In this paper we present a way to reduce the standby power consumption of a PIR-sensor-based lighting device. Generally, although a PIR-sensor-based lighting device will turn on when motion is detected and turn off when the motion is no longer present, this device still consumes 1-3 W of power when the lamp is off. In this design the device consumes 0.004 W when the light is turned off, and it is not only easy to set up but also inexpensive. Our circuit supplies the lamp with power when motion is detected; when the motion disappears it turns the lamp off, and the electric power is shut off to reduce the standby power. We use an MCU receiving signals from a PIR sensor which detects any individual approaching the device. The MCU controls the SSR On/Off when used as a light switch for shutting off the standby power. The MCU monitoring program provides automatic detection of any individual by means of the PIR sensor. The MCU has internal modules to simplify the hardware circuit design.
