Outdoor wall lights help the outside of your home look great and give you the light you need, but outdoor wall lights with sensors give you all that as well as being a practical, energy efficient solution for lighting the space outside your home. These lights are equipped with motion sensors that detect movement in the surrounding area, automatically turning on the light when someone enters its detection range. This type of sensor doesn’t only provide convenience, but also helps you to save on your energy bills, because the light is only switched on when it needs to be. Outdoor wall lights with sensors can also help to enhance security by deterring potential intruders, and notifying homeowners of any unexpected visitors. In this post, we will discuss the benefits, installation, and maintenance of outdoor wall lights with sensors, as well as the various features and styles available in our range.


What are outdoor wall lights with sensors?

Outdoor wall lights with sensors are simply wall lights designed for outdoor use that are equipped with motion sensors, or other types of sensors that detect movement or changes in the surrounding environment. Unlike outdoor wall lights without sensors, which provide a constant light, outdoor wall lights with sensors are designed to activate when motion is detected and then turn off after a set period of time. This can be useful for providing additional security and safety lighting, as well as conserving energy and keeping electricity bills low. Outdoor wall lights with sensors can also be adjusted for sensitivity and how long they are switched on, to suit the needs of the household.


How do outdoor wall lights with sensors work?

Outdoor wall lights with sensors work by using a motion sensor to detect movement in the surrounding area. When motion is detected, the sensor sends a signal to turn on the light. The light stays on for a set period of time, depending on the specific model and settings, before turning off again.


What types of sensors are used in outdoor wall lights?

Outdoor wall lights with sensors use a motion sensor to detect movement in the surrounding area. When motion is detected, the sensor sends a signal to the light fixture, which then turns on the light. The light will remain on for a set period of time before turning off again, which can be adjusted according to the specific settings of the light fixture. 


The different types of sensors used in outdoor wall lights include passive infrared (PIR) sensors, microwave sensors, combination sensors, and dusk to dawn sensors. PIR sensors detect changes in infrared radiation, while microwave sensors emit and detect microwave signals. Combination sensors use both PIR and microwave technology to detect motion. 


Dusk to dawn sensors detect changes in ambient light levels and turn the light fixture on at dusk and off at dawn, providing a constant source of illumination throughout the night, without you needing to remember to turn the light off in the morning. Outdoor wall lights with sensors are a convenient, energy efficient way to light up your outdoor space.


What are the benefits of using outdoor wall lights with sensors?

There are several benefits of using outdoor wall lights with sensors:

 

  • Outdoor wall lights with sensors help to reduce energy consumption and lower electricity bills. By only activating when motion is detected, they do not remain on unnecessarily, which saves energy, and therefore money.
  • Outdoor wall lights with sensors provide an extra layer of security for your home. When motion is detected, the lights turn on, alerting you and deterring potential intruders. This added security can help to give you peace of mind, and protect your home and property.
  • With outdoor wall lights with sensors, you don’t have to worry about disturbing local wildlife, or more importantly, annoying your neighbours. By only turning on when motion is detected, they are less likely to be a nuisance.
  • Outdoor wall lights with sensors are convenient. You don’t have to worry about manually turning on and off the lights when you leave or return to your home. The sensors do the work for you, making it easier to light up your outdoor space when you really need it. 

With these benefits, it’s no surprise that outdoor wall lights with sensors are becoming increasingly popular with homeowners that want to enhance the lighting and security of their outdoor spaces.


Can outdoor wall lights with sensors be used with LED bulbs?

Yes, outdoor wall lights with sensors can be used with LED bulbs. In fact, LED bulbs are the preferred choice for outdoor lighting due to their energy efficiency, long lifespan, and low maintenance requirements. Many outdoor wall lights with sensors have integrated LED bulbs, which means you don’t have to worry about changing bulbs. LED bulbs are available in a range of brightness levels and colour temperatures, so you can choose the right level of brightness for your outdoor space. Whether you prefer a warm, inviting glow or a bright, crisp light, LED bulbs are by far the best bulbs for outdoor wall lights with sensors.


What is the range of motion detection for outdoor wall lights with sensors?
 

The range of motion detection for outdoor wall lights with sensors can vary depending on the specific model and type of sensor used. Generally, the range of motion detection for PIR sensors, which are the most common type of sensor used in outdoor wall lights, is between 10 and 50 feet, with a detection angle of around 180 degrees. However, this can vary depending on the specific model and settings of the light fixture, so check before you buy. 


Microwave sensors typically have a longer range of detection, and can be up to 100 feet or more, but may be less accurate than PIR sensors. Combination sensors can provide both long range detection and high accuracy, making them a popular choice for outdoor wall lights with sensors. It’s important to consider the range of motion detection when selecting an outdoor wall light with sensors, as it will determine the coverage area and overall effectiveness of the light fixture.


Can outdoor wall lights with sensors be adjusted for sensitivity and duration?

