If you’re an avid fan of sci-fi movies or have seen at least one or two really good sci-fi films, you may have already definitely noticed they often have super cool technology! Somehow, movie writers end up imagining and creating random gadgets and devices, each one more cool and efficient and powerful than the last.

While a lot of sci-fi technology cooked up in movies still remain fictional, there are some that scientists actually managed to bring to real life! For example, who would have thought many years ago that having motion-sensor items in your own home in the Philippines would actually be possible?

Well it is. Amazingly, many gadgets used to be found only in movies have become part of our daily lives. This happens more often than you’d expect too. For example, these few times when sci-fi movies predicted future technologies….

Mobile Phones

Before mobile phones, we had… well, regular wired phones that stayed in our houses and weren’t in our hands 24/7. Did you know we actually owe our mobile phones to the Star Trek franchise? The inventor of the first cell phone, Martin Cooper, admitted his invention was inspired by the handheld communicators in the Star Trek universe. The classic handheld communicators were in the original television series and Star Trek III: The Search for Spock.

Tablets

Not the old school tablets that Moses used to have, but modern tablets that are pretty much large phones or portable desktop monitors… eh, you know what we mean. You know exactly which tablet we are talking about because almost everyone we know has one! You’re even probably reading this article on a tablet right now. While tablets were only invented and became common a few years ago, the film 2001: A Space Odyssey contains a scene wherein a man is eating breakfast and watching the news on what looks like the table we have today. However, the movie was released in 1968! Now that’s foresight!

3D Printers

replicator

The mobile phone isn’t the only device predicted by Star Trek. In the franchise, there is a machine called a Replicator that is capable of creating objects out of thin air. The 3D printer is similar in a way that it can create/recreate something, but the process is a little more complicated than something appearing out of thin air. While we can print 3D food these days, it’s not mass produced and is still being worked on by scientists. Plus flavorwise, it’s practically tasteless (or so we heard).

Videophone

People used to think it impossible to  have a real-time conversation with someone not within a few feet of you, let alone actually be able to see them! 2001: A Space Odyssey had this device, as did Blade Runner and several other sci-fi movies. Nowadays, not only can we video call someone using our phones, we can also use our webcams to chat with people from literally thousands of miles away.

It makes you think, doesn’t it, of how far our technology has come and how lucky we are that we were born in this era (or are we?). Regardless, we can also look forward to upcoming inventions and breakthroughs.

Are you also waiting for hoverboards to become as common as mobile phones? Or are there other advanced technologies you’re waiting to become reality? Let us know!

One might say that Ian Fleming’s legacy, the James Bond series, has been one of the most popular fictional espionage stories, as well as the template for fictional spies in some of today’s media. It’s about British Secret Service agent James Bond, famously known as 007, and his missions to save the world.

The action, suspense, thrill, and the occasional romance are just some of the reasons why James Bond is loved by anyone, regardless of age. With the advancements in technology like motion sensors already available in the Philippines or locked-room escape games, it is no wonder why James Bond is who people channel to finish a game.

But Bond is not the only fictional spy you can watch in action. If you are one of many Bond fans, here is a list of spy films that are perfect you.

the spy who came in from the cold

The Spy Who Came in from the Cold (1965)

The 1960’s was an era where military tension was palpable between powerful nations. It was no surprise that spy films have come to adopt this as an effective plot device. The film The Spy Who Came in from the Cold War is based on a book of the same title written by John le Carré. The protagonist, Alec Leamas, is very much unlike James Bond. He doesn’t have the sophistication Bond seems to exude; instead, his manner is very straightforward. He shows contempt both for his enemies and for his job. Unlike James Bond who relies on gadgets, he makes use of skill and cunning to get out of a situation.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The Quiller Memorandum (1966)

The Quiller Memorandum is based on a spy novel written by Trevor Dudley-Smith called The Berlin Memorandum. It’s also set in the Cold War era where agent Quiller was sent to Berlin to investigate a neo-Nazi organization. This spy, just like Alec Leamas from The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, is not like Bond. He doesn’t like guns, believing that it gives a person a false sense of security. He relies on wit and his knowledge of the martial arts. The film depicts what undercover missions can do to a man.

roniin movie

Ronin (1998)

The story follows the story of ex-special operatives turned mercenaries who were hired to steal a suspiciously heavily guarded package, wanted by the Russians and the IRA. It has every element that you expect in a spy film: loads of dialogue, thrilling car chases, and action-packed scenes. However, one its appeals isn’t in their treatment of the spy film formula, but of the use of practical effects. The car chases were done practically, none of the visual effects that are overused in today’s films.

body of lies

Body of Lies (2008)

