NEW PRODUCT: Motion Sensor 360 - Pinhole - Volt Free

Faradite motion sensors are lauded around the world for being some of the smallest and most discreet sensors available for the custom installer. Well, we have just set a new standard for discreet motion sensors.


The latest addition to the Motion Sensor 360 range is the so called Pinhole sensor. This new sensor is designed to reduce the visible element of the motion sensor to just 15mm diameter.

The pinhole sensor is your secret weapon for delivering wow-factor automation in locations where large, bulky motion sensors won’t do. For example, the Pinhole sensor can be installed in bespoke joinery to provide precise, ultra targeted automation in:

Staircases: rear mount the Pinhole sensor behind staircase joinery at the top and bottom of staircases to trigger the LED staircase lights as soon as the user approaches the stairs.

Under bed: create ultra targeted motion detection that triggers some subtle under bed lighting as soon as users swing their feet off the edge of the bed. The Pinhole sensor can be mounted in the bed frame or bed side table to ensure minimal impact on the room aesthetic.

Drink cupboards: get creative with a ‘drink time’ light scene that is triggered from a Pinhole sensor installed in cabinet joinery directly above the drinks collection.

Wall mounted plates: If the project demands that ceiling mounted sensor are not going to be an option, why not use the Pinhole sensor to provide the room automation from behind custom made wall plates mounted in back boxes around the room.

There is no end to the amount of ultra discreet automation ideas that the Motion Sensor 360 Pinhole - Volt Free (dry contact) can allow the custom installer to deliver. Due to the almost impossibly small dimensions of the sensor, the sensor is virtually invisible when installed.

Installing the Pinhole sensor requires rear access to the mounting surface (max thickness 5mm). Once the 15mm hole has been drilled in the installation surface, rear mount the sensor using the 3M VHB tape and use the locking nut to tighten against this to secure the unit. Terminate the wiring into the removable push fit connect block and finalise the installation.
