Stay still! It can't see you if you stay still.

Unobtainable Object

Motion Detector is an object unobtainable by players through normal means. This item's information is present in the game files, but not intended by developers to be in players' possession.

Motion Detector is a wiring object that was found in USCM Bunkers before they were removed from the game. The only remaining place in which motion detectors still exist is in a single challenge room, known as platform4. In the challenge room, it is hidden beneath the floor, so that players cannot scan it, making it unobtainable to players through normal means.

It triggers a signal when it detects an entity within its immediate area. However, it scans more slowly than a Proximity Scanner. The motion detector's appearance is identical to that of the Fingerprint Scanner.

Door Automation

When used to automate door opening and closing, the same warning that applies to proximity scanners also applies to motion detectors.
