Solar Floodlight

solarsensor_1.jpgHave a patio or entryway that needs lighting but isn’t hardwired? A motion-and heat-sensing solar floodlight might be the solution. This maintenance-free security light uses solar energy to power its 15watt halogen bulb.

The light works for approximately 2 weeks without ANY sunlight (at an average of eight 30-second light intervals each night)! A built-in motion and heat sensor turns the light on for people, but not for swaying tree branches. A 14-foot cable between the solar panel and the light lets you place the security light where you need it, while allowing the solar panel to be installed facing the sun.
