Motion Sensor Lights and PIR Lighting
An outside light with a built in PIR is an energy efficient way of ensuring that your home is illuminated at the right time. It will welcome visitors and light their way or can be used to light pathways, gates or other areas where people pass through after dark. Sensor lights only illuminate when they detect motion within the sensor range so save energy in the process.
PIR stands for passive infrared. Any light described as being a PIR security light or a sensor security light has an infrared sensor built in. This sensor acts as a switch when movement or motion is detected and switches the light fitting on for a set period of time. This acts as a convenient way to light certain areas after dark and saves energy too by only switching it on when it is needed.
Up until a few years ago they were mainly connected to bulkhead lights and flood lights but today there is a vast selection of sensor lighting in a variety of styles that have integral PIR units.
Many of them are also fitted with a photocell to make them even more efficient, convenient and environmentally friendly. A photocell, also known as a dusk till dawn sensor, is a simple device that measures the outside light levels. The photocell switches the PIR on automatically at dusk and off again at dawn.
Any outdoor light can easily be converted to a PIR light by the simple addition of a remote sensor. This can be placed anywhere near to the existing installation and provides all of the features previously mentioned.
