We have taken feedback and suggestions from hundreds of users of our PIR v2 to create a new sensor that is more functional and easier to use than ever before.
Here are some of the new features of our PIR v3:
- A new integrated transmitter can wirelessly trigger cameras and wake flashes. The transmitter is compatible with existing Camtraptions Wireless Receivers.
- A new sensitivity algorithm, refined and improved over 18 months of field trials, delivers increased sensitivity, faster response time and fewer false detections.
- A total of 160 different programs for still and video shooting now provide more options than ever before. New programs include a keep awake feature to prevent equipment sleeping and an option to wake flashes wirelessly before triggering the camera. These new programs expand the range of cameras and flashes that can be used effectively in a camera set-up. Want to use a Sony or Fujifilm camera with wireless Nikon flashes – no problem!
What hasn’t changed? Our PIR v3 features the same fantastic weather-proof enclosure, long battery life and ease of use of our PIR v2. The wireless transmitter can also be disabled if you need to deploy a wired set-up.
Setting up a completely wireless camera trap could not be easier...
Simply plug the included Camtraptions wireless receiver in to your camera's shutter release socket and the PIR sensor will wirelessly trigger your camera when motion is detected.
If you want to use wireless flashes as well then you will need a separate wireless transmitter attached to your camera's hot shoe so that the flash burst will be synced with the shutter. The channel of the flash transmitter and receivers should different to the PIR sensor. Watch the video on this page to learn more.
Camera connecting cables
Please note that camera connecting cables must be purchased separately. These are required to connect the PIR sensor or wireless receiver to your camera's shutter release socket. Canon, Nikon and Sony cables are available here and Sony multi cables (for video shooting) can be found here.
AA batteries and MightyPod not included.
If you are planning to use the v3 PIR Sensor for video recording on a Canon camera via Magic Lantern, then please get in touch with us first to discuss compatibility.
