inline 12v nighttime motion sensor switch
Inline 12V Nighttime Motion Sensor Switch
- Designed for low/no light
- Water resistant
- Easy to install
Any of Elemental LED’s 12V DC LED lighting products can be turned into LED motion sensor lights with these 12V Inline Infrared LED Sensors. The Inline Nighttime Motion Sensor Switch is an automatic movement sensor switch that is activated by motion in dark or very low light spaces. Using infrared detection technology, it is triggered by movement: the infrared detection unit turns on the your low voltage light when someone is in range; when there is no movement, the lamp will turn off automatically after 20 seconds without any motion. This water-resistant sensor is perfect for outdoor or indoor use, whether in conjunction with kitchen lights, cabinet lighting, or for an LED motion sensor light in the basement or garage. It can be installed with deck or patio lighting, and even garden and landscape lights.
Simply plug either easy-to-use LED Motion Sensor switch into your 12V adapter at one end and your lighting source at the other, whether it’s strip lighting, under cabinet LED lighting or puck lights. The Inline 12V Motion Sensor is housed in sturdy white plastic that is water-resistant.
Just a Switch

I was hoping for an adjustable time setting. Great for turning on lights however movement is required to keep the switch from turning off the lights. A delay off setting would better meet my needs.

Can I get a little more detail about how this switch operates? for example, I assume it sits in between the transformer and the light - can you control the light separately, essentially overriding this switch? It does indicate that the switch can be used as an on/off, but how?

You're right, the switch is connected between the 12V DC power source and the LED light. The motion switch can be connected directly to our Inline On/Off Switch, which also has DC plugs, so that the on/off switch turns both the motion switch and the light on or off. While the motion switch can't be manually switched on and off, it is a kind of hands-free on/off switch.
I was thinking of using the motion switch for stair lighting, can you put a motion sensor at each end? If not do you have any ideas?
