Essential Info

Increase safety around your home for family members and guests while adding a level of security to your home. The Solar Powered Motion Activated Security Halogen Light turns on automatically when it detects movement, so your loved ones and guests won't have to walk up to a dark home; additionally it will help to deter potential intruders. This product is solar powered, so no electrician or custom wiring is needed for installation, and there are no operating costs. The solar panel can be located up to 15 feet away from the light using the included cable, making it convenient to mount the panel in an area where it can capture the most sunlight or to mount the light indoors. It features an adjustable PIR motion sensor with a 180° detection (up to 35 feet) range and an adjustable daylight sensitivity (lux). Once movement has been sensed, the ultra-bright 30 Watt halogen light will illuminate for a specified period of time from 10 seconds up to four minutes; good for activation up to 150 times for one minute at a time on a full charge. This light is the perfect solution for areas where electricity is not available yet lighting is desired, such as porches, driveways, garages, doorways, and any other area around your home. The solar panel charges three AA NiMH rechargeable batteries, included.

A Solar Powered Motion Activated Security Halogen Light, 10 Watt is also available.

Hands On Research
My neighbor was having graffiti problems on the back wall of his property (new graffiti on a monthly basis). The area was dark and easy for vandals to hide and "paint" at their leisure. It was also an area where he did not have outdoor electricity. I installed one of these lights on his garage to deter vandals. It’s been 5 months and no graffiti! The light only comes on when there is motion, so it is not wasting any of the solar energy, and adds an element of surprise to anybody walking back there at night. It’s bright (30 watts), and it stores energy very well (I’ve seen it on even after cloudy days). I’ve tested other solar lights and this is by far the brightest. I highly recommend this light as an alternative to wired outdoor lighting.

    Easy installation and set-up. The amount of light from the halogen bulb exceeds the light level of an LED light it replaced. Best value for the money on the web.
    DWSF -- ft. collins, CO   2/28/2012
    It's TEMPERMENTAL. We love this when it works, but it only seems to be good for a couple short bursts per night and it generally won't work on windy days sensitivity is set fairly low and the light is not coming on at all on most windy days. We get lots of sun here and the solar panel is well-positioned we added an extender arm to put it high enough to catch full all-day sun. We just want it to light up the edge of our low deck so our nearly-blind dog won't fall off. We went through too much work to mount it to change it out. Yes, I did go through all the steps to test it before mounting as suggested by reviewers on other lights, and it seemed to work fine then we had to return another model of light that did NOT work in pre-mount testing. My biggest disappointment with Smarthome is they do not cover return/replacement shipping when you get a defective product. Just be forewarned....

    A nice light for places that are not convenient for connecting to house wiring. Use it to light up some stairs.
    CHARLES -- annandale, VA   6/9/2011
    lighting is decent and works well. I wish the cord was longer.
    ALFRED -- south glens falls, NY   5/13/2011
    As stated works great, good light, easy to mount, has three adjustment. When I was installing it I heard a sound as though there was something loose inside. I am hoping it is not a broken part but just a piece of stray plastic from the manufacturing. So far it has worked well on my back porch and I will probably purchase another one for the side of the house.
    JOHN -- waianae, HI   3/12/2011
    Got one for driveway and one for back of house. Easy to install, angle of lamp and sensor adjusts so person walking on sidewalk will not trigger light. Especially like solar charger since wires to lamps are high. May get one more for side of house.
    ANITA -- warrior, AL   12/7/2009
    I bought one but returned it, but will say that the 30W light has more of a natural warm light versus the colder, bluer light from the LED. Another thing I noticed was the amount of light from this 30W SEEMED to be higher than the 80LED...but it could have been my imagination from the color of the light. There was a defect in the housing of this light so I returned it and waiting for my replacement.
    RICHARD -- rochester, NY   11/8/2009
    I have not installed this yet, but brought it to provided security for the side of my house where there is a wall of windows but no doors.

    JPB -- new york, New York   7/20/2009
    I read a couple of reviews of this light on other sites and was initially skeptical. I was in need of an outdoor light, and did not have wiring, so I figured I would give it a try. Took it out of the box ... mounting was simple ... and the light is great - - it is significantly brighter than any other solar powered light I have seen or tried. I am extremely happy with it ... GREAT PRODUCT!
