Shop for motion detectors at SpiritShack! We have a good selection of motion detectors for ghost hunting purposes. Products in the motion sensor family usually use infrared light to detect object and ghost movements. Passive versions detect changes in the amount of infrared light which hit the sensor, such as when a warm or cold body passes through their field of view. The active types emit light and detect changes in the amount that is reflected and received back by the motion sensor. Many of our sensors vary in sensitivity and respond in different ways.
