Intruder detection method by utilizing a time variation of Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) channel (MIMO Sensor) has been proposed. Although the channel capacity on the MIMO transmission is severely degraded in time variant channels, we can take advantage of this feature in MIMO Sensor applications. We have already demonstrated the effectiveness of 2×2 MIMO sensor using 2.4GHz band at a small room (Size is 50m2). In this paper, we compare the detection probability of SIMO/MIMO sensors when the number of channel responses are same between SIMO/MIMO sensors: The numbers of transmit and receive antennas are 1 and 4 (SIMO), it is clarified that 2 and 2 (MIMO). The measurement was carried out at the room with the size of 140m2. From the measured results, 2×2 MIMO sensor obtains the same or higher detection probability compared to 4×1 SIMO sensor regardless of the measured location.
