Movement Sensor (PIR) LED Flood Lights
Movement sensor PIR LED flood lights are a cost effective alternative to halogen PIR lamps, providing ultimate security to any home or business but with huge money savings. The reason for this is that the energy used in reduced by up to 80%, meaning lower running costs are experienced as a result. These lights have a lamp life of up to 30,000 hours and IP65 rating, making them a reliable outdoors lighting solution, resistant to rain and moisture.
LED Movement Sensor (PIR) Flood Lights Continued
These motion sensor PIR LED floodlights are activated when the PIR sensor detects movement within its range. This sensor can be adjusted so that the light turns off after whichever length of time you desire, once the movement that has been detected has gone. These movement sensor PIR LED flood lights are one of the most cost effective and energy efficient security solutions on the market.
Leading UK lighting retailer BLT Direct is urging the UK to make the switch to LED bulbs as part of this push, and has set out a list of 10 reasons why every Brit should get on-board the LED lighting bandwagon...Read More »

The benefit of using LEDs to light your home, office or business is that LEDs will be able to provide you with a great level of efficiency. Compared to traditional Incandescent and halogen light bulbs, LED lighting is several times more efficient. A…Read More »
As well as a high level of efficiency, LED light bulbs will be able to provide you with a fantastic lamp life. LED Light Bulbs will be able to offer you an extended lamp life which make them even greater value for the 'green' consumer who is looking …Read More »
LED (Light Emitting Diode) Light Bulbs will be able to offer you with a superb level of brightness. LED Light Bulb technology has developed over time so that a LED Light Bulb will be able to offer you an equivalent level of brightness to alternative …Read More »
LED Light Bulbs are described as being 'instant on', meaning that they will reach full brightness as soon as they are turned on. One of the major strengths of using LED technology to illuminate your environment is that they will be able to provide yo…Read More »
Replacing wattage as the standard unit of brightness, Lumens is a new measure introduced with the arrival of energy saving and LED Light Bulbs. This was due to these types of bulbs being able to emit the same amount of light as conventional equivalents, with a greatly reduced power consumption.
Kelvin is a term used to describe the colour temperature, often displayed as just the letter K. Some common colour temperatures are 2700K, 3000K and 6500K, which relate to Very Warm White, Warm White and Daylight Light Bulbs.
The IP, or Ingress Protection rating of a lighting product describes how well protected it is against dust, accidental contact and water. This is usually displayed as the letters IP followed by 2 digits, the first (ranging from 0-6) denoting the contact and dust protection, and the second (ranging from 0-8) describing the water protection.
An initialism for Surface Mounted Diode, SMD refers to mounted LED chips on PCB (Printed Circuit Board). Surface Mounted LED's were one of the first iterations of LED Light Bulbs.
Colour temperature, sometimes refered to as CCT (correlated colour temperature), is simply a method of describing the colour characteristics of a light bulb. Colour temperatures range from low (warm/yellowish) type colours all the way up to high (white/bluish) light.
Colour temperature is measured in "Kelvin" which is explained in more detail below. More information can be found on our colour temperatures example page.
Kilowatt is simply the measure of 1000 watts. When working out savings on our LED and Energy Saving products we refer to kWh which is the typical billing unit used by utility companies in the UK.
An example of kWh would be if a 50w lamp operated for 20 hours (50w x 20 hours) it would consume 1000 watts, this would equate to one kilowatt-hour.
Brightness is the term used to describe the effect of luminance on an observer. The maximum brightness is said to be found in Pure White whilst the minimum is expected to be found in Pure Black.
Glare is a term used to describe the visual impairment caused by excessive brightness. Glare can be divided into discomfort glare and disability glare. Discomfort Glare is when a light source in the field of view causes an instinctive need to look away due to overall illumination being too bright. Disability glare is where a light source outside of the field of view causes reduced visibility inside the field of view.
Instant Start is the term used to describe the instantaneous ignition of a light bulb. The term can be used in reference to Control Gear and LED Light Bulbs.
