We added the pir to the lightwave range, we only have a few switches and sockets, but wanted to light up the corridor that the sparky didnt know what to do with. So my other half was sold on the idea of a pir. After a bit of messing around ,we got it to trigger when we wanted and i now have a well lit corridor. The instructions were a littlecomplicated and we did have to refer to the manufactuer, but we got there. For the price we paid it is a decent resolve.

Does what it says and sends a signal to other. Does what it says and sends a signal to other lightwaverf devices when movement is detected so for example will turn on a lightswitch etc. But no way of signalling an app or similar say to advise you of an intruder.

I added this to an current rather in depth lightwave household automation set up. I use this pir to detect when we enter our garage so the major lights will come on and then transform the light back off following a couple of minutes. Definite benefit aid when coming into the garage coated in do it yourself dust/filth/paint and conserve marking the partitions and switches in trying to fumble to change the mild on,normally takes 2 aaa rechargeable batteries and as opposed to other electronics, will not feel to intellect working with rechargeable batteries relatively than disposable types. The contents include things like double sided tape and screw fixings. So, you can exam out your mounting posture with the tape to start with just before you make issues extra long-lasting with rawl plugs and screws. The contents also include blanking strips in circumstance you want to prohibit the horizontal field of detection. My only grumble with these pirs is the vertical industry of detection looks a little narrow, so you have to component this into your positioning and installation.Here are the specifications for the LightwaveRF PIR Motion Detector:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Battery operated and can be placed anywhere to trigger LightwaveRF Lighting, Power and Heating devices
  • Many Energy Saving and Security applications
  • Variable delay settings for lighting applications
  • Angle of detection – Vertical max 65 degree’s
  • Intuitive, easy setup and use

Appreciate the technique, no fuss to put in, terrific.

What home automation is all about. Fantastic – i am applying it to get my corridor/landing lights to occur on when necessary alternatively than owning to change them on and off myself. A little bit bewildering setup guidance – i imagine they experienced the options for whether or not the light-weight goes on and off or stays in the completely wrong way spherical – but as soon as i sorted this out it labored well. So outdated-fashioned getting to switch corridor lights on and off.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Great for home automation
  • Works well BUT.
  • Works OK, but low quality construction.

Nice finish, reliable, high quality and adjustable. Lightwaverf are brilliant – integrates fully with their light switches etc.

Works well for the most part, however there seems to be an irritating dead period. When it detects a body presence it triggers the lights to come on, however, if it goes off while your still in range there is a time lag of 5 to 10 seconds before it reacts to your continued presents.

Works flawlessly, in so far as it turns paired light switches etc on and off in accordance to the way its set up. However, its nowhere near as flexible as the philips hue pir sensor (for various reasons, i have both systems in my home)i would suggest that if you’re just getting started with a “smart home” lighting setup, then the hue system is well worth looking into before making a decision.

Replacement for slave switches. . Using two with one jsjslw400wh for bottom and top of stairs, works great.

When it’s dark and i am coming home with friends, i always let them in first. I am confident the sensor will turn on the lights every time. My unit is about 5m from the switch. Had to play with its positioning at first to get desired effect. I have recently replaced batteries for the first time. These were rechargeable batteries (fairly well-used ones) nearly 4 months in – in an area with fairly high day-to-day traffic. It flashes red when low on juice.

Surprised to see all the negative comments about this product. Surprised to see all the negative comments about this product. I am about to purchase my fourth as i have them in three rooms at the moment and have decided to add another one. I purchased my first about two years ago and have never had a problem with any of them. If i had to find a negative it is that even top range batteries only last about 10 -12 months, but to be honest thats not much of a issue.

Works ok, but low quality construction. . Works ok, unlike most of the other reviews i have had no problems with the operation, it is very sensitive which is fine for my application. I did have this problem at the start as the switch had synced with two other devices, which was very confusing. I have only give it 3 stars as the construction if very poor, there is a clear plastic back plate which is way to low quality for the job. The whole unit bends is the wall is not very flat.

What home automation is all about. Excellent – i am using it to get my hall/landing lights to come on when needed rather than having to switch them on and off myself. Slightly confusing setup instructions – i think they had the settings for whether the light goes on and off or stays in the wrong way round – but once i sorted this out it worked well. So old-fashioned having to switch hall lights on and off.

I added this to an existing fairly extensive lightwave home automation setup. I use this pir to detect when we enter our garage so the main lights comes on and then turn the light back off after a few minutes. Definite convenience aid when entering the garage covered in diy dust/dirt/paint and save marking the walls and switches in trying to fumble to turn the light on,takes 2 aaa rechargeable batteries and unlike other electronics, doesn’t seem to mind using rechargeable batteries rather than disposable ones. The contents include double sided tape and screw fixings. So, you can test out your mounting position with the tape first before you make things more permanent with rawl plugs and screws. The contents also include blanking strips in case you want to restrict the horizontal field of detection. My only grumble with these pirs is the vertical field of detection seems a little narrow, so you have to factor this into your positioning and installation.
