Motion Sensor for Turning on and Off Your LED Projects
Share this Product
Turn your LEDs on with Motion! Our motion sensor takes 3 volt - 12 volt input and can run up to 30 LEDs.
In tests, the round white sensor "ball" can detect motion up to 2 or even 3 feet away. The sensor keeps the lights on for up to 15 seconds if it does not detect motion. We found just being near the sensor was enough to keep the lights on until we walked away.
This is a great way to have your projects light up when you walk up to them or even walk by! And have them turn off automatically when you leave.
Dimensions: The sensor is
- 15mm Diameter
- 14mm High
There are 4 wires already attached to the motion sensor. 2 input wires to connect to your chosen power supply, and 2 wires to go out to your LEDs.
The longer wires on the Motion Sensor connect to the wires on your power supply. The shorter wires on the motion sensor connect to all of your LED wires. You can of course cut any of the wires, just remember the orientation from power to the sensor, from the sensor to your LEDs.
Why have a switch on the battery if the motion sensor is a switch?
The white switch is on/off so if it is left in the on-state it will not affect the motion sensing. The motion sensor will always turn on with motion. So the white on/off switch is a more permanent way to turn off your project if you need it.
