Shower rooms offer huge challenges for presence detectors. The minimum protection class required is IPX5 protection. However, such detectors cannot be directly installed into the shower cabin. For this reason, we recommend usage of the Swiss Garde 360 Presence Master Detector with IP55 casing, installed at sufficient distance from the showers. Make sure to set appropriate stopping time. If the detector is being used during daylight, ventilation can also be directly controlled via the detector switch output (via a safety switch if required).
