1022 HD2 with motion sensor

Hello,

I would like to use the 1022 Hd2 with a Panasonic AMN33111 digital motion sensor with low current consumption (digital output) http://datasheet.octopart.com/AMN33111-Panasonic-datasheet-11615840.pdf

i connected the sensors V+ to GPIO pin8, Ground to the ground pin, and digital out to pin7 (button1)

 

but it doesn't trigger button press, how should i connect it to the players GPIO?

thank you

 

Steven

    Hi,

    In order to use the Digital output version of this sensor, you will need to provide an external transistor or FET to interface it. Please see the diagram below for further details:

    The power is available on pin 8 of the GPIO connector. GND is available on Pins 2, 6, 9, 11 or 14. The collector of the transistor goes to whichever GPIO port you wish to use.

    You can use any medium gain NPN transistor, I have suggested BC546B.

    Hello, i'm trying to use BS HD223 player with this PIR motion sensor https://www.dfrobot.com/wiki/index.php/Digital_Infrared_motion_sensor_(SKU:SEN0018) Ground is connected to pin 7, VDC to pin 8 and Allarm to GPIO input 9. But it doesn't triggers the video. Any suggestions what i'm doing wrong?

    Notice the input pullup resistor

    https://docs.brightsign.biz/display/DOC/HDx23+Hardware+Interfaces

    You may need to use a different type of sensor, or add a relay or opto cupler between the sensor and GPIO input.

     

    If you measure the voltage on the input, while the sensor is connected and activated, are you seeing the voltage drops to correct level?

    Hello, when sensor is activated it jums from 0 to 3.3V or around it +- 0.2, (description of sensor isn't correct it doesn't goes low actually it jums from 0 to 3.3V).

    Before we move forward, lets do a basic check.

    Without the sensor, if you short the GPIO in to ground, it should activate whatever you programmed.

    Is it working by shortening the two pins?

    yes :) it works.

    By how your sensor behaves, you would need to reverse its activation in BrightAuthor.

    In "Trigger event On Button" Select  "Up"

    just tried, nop. Doesn't triggers.

    GPIO only triggers on a change, so the button would need to go Down before an Up event would trigger.

    I'm not sure that your sensor is compatible.

    Some help how to set up a BS-PIR-Z (Passive Infrared Motion Detector) with my HD223 Brightsign. I want to play a video when motion is detected and after that play a black video. I understand that it have to be two states (Up/Down) UTP event. Can someone help me with the configuration of the UTP event.
