White PIR
9 Jun 2014
By Diywidow
, Grimsby
"This product gave a full 180 view.
The white colour blended in with UPVC cladding so didnt cause problems with look of property.
It was easy to install.
Cant comment on reliability as it is brand new.
Product represented good value for money.

You can see this coming
12 Jan 2013
By Dapree
, Lichfield
"Excellent PIR detection range adjustable and sensitive - easy to install and works great.
There are cheaper PIR's available out there - but this is a good quality one which I shall use again
Mounting under a horizontal surface OR a vertical surface gives options for locating the device.
I have marked reliability as Good - only because it is early days yet - I do expect this to be Excellent in due course"

Automatic light switching
23 Nov 2012
By exetered
, Plymouth
"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."

Leaflet error!
23 Oct 2011
By docgk
, SOUTHAMPTON
"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."

compact good value PIR
27 Nov 2008
By marmiesman
, Hinckley Leics.
"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."

"Bought it cos it looks better than other standalone pir. Use it to switch two floodlights on.
Installed it BUT lux control not working - on all the time in daylight or night time. twisted it both ways but no difference.
Ordered a replacement so we will see....."

No longer works
21 Jan 2013
By Bobbyginger
, Harpenden
"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"

"I like the design of this unit and it is one of the few that can be mounted to a ceiling. However, the electronics seem doubtful - it does not work in the manual mode. Auto mode is OK."
