    Description

    FIELD



    [0001] The present invention relates generally to ceiling mount intrusion detectors. More particularly, the present invention relates to a ceiling mount intrusion detector with a passive infrared (PIR) mirror with an adjustable mount height.

    BACKGROUND



    [0002] Known ceiling mount intrusion detectors use a PIR sensor. However, one of the biggest challenges with known ceiling mount intrusion detectors is uncertainty in a mount height, which depends on a height of a ceiling in a region in which a ceiling mount intrusion detector is installed.

    [0003] Many ceiling mount intrusion detectors claim to operate within a mount height range so as to be used in a plurality of different environments. Nevertheless, if the detector is not properly adjusted upon installation, then good performance at all mount heights within a claimed mount height range cannot be guaranteed. Furthermore, it is known that one mount height within the claimed mount range produces the best performance of the detector and that performance declines as the mount height moves away from the one mount height.

    [0004] For example, some known ceiling mount intrusion detectors claim to operate within the mount height range of 2.4m-3.3m or 3.65m-4.8m. For the detector with the mount height range of 2.4m-3.3m, it is known that the mount height within the mount height range that produces the best performance of the detector is 2.7m and that performance declines as the mount height moves away from 2.7m and towards either 2.4m or 3.3m. Similarly, for detectors with the mount height range of 3.65m-4.8m, it is known that the mount height within the mount height range that produces the best performance of the detector is 4.2m and that the performance declines as the mount height moves away from 4.2m and towards either 3.65m or 4.8m. In a worst case scenario, the performance will decline to a point where the detector will not identify an alarm condition. Furthermore, neither of the above-identified detectors covers the mount height range of 3.3m-3.65m so the performance of the detector mounted within such a range cannot be guaranteed.

    [0005] In order to guarantee the performance within the mount height range, known ceiling mount intrusion detectors include a mechanism to adjust the mount height of the detector by adjusting a PIR optical system of the detector. However, all known ceiling mount intrusion detectors that include the mechanism to adjust the mount height of the detector include a Fresnel lens and not a mirror. Nevertheless, mirrors provide several advantages as compared to Fresnel lenses. Therefore, it would be desirable for a ceiling mount intrusion detector to include the mirror as well as the mechanism to adjust the mount height.

    [0006] US4339748 discloses a passive infrared detection system which exhibits a consistent optical aperture and sensitivity over different operating ranges. The system includes a mirror assembly having a plurality of spherical segments arranged in two or more ranks, each corresponding to a different operating range. Each mirror segment is disposed at its respective focal length from a detector, and is of a size and configuration to provide an intended optical aperture to achieve uniform detection sensitivity irrespective of the range of the target.
    WO2014/155088 discloses a detector unit comprising reflectors and an adjusting member moveable from a position remote from the reflective elements, to an adjusting position in which the contact surface has contacted the reflector, thereby adjusting the reflective elements by adjusting their tilt.

    DETAILED DESCRIPTION



    [0008] While this invention is susceptible of an embodiment in many different forms, there are shown in the drawings and will be described herein in detail specific embodiments thereof with the understanding that the present disclosure is to be considered as an exemplification of the principles of the invention. It is not intended to limit the invention to the specific illustrated embodiments.

    [0009] Embodiments disclosed herein can include a ceiling mount intrusion detector with a passive infrared (PIR) mirror with an adjustable mount height. Advantageously, the ceiling mount intrusion detector disclosed herein can include a mechanism to adjust the mirror so as to compensate for the mount height of the detector to extend an operating mount height range of the detector, so as to adjust a pattern size within the operating mount height range, and so as to maintain good performance within the operating mount height range.

    [0010] As explained above, a ceiling height of a region in which the detector is installed can influence a performance of the detector. However, as seen with the detector shown in FIGs. 1A-1C with a fixed design as known in art, if the ceiling height is fixed, then each piece of a mirror in the detector can only collect energy transmitted from a fixed direction. Furthermore, when the ceiling height rises or falls, the mirror can no longer collect the energy emitted from an intruder or direct collected energy to a sensor in the detector.

    [0011] For example, if a ceiling mount intrusion detector that includes the PIR mirror, the mount height range of 3.3m-5.3m, and a detection range of 18m, but no height adjustment mechanism, is mounted at a ceiling height of 4.3m, then a detected performance of the detector can be shown by a pattern as illustrated in the exemplary graph of FIG. 2. It is to be understood that, because the pattern is symmetric, FIG. 2 only illustrates half of the pattern and the boundary points thereon. For example, the pattern of FIG. 2 includes lines P1-1, P1-2 ... P16-1, P16-2 such that each pair of lines, for example, P1-1 and P1-2, has a common boundary point, for example, P1.

