"This item was purchased to replace a defective sensor. The switch works as it should with time and lux being easy to adjust.
The cable inlet is behind the backplate and is fed through a grommet. Wiring is easy and almost identical to the outgoing unit. Fitted within 15 minutes and 5 of those where spent taking the old one off.
3* for reliability as I can't give an opinion on this product after only a week doing its job."
"The product is good and easy to install - however the 'Installer Guide' leaflet has a most confusing error. In the 'troubleshooting section' PIR keeps activating....... it states to reset, leave for a maximum of 5 minutes --WRONG--, the unit will never reset if you read this advice !
The true situation is , LEAVE FOR A --MINIMUM-- of 5 minutes, then it resets fine!!
I hope this saves you time in finding it out for yourselves."
"A versatile compact 180 degree PIR with the option of wall or ceiling mounting. Easy to install and adjust. Only slight issue is that the mounting holes at the back do not allow for adjustment. Not a problem on wood but on masonary some adjustment to level would be useful as getting 2 holes close together completely level can be problematic."
"I too bought one of these which, after about a year, now just stays on permanently, even though its under cover of the porch. I liked the design so I bought another, so I'm waiting for that to go now. Disappointing not only because it affects the security of my house, but I now have the hassle and expense of replacing them. I bought from the catalogue, so hadn't, read these reviews, but what are the Buyers doing!? If the reviews keep saying things are no good then dont keep stocking them1"
