Outdoor motion sensors are a widely adopted solution for optimising outdoor home security. These sensors are activated by the emergence of body heat or movement and they can be programmed to switch back off after a short amount of time.
Because the sensors are only activated for short periods of time, they are an extremely economical option that won’t send your power bill soaring.
Aside from the security aspects, outdoor motion sensors prove practical and convenient for day-to-day life. Imagine being welcomed at the door step by a light that makes it easy to find your door keys. The convenience of light on-demand will make it easy to throw out the rubbish, greet visitors, let the dog out and many other outdoor activities.
As with most things, there is always a down side that should be considered. Although motion sensor lighting is a sound economical investment, there is one drawback to this lighting solution. As motion sensors are activated by movement, they could be activated by gale winds or other severe weather conditions. As you are very easily able to check on the reason for the sensor triggering, most believe that the benefits of motion sensors far out-weight this negative.