    [0012] As an intruder walks along each line represented by the lines in the pattern illustrated in the graph of FIG. 2, energy emitted from the intruder and directed towards the sensor in the detector can vary, for example, as shown in the exemplary graph of FIG. 3. The pattern illustrated in the graph of FIG. 2 includes 16 boundary points (P1-P16) and, because the intruder can cross each of the 16 boundary points in two directions, includes 32 lines (P1-1, P1-2 ... P16-1, P16-2). Accordingly, the energy emitted from the intruder and directed towards the sensor in the detector as the intruder executes a walk test by walking along each of the 32 lines and crossing each of the 16 boundary points illustrated in FIG. 2 can be illustrated with a respective graph that is similar to the exemplary graph of FIG. 3. In this regard, FIG. 4 is a table of exemplary peak-to-valley ratios of the energy detected during the walk text.

    [0013] As seen in FIG. 4, a minimum peak-to-valley ratio can be 0.68µW, a maximum peak-to-valley ratio can be 1.06µW, and an average peak-to-valley ratio can be 0.87µW. In these embodiments, when the peak-to-valley ratio is 0.3µW or lower, the detector can only distinguish an alarm signal from noise, and the performance of the detector can be bad. However, when the peak-to-valley ratio is 0.5µW or higher, the detector can identify a clear alarm signal, and the performance of the detector can be good, and when the peak-to-valley ratio is greater than 0.3µW and less than 0.5µW, then the performance of the detector can be average. Accordingly, when the detector is mounted at the ceiling height of 4.3m, and the average peak-to-valley ratio is 0.87µW, the performance of the detector can be good.

    [0014] In some embodiments, the ceiling mount intrusion detector in known in the art can include the mount height range of 3.3m-5.3m, and FIG. 5 is a table of exemplary peak-to-valley ratios of the energy detected during the walk test when the detector known in the art is mounted at the ceiling height of 3.3m, 3.7m, 5.0m, and 5.3m. As seen in FIG. 5, when the detector is mounted at the ceiling height of 3.3m, the average peak-to-valley ratio can be 0.22µW so the performance of the detector can be bad. However, when the detector is mounted at the ceiling height of 3.7m, the average peak-to-valley ratio can be 0.51µW so the performance of the detector can be good. Furthermore, when the detector is mounted at the ceiling height of 5.0m, the average peak-to-valley ratio can be 0.43µW so the performance of the detector can be average, and when the detector is mounted at the ceiling height of 5.3m, the average peak-to-valley ratio can be 0.28µW so the performance of the detector can be bad. Accordingly, the ceiling mount intrusion detector that includes the PIR mirror and the detection range of 18m can only operate within the mount height range of 3.6m-4.8m to achieve an acceptable performance.

    [0015] To overcome such limitations, embodiments disclosed herein can include the mechanism to adjust the mirror of the ceiling mount intrusion detector so that, when the ceiling height changes, the mirror can be changed so that the mirror can collect energy emitted from the intruder and direct the collected energy to the sensor in the detector. There are two ways to adjust a mirror's reflection angle: rotate the mirror or move the mirror. FIG. 6 is a perspective view of the PIR mirror in accordance with disclosed embodiments, and, as seen, is integrally formed by a plurality of mirrors. It is impossible to rotate each of the plurality of mirrors so the PIR mirror must be moved to adjust the reflection angle.

    [0016] For example, as seen with the detector with the mechanism to adjust the mirror shown in FIGs. 7A-7C, when the ceiling height rises or falls, the mirror can collect the energy emitted from the intruder and direct the collected energy to the sensor in the detector. In this regard, FIG. 8 is a table of exemplary peak-to-valley ratios of the energy detected during the walk test by the ceiling mount intrusion detector with the mechanism to adjust the mirror in accordance with disclosed embodiments when the detector is mounted at the ceiling height of 3.3m, 3.7m, 4.3m, 5.0m, and 5.3m. As seen, when the detector is mounted at the ceiling height of 3.3m, 3.7m, 4.3m, 5.0m, and 5.3m, the average peak-to-valley ratio can be 0.62µW, 0.79µW, 0.87µW, 0.85µW, and 0.78µW, respectively, so the performance of the detector at the ceiling height of 3.3m, 3.7m, 4.3m, 5.0m, and 5.3m can be good. Accordingly, in some embodiments disclosed herein, the mechanism to adjust the mirror of the ceiling mount intrusion detector can adapt the detector for good performance and operation at ceiling height variances of up to 2m. Furthermore, the mirror designed for the ceiling height of 4.3m can be used at any ceiling height in the mount height range of 3.3m-5.3m.

