NV5 – Affordable PIR

NV5 is alarm motion detector based on Passive Infrared Detector – PIR in Malaysia. It detects movements of object within passive infrared. NV5 is the next generation of the ENVY Digital Detection series. NV5 has evolved from its predecessor NV500 – new firmware and improved hardware enables faster and more reliable detection, false alarm immunity and more, packaged in the sleek design you are familiar with.

How to use:



Easy to install. Easy to use.

  • Average time to install: 5 – 10 minutes.
  • No PC board removal necessary, easy PC board installation, clip in/out (when desired).
  • Optional wall/ceiling mount bracket.
  • Panel compatibility: EVO, Spectra, Magellan, 3rd party.

Faster & More Reliable*
NV5 offers superior* (compared to Paradox PRO476 and NV500) :

  • Catch performance.
  • Even detection, no dead zones within the protected range.
  • Response to movements – slow and fast.
  • False alarm immunity Paradox technology, Auto Pulse Signal Processing (APSP) and Dual/ Single Edge Processing enables flexibility in setting detection response time compared to false alarm immunity.
  • Digital temperature compensation – same catch capability at specified operating temperatures.
  • RF immunity.

Customizable Sensitivity Levels

  • 5 levels of sensitivity – choose level according to the needs of the protected area.
  • Pet resistant.
  • Adjustable creep zone – mirror add-on provides enhanced creep zone sensitivity and is recommended for best product performance.

Paradox hybrid cylindrical-spherical Lens (patent pending)

  • Paradox’s Hybrid Cylindrical-Spherical takes the NV5 detection capabilities to a higher level than that of other detectors in this category.
  • The Hybrid lens (3rd generation 3D LoDiff® Fresnel segments) offers the best detection possible for passive infrared energy reception for:
  • 1) Far beams – cylindrical
  • 2) Medium/close beams/creep zone – spherical

This lens design allows for:

  • Ultimate perpendicular beam collection.
  • Optically and digitally equalized beam pattern – all beams optimized for generating equal signal level at any distance or angle.
  • Pet resistance beam pattern.
  • Superior and uniform energy collection translates in a better image quality of the target which provides unmatched detection accuracy and stability.
