LED construction lamp with or without a movement sensor?

LED construction lamp with or without a movement sensor?

What types of construction lamps are there?

Nowadays there are many different types of construction lamps, but the most used lamp is the LED construction lamp. In addition, you have the not so energy -efficient halogen construction lamp. These lamps become very warm and use up to 80% more energy compared to LED construction lamps. Another advantage of LED construction lamps are the different light colors that can be chosen, so that there is an LED construction lamp for each application.

What does a movement insensor do?

Simply put, this sensor detects movement. This sensor does this on the basis of a number of values ​​that the user can set. This allows you to decide for yourself how long the light should stay on and how sensitive the sensor must be to movements.

The following properties are adjustable:


Light sensitivity

You can set the light sensitivity to the sensor by means of a potentiometer. This allows you to determine how dark it should be before the LED construction lamp comes on. Of course it makes little sense if the lamp starts during the day.

Burning time

This setting determines how long the LED construction lamp stays after the sensor has detected the last movement. This timer will run again when there is movement.


This setting is also very useful! Imagine that there are bushes or trees in sight of the sensor or you have pets that can run in front of the sensor. Then you can set the sensitivity of the sensor, so that the lamp does not jump on with every small movement.

DetectionConstruction lamp with sensor

You can turn the sensor and tilt so that you can always determine the perfect detection direction.
Even if your LED construction lamp shines to the left, you can detect movement on the right by aiming the sensor to the right.

Advantages and disadvantages of the LED construction lamp with sensor

Everything has its advantages and disadvantages, including the LED construction lamp with sensor. We are happy to list this for you:


  • The LED construction lamp only burns if movement is detected.
  • Wide adjustable including sensitivity, burning time and calling moment.
  • LED construction lamps are much more economical than halogen construction lamps.


  • After hanging the LED construction lamp, first set for use.
  • Only burns when moving within detection range of the sensor.

Which LED construction lamp is suitable for me?

That depends entirely on your situation and personal preferences. Do you need continuous light for your terrain? Then a construction lamp without a sensor is a good option. If you want light that only comes on when you enter the site/garden, an LED spotlight with sensor is again very handy and energy -saving.
