"I have been using these for years and although they don't look flashy they do the job. I have ones still working that I installed 10 years ago. The reason for the 4 out of 5 for reliability is me being a bit picky. If there is a lightning strike in vicinity of the installation I have found that these fail between one and three months later. I even forecast it to my customers when they tell me there has been a strike. But clearly this is a good simple product."
"ideal if you want more low wattage lights in more spots a round area to be lite. better than trying to set up 3 or 4 PIRs not to interefere with each others sensors and ending up with a disco light show!!!"
"Bought as a replacement for an existing PIR. Used this to control two lights either end of my garage in a very dark garden. easy to fit and works well. Very reasonable price in comparison to other sellers."
"Was somewhat skeptical of the quality of this sensor given the price, but my fears were unfounded. Works exactly as promised. Fixed this within the confines of my porch so that the light comes on when entering and exiting the house. Works perfectly. Easy to install and wire up and adjustments to sensitivity easy to make. Only gave 4 stars for reliability as I have only just installed it."
"Have had one of these operating the light under my carport for several years without any problems. Purchased this one for a security light at my daughters property. Reasonably easy to wire - not too cramped. I would suggest that the only thing to watch is the accuracy of drilling if you are mounting it onto brick. Another advantage is that you can always include additional lights."
"A well made, solid product with everything you need in the box; including an extra grommet if you have to use the second knock-out for cabling. Easy to do the initial set up with the "walk-test" feature, good range and sensitivity. The best aspects of this particular model are that the electrical terminals are big enough to take several wires easily; they are presented face on to you when the box is mounted and there's enough room in the box to route the wires - what a nice change that is!"
"fantastic,, I have had this PIR in operation for a while now and it is great. Easy to install, simple to set up, easy to follow NOTE: You will need a length of 4core cable (3core+earth) for your return feed to your light.. Don't shop around, this is the best one I have had"
"Used a few of these now for different applications. They are easy to fit and the stand offs on the mountings allow easy cable entry. They are easy to set up and are direction adjustable. Wiring has arrows for live in & out instead of having to look in the data sheet. The only issue i had was the fixing holes only allow a screw with a very small diameter head. Overall good units."
"I have only just fitted this product so cannot really comment on reliability. However it worked effectively straight out the box and is still working during todays heavy snow. Installation is easy and the connection block for the terminals is good quality. Great to be able to see the instruction leaflet on Screwfix's web site to make sure it was suitable before purchasing. Excellent service from Screwfix as always."
"I recently bought 2 of these PIRs. One was to replace the same type of unit which had been in place for at least 5 years. On the old one, the plastic over the PIR had become brittle and cracked (in a very sunny position) - the unit hadn't stopped working, but had become too sensitive to wind and other false triggers. But plastic for 5+ years in the sun - that's worth 5 stars for reliability.
The new units were quite easy to fit and both are working fine, with a good range of adjustability for level of darkness and duration of light."
