LED-based outdoor motion sensor lights are gaining wide acceptance worldwide. They are becoming essential accessories that can be found in every homes, parks, art gallery, amusement centers, not forgetting major community streets and several neighborhood that have been paralyzed by violent crimes.
Recently, I visited South Korea, and while reading one of their English daily newspapers, I discovered that the country is investing millions of dollars in research and development (R&D) towards mass production of smart energy-efficient motion activated LED lights.
What is truly amazing is the fact that South Korea government is not only talking-the-talk, but also acting it out! Seoul was one of the major cities I visited, the fireworks and light artworks that I saw were truly spectacular.
Motion activated security lights are energy-efficient lighting systems. They cost less to run and can drastically reduce carbon emissions which contribute to global warming. You will be helping the world when you use energy-saving motion sensor security lighting systems.
Jordan’s team from GlobalSecurityExperts.Com uploaded the 95secs video. It clearly demonstrates how outdoor lighting systems triggers when motion is detected. Watch the video, I’m sure you will find it interesting.
Why Outdoor Motion Sensor Lights Are Truly Remarkable
In this age of global warming awareness, so many other countries like United States and Dubai are among other countries that have discovered the great energy-saving potentials of integrating motion detection with LED lighting systems.
So instead of having an always-on lights which consumes lots of power, contributes to higher harmful C02 emissions, and raises your electricity bills; sensor lights simply trigger-on-demand! Here are some really interesting ways motion sensor light systems are being used:
Combine Video Surveillance Camera With Lighting Systems
LED-based motion sensor night-light system can be combined with motion activated security cameras to get a crystal clear image video recording. This is a smart security systems for home that is especially recommended for yards, gates and garden.
In this case, not only will your lights switch on when motion is detected, the motion camera will also fire up to capture whoever is sneaking around on your property. Now, you can kick your lawn destroyers in the balls. I think this lighting system is great for schools, businesses, homes and other real estates.
“Please, Follow The Lights … “
One great way LED lights with motion sensors are finding niche application is in street security systems where the LEDs light up when motion is detected or someone walks along the street corners.
This is a very cost-effective way to protect people and properties on dark street corners that are known for violence, theft, vandalism and graffiti paintings. They can also be regarded as an advanced form of beacon lights that are used as navigational guides helping drivers see road curvatures ahead so that they can adjust their braking and speed so as to avoid road hazards.
Motion sensor lights can also be used as exit guide in large galleries and exhibition halls. I noticed this product at an exhibition event not too long ago. The motion detector lights are embedded on the floor and they just activate to show directional signs (exit, toilet, stairs, etc.) when motion or combinations of footsteps sounds and motion are detected.
They are different from emergency lights which are battery-backed lighting device that comes on automatically when a building experiences a power outage.
NO doubt, outdoor lighting with motion activation are fast becoming standard applications to be found in new commercial and high occupancy residential buildings, such as college dormitories. Most building codes require that they be installed in older buildings as well. It won’t be too long before everyone start using them because they are energy efficient and can potentially save you over 50% in electricity bills.
