Motion Activated Switch that Allows You to Control the Connected Light from More Than One Location

Heath/Zenith SL-6117-WH Motion Sensor Timer 3-Way Wall Switch - White

 

 

 

  • Compatible with incandescent, halogen, compact fluorescent (CFL), fluorescent, LED lighting, and motors up to 1/8 hp
  • Modes include: always off, always on, and motion activated
  • On-time is adjustable from 5 to 30 minutes
  • Photocell allows switch to operate based on existing lighting to save energy

 

Your home’s switches can now be transformed to motion sensing lights. Replace your existing 3-way switches with this PIR sensor and you’ll be able to control your light by simply walking into the room. Having a motion sensor at each end of a hallway or large room makes sure your path is always lit, no matter which direction you are entering from.

When in AUTO mode, the sensor will turn the light on and off based on the detection of motion to ensure lights will only be on while the room is occupied, saving energy. The amount of time the light stays on after it detects motion is adjustable from 5, 10, 20, or 30 minutes. A photocell within the switch also evaluates the current amount of light to determine whether or not the lights should be turned on. If it senses that there is an ample amount of existing light in the room, the switch will not turn on the light, even if it detects motion. You can also easily switch to ON or OFF mode if you don’t want to use the switch as a motion detector by sliding the button located on the front of the switch.

You’ll get powerful and high quality sound to fill the entire room without the hassle of installing rear speakers.

Using Sony’s S-Force Surround technology, this system delivers simulated surround sound from just two compact units to eliminate the need for rear speakers.

The sound bar includes three HDMI inputs with 3D so you can connect multiple devices to the receiver at once. Then, use only one HDMI cable to connect all your devices, including the receiver and all connected devices, to your television. Your television will send and receive signals from the receiver through a single HDMI cable, cutting back on cable clutter. Standby pass-through technology allows you to access the connected devices, even when the sound bar is powered down. A remote with two AA batteries are included, giving you full control of the sound system from anywhere in the room. You can even operate the system directly from your television screen with the Sony BRAVIA Sync features on selected television models. Read more