The film is based on the novel of the same name written by David Ignatius. The story is set in the Middle East where the CIA and the Jordanian Intelligence were looking to catch a jihadist by the name of Al Saleem. Roger Ferris, a lone ranger type, concocted a plan that involved making up a fictional rival terrorist organization and use it to get to Al Saleem.

farewell

Farewell (2009)

A French espionage film originally titled L’affaire Farewell, literally The Farewell Affair, was adapted from the novel Bonjour Farewell: La vérité sur la taupe française du KGB by Serguei Kostine. It follows the story of a high-ranking KGB officer and a Frenchman who smuggled Soviet Secrets to the United States, hoping to end military tensions between powerful nations. As you may have already guessed from the plot, it’s set in the Cold War. The film was applauded not just because of how it’s written, but also because of its beautiful and striking cinematography.

Recent films that you might want to check out are Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) and The Man from U.N.C.L.E (2015), which shows us that spy shouldn’t always follow the same the formula, that they can deviate to gallows humour that a lot of people are starting to appreciate nowadays.

The films listed above are some of the most recommended spy films that are perfect, not just for the avid Bond film, but also for those wanting a rush of adrenaline.

Imagine a life without refrigerators, electric fans, televisions, computers, electric lights, and iron. Just picturing out such a life is difficult, isn’t it? Well, without electricity, all these things wouldn’t be able to make our lives more convenient. But what exactly is electricity, and how does it get to our homes?

We here at Meiji Electronic, the best electrical supplier in the Philippines, will give you a lowdown on how this force of nature powers our modern-day devices.

Definition of Electricity

Electricity is a type of energy formed by the existence and movement of an electrical charge such as protons or electrons. Protons are positively charged, while protons are negatively charged. Like particles repel from one another while those with opposite charges attract one another.

Forms of Electricity

There are two forms of Electricity: Static and Current electricity.

static electricity meiji

Static

Sometimes, when you comb your hair really fast, there is some sort of energy that makes your hair strands stand by themselves. Or sometimes you experience a shot of electricity when your skin makes contact with another person. Some call it magic, but it’s actually static electricity. This is caused by the imbalance of opposite charges, which results to the electrons bouncing around atoms to relieve energy. Another example is one of nature’s most beautiful phenomenon, lightning.

current electricity meiji

Current

You may have seen the letters AC and DC when it comes to electronics. AC stands for alternating current, while DC stands for direct current. It is easy to know the difference between the two currents. Direct Current flows in only one direction, while Alternating current goes back and forth. Direct Current is applicable to toys and small gadgets while Alternating is applicable to large household appliances such as washing machines.

How does Electricity Travel to Your Home?

Before electricity can reach your home, it has to be produced first, and there are different ways to generate electricity for mass consumption. There are different possible ways to generate power: moving water (hydroelectric), nuclear fission (nuclear), wind, and the sun (solar). Here in the Philippines, however, the most common one, which is also the most common one around the world, is burning fossil fuel – coal or petroleum – to produce steam, which powers the large turbines. When these turbines move, electricity is produced.

Next, the electricity moves through the power plant to the transformers, where the voltage is raised to allow the electricity to travel through long distances. The electricity is sent through power lines that can last for miles to a substation transformer, where the voltage is lowered down. Finally, it is sent to a pole transformer to reduce once and for all the voltage down to 120 to 250 volts.

This electricity flows to a service box that measures how much electricity you use. Breakers and fusers are also located here to insulate the wires from any possible electrical overload. The electricity then flows through your home to power whatever electronic device you have, such as your computer or microwave.

We have been living with electricity for so long that it’s already taken for granted. But now that you know more about this all-too-important resource, you probably appreciate it even more.

Isn’t it convenient when the lights automatically turn on when you enter a room? You don’t have to reach for the light switch and or have to find it in the dark. But aside from convenience, installing a Meiji Motion Sensor for your lighting fixtures can give you other advantages.

Here are some:

Conserve electricity

One of the major benefits of a Meiji Motion Sensor is that it can help you save substantial amounts of electricity. You and your family members and helpers have the possibility to forget to turn the lights off after you leave the room. Have Meiji Motion Sensor turn the lights off for you.

Also, accidentally leaving electrical devices on overnight contributes to a higher electricity bill. You’ll be able to light your garage, driveway, master’s bedroom, pantries, and entry ways only for the instances that you need to use them.

Security

Meiji Motion Sensors are great deterrents from burglars, who may be startled by the sudden illumination or alarm. This can signal that someone is home. These can also alarm the neighbors that someone is trying to sneak into your house.

