FAQ

1. What Are LED Motion Sensor Flood Lights?

LED flood lights with sensors are broad-beamed  LED-based high power lights with a motion detector.  They are mostly used for security purposes.

Motion sensor flood lights can provide powerful light like any other floodlight. But their working mechanism is a bit different.

Unlike any other floodlight.  They are turned on at night. But they do not emit light until they detect a movement.

This is possible because motion flood lights are equipped with a powerful motion sensor. These sensors can detect any kind of motion or movement.

As a result, these motion sensors help the light to turn on automatically when it detects a movement.

Moreover, motion sensor flood lights provide high-intensity light. So, they can easily scare off any perpetrator.

2. What Are The Pros Of Motion Detector Flood Lights?

LED flood lights with sensors have a tremendous amount of advantages.  We will find out more of its advantages all over this article.

But for now, here are a few notable advantages

1. Powerful Motion Sensor: LED motion sensor flood lights are equipped with a high-quality motion sensor. As a result, they can detect even smaller movements.

Moreover, the high efficiency and low heat of LED  flood lights make these sensors even more effective. So, with LED flood lights with sensors there is little or no chance of false alarms.

2. Long Lifespan: LED motion sensor flood lights have a comparatively high lifespan than any other flood lights.

Because normal flood lights stay around 15000 hours. On the other hand, LED motion sensor flood lights have a lifetime of 50000 hours. That’s almost 3.5 times more.

So, you don’t need to worry about lifespan with motion sensor flood lights.

3. Wide Beam Angle: Motion sensor flood lights have a beam angle of 90-120 degrees.

So, they can cover a large area. As a result, you don’t need multiple lights to cover a particular place.

4. High CRI Light: LED motion sensor flood lights have a CRI of 80+. So, the quality of light is comparatively better.

As a result, you can get daylight or natural light like bright light. So, they are good for your eyes too.

5. Cost-effective: We all know how efficient LED lights are. It is true for LED flood lights with sensors too. They consume 50-70% less energy than other motion sensor flood lights.

So, you can save a lot of money on electric bills.

6. ECO-friendly Light: LED motion sensor flood lights do not emit any injurious rays UV or IR rays. So, it’s good for your eyes.

Moreover, LED motion sensor flood lights don’t contain any toxic material like mercury vapor.

So, they are easily recyclable.

3. What Are The Cons Of Motion Detector Flood Lights?

Motion detector flood lights are not completely perfect. They have a few minor flaws too. Here are the cons of LED motion sensor flood lights

  • Unlike other LED lights the LED driver of motion flood light cannot survive in extreme temperatures. So, you cannot use LED motion sensor flood lights in an extremely hot environment.
  • Motion detector flood lights emit blue light and IR radiation for IR-based lights. Blue lights can cause harm to our eyes. So, it’s suggested not to look at them directly.
  • LED motion sensor flood lights are 3-5 times more expensive than its competitors. But the installation and maintenance cost is much less than its competitors.
  • LED motion sensor lights cannot surpass 200W. So, they cannot be used in places where extremely high light is needed.
  • Some cheap IR-based motion sensor flood lights can cause false alarms rapidly.

4. What Are The Most Suitable Places For LED Motion Sensor Flood Lights?

Motion sensor flood lights are mainly used for security purposes. But they can be used for versatile purposes too. Here are a few most suitable use-case of motion flood light

  • Lawns: The most suitable place for LED motion sensor flood lights can be your lawn or yard.

Because according to the crime science journal home break-ins have significantly risen during this pandemic situation.

So, a motion flood light can add an extra layer of security to your home. Moreover, they work automatically. As a result, you can scare away any perpetrator without even doing anything.

  • Offices: Motion flood lights can scale up your office security too. Because for big offices it’s not possible to keep guards everywhere.

But if you use a motion sensor flood light then you can decrease the number of guards. Moreover, with motion sensor flood lights, guards will get alert too when someone tries to break in.

That way your garden will be safe and no one is harming any animal too.

These are just a few mentions. You can use a motion detector flood light almost anywhere you want.

5. What Is The Lumen Efficiency Of Motion Flood Lights?

The lumen efficiency of a motion flood light completely depends on its manufacturer.

As a result, different brands have different lumen efficiency for flood lights.

But normally, the lumen efficiency of a motion flood light is around 120-130 lm per watt.

However, some manufacturers like VST produce LED motion sensor flood lights that have a maximum lumen efficiency of 150 lm per watt!

Moreover, you can also customize your motion sensor flood light from them.

It’s always better to buy a flood light with the most lumen efficiency. Because they are more efficient and cost you less electric bills to produce more light.

6. How Much Electricity Does A Motion Detector Flood Light Consume?

The electricity consumption of a motion detector flood light also depends on the manufacturer and the particular model.

Normally the electricity consumption of a  LED motion flood light can be from 10w to 200w.

However, some manufacturers like VST can produce flood lights that are 1200w!

But normally you don’t need that much powerful motion sensor flood light. You can just count how much area you need to cover from this light. Then buy accordingly.

For example, if we take a 130 lumen/watt flood light for counting. Then a 30w LED motion floodlight can produce around 3900 lumens. That is enough for 20×20 square meters of space.

Now, you can count yours and buy accordingly.

7. Can Motion Activated Flood Lights Cause A Fire?

No, a LED motion activated flood light can not cause a fire.

Normally flood lights cause fire by overheating. But it can not be possible in the case of LED motion sensor flood lights.

Because LED flood lights with sensors carry a LED driver. LED drivers are heat-sensitive. They can not operate or get damaged in an overheated place. As a result with LED flood lights with sensors, there is no chance of causing a fire by overheating.

