When placed correctly, indoor motion lights provide great convenience, function and savings. The principle is simple - the light motion sensor control is located in a wall switch unit, which is added as a replacement for the normal light wall switch. Once you add a couple of indoor motion light sensors to a few rooms in your house, you will wonder what you ever did without them. The motion sensor switch uses your existing house wiring, and is very easy to install. Instead of the normal switch, the wall switch plate for the motion light sensor will look like the picture above. After using these light sensors for many years, we've listed below some of the top uses for these products in an indoor environment.
When the light sensor in the new wall plate picks up motion, the light turns on. Once motion is detected, the sensor can typically be set to leave the light on for a fixed period of time (from 5 seconds to 25 minutes), or to turn the light off as soon as the sensor stops picking up motion. This automatic function saves money - the lights only stay on as long as you need them. These lights also typically include an on / off button, allowing you to simply turn the light off or on, regardless of whether there is motion in the room.
A key decision to make is determining what rooms in your house, based on your usage patterns, will work well with these motion detector light products. Here are some of the best choices we have found for these motion lights, based on the need for light in the room when there is motion:
