PIR lighting installers are frequently asked by home owners to install these outdoor lighting systems when they want to achieve the twin benefits of improved security combined with economic savings on the running cost.
A passive infrared sensor (PIR sensor) is an electronic sensor that measures infrared (IR) light radiating from objects in its field of view. They are most often used in PIR-based motion detectors. PIR lights are also referred to as motion sensor lights.
A passive infra-red sensor (PIR sensor) is an electronic sensor that measures infra-red (IR) light radiating from objects in its field of view. These sensors are most often used in PIR-based motion detectors. PIR security lights are activated when motion is detected within the area being ‘monitored by the PIR sensor area. PIR security lights add extra security to your home, garage, outbuildings, shed and whole areas of your garden. PIR lighting installers will survey your property and advise you on the best locations to install the lights.
The clocks went back at the end of October which means that by late afternoon, it’s dark. Keep safe and light the way. Security lights will also deter any intruders as the light will snap on when their movement is detected.
2. Functional Doesn’t Mean Unattractive
When you think security lights, you think commercial-looking fittings, but this doesn’t have to be the case. See below our decorative PIR favourites to light the way to your door.
3. Save Money
Choosing a light that is activated by movement means that you won’t need to keep the light on all night long for security. This can be very costly, especially now that the evenings are darker earlier as your light will be on for even longer. Choose PIR lighting and save money.
Both PIR and photocell lights are operated by sensors, but they each rely on a different types of sensor. PIR lights rely on a movement sensor, whereas Photocell lights rely on a light sensor.
The movement sensor of a PIR light is triggered by movement in front of it. The light sensor of a Photocell light is triggered by a lack of daylight.
As soon as movement is detected by a PIR light, it switches itself on. As the evening draws in and darkness is detected, the Photocell light switches itself on.
These lights detect natural light and automatically turn on after sunset. They also shut everything down when the sun rises, so nothing burns power during the day. A built-in photocell is used in ‘dusk to dawn lights’ to automatically switch light on when darkness falls and switch off again at sunrise.
We issue an electrical certificate at the end of each and every job, this is not only a mark of our quality workmanship, it is also an assurance for our customers of the professional job our PIR lighting installers have completed but serves as a reminder of the warranty agreement that accompanies everything we do.
