Flush Dali sensor Ceiling mount motion & presence detector by Niko design team

Home > Winners > #66868


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Flush Dali sensor

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Ceiling mount motion & presence detector

INSPIRATION:
One of the main inspiration sources for the design of the sensor are contemporary architectural luminaires. The sensor is intended to be used in public spaces such as schools, offices, etc., therefore the sensor was designed with these contexts in mind. Installers want to be proud on the work they deliver, that's why the backside of Niko products, generally only seen by the installer, is designed with great attention to detail. This backside is also designed in line with the Niko design language, which makes Niko products instantly recognisable.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Flush mount motion detector with a unique flat lens that integrates seamlessly in the ceiling. Installation is easy with the Niko patent pending mounting bracket system. Once installed, the installer can program the sensor completely remotely, using the accompanying app on a smartphone. All you need is a Bluetooth connection. Most existing motion detectors have a 'technical looking' backside. The backside of a Niko sensor is designed with at least the same level of attention to detail as the frontside.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The patent pending mounting bracket facilitates a fast and easy installation in a wide variety of ceiling materials. After connecting the wires, the connectors are covered with a snap-on cover part. The ceiling mounting features are covered with a clean looking cover ring. Programming the sensor is just as easy as installing it, thanks to the accompanying smartphone app. Furthermore, there is no need to program each sensor separately: programming can be done in advance and can then be broadcasted to multiple sensors at once.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in April 2017 and was finished March 2018 in Sint-Niklaas, Belgium. The mechanics and industrial design team was situated in Sint-Niklaas, Belgium (Niko headquarters). Hardware and software teams were located in Denmark.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Home Appliances Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The housing parts of the product are made of polycarbonate plastics and fiber reinforced polycarbonate plastics. There is no need for screws or glue to assemble the product. All parts are assembled with snap fixtures, which allows faster assembly times. Laser marking, pad printing and sticker labels were used as product marking techniques. Passive infrared (PIR) technology is used for the sensor. Several prototypes were tested with users in order to iterate and refine the design.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Product dimensions: width 100mm x depth 100mm x height 109mm sensor viewing distance: 10m at mounting height 2,5m wireless connection: bluetooth push-in terminals, wire section up to 2,5mm 12 connector terminals operation temperature: -25°C to +50°C DALI compatible

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
-

CHALLENGE:
Several design challenges were encountered during this project: designing a flat lens with 10m viewing distance, integrating wireless Bluetooth connectivity in combination with certain ceiling materials or product part materials, developing the mounting bracket (in order to be used in all types of ceiling materials), designing features for cable management, maintaining a stylised and coherent industrial design while integrating technical features.
