Steinel IS1 White PIR Sensor
Q1: Can this sensor be used to trigger an existing light if wired in
A1: Sure, no problem. A qualified electrician should experience no difficulty in doing that for you.
Q2: Can this detector be used to switch on off a small light in a hallway with a 5 watt low energy bulb
A2: This sensor will work fine with a 5W Low energy lamp
Q3: Can i use this to switch on the lights in my hall way of my guest house so that i dont have to leave them on all night for guests, Will it just detect them and switch the lights on.
A3: Yes, that will be fine and will work in the way you want.
Q4: Is there an override facility to be able to switch on the light normally activated by the sensor, So that it's on continuously
A4: Unfortunately this sensor does not have a manual override function on it, however can can link it to a switch which should allow you to manually override the sensor.
Q5: Is this sensor suitable for use with a 40w exterior floodlight?
A5: Yes, it will work perfectly with a 40w exterior floodlight.
Q6: Can this sensor be used with led lighting? I have read elsewhere that some sensors "leak" voltage, Which can cause leds to flicker.
A6: I have checked with the manufacturers instructions, and it does mention LED lights in there so they can be used with this sensor.
Q7: Hi! I have a large area to cover. Could i use two sensors for the same lights set.
A7: I can't see why you can't use two sensors in a large area so one triggers the light from one end and the other from the other end
Q8: Can this sensor be used to only come on when it is dark?
A8: Yes it can, the less sensitive the twilight threshold is set for it will come on only when it has become dark.
Q9: Can the twilight facility be switched off as i want to use this in a dark interior hallway, So it should only come on when movement is detected and not when it is dark, Which is most of the time.
A9: The sensor will only activate the light when it senses movement (and heat), the twilight setting is to adjust the light level at which the sensor starts to detect movement
