Maximise Energy Savings in Low Occupancy Areas

The Osram LED Motion Sensor Tube is a new energy saving replacement for always-on 4 Foot T8 fluorescent tubes. It dims down to low brightness when no one is around. See also: 600mm LED Sensor Tube.

It is an ideal lighting solution for areas such as car parks, corridors and storage areas.

  • Full brightness when movement detected, dropping to 30% at all other times.
  • In-built microwave motion sensor - more effective than PIR sensors.
  • Includes replacement starter (so you can install yourself).
  • Works in all fitting types, including those with a diffuser!
  • Price includes 1200mm LED Tube with sensor and LED starter.

An Ideal Solution for 'Always On' Lighting

In the past, motion sensor lighting systems were expensive and complex to install. Take car-parks for example, how do you place sensors in all areas so people don't accidentally get left in the dark? [Answer: you can't]

The Osram LED Sensor Tube addresses this issue by including a sensor in every LED tube. This way lights are only on at full brightness in occupied areas. Also, they are not vulnerable to a single point of failure, and are super easy to install.

Furthermore, when no motion is detected, they do not turn off completely. They remain in standby (sensing) mode and still emit 30% of their total light output.

Save up to $90 per year, for every tube replaced

Compared to fluro tubes, this LED sensor tube will reduce energy usage by over 90%. Here's how:

  • Old T8 Fluorescent Tube 36W plus 9W in the ballast (45W). Total = 1.08 kWh/day.
  • New Sensor LED Tube 16W (eg. 1 hour per day) and 3W in standby. Total = 0.085 kWh/day.
  • That's over 90% energy saving!

Installation guide - 4 Foot (1200mm) LED Fluro Tube with Sensor

The Osram LED Motion Sensor Tube is easy to install in your existing T8 light fixtures. There are two main types of fluorescent light fittings:

1) Magnetic ballast fittings - with starters. These are the most common fitting type. Simply replace the tube and starter (supplied) and you're done! Magnetic ballast fittings are identifiable by the fact they have starters present.

Easy installation for any fitting with a starter.

2) Electronic ballast fittings - no starters. Unlike the example shown above, these fittings do not have a starter. These units will require an electrician to 'wire out' the existing ballast. Fittings without starters that switch on instantly (no flicker) are generally electronic ballast.

Osram T8 LED Tube with motion Sensor. Installed in my garage down one end where I spend the least amount of time. They a bright enough (in low power mode) to see, and go to full power instantly. Fantastic

Great solution for a dark garage

My older parents have to step up in the dark of their garage in order to turn on the light. These sensor tubes are a brilliant fix to make things safer

Osram T8 LED Tube 16W with Motion Sensor - 4 Foot

Good product, very bright

Richard L.

Do not need to turn on the lights when parking at garage during middle of the night anymore. Highly recommended.

Stephen L.
Good for infrequently occupied areas

Bought 5. The first one installed had a sensor problem and was replaced. The ones in use now work fine. Useful for garages and kitchens where you have lots of action to keep the tube lit
No good for sitting and dining rooms where it may go dark in the midst of a meal or a conversation with little movements to keep the sensor happy.

Allan Bundesen
Excellent product

We replaced our standard fluorescent tubes with these recently. They are working well up to date. Just one tube broken in transit of 75 purchased.

Evan M.
Great product. Could dim a lot further.

My order initially arrived with the tubes broken in transit. Reduction Revolution were fantastic at getting a replacement out to me.

The tubes sensor is really quick and sensitive but the dim setting is still quite bright. I'd guess they could dim down below 10% (rather than 30%) without any concerns to cut energy consumption further.
