My sensors are easily tripped by wind blowing through (well trimmed) rose bushes, along the inside of a 1.8m x 8m brick wall. Do I need to change to a "pet tolerant" PIR sensor or even an infrared light beam? (Infrareds I have seen do not run on 240V.)

Asked by: Graham
As with all motion detection the item is doing exactly what it is supposed to do . You could try changing any sensitivity setting if applicable with the unit.

Could I use 2 of these sensors on one light, enabling activation from 2 different areas?

Asked by: Richie W
You could run the signal wires from the sensors back to a relay then light the lights from a normally open contact on the relay. Code: N13AW

As Technical Support Advisors we cannot offer full advice on mains electrical installations, this job would be best left down to the professionals, if you are at all unsure we would strongly recommend consulting a qualified electrician for help and support or to complete the job for you.
