Sensor lights are a common feature in offices and homes. They serve two main purposes; general lighting and security. Sensor lights are good for security because they have in-built motion sensors
. Passive motion detectors have tiny electronic sensors designed to pick up heat waves. They are reactive to human body temperature. Once you walk into a room, the sensors detect your body heat and the bulb lights up. The absence of heat detected when you walk out makes the light go off.
Sensor light fixtures can be used to open and close automatic doors and in automatic doorbells. Active motion sensors
, common in workplaces, are normally linked to an alarm system. When someone walks into a restricted area, the motion sensor will detect the change in energy and set the alarm off. Types of motion sensors include: Passive Infrared (PIR), MicroWave (MW), dual technology motion sensors, area reflective type and ultrasonic sensor