Yes, many outdoor wall lights with sensors can be adjusted for sensitivity and duration. The sensitivity of the sensor determines how easily the sensor detects motion, while the duration determines how long the light fixture remains on after motion is detected. These settings can be adjusted using the controls on the light fixture itself, or with a remote control or smartphone app. Some light fixtures may also include a dusk to dawn setting, which automatically turns on the light at dusk and turns it off at dawn, regardless of motion detection. Adjusting the sensitivity and duration of the sensor will help you get the best from your wall light.


What are the most popular styles of outdoor wall lights with sensors?

The most popular styles of outdoor wall lights with sensors include traditional lanterns, contemporary designs, and minimalist styles. 

 

  • Traditional lanterns are classic and timeless, with features such as decorative glass panels, metal frames, and intricate details.
  • Contemporary designs feature sleek lines, simple shapes, and modern materials such as brushed steel or matte black finishes.
  • Minimalist styles are characterised by clean lines and unadorned surfaces, creating a streamlined and understated look. 

Whichever style your home is, there’s an outdoor wall light with a sensor to suit. In addition to the style, you’ll also find a variety of finishes and colours, such as black, bronze, stainless steel, and white, so you can find the perfect match for your home’s exterior.


How do you install outdoor wall lights with sensors?

Installing outdoor wall lights with sensors can be done in a few simple steps:

 

  • Choose the location where you want to install the light fixture. This will be where you need the light the most, and ideally, will be easily accessible for wiring and maintenance.
  • If you’re connecting to the mains, turn off the power supply to the electrical circuit that you will be working on. This can be done by switching off the appropriate circuit breaker at the main electrical panel. Do not attempt this if you don’t have any experience with electrics – get an electrician to do the job safely for you. If you’re using a solar powered wall light with sensors, you probably won’t need an electrician, as long as you follow the instructions carefully.
  • Use the mounting bracket and screws provided to mount the light fixture to the wall. Make sure that the fixture is securely attached and level.
  • Follow the manufacturer’s instructions to connect the wiring of the light fixture to the electrical circuit. This may involve connecting wires to a junction box or directly to the electrical wiring in the wall.
  • If the light fixture comes with a separate sensor unit, install the sensor according to the manufacturer’s instructions. This may involve connecting wires to the sensor unit and positioning it in a suitable location.
  • Once the wiring and sensor are connected, turn the power back on and test the light to ensure that it is working properly. Adjust the sensitivity and duration of the sensor as needed.
  • Once the light is working properly, secure any loose wiring and finish the installation by attaching any covers or decorative elements provided with the light fixture.

It is important to note that for some outdoor wall lights with sensors, especially those that connect to mains power, installation may require the services of a qualified electrician. It is important to consult with a professional if you are unsure about the installation process or have any concerns about electrical safety.


Are outdoor wall lights with sensors weather resistant?

Yes, most outdoor wall lights with sensors are designed to be weather resistant and able to withstand exposure to the elements. They are typically made from durable materials such as aluminium, stainless steel, or plastic, and are designed to be waterproof and rust resistant. The degree of weather resistance can vary depending on the specific model and manufacturer, but most outdoor wall lights with sensors are designed to meet or exceed industry standards for weather resistance, such as the IP (Ingress Protection) rating system.


It is important to choose an outdoor wall light with sensors that is rated for the specific weather conditions in your area, such as heavy rain, high winds, or extreme temperatures. If you’re living in an area that is particularly exposed, then choose a light with a higher IP rating, such as IP68. Proper installation and maintenance can also help to ensure the long term durability and weather resistance of outdoor wall lights with sensors.


How do you clean and maintain outdoor wall lights with sensors?

Cleaning and maintaining outdoor wall lights with sensors is important to keep them working with optimal performance. Some of our best tips for cleaning and maintaining outdoor wall lights with sensors:

 

  • Before cleaning a light that is connected to the mains, turn off the power supply to the electrical circuit that the light is connected to. This will prevent any electrical hazards while cleaning.
  • Use a soft cloth or brush to remove any debris, such as dirt or leaves, from the surface of the light fixture. Be careful not to damage the sensor or wiring while cleaning.
  • If necessary, use a mild detergent and water solution to clean the surface of the light fixture. Avoid using abrasive cleaners or chemicals that may damage the surface or sensors – in many cases, a damp microfibre cloth may be all that is needed.
  • After cleaning, rinse the light fixture with clean water to remove any remaining detergent or debris.
  • Use a clean, dry cloth to dry the light fixture thoroughly. Make sure that the sensor and wiring are completely dry before turning the power supply back on.
  • Regularly check the bulbs in the light fixture and replace any that are burned out or damaged. LED bulbs typically last longer than traditional incandescent bulbs, but it is still important to check and replace them as needed.
  • Periodically check and adjust the sensitivity and duration of the sensor according to the manufacturer’s instructions. This will help to ensure that the light fixture is functioning optimally and providing the desired level of brightness and security.

By following these tips, you can help to keep your outdoor wall lights with sensors clean, well maintained, and functioning properly for years to come – which is exactly what you want and need.
