Motion Activated Lighting Control


Choose between two equally simple motion-activated devices: Open/Close Sensor which mounts to any door or window or Motion Sensor which mounts on a wall. Either one can be set to turn on a light when activated and turn it off when the door or window closes or motion has stopped being sensed.

Let Motion Control the Lights

MOTION ACTIVATED CONTROLS
Description
Would you like to turn on a light every time a closet door is opened and then have the light turn off when the door is closed? Maybe you just need a light turned on without having to feel around for the switch in the dark. Either way, we have a solution for you. In the above illustration we show a door/window sensor (Open/Close Sensor) and a motion sensor. Both can turn on a light when activated. The Open/Close Sensor turns the light off when the door or window is closed and the motion sensor turns it off after a period of time of no motion. Both communicate wirelessly to an LampLinc (Dual-Band) (or any dual-band device) which plugs into a standard outlet and communicates over the homes electrical wiring to either a plug-in module or wall switch.
