Chamaeleon Charcoal Black Light with Sensor

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:

  1. Full brightness (21W),
  2. Reduced brightness (9W) after no movement detected,
  3. 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).

Chamaeleon Deco DIP Switches

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.

How much will I save by installing this light fitting?

Energy and cost savings can be very substantial, but will depend on a wide range of factors. Taking the example of many apartment buildings with corridor lighting on 24/7 we have the following potential scenarios:

Light Fitting Average Load (Watts) Annual Operating Cost
Existing Oyster Light with T5 Circular Fluorescent Tube 32 $70
Existing Oyster Light with 2x18W PL CFL Bulbs 45 $99
NEW Chamaeleon Deco 21W LED (off in standby) 4 $9

The above example shows how you can often achieve energy savings up to 90% in some buildings. This gives a simple payback period of around 3 years once installation costs have been added.

Don't forget these light fittings also facilitate maintenance cost savings as well, which are not included above. More importantly, they usually produce a better and brighter quality of light than existing lights. In fact, we often find it is this final point of better lighting (not just the energy savings) that really wins over our customers.

Very modern & well balanced light ambience

Lighting is very nice. Only complain is you cannot control standby to total dark by flick of a switch. You need to predetermine what you want before installation by an electrician since it is done during installation & cannot be changed after.
