Home Motion Detector Lighting

One of the more recent crazes in home lighting is the use of motion detectors. However, if you think about it, there is nothing crazy about this trend since it makes perfect sense. Whether used for security or convenience, home motion detector lighting can add a very useful automated touch to lights both inside and out.

The most obvious application, and one that is in wide use today, is to turn on outdoor security lighting when anyone approaches within the sensor's range. Studies confirm common sense that a well-lit home is less vulnerable to a home invader than one that has large dark areas near points of entry.

Adding motion detectors or motion detector lights is an effective way to solve that problem. They trigger the lights on approach, which has two advantages. A light that comes on unexpectedly tends to startle the unwanted visitor. That provides extra motivation to change their plans and move on to an easier target. Homeowners also save money on electricity by not having high-wattage bulbs burn all night long, when and where they are not really needed.

That goal can be accomplished with separate motion detectors that are connected to a whole system, one that includes lights, a horn or other security components. Alternatively, as is the case in many fixtures, the motion detector can be integrated into the lamp housing itself. Both are effective, though in some cases separate motion detectors have a greater range and angle of coverage.

However, security is not the only reason that motion detectors can be a huge benefit. They can supply extra safety and convenience, as well.

You pull up into the driveway or walk outside on a dark night. You cannot see a thing. That toy or bicycle is just waiting there for you to step on. That low garden fence you always forget about is ripe for bumping into. Motion detectors can turn on the lights at your approach and prevent accidents.

They can also make it much easier to turn on the lights when you just need a brief light. You do not have to be near the switch, you just approach or wave an arm and on pop the lights. Now you can find your keys, put away that annoying toy or just make it into the house without any trouble.

Many of the same considerations apply to indoor motion detectors, too. However, indoor sensors come in an even wider variety of types and styles. Existing wall switches or outlets can easily be converted to contain motion detectors. That makes it very easy to have a system that turns on the light when you enter, then turns it off when you leave.

Motion detectors can be integrated with hallway lamp sconces to provide illumination when you enter. You save electricity and bulb life by having the light not on when you are not there.

Look into the full range of motion detectors available: wireless, infrared, ultrasonic, weatherproof and many more.
