Faradite has introduced a watertight motion sensor for use in wet rooms, gardens and other environmentally challenged locations. The Motion Sensor 360 IP67 Volt Free is an IP67 rated volt free motion sensor, is available in white or black, and offers control inside and outside.

IP, or Ingress Protection, ratings provide a guide to the level of protection offered as defined in international standard EN 60529 (British BS EN 60529:1992, European IEC 60509:1989). IP67 is defined as ‘dust tight’ and is also protected against immersion in water for 30 minutes at depths of 150mm to 1000mm.

The unit is powered with 5-35V DC and provides a fully volt free output. Mounted at a height of 2.5m, it claims a 5 x 5 metre detection area. The sensor is fully compatible with control platforms, including Loxone, Crestron, Control4, Lutron and Rako.

The launch follows on from an all-black volt-free sensor, suited to home theatre applications, which debuted last year.

Faradite imagines a wide range of applications, including kitchens and bathrooms. Offering comprehensive control options, installers can create different lighting scenarios for different use cases, from full brightness to subdued ambience.

‘Homeowners love spending time in their kitchens, perhaps more than at any time in recent history. With the trend for high-quality, more ambitiously equipped kitchens increasing, why should automation options be any less ambitious? Our new sensor can cope with anything the modern kitchen can throw at it; grease, dust, and steam are no problem,’ it says.

‘Ask any speaker manufacturer and they will tell you one of the biggest growth sectors in recent years is the expansion of exterior audio systems. This is also true of exterior lighting control, which is more mature than exterior audio, but also growing in its sophistication and use. Another factor here is the strong trend amongst renovators and house builders to create a flowing connection between the exterior and interior of a home as owners move between the two like never before.’
