Simplify your life by installing a ceiling light with motion sensor!
Tired of looking for the light switch when you walk through your garage or climb your stairs with your arms full of whole week’s groceries? There’s a simple solution to it, install a ceiling light with a motion sensor, and you’ll avoid potential accidents. Here are a few tips.
Why install a ceiling light with motion sensor at home?
Installing a ceiling light with a motion sensor means you don’t have to worry about whether the light is on or off. This type of ceiling light is very practical in high-traffic areas and public places because it saves energy while providing security lighting. Therefore, it is the practicality that is emphasized with this type of fully automatic product. Another significant advantage is that ceiling lights with motion sensors are often equipped with a twilight sensor, which means that they only switch on when the light is low.
How does a motion sensor work?
A motion sensor consists of an infrared, ultrasonic or high-frequency sensor. While infrared sensors measure the radiation emitted by the human body, ultrasonic or HF sensors are able to detect minor movements, even through certain obstacles. Finally, there are also intelligent sensors capable of recording the occupancy rate of a room and automatically adapting the sensitivity.
How to control a ceiling light with a motion sensor?
As its name suggests, the ceiling light with sensor is designed to operate autonomously. However, it is still possible to switch off the power supply using a wall switch. In addition, other models can still be controlled with a remote control. Finally, the high-end sensor ceiling models can be networked to allow control of several lamps.
Can a motion sensor be added to a simple ceiling light?
Yes, it is possible to add a Motion Sensor Ceiling Lights or any other light fixture. However, if you have a connected LED ceiling light, you will be able to install a compatible, battery-powered motion sensor.

In which rooms can a motion sensor ceiling light be installed?
A ceiling light with a motion sensor is generally installed in rooms where there is passage, such as toilets, hallways or stairwells. Some ceiling lights with sensors can also be installed in the bathroom, so they must have a minimum IP 44 class.
How do I install a ceiling light with motion sensor?
The installation of a ceiling light with motion sensor requires a little thought and some adjustments. Indeed, several parameters are to be taken into account during the installation such as the distance and the angle of detection or the delay of the lighting. Furthermore, if you want to install a motion sensor independent of the luminaire, you will have to modify the electrical installation by replacing the switch with the sensor. If you are not comfortable with this type of manipulation, we advise you to call an electrician who will always be the best person to talk to.
Benefits of motion sensor LED lights in a commercial setting
Motion sensor technology offers many benefits to LED lighting solutions in commercial settings.
LD lights are highly energy efficient. If paired with motion sensors you can reap more advantage. The lights turning off when no one uses a room and turns on when it detects people entering automatically sounds like a blessing. LEDs don’t need warm up time. They are fine with frequent turn off and on factor. With motions sensors, there is no need for your employee to ensure the lights get turned off at closing hours.
In the dark, groping for switches is an issue, especially when employees or visitors are unacquainted with the room. The switches are sometimes next to the door or even outside. If the person that enters the room has both his hands full of files, the issue turns awkward. Motion-activated LED lighting is a wise solution.
The staircase needs to be lit well, so the lights have to be kept on. Similarly, the parking lots and outside walkways need lights all the time. Motion-activated LED lights make sure that people get the light whenever necessary as well as it saves energy when the areas are not in use.
