Magic Mirror technology from Siemens – Jul 11, 2013– Zug, Germany  (Techreleased) – The Siemens Building Technologies Division has introduced new passive infrared motion detectors to protect against intrusion. These devices utilize the patented Magic Mirror technology from Siemens, which sets new standards in detection sensitivity and enables an extremely compact design. In addition, Magic Mirror detectors are less susceptible to false alarms.

Magic Mirror is an enhancement of Siemens black mirror technology and provides a number of important improvements. The innovative dual mirror design increases the focal length, which gives the detectors a more homogeneous detection sensitivity, especially for wider areas. A new white-light filtering system reduces false alarms caused by external light sources such as the car headlights or lamps. Optional models with integrated anti-masking technology are available.

Magic Mirror models with a range of 12 or 18 meters are currently available. They share the same low-profile housing so intruders cannot tell the type of detector they are faced with. This has proven to be an effective deterrent. Thanks to their inconspicuous design, the detectors are suitable for indoor use, even in formal spaces.

For the first time, the same bracket can be used for all Magic Mirror models for wall or ceiling mounting. The integrated walk test simplifies and speeds up installation while the flexible end-of-line concept allows fast and error-free connection to the control panel.

Thanks to energy-efficient electronics, all Magic Mirror detectors consume significantly less power than comparable models. The devices also meet all relevant national and international standards and safety approval regulations.

Even before their official market launch, Magic Mirror detectors from Siemens received the prestigious “red dot award: product design” for their innovative and attractive design.
