PIR Motion Sensor

Hello, I am trying to connect the PIR motion sensor to GPIO in XD234, I set it up so that when the sensor responds, the video should switch, and the sensor is triggered, but the video does not switch, I tried to change the values ​​in the trigger motion sensor on button window, but still doesn't work, what am I doing wrong?

Here are the diagrams for the sensor

    Hello Roman,

    Are you connecting to the Signal and Ground on the PIR motion sensor (X1 "S" and "G")?  The "V" is voltage IN to power the PIR (assuming a standard voltage like 12VDC or 5VDC).  You will need to tie the PIR power supply Ground together with your BrightSign Ground pin on the GPIO or it will not trigger. The BrightSign likely does not have enough power to operate the PIR (it's only 3.3VDC on the V-OUT pin).

    It may be also be that the signal on the PIR relay is not "released" right away so may not give an "UP" state to the BrightSign.  Can you put a multimeter on the output of the PIR that you are using to watch the behavior of the signal?  You should be using the Auto Reset as "ON" as well so that it resets the PIR after a trigger.  I'm not sure how to set the Reset time on that particular model of PIR though.  You may need to fiddle with that.

    Let me know how that works...

    Cheers,
    Monica

    Also - make sure your GPIO setting is set to INPUT in the Presentation properties.  ;o)

    Hello Monica,
    I connected "S" to pin 3, "G" to pin 1, "V" to pin 2 of the GPIO, since the sensor is designed for 3.3-5V. The sensor is triggered, as evidenced by the LED indication on it. When measuring the voltage between "G" and "S", when the sensor is triggered, it shows 3.3V, when turned off ~ 1.8V. 

     There are three encoders on the board: 
    1)T.on - Adjusts the signal duration when an object's movement is detected. The time for which the sensor will produce a guaranteed high level at object detection. Duration range: one second to five minutes.
    2)T.off - adjusts the duration of ignoring motion when repeating sensor triggering. The time at which the sensor will not respond to a moving object when the sensor is cyclically triggered. Time range: from zero to five seconds.
    3)SENS - sensor sensitivity adjustment.

    I am making a presentation in BA Connected, when i can see GPIO setting for input/output? Or do I need to make a presentation in Bright Author?

    I accidentally closed the contact G to S, and found that when these contacts are closed, even with the V contact disconnected, it starts to work, although whatever trigger I choose (up / down) it still works the same way, while when closed, the voltmeter shows 0V
    And I don't understand how it works.
