Movement sensor mirrors and false triggering

Some modern bathroom mirrors are activated by means of a sensor switch located somewhere on the mirror. This doesn't activate the switch by detecting your movement upon entering a room but actually turns the bathroom mirror on when a hand is passed closely in front of the sensor. This does have occasional drawbacks however where by an over-sensitive sensor switch can activate and deactivate the bathroom mirror if an activity occurs in front of the mirrors such as shaving or cleaning teeth. This can be incredibly frustrating for the user. Some bathroom mirror manufacturers have begun fitting the sensor switches below the mirror glass to eliminate this false triggering. It is always worth asking a bathroom mirror retailer how sensitive the sensor switch is on their mirrors to determine how suitable their products are for your own needs
