Dual Purpose - Door or Swipe Sensor
When something is stored at the deep end of your cupboard or wardrobe, it’s easy to forget its existence. Out of sight, out of mind! Unfortunately, you’ll waste many resources because of this, especially ingredients that go bad after a certain period!
So, how can you address this? Simple, add lights and this dual-purpose LED sensor! With this sensor, you can automate your fittings to switch on when you open the door and off when you close it. This system will enable you to easily see everything inside your cabinets, making everything accessible!
Remember that this sensor is dual-purpose? Aside from being a door sensor, you can also use it as a swipe sensor. You can pair it with your under-cabinet lights to conveniently access them even while your hands are covered with flour and batter!
Compatible with Many LED Lights
If you think that you’ll have compatibility issues with this LED sensor, don’t worry! It pairs well with various LED fittings, so you can use it to set up a convenient automated lighting system. You can even use it with the LED fixtures that are already installed in your space! It will help you save money instead of purchasing a new motion-activated lighting fixture.
Motion-activated lights are not as essential as typical household lighting units like light bulbs, switches, drivers, etc. However, it can help you lower your energy cost if you include it in your lighting set-up. With this device, you won’t forget to switch off your lights because it turns on/off when a door opens/ closes or when you swipe a hand!
Ideal for Various Applications
While the kitchen is where you'll get the most use with this LED sensor, you can still partner it with various lighting fixtures throughout your home! For example, you can use it inside your walk-in closet, so when you open/ close the door, you don't need to reach for the light switch because it'll automatically switch on!
Say you have LED lights under your bathroom vanity. You can add this sensor so that when you need extra illumination, you just have to swipe your hands underneath, and they'll turn on! Even if your hands are wet, it's okay because you just need to hover over the sensor, not touch it.
100W (12v DC) or 200W (24v DC) Maximum Wattage
You have many choices with this LED sensor. Aside from selecting between a door or swipe activation, you can also pick between connecting a 12v DC or 24v DC fitting. It’s perfect because you can just work with whatever you have!
If you use a 12v DC lighting fixture, you can load a maximum capacity of 100w power. Alternatively, for a 24v DC fitting, you can connect a maximum capacity of 200w power. Ensure that you follow this precisely because overloading will not just damage the sensor but may also affect your lights. If this happens, all your hard work will be gone, so be extremely careful and review the installation instructions!
Two Mounting Options - Recessed or Surface-Mounted
Can’t decide whether to have your LED sensor recessed or surface-mounted? You don’t need to rush because you can do both!
If you choose to surface-mount your LED sensor, all you need to do is put it on top of the surface where you’re installing it and attach it. Super, easy! As for the recessed, although it’s still manageable, you need to note that there’s a cut-out hole that you must trim. Ensure that you follow that measurement precisely to guarantee that your sensor will sit perfectly against the surface.
There’s no issue if you decide to switch from surface-mounted to recessed. However, you’ll need to patch a hole if you ever want to surface-mount your already recessed sensor.
7cm Sensor Distance Range
This LED sensor has a 7cm detection range. You might think it’s very limited, but since it’s a door or swipe-activated sensor, this much distance is acceptable. However, if you’re thinking of other applications, like outdoor motion-sensor, this may not deliver your expectations. You will need a different type of sensor with a broader detection range.
Fortunately, we’re stocked up with various LED-compatible sensors that can accommodate your requirements. If you need your sensors to have a 360-degree detection range and angle, you can check out this PIR sensor. It can detect movement up to 8 metres and has a daylight sensor that can modify sensitivity depending on what you need!
