Z-Wave motion sensor for staircase


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


I am thinking of automating staircase lights in the house. The scenario is pretty straightforward - switch on the staircase light when someone starts to go up or down. Normally z-wave motion sensors are aimed at covering the highest possible angle, so I would rather avoid false activations when people are just passing the staircase by, but not using.


How do you normally solve these kind of issues? Are there special low range\fencing motion sensors? Is it made through lowering sensitivity of a standard motion sensor? Or maybe artificially narrowing the sensor angle by a tube?


Thank you!

I have on bottom and top a small pir mounted at the side of the stair.

Sometimes stair light will switch on if you are to close passing the bottom step.
