We expands our range of motion detectors with the new Presence Detectors. With these devices, which are easy to install, significant energy savings of up to 40% can be achieved, something key nowadays due to the rise in the cost of electricity.
This range of Presence Detectors, like Motion Detectors, is available in White, Black, and Silver color options.
Presence Detectors and Motion Detectors use the same infrared technology based on temperature changes, detecting small movements within their coverage area.
The difference between the two lies in how the Luminosity parameter is measured.
Presence Detectors constantly measure luminosity and are capable of turning off the lighting if the natural light level increases, even if there are still people in their detection area.
On the other hand, Motion Detectors measure luminosity only at the time of motion detection and the lighting will only be turned off when the timing period from the last activation ends.
Presence Detectors are suitable for continuous work areas (offices or classrooms), while Motion Detectors are suitable for passageways or areas where there is no natural light input (hallways or bathrooms).
The main advantages of using Presence Detectors and Motion Detectors are energy savings, comfort, and low investment costs. The automatic lighting of passageways or rooms, activated only when people are detected, prevents the light from remaining on when the room is empty, which is essential for proper and necessary use of energy. Additionally, it provides the user with the ease and comfort of not having to worry about turning the lights on and off.
Presence Detectors also incorporate different settings such as: the time in which the luminaire will remain on; the adjustment of the luminosity level value, which determines when the luminaire will be turned on or off; and sensitivity, which limits the range of detections and is especially important in unstable environments.
They are perfect for installation in hallways, offices, conference rooms, receptions, stairs (independently turning on lighting for each floor), garage entrances, public bathrooms, and in any area where lighting automation is desired.
