A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11927321B2) discloses an adjustable spherical motion sensor housing designed for outdoor security light canopies. The housing includes a spherical shroud with a lens opening, a lens covering the opening, and a motion detection unit mounted inside. The housing is attached to the canopy via a supporting cup with a gear rack system that allows for axis adjustment. A control circuit processes input from electronic components to modify the sensitivity gain of the motion detection unit in response to rotational movement of the housing, enhancing the security light's functionality.

Furthermore, the patent details additional features such as a user interface for adjusting sensitivity gain, contacts for binary input, and the use of PIR sensors within the spherical shroud. The control circuit can also receive variable inputs, such as from a potentiometer, to further customize the sensitivity of the motion detection unit. The design allows for precise adjustments along different axes, providing flexibility in monitoring and detecting motion effectively. Overall, the patented adjustable spherical motion sensor housing offers a sophisticated solution for enhancing outdoor security lighting systems with improved motion detection capabilities and user-friendly customization options.
