PIR Lights

Read more about PIR Lights

Security lights with passive infrared motion detectors comes in all shapes and sizes, and often utilise any of the three more popular lighting technologies: halogen, LED, or energy-saving fluorescent. Usually you’ll be able to pre-set the duration of light output and sometimes a ‘dusk to dawn’ photocell is also present, so you can set the lamp to only be triggered when ambient light falls below a certain level.

Lyco’s range of security lights includes anything from a coach lantern - ideal for residential use - to more workmanlike floodlights or bulkheads. In addition to being effective security lights these fittings are ideal in areas of a workplace where illumination isn’t required non-stop. A powerful halogen floodlight, for instance, which will guzzle power if left on permanently, might be a more viable proposition if it can switch on and off automatically.

Initial investment, running costs

Halogen lamps are often very affordable up-front, and they produce an extremely high quality light with peerless incandescent colour accuracy. The downside is always their relatively poor level of energy-efficiency and consequent high running costs by comparison to CFL lights or LED. Halogen lamps are also much shorter lived - typically 2,000 hours as opposed to 15,000 hours in many fluorescent lamps and up to 50,000 hours in LED lamps.

Solar-powered LED Lights

LED technology is continually under development, particularly in areas such as lumens per watt performance. Already in recent years it has come a long way, and the coupling of LED with solar panels is a particularly exciting development. With LED lights being so low-powered, a solar panel can easily gather enough power by day to run an LED light fitting all night. Thus it is that we now have a choice of solar-powered LED security lights, outdoor spotlights, porch lights and garden lights.
