This vacancy sensor will determine whether your Maestro Wireless controlled lighting and/or appliances are needed based on the lack of movement in a room and ambient light levels provided by natural sunlight. Movement is detected by recognizing heat signatures created by people moving across the sensors field of view. This device, when properly programmed, will turn off up to ten Maestro wireless receiving modules when a room is unoccupied for the specified amount of time. Up to three sensors can be programmed to each switch for maximum coverage.

Compatible Lutron wire-in or plug-in, dimmers and relay switches will automatically respond to these wireless, remote sensors via 434MHz Radio Frequency (RF) communication. Information gathered by the photopic sensor is used for transmitted commands, appropriately adjusting lighting levels remotely as daylight increases or decreases. Another common use for this vacancy sensor is to switch On/Off a plug-in (Floor) fans or portable cooling units. As heat from the sun’s light becomes more or less intense throughout the day, your needs to circulate or cool the indoor air will change.

This is the King of a Motion-Detected Night Lights!

August 16, 2011 Leave a comment

Keep the rooms or hallways brightly lit up only when needed when you install the uMAX into any standard electrical outlet. A special photocell detects when the sun begins to set and automatically turns the device on at dusk. A single, gentle 170 Lux LED will remain on as a night light. When the uMAX detects any kind of movement, it will turn on all 16 of its LEDs for a bright light that is sure to illuminate the entire room until you have exited. The 16 LEDs will remain on for a pre-selected amount of time of inactivity (5 or 10 minutes). The hassle of fumbling for a light switch in the dark will be eliminated as soon as you walk within range of the uMAX. Perfect for lighting hallways, closets, garages, foyers, or rooms that require light for short periods of time. A mirror on the top of the uMAX allows you to adjust the brightness and reflection of the LEDs so you can send light into even the furthest corner of the room.

Sentina PM-315B uMAX Motion-Activated Light