Cost-effectiveness

The cost of Meiji Motion Sensors range from P500 to P600, depending on the type, features, and style of the motion sensor you choose. Installing a motion sensor on your outdoor light can save more money which means your investment,will pay for itself in less than one year!

Helps save the environment

Meiji Motion Sensors are great for lighting areas that you only use briefly, since they only stay on as long as you need. By automatically turning off after a few minutes, they prevent wasted electricity and help conserve energy resources. In fact, according to the Philippines Renewable Energy Data from IEA, the top source of energy in the Philippines is natural gas, which is used to generate electrical energy in our power plants. These are harmful to workers, pollute air and water, create greenhouse gas emissions and contribute to global warming. By using Meiji Motion Sensors, you also save the environment from the detrimental effects of natural gas!

 

Equipping your home with Meiji Motion Sensors gives you an added level of protection, especially when you leave your home. Also, when planning for your next vacation or extended trip away from home, it is highly recommended that you consider installing motion sensors into your home.  Not only will you be benefiting your home and family with this extra security, but your wallet and the environment will appreciate this as well.

If you have areas in or around your home that only require light when someone is present, associating Meiji Motion Sensors to your lights can help you reduce your utility costs. At the same time, motion sensor lighting is an essential weapon in your home security system. But not only that, they can bring total convenience too! Here are 4 benefits of associating Meiji Motion Sensors to your lighting facilities:

Alert for intruders

If you are inside your home and busy watching TV or doing chores, you can be aware of intruders attempting to break in, especially at night. You can feel safer when prowlers get scared off when Meiji Motion Sensors detected them and spot lights on to them before they can even sneak in to your gate. It is proven fact that homes with motion sensors have less crime than those that do not.iStock_000004928383Medium

Lighting Convenience

Motion Sensors connected to lighting facilities are convenient for your family. This is a great benefit when you want to conveniently turn on lights in your comfort room without switching ON the lights manually. In the comfort room, when motion sensors cannot detect body movements anymore, it will automatically turn off. Besides, you wouldn’t want to let your lights in the comfort room turned on for a long time.Amanda+Seyfried+Amanda+Seyfried+Picks+Up+Groceries+ul9Qf8Eu4nvl

Extra Security

Outdoor motion sensor security lights help your neighbors watch your home. If you go on vacation, they can see if the light goes on in your gate, so they can go check out the house and call you or an emergency hotline.SAMSUNG

Light up Dark Areas

If you own a condo unit, dark hallways leading to your comfort room or kitchen area can be lightened up with Meiji Motion Sensors. Suppose you have to go to your rest room in the middle of the night and all lights are turned off already, with Meiji Motion Sensors, you can conveniently walk straight to where you’re heading. The same convenience applies when you want to have midnight snacks. Searching for the light switch in the kitchen in the middle of the night can be dangerous as lights are off and you might hit kitchen utensils, especially the knives. In one way or another, Meiji Motion Sensors can save your life!

Our daily living needs to be secured these days as burglars try a lot of means to get homes. Motion sensors can be considered a “must have” security device that can help discourage unwanted visitors. One of the ways we can avoid such is the use of a Ceiling-type Motion Sensor.

Ceiling-type Motion Sensorc26-B00192EUFY-3

A Ceiling-type Motion Sensor is a motion detecting equipment which uses passive infrared (PIR) energy to recognize the movement of heat or any person invited or uninvited in a specific area in your home. It is simply installed in your ceiling and voila! You reap the benefits of either having an alarm system or automatic lighting.

Ceiling-type Motion Sensors detect the presence or absence of people in your home and turn lights on and off accordingly. They can reduce your lighting energy consumption by 50 percent or more in some circumstances, but the savings for any given installed sensor can be much less. As a result, it’s important to carefully consider some before installing one in a specific location.

Secure your home with Meiji Ceiling-type Motion Sensor!

360˚ detection range

ceiling-type-motion-sensor

Because Meiji Electric offers you a Ceiling-type Motion Sensor with a 360˚ detection range, you can be sure that your home is secured against several possible criminal acts which cannot be detected if nobody is around.

Meiji Ceiling-type Motion Sensor (MS-02) is also a fully automatic indoor security light controller capable of controlling your lights up to 1200W incandescent or 300W fluorescent lighting. With detection distance of 3 to 6 meters (<24˚), all movements can be spotted accurately. Like the light switches in our home, Meiji Ceiling type motion sensor needs a 220-240VAC power supply.

