aircon timerNOT a lot of people really go out and take advantage of timers. Probably because they don’t know the convenience a timer gives and what savings can be earned with the use of a timer. Timers, with the right use, are not just gadgets that shave off electricity use. They are money saving gadgets that will not only benefit the environment but also one’s pockets. Meiji offers a line of timers that can help simple users like you and me make use of our money efficiently. It’s actually a win-win situation!

Here are two Meiji Timers to acquire for a more convenient home.

1. The New Voltage Protector with Timer

Once the timer is set, it just keeps working for you. The only time you change it is if you have a change in your schedule. Even if you are away on vacation for two weeks, you can set your appliances to start working again once you enter your home, or even before that so you can be greeted by a cool room with the aircon on. But this timer is not confined to just turning on the aircon.

This is a new product that Meiji offers that has an on-off option for appliances that can be timed according to your preference. You can also dictate the time your appliance turns on or off according to the day. So if you want to defrost your frig early Friday night so that you can clean it out on Saturday morning, all you have to do is set the timer, and voila, you have a defrosted refrigerator in the morning.aircon to fan timer

Most large appliances can also use the Voltage Protector as it can handle a load of 4,400 watts, and 20 Amperes. Your appliances are now also protected from the fluctuations in electricity and from faulty surges.

2. Aircon to Fan timer

With the heat of the summer and the nights being cool enough, one really needs a timer to make sure that your aircon is off, and electricity is saved, once one is asleep. Good thing Meiji has an aircon to fan timer that can accomodate aircons of up to 2 horse power. All you need to do is plug in the aircon and the fan and set the timer for when the aircon should be turned off and the aircon turned on. This makes your aircon cost efficient and you didn’t have to disrupt your regular sleeping schedule just so that you could get up and turn off the aircon.

With the many available uses that timers have and the savings that people can earn from using timers, one should really invest in a trustworthy, durable, and multi-faceted one that the Meiji line has.

It was last Monday, February 25 when AHA GMA-7 staff came for an interview regarding Meiji’s infrared motion sensors.

It was yet another privilege for Meiji to be featured in one of GMA shows-, this time AHA, FOR FREE! 😀

Meiji and GMA

The theme of their show that coming Sunday was lights so they deemed it appropriate to include Infrared Motion Sensors. Unfortunately, they did not air it that Sunday but instead during their HEAT ENERGY episode last Sunday (March 3, 2013).

aha gma7

It was a quick, informative episode on how our our body’s THERMAL energy can be detected by the sensor in Meiji’s Infrared Motion Sensor items. With this, you may either wire it to a light bulb, thus upon your walking towards the scope of the sensor, your light bulb will lit. This may be an LED light, a fluorescent bulb, tube lights, incandescent lights and others.

You may also wire your infrared motion sensor to a buzzer, an exhaust fan or a door. Many business owners, incorporate buzzers in their motion sensors. This is also in connection with a timer. After store hours, when someone comes in to their store, the buzzer alarms. This way, any suspicious visitor will be threatened.

While other  homeowners connect their motion sensors with their exhaust fans particularly in restrooms. Meiji infrared motion sensors have adjustable delays. For example you’d like your exhaust fan to remain on after use, this is perfectly possible! 🙂

It was a funny, cool time with Maey Bautista (Maey B) here in our office that afternoon. She’s a natural comedian, a whacko! 😉 My staff and I truly enjoyed their visit. Thank you!!!

Motion sensors are now gaining publicity in our country. They are commonly being used particularly in comfort rooms of new establishments: for lighting, for flushing  toilets, for the water faucet and some for the hand dryers.

cctv cameraTechnically, there are different types of motion sensors, depending on how they detect motion and what they activate. But regardless of their means in detecting sensors, they have been really useful and helpful to industries. It can also be beneficial to YOU; if not already.

In this article, we have researched on the TOP 5 Uses of  a Motion Sensor:

Top 5: CCTV Cameras

Whether in homes or in businesses, CCTV Cameras have already become in demand. In a time when it is hard to be sure about the family and/or the business’ safety, having a monitoring device such as this one is really a big help especially when you’re not around. Cameras with motion detectors are really selling now because of practicality. You need not check your personnel’s log book to find out who were present during the incident, or ask people individually. Watch and you’ll know! Plus it doesn’t eat up much memory storage.  This is because they get activated through motion sensors.

TOP 4: Burglar Alarmsceiling type motion sensor

More and more people invest in security devices nowadays. And now, burglar alarms are also being widely used most especially as it keeps on advancing. Through motion sensing technology, they can already monitor if there is someone suspicious lurking around your area. And sure, these people’s actions activate these devices and they soon begin calling your attention through powerful alarms.

TOP 3:  Lights

In cooperation with our Mother Earth’s cry to save energy, motion sensors attached to lights could be a delight. Now, you can easily set your lights and they will be turned on and off through motion.  Once motion was detected by the sensor, lights would immediately turn on. After the set amount of time that motion is not sensed, lights will turn then turn off. Therefore, you no longer have to worry about increases in your electric bills just because you forgot to turn off the lights. Definitely a bargain.

