Upcoming Intrusion Motion Detector Shootout, Which Models To Test?

We are planning a shootout of Motion Sensors.

Minimally, we will include models from Bosch, Honeywell, Napco, and DSC. Which others should we test?

Test criteria will include sensitivity, detection range, and pet resistance. Dual tech or Tri tech sensors are also being considered. For now, we are thinking of wired only, but your feedback on whether we should test wireless models is welcome too.

If you have suggestions on models on things to test, post them here!