Moreover, helium or fluorescent-based flood lights carry gas and they are in a vacuum. In some cases, these vacuum gases start a spark and cause a fire.

But LED  motion flood light contains no vacuum or gas. They use safe circuits too. So, there is no chance of a spark.

As a result, there is no chance of causing a fire with LED motion activated flood light. There is no reported case either.

8. Are Outdoor Motion Sensor Flood Lights Waterproof?

Yes, most of the outdoor motion sensor flood lights are waterproof.

But the waterproof rating can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. Normally, most manufacturers provide IP65 dust and water protection.

IP65 is good for both rain and dust. However, IP65 is not powerful enough for security lights.

That’s why reputed manufacturers like VST provide IP66 protection for motion sensor flood lights.

IP66 rating is great for security equipment. Because they have a rugged design. So, they can survive from a significantly higher level of pressurized water spray, from larger nozzles at higher kPa ratings.

As a result, no kind of water or dust can enter inside and harm the components of motion sensor flood lights.

Moreover, IP65 or IP66 rated devices are safe from moisture too.  Most outdoor electric devices are damaged by moisture.

So, you can use LED flood lights with sensor without worrying about water.

9. Is There Any Maintenance Cost For Outdoor Motion Sensor Flood Lights?

No, there is no maintenance cost for LED motion sensor flood lights.

Traditional flood lights need checking or maintenance after every few days. Because they depend on halogen gas or mercury vapor. The lighting part is fully vacuum too.

So, if they are not maintained properly, they get damaged or sometimes cause fire accidents.

On the other hand, LED motion detector flood lights do not depend on any gas or vacuum to produce light. They depend on LED circuits and drivers. These components can survive years without any maintenance. They are water and dustproof too.

So, they do not require any kind of work or care after installation.

Moreover, the installation charge is almost 5 times less than any halogen or fluorescent based motion flood light.

10. Can You Use Motion Activated Flood Light In An Icy Place?

Yes, you can use LED motion activated flood lights in an icy place.

One of the plus points of LED flood lights with sensor is that they can survive in freezing temperatures.

Normally, most of the LED motion sensor flood lights can survive up to -20 degrees celsius. However, some brands like VST produce motion flood lights that can survive at -35 degrees celsius!

On the other hand, other traditional lights can not survive in extremely cold temperatures. Because they use glass to create the vacuum and glass breaks in these extreme temperatures.

11. What Certifications Should You Look For In LED Motion Flood Light?

LED motion sensor flood lights are completely safe.

However, looking for safety certificates on electronic products is always a good decision.

Globally the safety of any electric device is certified by UL standards. So, please check if your motion flood light follows UL standards.

Moreover, lighting has a big impact on your eyes and health. So, try to avoid lights that contain hazardous elements.

One easy way to find out if a light contains any toxic substance is by looking for CE and RoHS certificates. Because they test and certify if a product contains any hazardous substance.

So, please be sure your motion detector flood lights have  CE and RoHS certification.

Lastly, check if your outdoor motion sensor flood lights have any IP rating or not. Never by an outdoor motion sensor flood light without IP rating.

12. What Are The Suitable Environments For LED Flood Lights With Sensor?

LED flood lights with sensors are good for any environment.

Because generally LED motion sensor flood lights can work from 40 degrees celsius to -20 degrees celsius temperature. Moreover, VST produces the best outdoor motion sensor flood lights. They can survive up to 50 degrees and as less as -35 degrees temperature.

However, there is a catch. There are 2 types of motion sensors used in motion flood lights.

  1. PIR or Passive Infrared Sensor
  2. Microwave Motion detector

Between these 2 sensors, the microwave sensor emits microwave radiation and receives microwave signals. That’s how they detect movement. They can cover 360 degrees and perform better overall.

But microwave sensors are too sensitive. So, in case of an icefall or rain, they provide too many false alarms.

On the other hand, PIR sensors depend on heat signals to detect movement and it’s easy to detect heat in rain or ice. As a result, they can provide more accurate alarms in a rainy or icy environment.

So, if you live in a rainy or icy place it’s better to choose the PIR-based motion sensor flood lights. Otherwise, you can choose microwave sensor motion flood lights.

13. What Is The Beam Angle Of A Motion Flood Light?

The Beam angle of a motion flood light completely depends on its manufacturer or the particular model.

However, the beam angle of a motion detector flood light is between 30 to 120 degrees.

Beam angle is really important for motion flood lights. Because the beam angle will decide how narrow or wide the light beam will be.

A higher beam angle indicates a wider spread of light and therefore more area coverage. LED flood lights with sensors have a maximum beam angle of 120⁰ and a minimum of 30⁰ beam angle.

Here, 120⁰ beam angle means the light can cover a vast region. Normally, 120⁰ beam motion flood lights are used in wide areas such as farmland, big lawns.

On the other hand, a smaller beam angle like 30⁰ can focus on a particular region. As a result, they are mostly used in office entrances, home entrances, yards.

Moreover, companies like VST provide a variety of beam angles like 10/30/25/45/60/90/120/130°.

So, you can choose a suitable beam angle according to your needs.

14. Do You Need Photocells For LED Motion Sensor Flood Lights?

Well, it’s not mandatory to have a photocell for LED motion sensor flood lights.

But having a photocell can save you the hassle of turning off the light.  LED flood lights with sensors with photocells are really efficient and they can increase the lifespan too.

Photocells are light-dependent registers. They automatically switch off motion flood lights when they detect daylight. So, your motion activated flood lights become more automated.

Furthermore, it’s a common mistake to turn on motion detector flood lights during daytime. Because of this mistake, your electricity bills increase and the lifespan of the light decreases too.
