More information about staircase lighting with LED control units
Pleasant lighting in your own home is a basic requirement for creating an appropriate atmosphere of well-being. The key word here: Illumination with smart staircase lighting control. Setting up smart lighting technology for your home can start with the illumination of your stairs.
The product range includes functional controls for lighting with different types of smart sensors. The LED controls are manufactured in different versions, so you can always find an individual solution for a specific building project. Our automatic LED systems are basically based on a certain combination of sensors, a controller, a power supply unit for voltage supply and LED illuminants. Thanks to our sophisticated staircase lighting, they offer particularly impressive lighting effects that can be adjusted according to individual requirements. With the SEQUA complete sets, sensor-controlled staircase lighting can be implemented quickly and easily.
The range of accessories for the intelligent control units also includes special power boosters for LED strips and LED spotlights, which you can use to add additional, powerful elements to the set. Thanks to these amplifiers, you can create an interesting effect in the handrail or ceiling lighting. The LED strips can also be installed on the railing or on the lying side of the stairs, which leads directly to the stairs. Such solutions are, first of all, excellent additional light sources that perfectly illuminate rooms. At the same time it is a very interesting decorative element.

If you are looking for a proven control device for approach lighting, we invite you to familiarize yourself with our offer. In particular, stairs have an increased risk potential to trip. Therefore, there should be enough light especially in corridors and staircases. Avoid dangerous tripping hazards and use LED stair lights, recessed wall lights or spotlights All our step lights are equipped with energy-efficient LED technology. In addition, the LED control units are equipped with sophisticated sensor technology that turns on the stair lights only when needed.
With the right lighting, you can visually enhance barren staircases, hallways and corridors. Our LED stair lights can transform your stairs into a spectacular design element. A sensor at the beginning and end of the staircase turns the lighting on and off at the desired speed. The illumination will inspire you and your guests time and time again!
Professional controllers for automated LED stair lights
The heart of the lighting system is the control unit. It is used to control up to 20 lights. With a switching capacity of 500 mA, the control unit allows, for example, the use of up to 120 cm of LED strips per step. The on and off speed as well as the duration and brightness of the lights can be set individually. The housing is standardized and fits on DIN rails of a control cabinet. The power consumption of the control unit including the sensors is only 0.4 W in stand-by mode. Motion sensors activate gradual lighting when entering a staircase or corridor. We offer sensors that are self-adhesive, suitable for flush mounting or for M/55 systems. A 10 m connection cable is included for connection.
LED staircase lighting is not as convenient as fully automatic staircase lighting without an intelligent control system. For this reason, from the very first installation, you should remember to install the appropriate controls in your system. Motion controlled stair lights are much more efficient as they save energy when the stairs are not actively used at night. For example, with modern and smart stair lighting controls, you can implement automated LED stair lighting. The LED controls available on the market are so smart that they emit a gradually dimmed running light when you climb the stairs.
The control system of this smart lighting technology also registers when two people descend the stairs in succession. Then a particularly effective lighting effect is created. When your stairs are not in use, the control automatically switches to constant light if programmed accordingly (available on the Professional control unit). In this way, your control unit is the hub for stair lighting, as well as for the ambient lighting you choose.
In combination with light switches, you get an optimally thought-out solution for your staircase lighting concept. Because with the installed changeover switches, you can conveniently switch the continuous lighting function at the start and end of the staircase. Depending on the prevailing light conditions, the corresponding light scene is activated. Regardless of these effects, you will regularly receive high-quality lighting in the staircase area, which provides a positive atmosphere of coziness and thus a healthy living environment.
Staircase lighting control with motion sensors
The concept behind this technology is ultimately based on intelligent lighting control in combination with our special motion sensors. Technically, one sensor is located at the top of the stairs and the other at the bottom. Here, there is an interaction between the two motion sensors, as both sensors receive signals from the other motion sensor. In this way, the lighting control system registers when someone has entered the staircase - and from both sides as well.
In addition to the functions already described above, such as running light, ambient light, continuous light, etc., the intelligent control system has a so-called soft-on or soft-off function and a speed or time delay function. The soft-on or soft-off function effectively dims the lighting. This prevents the light from switching on and off harshly when the light source is turned on.
The speed or delay time function is very effective and convenient for the occupants of the house. When a second person enters the stairs, the time delay function is activated. This function ensures that the stair lights are on long enough for the next person.
Sensors for stair lights
Stair lights with motion control are an especially convenient way to turn on stair lighting based on your needs. Built-in sensors detect when a person is moving down the stairs and automatically turn on the light. Sensors from SEQUA do not require reflectors for this purpose, making them perfect for open stair types such as cantilever stairs. When a person leaves the stairs, the lighting is switched off again after an adjustable time. The motion sensors can also be installed at a certain level (installation height) and are only active from this moment - so the light remains off for pets.
Especially suitable are LEDs, which provide glare-free light and pleasant illumination of the entire room. Stair lights illuminate the stairs and provide safety and an appealing lighting effect. However, special attention is paid to the targeted illumination of the steps. Optimal staircase lighting can be achieved with various lighting solutions.
Usually, spotlights with directional light are used, which can be optimally aligned. Indirect luminaires can impress with pleasant, glare-free light and attractive lighting effects on the walls. For extra convenient lighting, a sensor-controlled one can be used that switches on and off automatically. Since stairwells usually have limited space, the size of the lights plays an important role. Compact luminaires such as recessed luminaires for flush mounting, or as a surface-mounted variant directly on the staircase stringer offer maximum freedom.
Further elementary advantages of this control technology
This intelligent control technology offers even more advantages: For example, it is expandable. The modern control system for staircase lights focuses mainly on staircases with up to 16 steps. This is exactly the number of steps that a staircase in a new building usually has. There are no limits to the innovative and intelligent technology used to control the stair lights. With additional modules and power supplies, you can sufficiently illuminate a staircase with up to 26 steps at home.
This type of lighting technology is also very energy efficient and creates a healthy and pleasant atmosphere for you and your family. Today, it is scientifically proven that a lighting scene adapted to individual needs, for example, the use of warm white light sources in the staircase, creates a living environment that has a positive effect on the body. It is not for nothing that apartment owners are recommended to install so-called smart-home lighting in their four walls.
Basically, smart home lighting means nothing more than creating a lighting concept that continuously adapts to your individual needs with a central lighting system throughout your living space. Smart stair lights with all their functions are an essential part of this smart home lighting. Thus, you can implement the optimum in your four walls with the smart control technology.
