Outdoor Motion Sensors
These outdoor motion sensors have multiple purposes, including scaring off potential intruders who may think twice when it becomes apparent they can’t sneak up on your home without being noticed. These may also work to scare off unwanted nighttime visitors such as foxes.
Automatic Outdoor Lights
These Steinel sensors make your outdoor lights automatic. This generally makes your life easier by illuminating your porch without you having to worry about finding a switch, allowing you to easily enter your home rather than fumble in the dark for your door’s keyhole. If you have children who like to play in the garden after dark, having Steinel sensors on your lights will keep them illuminated and help prevent them from tripping over anything until they decide to come back inside. These Steinel sensors will also turn off your outdoor lights after there has been no movement detected for a while, so you don't have to worry about accidentally leaving them on overnight and raising your energy bill.
What are Steinel lights?
Steinel invented a motion sensor for outdoor light, so Steinel lighting commonly refers to outdoor sensor lights. You will find that Steinel security lights are used for both residential and commercial properties as Steinel lights are a great security feature to keep your premises safe. With a Steinel security light, you can easily deter trespassers from attempting to sneak into your property.
Are Steinel outdoor lights waterproof?
An IP65 outdoor light with sensor is the recommended IP rating for outdoor Steinel lights. At the minimum, outdoor lights should have an IP rating of IP44. However, both IP44 and IP65 do not mean that Steinel lighting is waterproof - only water-resistant. A rating of IP65 has better water-resistance than a rating of IP44, which is why IP65 is recommended, especially for areas that may have frequent rainfall.
How energy efficient are outdoor sensor lights?
Outside door lights with sensor are incredibly energy efficient compared to traditional lighting solutions. With a lighting sensor, lights only turn on when they detect nearby movement, meaning that you can save money on electricity by not having to keep the lights turned on in the evening to light up pathways and driveways. Although they still consume energy, it is not as significant in comparison to inefficient light bulbs.
Do you need to clean outdoor sensor lights?
An outdoor wall sensor light should be cleaned regularly since they are frequently exposed to the outdoor elements. This means that dirt, debris, and grime can build up, leading to potential damage of the lighting fixture. An outdoor sensor light in particular should be well maintained to ensure that it continues to work properly. Simply wiping down the fixture with a soft cloth and mild detergent should do the trick (with the bulb removed).
