Can you connect a Nordlux Sensor to other lamps?

No, you cannot as the sensor in the Nordlux lamp does not have an extra connection.

Can the sensor be adjusted?

It is only the Nordlux lamps where the sensor is equipped with adjustment buttons/screws that can be adjusted, which is stated in the accompanying instructions.

Does Nordlux have lamps where it is possible to set the sensor?

Yes, at the moment two of our lamps have that feature, Tin and Sidney, where you can adjust these setting manually:

1. Time; how long you want the light on
2. Light level; when the light should turn on in relation to the daylight
3. Sensitivity; when the sensor should activate in relation to the distance to the shape in movement.

All these things are further described in the technical descriptions in the manual based on these types of lamps, the other types of sensors have a preset parameter that is set automatically. It will also be stated in the lamp description under the product how this works.

If the sensor lamps is on constantly?

Try to turn the lamp on and off 2 times quickly. If this does not remedy the problem the sensor may be defective.

What sensor types are there? / How does a sensor lamp work?

There are several different sensor types, but the most commonly used sensor types in connection with lighting are either a so-called PIR sensor (Pyroelectric Infrared Sensor) or a Microwave sensor.

The first-mentioned sensor type senses when a warm object (human or animal) moves in the sensor’s area. When the sensor is activated the light will turn on for a period that is predetermined (set) or you can decide the interval / set how long you want the lamp to be turned on after the sensor has registered people or animals in the area.

The sensor’s area is stated on the user manual or on the packaging.

The microwave sensor sends out microwaves which are thrown back to the sensor (like an echo sounder) when they hit an object that is moving within a given range. When the waves are registered by the sensor the lamp turns on for a period that can also be set to a determined period of time.
