Can a spirit set off a motion detector?
#11
I find it hilarious when paranormal teams use these to detect ghosts.

Motion detectors can go off with vibration, a light, heat changes, an insect, a shadow.

oh wait its easier and more exciting to say they captured a ghost.
Belief bias occurs when we make illogical conclusions in order to confirm our preexisting beliefs. Belief perseverance refers to our tendency to maintain a belief even after the evidence we used to form the belief is contradicted.

It seems that motion detectors give off false alarms all the time. Most people simply stick with or switch to an actual entry alarm for protection. So I guess if you switch and a spirit still manages to get in, then you might have something.
'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

I work in a secure facility (locked) with motion sensor lighting. Our lights will go on and off as shadows from outside affect them. It doesn't take much sometimes. Headlights can do the same thing. Try pulling the drapes and then see what happens.

Yes, they can definitely set off a motion detector. I have experienced this phenomenon first hand during investigations.

With all the non paranormal causes how can you be sure of your claims? Remember spirits have never been proven to exist.

My opinion is that a ghost/spirit would not set off a motion sensor. It would take a physical body or object to do that..

If a ghost can be seen and captured by a camera then in theory they would be able to be seen by a motion sensor. If it's a light sensor, then it would depend on whether or not the thing could cast a shadow. Still don't rule out bugs though. The sensor might not pick up balls of paper due to the speed it passes, but an insect could fly slower or land on the sensor.
