The MX-Proximity-Box is a compact, weatherproof interface box (IP66) with integrated microwave radar sensor technology that can be connected to all cameras using MxBus. The MX-Proximity-Box detects moving objects using actively emitted and reflected radar waves. Since it can be installed
at distances of up to 100 m away from the camera (via MxBus connection), the MX-Proximity-Box is a helpful supplement to the passive infrared sensor (PIR) that is integrated with the D15, M15 and ExtIO as a standard.

Special Features Of The Radar Sensor As Compared To The PIR Sensor
The reception behavior of the radar sensor differs significantly from that of motion sensors on an infrared basis. While infrared sensors react relatively unresponsive to movements in a radial direction (straight approaching and distancing, such as a person approaching the door to a building or a car approaches a closed gate), radar sensors
are extremely sensitive to this type of motion. The reverse is true for sideways movements in front of the sensor.


  • Radar wave-based detection of moving objects, even if there is no difference in temperature between these and the environment
  • Ideal supplement to PIR sensors that only react to infrared radiation
  • Detection of all kinds of movements, plus the option to filter out radial movements (only sends MxMessage for approaching/distancing objects, for instance)
  • Pre-defined profiles of approaching/distancing/movements for optimal detection of human movements
  • Completely concealed installation behind wood, plastic or drywall is possible (with reduced detection range)
