Outdoor Security Light Frequently Asked Questions

How do motion sensor outdoor lights work?

Whenever motion is detected outside your home, typically by heat signature, the outdoor light will illuminate. These sensors can pick up heat from people, pets, or cars.

Do motion sensor outdoor lights work during daylight?

Most outdoor lights are made with photocell technology to avoid illuminating the outdoor light during daylight. This saves the lifespan of light and energy.

What lightbulb is best for outdoor lights?

It depends on the light. Most outdoor lights come with the best lightbulb to use. But if you would like to replace the bulbs, consider replacing with (LED) lights to produce the same intense light with only a fraction of the power usage.

Sensor lights are a great solution for areas that are not always in use that only need to be lit when people are passing through or using the space.

Utilising a motion sensor light will save power by only switching the light on when motion is detected and will turn back off after a set time. The switch for the sensor light can constantly be left on and the sensor light will work only when it is needed either in your home, business or specifically if you live in a unit or a townhouse complex.

Sensor Light

Once we install your sensor light, we will explain how to adjust the settings for different purposes. With the majority of sensor lights, you can adjust the time they stay on, the sensitivity of the sensor and the LUX.
The LUX setting prevents the light from operating during daylight hours.

These settings can be adjusted until the sensor light is working exactly how you want it too, we will provide advice on how to manage any adjustments, if needed post-installation.