Can be effectively used in areas that are often unoccupied

Shower-led-motion-sensor-light-MB980-ShowerMeiji Ceiling-type Motion Sensors can also be effectively used in areas that are often unoccupied, including some offices, warehouses, storerooms, restrooms, corridors, stairwells, office lounges, and conference rooms. Meiji Ceiling-type Motion Sensor can also be useful in schools, colleges, nurseries, churches, libraries, and other areas where tampering is a concern. Considerations for your motion sensor placement include sources of ambient temperature changes such as heating vents; sources of movement such as pets, wind, and normal traffic patterns.led-motion-sensor-ceiling-light-MB980-Stairs
Nowadays, motion sensors show to be very effective because of their different uses. Having a little knowledge about their type, functions and best installation is a “must” to prevent misuse and disappointments. And to maximize the best usage of motion sensors, particularly the Ceiling-type, make sure to invest on the brand which you entrust your safety and convenience.

Motion sensors are great for adding in extra security for your home. Aside from fortifying your home’s security, it can also deduct chances of false alarms. Don’t you just hate waking up in the wee hours just to find out there’s actually nothing? Or heading straight home after you’ve been notified by the house alarm and then turns out to be some glitch in the system?

Worry no more. Knowing where to place your motion detectors can minimize false alarms and keep your mind at peace. Here’s how. The typical sensors installed in your house use Passive Infrared (PIR) to measure temperature and catch changes or alterations made in its coverage’s temperature like everything inside a room. Significant changes in temperature in a room, for example, moving human body heat, can easily be detected by these PIR sensors. And consequently, raise an alarm.

To heighten your security and get a better sight of unwanted intruders, you need to select the right nooks and corners to place your sensors.

You can follow these pointers from the security expert themselves to maximize home security.

motion with voice sensor

Sensor should be mounted securely

First and foremost, you have to check if the motion sensor is securely mounted. If it isn’t, then it could be a cause for false positive alarms. When a sensor is not properly attached and happens to move itself or slide off, it could count as motion and therefore activate its own alarm.

Take in mind that any variatio in temperature can set off your motion sensor. So it is wise not to put it near air vents, heating elements (refrigerator, air conditioners, lights) and rather keep it far from them as possible. As vents can often give off a difference in temperature, on rare situations can eventually get your alarm going when aimed near it. With distancing the sensors from them it can thus, cut down possibilities of raising false alarms.

Place sensors towards entry points

Strategically place sensors towards entry points. This is the best way to detect if there are intruders in your house. After all, the perks of having a motion sensor lie in the determent of burglars by triggering the security system’s alarm before they reach what they’ve come for. “That” they won’t see coming. With that said, you should put up sensors directly facing possible entry ways such as doors or windows.motion sensor area

Take advantage of the area your sensors will be covering

Take advantage of the area your sensors will be covering. To have a full scope on your sensors’ coverage by making sure they don’t have an obstructed view of the whole area. Most homeowners prefer mounted sensors since they are attached on the walls, it is easier for them to detect motion and get a full view of the room. Corners are the most likely ideal position for mounted detectors to gain more scope.

And finally, the last piece of advice from the professionals is that more than one sensor can take your home’s security a fairly long way. A few good ones that are carefully and properly placed is absolutely a fine count on your house’s security and of course, your peace of mind. Why not put up a few in hallways and stairways to avoid blind spots and keep your home safe and sound from intruders or trespassers.

no_need_for_switchAre you one of those people who tend to forget turning-off the lights when leaving a certain area, like comfort rooms? Or does your child/spouse tend to do that for you?

Well, you are not alone. There are many people who experience this. And that includes me! If you are worrying that this might affect your electricity bills (It already does, I swear!). Good news! Meiji Electric is here to help you with your power-saving dilemmas.

Using Infrared Motion Sensors

Infrared Motion Sensors could help save electricity that we consume everyday. Why? Seldom used places like conference rooms, storage rooms, utility closets and bathrooms are areas where people tend to forget to turn off the lights before leaving. Meaning, the lights will remain on until someone notices it. And what do we get in return? An unwelcoming shock and dismay as soon as your electricity bill reaches your doorstep.

Using infrared motion sensors in areas that get much foot traffic

And that is frustrating, right? You’re paying more due to carelessness or neglect. That is why most of the offices and even homes right now are using infrared motion sensors in different areas that get much foot traffic or the places we usually go into, as mentioned earlier.  Infrared motion sensor senses the person’s body heat. So, when a person enters a room installed with a motion sensor, the motion sensor will automatically trigger the light to turn on. When the person leaves, (and so does its heat), the light will turn off after the set period of time. (This can be adjusted to your preference with Meiji’s motion sensor). This ensures that your lights do not get left on needlessly for hours or even days.

Save electricity, save money

According to a study conducted by Rowan University in US, “The installation of the motion sensors alone saved approximately 30% of the electric bill.”

