The most popular sensors now available on the market include: • Microwave - detect motion • Passive Infrared (PIR)- detect temperature • Photocell – uses the natural light from the sun to detect light and dark
Move to illuminate - Microwave Sensors
Microwave sensors are an excellent solution for energy saving. They operate in a similar way to sonar in that they emit a microwave signal and measure how long it takes for the signal they send out to bounce back to the sensor. When something moves in the detection zone, this disrupts the signal and triggers the light to switch on. The microwave sensors are sensitive and so can detect movement and trigger the light to switch on in an instant. Microwave sensors can cut a substantial amount of energy wastage by automatically turning the lights off when the area is left unoccupied, ensuring that the energy required to light a space is only activated when occupied. They are the ideal solution for large commercial or industrial spaces.
Turn up the temperature - PIR Sensors
Just like natural daylight – Photocell sensors
