Movement Sensors, Security Lighting & Energy-Saving

Movement sensors are excellent security and energy-saving devices

Movement Sensors & Security Lighting

Security lighting can be one of the most cost-effective ways of keeping your home safe. Movement sensors can be installed along with new floodlights, or can be retrofitted to existing outdoor lighting.

Security lighting and a movement sensor at the front and rear of your home is an effective deterrent to night-time intruders. Prevent criminal activity by adding exterior lights that are triggered by movement. This also has the added bonus of lighting up your entryways when you return home at night. No more fumbling for keys in the dark!

Sunset switches are another option that can also be installed to automatically activate outdoor lights at dusk. They can be programmed to turn on for a certain period after dark, or to operate all night until dawn.

 

Movement Sensors & Energy Saving

Another benefit of movement sensors is to increase the energy efficiency of your home. Motion detectors can be used indoors to only activate the lights when a human is detected in the room. This contributes to less wear on the globes which results in lower replacement/maintenance costs. There is also the added convenience of automatically switching lights!

This is also fantastic for outdoor lighting so you don't have to leave a light on all night, wasting energy and annoying your neighbours!
