PIR Motion Detector Sensors For Interior Use
Passive Infrared Sensors For Interior Motion Detection
Motion detecting sensors are not just for outdoor security use, they can be extremely useful inside the home too. For example, you might have some recessed spot lights inside your front door, very useful when you return home of an evening and you need to put down some shopping or remove your footwear, this can be made a great deal more convenient if you were to install a ceiling mounted PIR sensor as this would allow you to have all the light you need as soon as you enter your house, no need to stand in the doorway fumbling around for the light switch. This is one example of many that can make the operation of your interior lighting much easier and much more convenient.
There are energy saving advantages to be had too. Being energy efficient is not just about how much energy a luminaire or light light bulb consumes, it's also about only consuming that energy when it's actually required. For example, using a motion sensor to control the switching of your landing lights will eliminate all those times that they're left on long after somebody has traveled up or down the stairs. Depending on how good the people are in your household at turning lights off, the energy savings by doing this could be huge and your lights will last longer too.
