I would suggest using the value "motion" rather than "infrared" and "camera", and have edited the wiki page.

IR sensors for automatic doors do exist, but are rare. I suspect that value is mostly used where motion detectors are present.

Motion detectors are far more common, and use a variety of technologies (see the wikipedia page for "Motion detector").

The value "camera" is unclear. Does this refer to a door opened when an operator sees the visitor on a camera and opens the door manually or remotely? Or some sort of facial recognition program? If so, I don't believe that is "automatic".

I suspect this will also be used in error to refer to motion sensors.
