Luminaires for solar panels and with motion sensor

The principle of solar powered garden lamps

Such lamps can have a wide variety of size and shape, but they will have a design design the same. At the top of the luminaire, where the most daylight hits, are a thin film covering the surface of the solar cell. Incoming light, it converts to electrical energy, which accumulates by the battery throughout the light day, even if it was cloudy. Once it becomes dark, the lamp is switched on — from the voltage supplied by the battery, the LED lamp is lit up, mounted under the protective transparent plate.

Garden and summer lamps, equipped with motion sensors, can also perform a security function, lighting up when any person appears in the field of their action.

Advantages of solar powered lamps


possibilities and benefits of using LED lights powered by sunlight, in garden and summer areas are obvious. Firstly, it is free electricity, secondly, such lanterns do not require cable – you do not need to dig the ground and lay there wires, thirdly, you can install such a lantern in any, even the most difficult place to reach, frequent additional maintenance and repair it does not need.

Night lighting and illumination of the cottage house also melt the opportunity to bring to life the most fantastic design solutions that will help to completely transform the plot at night, emphasize the architectural features of the buildings, make the landscape surrounding them more expressive. If you competently place LED lights of different sizes and shapes on the territory of the plot and around the walls of the cottage house, in the evening you can admire no less magnificent views than those that please your eye in daytime.

But manufacturers of solar-powered fixtures are constantly working to refine their design to expand functionality while saving accumulated electric charge. They are equipped not only with sensor devices that respond to the amount of incoming light, but also with infrared motion sensors.

How motion sensor works The motion

sensor uses electronics that respond to infrared radiation constantly emitted by the human body. Once such a device fixes an object emitting heat, it transmits a signal to the instrument that is connected to it, in this case, to the lamp. The lamp is switched on by the signal from the motion sensor and is switched off after the signal that there is no object emitting infrared radiation is received. LED lamps, which are much cheaper than xenon, and do not require a large amount of electrical power, are not better suited for use along with motion sensors, which significantly increase their energy – saving characteristics.$

Garden and summer lamps, equipped with motion sensors, can also perform a security function, lighting up when any person appears in the field of their action.

Lighting systems on LED lamps, with built-in motion sensors and powered by solar panels are the best option for street lighting on summer houses and garden areas in places where no permanent illumination is required.$ They can equip a parking lot, paths leading to outbuildings or utility rooms, paths laid between vegetable gardens. Several lamps can be combined into such lighting systems, which can be triggered together or switched on sequentially.

LED lamps are switched on instantly, resistant to vibrations and fluctuations in temperature and humidity.

How to choose a lamp with a motion sensor

If you want to install on a country plot, the choice of them is wide enough, in such large cities, like Moscow, it will be possible to purchase them in any store, and in remote areas it is possible to order them on the Internet, having studied the feedback of consumers on the forums. Note the models that have the solar panel made by a separate module, allowing it to be installed in the most illuminated location, and the light fixture itself where necessary.

In addition, given that these devices are unmaintainable, it is necessary to choose a lamp from known, proven manufacturers, which will be reliable and will not break in a month. The quality of manufacture can be evidenced even by packaging — it must be specified specifications: the power of LED lamps, their quantity, the type of pressure sensor and battery, its rated capacity. It is better to choose a lamp with a nickel-metal battery, it is more expensive than nickel-cadmium, but economically more profitable because it will last longer and can provide more power.
