What would I use this floodlight for?
This security light detects motion over a wide 180° range and automatically lights when movement is detected. Not only is this useful as a deterrent for any potential intruder, it can also serve to guide you to your door when positioned correctly. The IP44 rating makes it suitable for outdoor use. The floodlight comes supplied with a standard 400W halogen bulb. However, this floodlight is also able to to run off an energy-saving bulb up to 24W, saving you valuable electricity.

Why would I buy this instead of a standard floodlight?
Standard floodlights are manually switched on or off, whereas a light with a built-in passive infrared sensor (PIR) provides greater convenience and security. In addition, the duration of time for which the light remains on once activated is widely adjustable up to six minutes, providing the ultimate in flexibility. The PIR will detect motion up to 12m away.

What can I expect from the floodlight?
The 400W floodlight provides up to 9,200 lumens of white light, bright enough light to use in commercial and residential premises. This floodlight adds to the security of your home giving you a greater peace of mind knowing you have a deterrent in place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bright light Good level of light,easy to fit,good price and very speedy delivery.

just been told the PIR sensitivity can not be adjusted but it looks as if there are 3 controls under the PIR which I'm guessing one of these is for?

Asked by: colinthecat
looking at the specifications we have it has not got this ability but if it has 3 dials please try adjusting it to see what result you get.
