Hi

Can anyone recommend a good quality commercial outdoor PIR sensor for controlling lighting etc there are a lot of cheap ones on the market which don't last very long , I would rather pay good money for a more robust device so I don't have to keep going back to them.

Regards

Never had problems with Steinel kit - not the cheapest but I've not had a failure.

Steinel as well

One property with 8 of them fitted 7years ago. One failure, and that one was the most exposed weather-and-knock wise.

I use BEG-Luxomat, they're great to install and you can get a programming remote for them so you dont have to climb ladders.

I'd use steinel otherwise

Whatever you do, don't install Sector ones - in my experience they're nothing but trouble!!

Just fitted some CEF challenger ones at a job, they seemed to be very well made and worked well.

Agree that Steinel are good, some thought has been put into design. I also use Timeguard but oldest I have put in is about 2yrs ago without any problems, they are plug in so if there are any problems you can swap without having to rewire..