THE MEIJI MOTION SENSORAnd when we save electricity, we save money. In addition, we make mother nature happy. Cost efficiency as you know is very important especially nowadays. There are a lot of factors that trigger our electricity bills to spike up. Some may be uncontrollable, like electricity hike of our power providers. But others are controllable, like our consumption. That is why we need to be wise in using our appliances and use devices that could really help us save energy. And this is what motion sensors are all about. It’s not just for the convenience that you don’t need to find the outlet to open the lights anymore but also to minimize the usage of our electricity, resulting to a better outcome.  A win-win scenario!

So now, what are you waiting for? Have your own motion sensors installed in your home and office, and see how it makes your life easier.

Our generation today became a generation of “upgrades”. We tend to have a desire to innovate or to improve products from time to time. It is human curiosity that drives us to want to try something new. We become more interested in something when we know that it is different from what we already have, seen or used.

Only change is constant in the world

Like what they say,” Only change is constant in the world. “What seems impossible yesterday could now be possible. I grew up watching Science-Fiction films like Iron Man, Batman and Star Wars. Since then I am fascinated on how they use devices that could activate and deactivate machines through the use of their movements and voices. I frequently ask myself how it feels to use those kinds of devices; but there is no reason for me to ask those kinds of questions anymore. Because of today’s innovations, what we only see in our Sci-Fi movies now came into reality.

To meet the changing demand of the market, Meiji Electric came up with another product in line with their existing motion sensors. The MS-04 Sound controlled Motion Sensor.

MS-04 SOUND-CONTROLLED MOTION SENSORmotion and sound sensor

Unlike other motion Sensors offered by Meiji before, MS-04 has PIR-MIC mode, which senses both infrared energy and human voices. Infrared Energy comes from the heat from our bodies, so even if you don’t move or you fell asleep inside the comfort room (coz you can’t get it out!), you won’t be disturbed because the lights will remain on. Also, it is sound-controlled, meaning by just clapping your hands, you may automatically switch on your lights! Convenient, isn’t it?

Control sensitivity that can be adjusted

It also has a control sensitivity that can be adjusted from 30 decibels (db) to 90 db depending upon how loud you want it. It has an ambient light detection of 3-2000 LUX so it can be used during the day and/or night. Meiji motion sensor with voice sensor also has a detection range of 4 to 9 meters with a 160 degree detection angle.

For those who want a different experience with their motion sensors, Meiji’s sound-controlled motion sensor is a must try. It gives is not just the satisfaction and convenience but the glimpse of the modern world.

Security is one of the most important things wise people invest on. Why? For one because we have loved ones and resources to protect, perhaps secrets to keep, and most probably other personal reasons to keep you glued to this article.

In the past years, a trend has been going on here in our country to install cameras or otherwise known as CCTV both in our own homes and establishments. Yet a question deep inside can’t help but continually bugs me  is, ‘Is this the best security available? Or better yet, would it continue to be effective when I don’t have much time to review the day’s events in front of the monitor?

Well look no more for motion sensors are already here! As the name entails, it’s a device which when integrated with other components could alert someone (owner)  for any extraordinary movements; protecting us even in our sleep!

Before I go any further, I would like to note that motion sensors are not only exclusively utilized for burglar alarms but in activation of lights and appliances as well when entering a particular unit or room. There are certain condominiums in various financial districts that have already started implementing these devices.

In a brief, I’ll give you the top 3 reasons why motion sensors are necessary in our lives:

THE MEIJI MOTION SENSORTHE MEIJI MOTION SENSORTHE MEIJI MOTION SENSOR

(1)   Security

Motion sensors are well-suited for everybody because as human beings, we all want to be secure! It’s suited for those who cannot stay at home all day to protect their homes. It’s for people who have errands/emergencies to run and if I may add,  for weary individuals who cannot afford to lack a night’s rest and needs to find  peace and security not only in their minds but in their hearts as well.

(2)   Effective

It’s really simple. You don’t have to turn or press anything,  just move and it will be activated. Meiji Infrared Motion Sensors saves you time,  energy as well electricity since consumption will only be at a minimum! It will automatically turn off after no movement and heat is being sensed within its detection range and the time delay you personally set. Not to mention, it’s  effectiveness without  scaling down walls and ceilings!

(3)   Efficiency

Meiji Motion sensors also help us save on resources. Tangible resources like hiring of guards, getting watch dogs up  to intangible ones like a good night sleep and a peace of mind resulting to more quality time spent bonding with loved ones.

Wise up and make your family and home security a priority! Choose Meiji Infrared Motion Sensors!