2. Mobile PhonesSmart phones

Smart phones upgrade so fast. As time progresses, their features also become more advanced in order to suit people’s activities. And sure, they become more efficient. They begin to perform functions we once thought only humans could do. One of the best improvements about these phones is their motion sensing technology. Phones that are capable of detecting motion automatically change the display’s orientation depending on how you are holding the gadget. Now, you can already input a text message or draft an email even you are holding your gadget upside down. It may even call your desired contact just by shaking your phone when a particular contact was chosen. Apart from that, motion sensors in phones also give way to more fun, exciting, and involving games.

Wii console1.  Gaming

Who does not know Wii and Xbox? These two have been very phenomenal gaming consoles which changed the landscape of gaming. Both of them, having motion sensing technology, can make you feel as though you are really in the game. Unlike other gaming consoles which only shows you the game as it happens, this one enables you to be really part of it. Instead of simply controlling characters or vehicles through controllers, you move just like them and therefore get the entire feel of it. Through its ability to detect changes in your positions and movements, you can also have a good exercise.

Sometimes, we do not appreciate simple things that we find in the things we use everyday. But if we are just going to think of it, everything, even the simplest among innovations can come as blessings. Motion sensors are just one of them. Its wide array of uses, which range from essential security functions down to the exciting gaming consoles,  just proves how technology can be truly useful and helpful if we want them to be.

MERRY CHRISTMASChristmas is here! With it are the rush and hustle of buying gifts, preparing for parties, cooking favorite dishes, and giving to others the blessing we have for this year requires much effort and sacrifice.

Time is an essential commodity

Time is an essential commodity especially in this busy season so owning a timer can greatly help individuals who are not usually at home or who would like to be in control of what’s going on at home.

Timers vary in shapes and sizes

Timers vary in shapes and sizes and for Meiji timer, upon the user’s preference, it can also be customized accordingly.  Having a timer can allow you to organize your schedule WITHOUT  having to compromise the tasks and things you need to attend to.  Scheduling the activities ahead of time so it could be programmed into your timer can also work to your advantage. For example: You would like the garage lights to be opened every 6:00 pm so you wouldn’t need to go home to a dark house after work.  Another example would be if you would like to relax into your  air conditioned room at 10:00pm every weekends. This can be arranged with your Meiji Timers!

Very useful for students and workers

Also, giving timers as gift can be greatly appreciated by the receiver since this can be very useful for Timer with Voltage Protetectorstudents, workers whether single or married alike.  This gift is low-maintenance unlike the other gadgets in the market  and inexpensive as well as handy because one can bring it anywhere even in faraway travels.

Timers can really help us celebrate the season

There are timers that operate on batteries while other ones may use wire type.  Some also opt to have them come with alarm systems and an individual can easily set it on his desired time and sleep to his heart’s content without worrying of waking up late for an engagement. There is no danger of it getting lost because almost anyone can afford to buy it.  Timers can really help us celebrate the season free of hassle because in the midst of preparation and whirlwind of activities, one is reminded of his priorities of what should be done first and when.  One thing that’s clear is the durability and being user-friendly of the gadget.  Even old folks can use timers without having to read the whole manual with complex technical terms.  One can just set it to his own satisfaction accordingly.  There are many brands that offer these kind of gadget so people must choose wisely depending upon the model and style they want for themselves or for somebody if it is given as a gift.

For the perfectionist, everything must be put in a system. For the one who loves technology, he or she takes advantage of what it has to offer. And at home, there is one system you can’t ignore at home, it would be one run with timers. In fact I can present to you three precise purposes for you to consider installing timers into your home.

SecurityTimer with Voltage Protetector

They say that the best way to keep your house secure is by keeping the lights on. It serves as a deterrent from bad elements by creating an impression that people are inside. But we can’t really be home all the time and sometimes we even stay out late than expected. And as a solution to this dilemma, timers can be installed to make sure that an illusion of people being present at home is created. In our home, we actually do this as our lights are set to open at night time so that we can leave the house with the assurance that enough lighting is available.

Systematic

Yes, timers are perfect for someone who likes everything in the proper order and time especially if the busyness doesn’t really allow memory to remember a show to watch on TV or a radio show to listen to at a certain time. It can also help you if you want to use your lights or your television as your alarm. My parents once told me that my grandmother used timers to keep the house alive at the times she needed to as well. So if you need everything following the proper timing, you can’t go wrong with using timers.

Savings

Leaving an electric fan open for the whole night even though it gets colder during the early morning will cost you a waste in electricity. Having your lights on at 7 am just because no one is still awake at that time is money to be spent. Well timers, as long as it is properly configured can save you actually a lot of cash. Though you may not notice it at first and see the hassle and early capital of installing timers, in the long run, this is actually the best choice to save a buck.
