    What sensors to install in addition to my lighting system?

    The sensors are among the convenience accessories of the contemporary world. They use various technologies and offer several application possibilities. Today, these electronic components have found a preponderant place in controlling lighting systems, where they increase user comfort and safety. Here are our Tips for using light and movement sensors.

    The sensor: a very practical lighting accessory

    Lighting with sensors is a topical subject in the world of LED lights. The sensor is a type of material Effective to save more energy and ensure lighting adapted to consumer needs. The sensor associated with light is widely used in common use areas, such as entrances, corridors, aisles and gardens, where there are more people's movements. The objective of the device is to facilitate the passage while making the lighting more comfortable. It is also useful for getting better energy efficiency in these places.

    What are the different sensors sold by Silumen?

    There are two types of sensors available in the new Silumen catalog.

    The light sensor

    THE light sensor Permanently measures the degree of functional brightness in an application area. As soon as this data is deemed too low by the device (when it is dark outside for example), the light turns on automatically. This operation can be direct or remote -controlled for programming and switching. Light sensors are mainly designed to guarantee lighting optimization and better dosage of thelight intensity in the various places of installation. Therefore, for your light sensor to work properly, it is imperative to choose an efficient model, depending on the desired parameters as well as the installation space.

    The motion sensor

    THE motion sensors are devices that allow the lights to automatically turn and turn off. As a rule, they are installed on the communication channels of the light system in order to offer effective operation. THE Best motion sensors have a very precise detection technology that uses infrared radiation. In most cases, it is possible to adjust the lamp lighting duration after movement detection. Thus, each time a movement occurs inside the detection area, the motion sensor triggers the light and activates the delay function which is responsible for the extinction of the luminaire after a period of time.

    What are the advantages of a sensor on a luminaire?

    I'lighting Associated with a cheap sensor guarantees that you have light when necessary. The lighting lights up in the evening, once a low brightness threshold is reached, then died in the early morning when a high level of brightness is found. As a result, light illuminates only by necessity and in useful time, with the key to a substantial energy economy. This light operation combines both functionality, light atmosphere and lighting style. The sensor reacts instantly to heat and is particularly effective. By this device, unwanted guests are kept away from your property.

    How to install and adjust a light sensor?

    Remember that if you have no electric wiring experience, you better solicit the services of an authorized electrician.

    For Installing a light sensor, follow the following steps:

    - Cut the power supply to the main electric box.

    - Unscrew the lighting switch on the wall and connect the white, black and red wires of the cheap sensor to wall wires.

    - Then connect the light sensor wire to that of the light device.

    - Mount the sensor on the wall with the equipment supplied.

    - Return the current and Test the sensor on your lighting.

    The adjustment of operating options is made on the device panel. It concerns the improvement of light sensitivity, the angle of inclination, the late time, etc.

    How to choose my motion or light sensor?

    Before buying a sensor, several criteria should be considered. here are the elements to take into account to choose a motion or light sensor.

    A built -in or protruding installation

    A Built -in motion sensor is integrated into the wall of a support by means of a hole about 55mm in diameter. Only the coating plate appears slightly, but the device is hidden in a wall or in a false ceiling, fitted into a embedding box. A Movement sensor protruding, on the contrary, is positioned on the wall. The clearly visible housing exceeds a few centimeters. This installation mode is much easier to set up, since it simply consists in connecting the electric wires to the mechanism of your best sensor. However, a few essential rules must be observed to guarantee a secure installation.

    The movement sensor detection angle

    It determines the area covered by a motion sensor and remains specific to each equipment. It is for this reason that the value of a detection angle may vary. You have the choice between the Movement sensor 110 °, 150 °, 180 ° or 360 degree motion degree. When a moving element enters the covered area, the lighting device begins to operate. During the movement, the input and output signal gradually changes in each section. The light remains on until the sensor no longer receives information on the temperature variation.

    The sensor detection distance

    It is through the principle of optical triangulation that your motion sensor achieves precise detection of distances. The best sensor is thus capable, thanks to a special receiver, to detect the distance of an object present in its field of action. The scope of the detector, generally between 6 and 12 m, allows rapid ignition (which can be of progressive intensity), but without any physical contact. It is thus possible toBuy a sensor to couple one or more lights, and which plays the role of order in order to feed the lamp for which no switch will be required.

    The wave sensor

    The operating mode of wave sensor is based on the perception of any change that occurs in the controlled space thanks to an ultrasonic wave emission propagated in the area around which the device is programmed. The waves bounce on all the objects present and automatically detect each new element appeared. As soon as a foreign body is detected, the sensor activates the luminaire. At the same time, it perceives temperature variations. Thus, when a temperature change occurs, the sensor is activated instantly by lighting the lamps connected to it. It is One of the best sensors the most used in lighting.

    The sensor protection index

    It is recommended toBuy a sensor with sufficient protection index to ensure the safety and longevity of the device. Each standard must above all correspond to a good degree of sealing of the case. Regarding the performance of protection against water and dust infiltrations, it is strongly advised to base yourself on flawless quality. Therefore, you must opt ​​for devices with a protection sign minimum IP44, effective against humidity, rain and water projections. For protection against water projections coming from all directions (high exposure to rain or classic water jet), prefer a sensor with an IP54 or IP65 index, which ensures a waterproofing farm facing a high cleaner pressure !

    Light sensor 10a or 25a?

    GOOD Choose the caliber of your light sensor wiring is an important step in the dimensioning of the installation which must meet the standards guaranteeing the safety of the device. Essential to the protection of your device, the modular circuit breaker rubs shoulders with motion sensors in order to allow you to better manage its operation and consumption. It is estimated that a 10A system ensures the protection of lighting circuits. In addition, its range of application for sensors is very wide and goes to all your needs. Finally, a circuit of 10a sensor May contain up to 8 light points. The circuit breaker of 25a sensor is used for the protection of all specialized socket circuits. It is modular and secure different categories of circuits, all connected via an electric cable of 2.5mm² section. Obviously, each modular system must control a single circuit.
