Introducing the TimeGuard ZV810 Motion Sensor PIR Light Switch, energy saving device

The Timeguard ZV810 motion sensor PIR switch detects the PIR body heat motion and automatically switches the light ON, turning it OFF again after a period of time that is adjustable from 6 seconds to 12 minutes. The TimeGuard ZV810 automatic light switch can be installed at various heights from 0.8M to 1.2M to detect a zone up to 8M in range over a 180º angle. It is recommended that you use the ZV810 motion sensor PIR light switch from Timeguard for indoor use only like the hallways, the dining room, the basement, the utility rooms and the garages, etc.

This automatic light switch can be used to replace existing one way or two way light switches. Since the Timeguard ZV810 PIR switch is sensitive to temperature changes, please avoid mounting directly above heat sources or exposed to direct sunlight. Also, avoid mounting the motion sensor switch where it can come into contact with water or rain – this is not a High IP rated device. For best results mount the Timeguard ZV810 motion sensor PIR light switch to detect objects moving across it.

Note: this PIR switch cannot be used with dimmer or other electronic switches in two way switching systems or replace an intermediate switch in three or more way switching systems. Also, additional work may be necessary in pendant locations.

In order to avoid nuisance triggering – your sensor switch may be activated by large animals, lights, reflective surfaces, heat sources or movements of objects – the following guidelines will definitely help you:

  • Do not aim the sensor towards any light sources.
  • Avoid mounting the sensor near heat sources, such as heating vents, air conditioners, dryer vents or lights.
  • Avoid directing the sensor toward areas or whose surfaces are highly reflective or are subject to rapid temperature change, such as pools.

  1. Sounds a great gadget, but I don’t understand how it can also be used as a normal on-off switch? The picture shows the sensor but no on-off switch that I can see – or is the manual on-off function only available if the front cover is left open to get at what looks like a small sliding switch?
