This 240v outdoor PIR motion sensor is perfect for mounting in the garden to control the garden lighting system. Sealed into an IP rated box, the sensor is waterproof and versatile in terms of it’s mounting position (any flat surface). An internal dip switch control box allows various setting to be adjusted easily, including a dusk to dawn setting whereby the sensor will either work throughout the day or only at night, high or low sensitivity (detection range), and various time delays.
This PIR sensor uses infra-red, IC and SMD technology to detect movement, as well as light. When movement is detected, the sensor will turn on the light fitting which will then turn off again once the object detected is out of range.This adds to security around the home, and also reduces energy bills as the lights will only remain illuminated when required, not all night.
It is recommended that the sensor is mounted on a surface which will not be affected by direct light or with any obstructions nearby. An external mounting bracket is supplied, however the box can also be mounted via the internal mounting holes in each corner. 2 cable glands are also supplied for ease of installation / wiring offering secure, waterproof connections on top of the self sealing membrane of each outlet.
