Benefits of Microwave Technology Motion Sensors

Microwave Technology sensors offer advantages over Infrared Technology sensors for outdoor and warehouse applications because they are NOT affected by ambient temperatures above 90ᵒF. Infrared sensors read temperature signatures as people cross activation zones near the sensor. When the ambient temperature is close to human body temperature, the sensor does not see motion. Many outdoor lighting projects in warmer climates require controls to work properly above 90ᵒF. Warehouses without air conditioning also experience these high operating temperatures.

In addition, the sensors can be used for dimming and light sensing for maximum energy savings. To read more about these sensors and their program features
