Wiser expands: Smart sensors for the intelligent home

Schneider Electric is once again expanding its portfolio of smart home products and can now present two new PIR sensors that, as something completely new, are suitable for installation in the well-known LK FUGA®-designrammer.

Schneider Electric’s new smart home system, Wiser, is now being expanded with two new smart products that make the home even more intelligent and automated.

LK FUGA® Wiser PIR with dimmer and LK FUGA® Wiser PIR with relay are both infrared motion sensors that can be used to automatically control the indoor lighting.

A PIR sensor (Passive Infrared Sensor) increases comfort and at the same time helps to save energy. The light turns on automatically when a person moves into the sensor’s field of view, and goes out again when he or she leaves the room. It is both smart, practical and environmentally friendly.

The sensors have a detection angle of 160⁰ horizontally and are intended for mounting at normal switch height. As something completely new, they are also specially designed for installation in the well-known LK FUGA design frames, so it will be possible to get a simple and stylish look.

Wiser expands: Smart sensors for the intelligent home

Dim or full lighting

Although the two PIR sensors look identical on the surface and offer almost the same functionality, there is a significant difference between them. As the name suggests, one model has a built-in dimmer, while the other has a built-in relay. In short, this means that the model with the dimmer is well suited for areas in the home where, for example, at night it is nice with a weak lighting, while the model with built-in relay is ideal for example in a hallway or a utility room where you want full lighting.

“The intelligent home only becomes really smart when you start fitting sensors that switch the light on and off automatically. It saves energy, but is also incredibly smart and practical. For example, let a sensor control the light at night when you go to the toilet or past the refrigerator, or let the sensor light up in the entrance hall or utility room when you come home with shopping and have difficulty reaching the socket on the wall. Once you get used to automated lighting control, you do not go back to the old analog switches, “says Martin Hannibal, Product Manager at Schneider Electric Denmark.

With or without Wiser gateway

Adjustment of the two new sensors is done via the Wiser app. Sensitivity, lux level and timer time are set here. Via automations, the dimmer can be programmed to switch on a given light level when motion is detected. It can be operated locally or be part of a correspondence function via push switches.

Short press acts as on / off, long press dampens either up or down. The dimmer can attenuate ohmic, inductive or capacitive load and be installed without ZERO conductor.

The dimmer works as a universal LED dimmer for LED loads 7-100VA (RC) 7-20VA (RL) and 14-200W resistive.

The relay on 10A can be operated locally or be part of a correspondence function via pressure switches.

Both models can be used without the Wiser gateway through the room control function.
