Why is my motion sensor sending a false detection?

CPI Security -

The motion sensors in your home are designed using passive infrared technology to pick up a combination of motion and infrared radiation emitted or reflected from an object.   Pets, ceiling fans, plants, balloons, insects and curtains are common causes of false detection with motion sensors as they can generate movement and can have a temperature variance when compared to the background temperature.
