LAP 140Â° Standalone PIR
I'm retro-fitting stand-alone pirs to LED lights as sick of replacing linear halogen bulbs. Bought two of these pirs so far - easy to fit, plenty of room for fixing cables. Too soon to be sure about reliability, hence four stars. Made mistake of buying some cheaper ones from another supplier - absolute junk, awkward to fit and didn't work from start. Spend a bit more and buy quality!

ideal for multiply lights
ideal if you want more low wattage lights in more spots a round area to be lite. better than trying to set up 3 or 4 PIRs not to interefere with each others sensors and ending up with a disco light show!!!

Pretty Good PIR
I was looking for a PIR with a longer range than typical. It seems that most only quote 12 metres for range, unless you want to pay a lot more for a specialist model. This one also quotes a range of 12 metres but I've found it reliable upto around 15-16 metres, mounted at a height of 3m. You compromise close range detection but I have another floodlight/PIR covering the more immediate area. Excellent value at Â£9.99.
The unit is spaced off the wall appropriately to allow cable access (one cable entry is provided, with another cable 'knockout' if required) but my only criticism is the rather tight angle that the cable has to turn through (especially if using 4 core circular flex) to get into the housing through the back. Side entry knockouts would be useful. Another useful feature missing is cable clamps, otherwise this would be 5 stars for features.
But overall definitely recommended and I would use this model again.
Tried not to comment on reliability as it's only been up for a few days but the site doesn't allow you not to answer so 3 stars for the sake of entering a figure... don't read anything negative ( or positive) into this 3 star rating !!
