Stellus CONTESA WL S - Stainless Steel Wall Light with PIR Motion Sensor
The Contesa stainless steel wall light with PIR (passive infra red) motion sensor is a contemporary take on a traditional style lantern with added security. Made from stainless steel, including external screws, this outdoor wall light should not rust and is designed to last. The Contesa tapered wall lantern has 6 glass faces, very similar to it's sister fitting, the Hexa. Both designs are very versatile and will look great in any outdoor setting.
The built in PIR automatically switches on the lantern when movement is detected at dark. PIR motion sensor wall lights are a great energy saver, only turning on when triggered and when light is required. An in-built sensor ensures the motion sensor Contesa can only be triggered with movement during darkness, thus wasting no energy during the daytime when additional light is not required. They are also ideal for added security when properties are left unoccupied during holidays as any potential intruders would cause the light to turn on, exposing them in the darkness. The Sensor is fully adjustable, with two simple dials. 'TIME' increases / decreases the length of time the light remains illuminated, and 'SENS' increases / decreases light sensitivity - how dark it should be before the motion sensor comes into play based on lux levels. Zero being totally dark and usually set to 2 so as to come into use once it becomes dusk.

Lamp colour ( Kelvin's )
The colour of a lamp is defined as a measurement called kelvin. A standard GLS light bulb in your house would be 2,700 kelvin’s
which is in the warm colour spectrum and a lamp with 6,000 kelvin’s would be at the very cold white spectrum. Getting
the right colour temperature of a lamp does matter as the warm colour wavelength helps to soften skin tones and gives
a warm soft relaxed feel and at the other end of the scale a 4,000 to 6,000 kelvin lamp colour would be used in
offices or in fast food restaurants to make you feel less comfortable, relaxed and more alert. There’s nothing that can
sour your opinion of a LED lamp like buying a 4000K or 5000K bulb when you meant to buy a 2700K bulb, or vice-versa.
When you buy a new, energy efficient bulb, keep your application and colour scheme in mind and make sure to buy the bulb
with a colour temperature to match.
