This 12v external PIR motion sensor is ideal for mounting in the garden to control a low voltage outdoor lighting system. Sealed into an IP rated box, the sensor is waterproof and can be mounted onto any flat surface). A dip switch control box is located inside the box which allows a number of settings to be adjusted easily. These include: a dusk to dawn setting which controls whether or not the sensor will work during daytime or only during darkness, a low or high sensitive detection range, and various time delays from 5 seconds to 8 minutes.
This PIR sensor uses infra-red, IC and SMD technology which is triggered when movement is detected. This results in the sensor turning on the light fitting(s) whilst the trigger is in range, and then off again after the set period of time.This creates a sense of security around the home and helps reduce energy bills with little energy wastage when lights are not required.
TIP: The sensor should be mounted on a flat surface out of direct light and with no obstructions which may affect the functionality. An external mounting bracket is supplied, however the box can also be mounted via the internal mounting holes in each corner. 2 M20 cable glands are supplied for ease of installation / wiring offering secure, waterproof connections as well as the self sealing membrane outlets.
