@nikhilmargam : I moved your post from the hijacked thread to a thread of its own. You need to be much more specific about your product and your requirements.

How are you expecting this to detect?
Specs say “max 300mm detection”. I would think that’s a little optimistic, maybe 150mm.
Also, where is the module located?
In a very bright room, it may not work at all. Try covering the LED a little to block day light.
Then, if still not working as desired, try moving an object (not human) in detection range.

hi martin,
thanks for the advice, i will try this. i put the module on the top of the mirron and lights are on the ceiling. i connected it to the relay to operate the lights.
i will first try covering the IR leds and then will c how it works.
