Motion Sensor Installation in Upper Darby

A Modern Way to Light Up Your Space

Whether you are interested in upgrading your home lighting or improving the look of your business location, Upper Darby electricians at Martella Electric can help with the installation of motion detector lights. An excellent option to improve both indoor and outdoor security is a well-placed motion-activated light. It can make the surrounding area more comfortable and pleasant. Moreover, the use of indoor motion lights can help you achieve dramatic savings while ensuring that light is available when you need it most.

Benefits of Motion Sensor Lights

With decades of experience, we have found that pairing motion sensors with various lighting treatments have a wide range of benefits. While many people typically find that motion sensor lights make any area more enjoyable, few would disagree with the other benefits that they offer.

Martella Electric’s motion sensor light fixtures have quite a few advantages, including:

  • Convenience: How many times have you struggled to find the light switch in a dimly lit room? With the installation of motion detector switches this struggle will be a thing of the past. Since most people don’t want to unnecessarily waste money, traditional lighting fixtures are turned off when not in use, but motion sensor switches will detect movement in an area and automatically activate a connected lighting fixture. So entering the kitchen with an armful of groceries or a dark area when taking out the trash will no longer be an inconvenient hassle with the use of a motion sensor switches.
  • Safety: Nobody can argue that fewer accidents occur in a well-lit area and motion sensitive switches make every area safer. Basements, garages, and utility rooms often have a variety of tripping hazards such as tools, buckets, and other household supplies. Strategically placed sensor switches will eliminate hazards and can easily make homes and business safer.
  • Security: Whether outdoors or indoors, security is the first benefit many think of when considering motion detector lights. Layout, shrubbery, and architectural features across a property create blind spots that intruders value and outdoor motion sensor lights will eliminate that threat. Inside, motion sensitive lighting can be used in a similar fashion to track visitors or alert you to the presence of someone else. Installing them on your property will definitely leave you feeling much more secure.

Common Placements of Motion Lights

With an unlimited number of options for the placement of motion lights, customers rely on our Upper Darby electricians’ knowledge and expertise to identify areas that will provide the best combination of security, safety, and convenience. Sensors are small devices that detect infrared energy and must be placed carefully to ensure the best possible field of vision while avoiding accidental activations. Furthermore, detectors can be placed individually to trigger lights in adjacent areas or be an integrated component with a motion detector light.

Some of the most popular locations include:

  • Entry ways: Areas adjacent to doors and windows are the most common locations for sensor lights. Not only do they help passersby see a potential intruder, but improved lighting helps occupants see burglars before a break-in occurs. The placement of outdoor motion lights adjacent to the garage offers a warning that someone may be in the area before opening the garage door.
  • Obscured areas: Trees, plants, and architectural features around a building offer made-to-order hiding places for burglars, so the proper placement of outdoor motion detectors can provide an advanced warning that an intruder may be on the property. At Martella Electric, we frequently find that the placement of one or two motion sensors in strategic areas on the property can effectively remove these hiding places.
  • Driveways and walkways: Among the most common approaches to a property, driveways and walkways are excellent locations for motion detector lights. Through the use of wireless or wired detectors, property owners can easily detect those approaching the property from both a security and safety perspective. As a result, outside pathways are a popular location for the placement of outdoor motion sensor fixtures.
