Hi everyone and @EricL,
So we have a ceiling light socket under the eave, and we want to install something like this:
But preferably the fixture can allow motion detection instead of using on/off switch mechanism, which help prevent the occupants from leaving the light on overnight unintentionally.. (There are a lot of bugs and flies at night in our suburb..)
So whoever enter the veranda , getting keys from his pockets in front of the entrance door, the ceiling light over his head can turn on automatically!
Is that even possible? It seems that we need to find a bunker light / outdoor ceiling light with motion detection function for us to enable first + an electrician to remove the light switch on the wall, so everyone can't use the switch to turn on the light😊
Thank you for any ideas / product recommendation..!
Thank you so much for sharing your question about exterior ceiling lighting under the eave.
There is a bunker light with a motion sensor, it is the Arlec D.I.Y. Oyster Sensor Light. It uses standard bulb fittings so you can put in an LED bulb. If your current light outside has a switch inside the house, you can turn it off at night so that it will not turn on and of by accident. I also recommend Arlec Danby LED Bunker With Security Sensor. This already has the LED in it and there is no need to buy a bulb.
I recommend engaging the services of a registered electrician so that your light is properly installed. Please keep us updated, we look forward to seeing your bunker light installed.
If you need more advice or information, please let us know.
Hi @EricL , we installed Arlec D.I.Y. Oyster Sensor Light but we made a careless mistake by buying the wrong type of light bulb
Then we went through the instruction which says it needs a "B22 base" light bulb.
That's means as long as we find a "B22 base" , it will be fine?
We don't want to buy a B22 base and still end up not being able to fit that in
Could U recommend us any led light bulbs sold by Bunnings that can be used for Arlec D.I.Y. Oyster Sensor Light?
Thank you very much for any help
