Heath-Zenith Motion Sensor Lamp Control Sockets

Wireless Motion Sensor Triggers Two Indoor Lamps for Instant Security Alert - Check Best Price Here

You don't need to rewire your house in order to install motion-activated lighting. The Motion Sensor Lamp Control Sockets are triggered by a weather-resistant motion sensor that runs on two AA batteries (sold separately), so you can set up this system in minutes. When the motion sensor is activated, it sends an RF signal to both lamp sockets, which will turn on lights in your home, so you'll know instantly if a prowler is on your property or if guests have arrived.

Two Screw-In Lamp Control Sockets Included

The two lamp control sockets screw in between any 120-watt light bulb and the lamp socket. Thanks to a built-in photocell, you can set the motion sensor to signal the lamp control sockets only when it's dark out to save electricity. Once activated, the lamps will stay on for the length of time you specify.

Motion Sensor Features Extra Protection

The included motion sensor features the Creep Zone Advantage: Unlike most motion sensors, which allow an area directly beneath them to go undetected, this sensor looks down in addition to out for maximum protection.
