    You should put them on the opposite wall to avoid false triggering by
    rustling curtains. Place them in a corner so that they face across the
    window, not directly at it. A PIR is most sensitive when an intruder
    moves across it rather than toward it. For more reliable triggering,
    I'd suggest a dual sensor, ie one that combines a PIR and a microwave
    detector. The latter is insensitive to heat variations.
