool to develop documentation system.
  • Integrated the documentation system with our official website, now you can go to Bazaar and other section like Forum and Community more conveniently.
  • Reviewed and rewrote documents for hundreds of products for the system’s first edition, and will continue migrate documents from old wiki to the new one.

An easy-to-use instruction is as important as the product itself. We are expecting this new system will improve your experience when using Seeed’s products. However since this is the first edition, there are still many things need to improve, if you have any suggestions or findings, you are most welcome to submit the amended version as our contributor or give us suggestions in the survey below, Please don’t forget to leave your email address so that we can reply.

Happy hacking
