Assignment 1: The Central Idea and Lines of Inquiry



Let's Begin by adding your team's Central Idea, Color Scheme, Inquiries into, the Lines of Inquiry, Questions, Font Type and Font Size.

Central Idea: New Technology impacts our home security.

Questions:
1) How do motion sensors determine threats
2) In what ways will motion sensors advance over the years?
3) How much would robberies increase without alarm systems?
4) In the future will alarms be able to speak, if so, how?
5) How do surveillance cameras work?
6) How can voice activation tie in with surveillance cameras?

Lines of Inquiry:
1) Motion sensors are able to determine threats in multiple ways.
2) Alarm systems protect our homes from burglars.
3) There are many different types of surveillance cameras.

Colour Scheme: Light blue, Dark blue and Gray

Font Size:
1) Central Idea: size 95 (times new roman) (BOLD)
2) Headings: size 20 (times new roman) (BOLD) (Underlined)
3) Body: size 14-18 (times new roman)

Questions for Albany Interview: (Luke Carey)
1) What is the latest technology used to secure homes?
2) What are some of the measures you take to keep home owners safe?
3) How do the latest motion sensors determine threats?
4 ) How, do you think motion sensors will advance over the years?

Questions for S.S.I Interview (Luke Carey

1) How does high technology help with security?
2) What are the names of all the motion sensors you sell?
3) How do they work?
4) What can motion sensors be used for besides doors?
Questions for Albany Interview (Mateo Blacquiere)

Question # 1 how many surveillance cameras are at albany?

Question # 2 does the security department at albany connect the security systems up around the homes.

Question # 3 what types of technology is used to secure the marina?

Question # 4 when and which part of albany was the first surveillance camera installed?






Entry Number Six (By Luke Carey)

Monday 19th March 19, 2012

Today our group did not get to meet our mentors however we did discuss several things. We finally got our inquiries into and Questions sorted out. Here are my group’s questions. How do motion sensors work? In what ways will motion sensors advance over the years? How much would robberies increase without alarm systems? In the future will alarms be able to speak, if so, how? How do surveillance cameras work? How can voice activation tie in with surveillance cameras? Here are my group’s lines of inquiry. Motion sensors are able to determine threats in multiple ways. Alarm systems protect our homes from burglars. There are many types of surveillance cameras. For no these are our final questions and lines of inquiry.

I also got lots of individual work done today. In I. T. Ms. Hutcheson got my wiki account working so I would be able to use it for exhibition. This blog is very helpful and allows me to stay in contact with my group members. I have already posted our group’s central idea, colour scheme, font size an lines of inquiries. Individually I also researched more about motion sensors and started answering my questions. This week I will start making my first drafts of information and visual aids. I think our group will use a doll house and put motion sensors, alarm systems and surveillance cameras in the house.




Entry Number Seven (By Luke Carey)

Tuesday 20th March 20, 2012

As a group we got many things done today. We had a whole hour period and we used this time wisely. The first thing we discussed was our group’s information. We all read a couple of articles. Some of the research even started to answer some of our questions and lines of inquiry. Another thing we discussed was ways to present information. We talked about using my sister’s doll house as a 3D model. I mentioned we could use actual motion sensors and alarms instead of putting fake things on the house. Finally we discussed our questions for our interviews. I thought of many different questions. The questions for Albany would include. What is the latest technology used to secure homes?What are some of the measures you take to keep home owners safe? How do the latest motion sensors determine threats? How, do you think motion sensors will advance over the years? Then for homework individually I thought of some questions for the S.S.I interview on Thursday.How does high technology help with security? What are the names of all the motion sensors you sell? How do they work? What can motion sensors be used for besides doors? Next for Exhibition homework I also updated the blog again and included my questions for the interview. I really look forward to tomorrow!



Radar- Based Motion Sensors (Luke Carey)





Motion sensors can determine threats in multiple ways. One of the ways for a motion sensor to determine a threat is by sending out supersonic waves. These waves then bounce back to the sensor and say if movement occurred. If it sensed movement an alarm or anything else it was programmed to do would go off. These motion sensors are called radar-based motion sensors. It is very efficient and is one of the newest motion sensors. Radar Based Motion sensors are not just used for security. They are not just used for security they are also used also used in doors, lights and other things too. In 2007, because of crime, 10,000,000 radar based motion sensors were purchased in the United States. Home owners found this kept their home much safer. Most motion radar based motion sensors have sensitivity control so your pet does not trigger an alarm. There are wireless and wired radar based motion sensors. They both have advantages and disadvantages. For example the battery powered motion sensors have to have batteries changed often.