    [0017] In accordance with disclosed embodiments, the ceiling mount intrusion detector can include the sensor, which can include a single dual element pyroelectric sensor, and the mirror, which can be a high performance energy collector that can be adjusted to account for up to 2m in ceiling height variances. In some embodiments, the detection range of the detector can be 16m-20m, and, in some embodiments, the mirror can be adjusted on a scale as the detection range changes every 0.2m. Furthermore, in some embodiments, the detector can include a bar that includes the scale to guide a user to adjust the mirror on the scale. Further still, in some embodiments, the mirror can facilitate the detector passing known Grade 3 detector standards.

    [0018] As explained above, the mirror of the ceiling mount intrusion detector disclosed herein can be an energy collector such that the mirror can collect a PIR signal from the intruder and direct the collected signal to the sensor of the detector. In some embodiments, the detector does not include a Fresnel lens and does not need a Fresnel lens to collect the energy from the intruder.

    [0019] FIGs. 9A, 9B, and 9C are top, side, and perspective views, respectively, of the mirror and the sensor of the ceiling mount intrusion detector in accordance with disclosed embodiments. As seen in FIGs. 9A-9C, the mirror can include three tiers. Additionally or alternatively, in some embodiments, the mirror can include four tiers. In any embodiment, each of the tiers can approximate a respective ring, and each of the tiers can include a respective plurality of parabolic mirror pieces.

    [0020] The mirror can be designed for good performance at the ceiling mount height of, for example, 4.3m. As explained above, it is desirable to adjust the mirror to adapt the detector for good performance and operation at ceiling height variances of up to 2m, that is, ±1 m. Accordingly, the mount height range can be 3.3m-5.3m. In this regard, when the mount height changes from 4.3m to 3.3m, systems and methods disclosed herein can adjust the mirror to move the mirror towards the sensor. Accordingly, when the detector is mounted on the ceiling and the sensor is mounted above the mirror, the mirror can be moved vertically upwards. Similarly, when the mount height changes from 4.3m to 5.3m, systems and methods disclosed herein can adjust the mirror to move the mirror away from the sensor. Accordingly, when the detector is mounted on the ceiling and the sensor is mounted above the mirror, the mirror can be moved vertically down.

    [0021] As explained above, the detector can include the bar that includes the scale to guide the user to adjust the mirror on the scale. For example, FIG. 10A is a view of a straight bar in accordance with disclosed embodiments, and FIG. 10B is a view of a round bar in accordance with disclosed embodiments. In some embodiments, the bar can be mounted in or on or be integral with a housing of the detector.

    [0022] As seen, the mirror can be adjusted on the scale as the detection range changes every 0.2m. Accordingly, when the mount height range is 3.3m-5.3m, the mirror can be adjusted to 11 different positions. In use, the user can adjust an arrow to the mount height for the detector to identify a distance and a direction of movement for the mirror to achieve the best performance for the detector. For example, the mount height of 4.3m can correspond to 0 on the scale on the bar, and when the mount height changes from 4.3m to 3.3m, the mirror can move upwards 2.6mm to achieve the best performance for the detector. Similarly, when the mount height changes from 4.3m to 5.3m, the mirror can move down 2.6m to achieve the best performance for the detector.

    [0023] In some embodiments, the user can manually or via a manual input (i.e., a knob or dial) adjust the mirror the distance and the direction identified on the scale. Additionally or alternatively, in some embodiments, the detector can automatically detect the distance and the direction identified on the scale responsive to the user setting the mount height on the scale and automatically adjust the mirror the distance and the direction accordingly, for example, using a processor executing control logic or the like. In any embodiment, the mechanism to adjust the mirror can be similar to the mechanism to adjust a zoom lens in that a mechanical ring can rotate to drive the mirror up or down without rotating the mirror. Indeed, the performance of the mirror can be non-rotationally symmetric.

    [0024] Although a few embodiments have been described in detail above, other modifications are possible. For example, the logic flows described above do not require the particular order described or sequential order to achieve desirable results. Other steps may be provided, steps may be eliminated from the described flows, and other components may be added to or removed from the described systems. Other embodiments may be within the scope of the invention.

    [0025] From the foregoing, it will be observed that numerous variations and modifications may be effected without departing from the scope of the invention.
