Making The Jobs You Do Every Day Quick And Easy

New high-performance recessed ceiling-mounted PIR presence detectors from Timeguard have been designed with installers in mind: they are easy to fit, easy to set up and easy to adjust.
Just connect the wiring box, slip it through the ceiling aperture, and plug in the detector using its RJ11 connector before spring clipping into the ceiling. Even better, you can plug in up to five slave detectors, all controlled from a single master. That’s six detectors in all – with an overall capacity of 240W LED/fluorescent lighting (2300W halogen). You only need to set up once at the master, and of course, a master/slave set up will save you money as well. It’s a solution that’s ideal for corridors or large areas.
On top of that, these new detectors have really accessible controls: there’s no need to remove the detector form its ceiling aperture and risk damaging the décor to get at them. Simply twist the detector and the inner cylinder drops down, revealing the controls for lux level (10 to 2000 lux) and time (30 seconds to 30 minutes). Push up and twist, and the controls are hidden and locked away again. Ingenious.
Each compact flush mounted presence detector has a diameter of just 47mm with an 8m detection field. They are low profile and suitable for small ceiling voids.
Stand alone single detectors with accessible controls are also offered.
