Microwave Motion Sensor Lighting

Microwave Motion Sensor LightingOne of the worst feelings is waking up the middle of the night to use the restroom and stubbing your toe on the way there. If you are not using motion sensor lighting at home, then you are more than likely no stranger to this type of incident.

These are a number of reasons why you should use motion sensor lighting at home including visibility during the night (especially with little ones), safety, and outdoor patio and pathway lighting.

Today, we’re talking about one of the more popular types of motion sensors installed at home: flood lights. We recently learned about a new product that Merrytek, a manufacturer in lighting control, has developed a new microwave motion sensor for flood lights.

Microwave Motion Sensor LightingA microwave sensor detects motion through the principle of Doppler radar, which is comparable to a radar speed gun. They generate an electromagnetic field between transmitter and receiver, which can detect volume. If there is an intruder on your property (or the detection zone), the alarm system may be activated.

Some features of this product includes:

  • IP65, independent installation
  • On-off function
  • Built-in daylight sensor and 5.8GHZ frequency microwave (C brand license-free operation), automatically turn on or off your lights according to human movement and daylight level
  • Extremely sensitive to motion and can even detect motion behind walls, which can ensure that burglars do not fool the sensor
  • Any disruption caused by movement within the field will be detected, and you will be alerted

The best part? If you are currently using a Passive infrared (PIR) sensor for your flood lights and would like to convert to a microwave motion sensor, you can easily replace your PIR sensor. No hassle at all.
