What is a Motion Sensor Light

Motion sensor lights are the devices used mainly for illuminating outdoor areas at nighttime. What differs them from other lights is their built-in motion sensor which turns the light on only when it detects some movements within its angle and distance range, providing safety for you and low energy consumption for your budget.

To bring holiday mood to your house, string lights and Christmas lights might come in useful.

Your Comfort Zone

If you need to illuminate different outdoor areas but don’t have an opportunity to install several lights, the Home Zone 64321 will become the best solution for you. It boasts two adjustable heads that can be set in two different directions. Additionally, the light flux making 2137 lumens ensures really bright illumination.

Note that you can control the light’s work manually. Using a special dial on the motion sensor, you can set the bulbs to work continuously or use a motion lighting. In the latter mode, the lighting time after a motion detection can be set within a 5 sec - 7 min range. What we also liked about the Home Zone 64321 is that it can be programmed to light up at a certain time, when, for example, you come back home after a day at work. So, if you're looking for a device with advanced features that could light a large area in front of your house and in several directions, choose the Home Zone 64321 and be sure of your home security.

Well-thought Design

Solar lights are probably the most favored solution by many users worldwide owing to their eco-friendly features and ability to work without being bound to an electricity grid. The only problem that may occur, though, is to install them right face up to the sun. If you don’t think your place is suitable for use of the solar lights and you’ve got no proper installation area, consider the Sunforce LED motion sensor light consisting of two units, one of which goes on a wall and the other one on the roof. With these lights, your house facade wouldn’t matter at all and you’d be able to keep the lights exposed to the sun all day long. Like hardwired models, the Sunforce LED motion sensor light can be programmed to work within a certain period of time that makes 30-120 seconds. The control buttons are neatly arranged on the rear of the sensor. There you can also change the distance and direction of detecting movements. Even though these lights mightn't strike you with a sophisticated look, they'll surely become one of the most eco-friendly and energy-saving solutions to mount on any house regardless its design peculiarities.

Review of Swiftly Done Solar Outdoor LED Light

Swiftly Done Solar Outdoor LED Light

Swiftly Done Solar Outdoor LED Light

Super Fast Installation

The hallmark of the Swiftly Done Solar Outdoor LED Light is simplicity of use and maintenance. Owing to self-adhesive tape at the back of the base, this light can be mounted on any surface swiftly and tools-free, so even your child can handle the installation easily. The advantage of self-adhesive mounting is obvious, you don’t need to drill holes in the walls and if you’d need to change its installation location, you’d be able to easily take it off a wall. The downside, however, is that in the course of time, the tape might lose its stickiness and the unit would fall off the surface eventually on its own. We believe, though, this issue shouldn’t be a deal-breaker, for if you’d need to, you could easily screw it to the wall in the future and continue using the light. On top of simplicity of installation, the Swiftly Done Solar Outdoor LED Light doesn’t require any power source but the sun. This means, you only need to find the open area to keep the light powered throughout a day.

Heath/Zenith SL-5316-WH-C Replacement Wide-Angle Motion Sensor

Incredible Distance Range

While reviewing the Heath/Zenith SL-5316-WH-C motion sensor we were pleasantly surprised with its performance characteristics, considering a fairly low price. The light boasts a wide-angle motion detection within a 240-degree radius and can catch the slightest movements insuring your home against burglary and break-ins. The lighting range is also impressive and when compared to the peers, twice as big, making 70 feet in a regular mode and 100 feet in a boost mode. The brightness of the light can be set to dim or full-light, depending on your needs. A built-in timer will let you keep the light working as long as you need too, which is handy if you don’t need the light on all the time. Speaking of the light itself it’s made of a durable die-cast material that won’t rust outdoors, so you can safely mount it to your door switch and worry not about your home security. A bulb, though, is not included, and if you'd like to use the light out-of-the-box, make sure to get a 300-watts bulb in advance.

Review of Fulcrum 20031-101 Wireless Motion Light

Fulcrum 20031-101 Wireless Motion Light

Fulcrum 20031-101 Wireless Motion Light

Fully Independent

The Fulcrum Wireless Motion Light distinguishes itself by full independence of the mains and wires. The mounting is also pretty simple and requires only two screws to fix it to a wall. Being a battery-powered light, it can become the best choice for those consumers who for any reason cannot install a solar-powered light and/or don’t want to have wires all around the place. Another obvious advantage of battery-powered motion sensor lights is that they also won’t go off in case of power outage and will keep your place lighted in the dark. Colored in silver and enclosed in heavy-duty plastic, the light itself looks pretty nice too. The head is equipped with 6 LED lights that glow full blue-white light in the set direction which you can change manually by rotating it. The unit doesn’t look bulky and yet, offers a decent distance detection range in 100 degrees. Talking of the shortcomings, its light isn’t as strong and bright at the dusk as it is in the nighttime, so, if you need to keep the light on longer than that, probably, you may want to consider a different model.
