Today infrared techniques have a wide variety of applications in both fire and intrusion alarm systems. Pyroelectric sensors are used in both flame detectors and passive infrared intruder alarms to sense the infrared emission of open flames and the blackbody radiation of human targets, respectively. In this paper we discuss the different applications and demonstrate the impact of the sensor technology on the system performance. It can be shown that in order to get an optimum detector an independent optimization of sensor technology and signal processing is not possible but that the two areas have to be optimized as a whole system.
