Entry alerts or entrance chimes send instant notifications when someone enters through a monitored zone. Used by businesses, shops, and stores not only as a security precaution, but also for customer service enhancement.
When to Use Motion Based Entrance Alerts:
- Use in hallways or when door stays open (mall entrances for example)
- Use when metal doors or building materials may prevent magnetic door/window contacts from working correctly
When to Use Window/Door Contacts for Entry Alerts:
- You want detection only when door or window is opened
- You don't want any "motion-based" false alarms
