Chamaeleon Deco Charcoal Black - saves energy and looks great.
Huge Energy Savings for 'Always On' Lighting
The Chamaeleon Deco delivers much higher energy savings than other similar looking light fittings. Whereas other lights remain on all day, the Deco has three modes:
- Full brightness (23W),
- Reduced brightness (10W) after no movement detected,
- OR off after no motion detected.
Apart from the motion sensor, it also has an integrated daylight sensor so the light can remain off when natural light is available.
The Chamaeleon Deco Charcoal Black model is ideal for buildings where lights are otherwise left on continuously. The product has been used in residential strata buildings, hotels, hospitals, commercial offices, and many other applications.
Mounting, Microwave Sensor, & Timer Options
The Chamaeleon Deco can be wall or ceiling mounted and has a range of energy-saving options.
|Wall Mount||Ceiling Mount|
|Suggested installation height||1-1.8m||2.5-6m|
|Maximum suggested spacing||Every 5m||Every 6m|
|Detection range||Approx 6m||Approx 8m|
Sensitivity Setting - Reduce the standard detection range to 75%, 50%, 25% or 10%. This is handy if you need to 'tune' the microwave occupancy sensor to not switch on too readily in certain environments.
Time Delay Setting - The time that the light remains on at full brightness after movement has ceased. The options are 5 seconds, 30s, 1 minute, 5m, 15m or 30m. We recommend 1m for corridors and 5m for lobbies.
Daylight Sensor Adjustment - The integrated PE (photoelectric) cell can be used to make sure the light only turns on at certain ambient light levels. Options are 2 lux (dark), 5 lux, 10 lux (twilight), 30 lux, 50 lux, or photocell disabled (default setting). Note: this setting can only be used when the standby brightness is set to 0% (see below).
These settings are adjusted with a series of 'DIP switches' inside the light fitting. See the instruction manual below for details.
Standby Brightness Mode - The amount of light emitted can either be 20% or 0% when no movement is detected. We recommend the 0% setting for maximum energy savings in most cases.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the recommended light spacing in a corridor?
If you are replacing existing bulkhead light fittings you can usually just replace every light fitting (ie. one for one replacement). In some corridors, where the existing lights are quite close together, you can get away with replacing every second light fitting. In either case, the maximum recommended spacing between light fittings is approximately 5 to 6 metres for normal ceiling heights.
Can I install the light where it will be exposed to direct sunlight?
Yes, this unit is UV stabilised.
