Motion detectors 

Infrared or high-frequency – with STEINEL Professional, intelligence is built in as standard

Our range of motion detectors covers the entire spectrum of demand in professional applications: versatile and system-based – cleverly designed and practical to use.

Technology of the next generation

Compromising on nothing, we have developed our motion detectors for professional needs. Innovative technologies, such as the multi-lens and multi-sensor technology as well as the astonishingly high number of switching zones and detection levels provide maximum accuracy to ensure precision coverage. Using infrared or high-frequency sensors, our highly advanced sensor technology reliably detects movements anywhere in the detection zone.

Professionality is a matter of detail

Our motion detectors benefit from unique features:

  • highly advanced evaluation software
  • optical systems computed, designed and produced in-house
  • high-quality, long-life electronics
  • high-quality components for professional applications

100 % made by STEINEL Professional.

100 % German Quality – made in Europe.

Motion and Presence Detectors

The chief difference between motion and presence detectors lies in their detection properties and areas of use. The particular situation determines which technology is used where.

Dynamic means effective: Motion detectors

Motion detectors respond to walking movements. They perceive these in the selected detection zone and respond to them: this means light is switched 'ON' when a movement is detected once ambient light levels fall below a preselected threshold. Light switches 'OFF again after the period you set. Their use is recommended for detecting moving objects outdoors or in thoroughfares indoors.


High-resolution and sensitive: Presence detectors

Presence detectors respond to the tiniest movements using extremely highresolution, precision sensor technology. This is important indoors, particularly in conjunction with sedentary activities (offi ces for desk work, classrooms etc.) as well as for specifi c lighting tasks, such as in sports halls, changing rooms, corridors and storage areas. The light sensors continuously measure ambient light and constantly compare it with the preselected level. Light is switched on when ambient light falls below a specifi c threshold while people are present. If it's bright enough, light is automatically switched off even if people are in the room.

Precision squared

The detection zones of our IRpresence detectors are not round but square. This is not only far more precise and practical but also better to plan – there are no overlaps and no areas omitted. In addition to this, the square detection zones provided by STEINEL Professional presence detectors are precision-scalable.
