Cooper Lighting , the leading provider of high-quality lighting fixtures, introduces Precision Plus Doppler Radar™ Motion Activated Outdoor Security Floodlights, an innovative system that uses advanced technology to deliver a wider blanket of security coverage than most motion sensors on the market can provide.

Many of the motion sensor lights available today use only Passive Infrared (PIR) technology, which picks up side-to-side movement, but can fail to detect an intruder moving toward or away from a security sensor head.

Cooper’s Precision Plus Doppler Radar lighting uses Passive Infrared technology, but also adds sophisticated Doppler radar, featuring a 270-degree detection zone with three infrared sensors that can detect motion up to 90 feet away. This advanced outdoor lighting system provides more sweeping and reliable coverage—up to 50 percent more than many typical motion sensors—by activating the lights when either side-to-side or front-to-back motion is detected.

Precision Plus Doppler Radar delivers a more accurate and stable performance than standard sensors, using a precise microchip controller to analyze both the Doppler radar and Passive Infrared signals to determine if a light needs to be activated. The use of Doppler radar reduces false triggering of the lights because Doppler reacts to actual motion, rather than wind, rain and temperature changes. Other motion sensors may not detect a well-bundled burglar approaching a building on a cold night, but since Precision Plus Doppler Radar is less affected by extreme temperatures.

Precision Plus Doppler Radar has motion sensors that turn the lights on automatically when motion is detected, then turns them off after a pre-selected time delay of anywhere from one to 12 minutes. The system’s integral photo cell design saves energy by keeping the lights off during daylight hours. And the lights, which have adjustable “sensitivity” and “mode” settings, can be manually turned on by an inside light switch after dusk and will automatically reset at dawn.

The floodlights are available in white or bronze and can be installed as wall or eave mount applications. They are available at national and local hardware and home improvement stores with a MSRP from $64.99 to $74.99 depending on the model.

The Precision Plus Doppler Radar Motion Activated Outdoor Security Floodlights will be showcased at the 2010 National Hardware Show, May 4-6, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nevada, at booth # 3615.
