Standalone PIR detectors

Recommended Posts

Guest Alphonsox

I need to fit some external standalone 180 degree PIR detectors around the house -  Ideally black plastic, IP66 rated.

Any recommendations ? The Screwfix ones I was going to fit have been replaced with a very poorly reviewed version.

Hardwired with 3-core and earth (Sorry - Should have mentioned that)

Have used these before and they are pretty robust.

I did look at Steinel variants - they look far better than anything else but seem to be getting poor long term reliability reports (I checked Amazon.de which seems to have the most feedback)

Fair enough. Got a feeling my two standalone PIRs are Eagle brand and tbh they have lasted for years.

You won't go wrong with the spectra TBH, and a bit less obtrusive too. I prefer the others as they're a bit more directional but not much in it TBH.
