By definition, a ‘smart’ building is able to vary its state or action in response to varying situations. Philips Dynalite have a range of multifunction sensors that are an integral component for making a building ‘smart’.

Philips Dynalite sensors are fully networked devices that support multiple functions at the same time. This versatility and capability results in coordinated operation across the entire system, allowing every device on the network to respond to environmental changes and user requirements in real time.

All Dynalite sensors include motion and light level sensing to automatically detect occupancy and control lighting levels. These intelligent devices detect the slightest movement and are quick and easy to install, generating savings with minimum effort. Additionally, these sensors can communicate to the building’s HVAC system when rooms are unoccupied, cutting down on unnecessary heating and cooling from third-party systems.

Powerful tasking capabilities allow Dynalite sensors to modify their behavior between business hours and after-hours. Thanks to their network connectivity, they can coordinate multiple lighting groups in other areas when needed, such as lighting a path from an occupied workspace to the nearest exit at night.

This powerful combination of responsiveness and customisable functionality means that users experience safe, comfortable lighting wherever they are, often without ever needing to touch a control panel or interact directly with the system.

Sensor Range

Popular sensor in the Philips Dynalite range include:

DUS360CR

The Philips Dynalite DUS360CR is a recess mountable 360 degree multifunction sensor that combines motion detection (PIR), infrared remote control reception (IR) and ambient light level detection (PE) into one device in applications such as offices, lecture theaters and homes.

  • Motion detection feature – Detects the presence or absence of motion and adjusts lights accordingly.
  • Segmented click-up bezel – Surrounds the motion sensor element and enables a portion of the sensing field to be masked. This prevents nuisance detection from adjacent doorways or corridors.
  • Ambient light level regulation – In applications where it is critical to maintain precise light levels, the PE function reads ambient levels and adjusts artificial light accordingly.
  • Infrared receive capability – Manually adjust light levels using a hand-held remote control, via the inbuilt IR receive sensor of the DUS360CR.
  • Daylight harvesting mode – Delivers automatic energy savings.

DUS360CS

The Philips Dynalite DUS360CS is a surface mountable 360 degree multifunction sensor that combines motion detection (PIR), infrared remote control reception (IR) and ambient light level detection (PE) into one device in applications such as hotels, restaurants and homes.

  • Motion detection feature – Detects the presence or absence of motion and adjusts lights accordingly.
  • Segmented click-up bezel – Surrounds the motion sensor element and enables a portion of the sensing field to be masked. This prevents nuisance detection from adjacent doorways or corridors.
  • Ambient light level regulation – In applications where it is critical to maintain precise light levels, the PE function reads ambient levels and adjusts artificial light accordingly.
  • Infrared receive capability – Manually adjust light levels using a hand-held remote control, via the inbuilt IR receive sensor of the DUS360CS.
  • Daylight harvesting mode – Delivers automatic energy savings.

DUS90CS

The DUS90CS is wall or ceiling mountable multifunction sensor that combines motion detection (PIR), infrared remote control reception (IR) and ambient light level detection (PE) into one device for applications such as offices, lecture theaters and homes. Manufactured with an IP54 rating, the DUS90CS is resistant to dust and splashing, making it suitable for use in both indoor and sheltered outdoor areas.

  • Motion detection feature — Detects the presence or absence of motion and adjusts lights accordingly.
  • Ambient light level regulation — In applications where it is necessary to maintain even lighting, the PE function reads ambient levels and adjusts artificial light accordingly.
  • Infrared receive capability — Manually adjust light levels using a hand-held remote control, via the inbuilt IR receive sensor.
  • Daylight harvesting mode — Delivers automatic energy savings.
  • Multiple mounting options — The sensor has a 90 degree scan pattern with flexible angle adjustment and can be recessed or surface mounted on a wall or ceiling.
  • IP54 rating — Dust- and splash-resistant housing allows installation in a variety of indoor and outdoor applications.
