Amazon.com, you will find many different types of light motion detectors or light motion sensors. There are some major differences between the different types of lights and the situations in which they are best used so, let’s go over the different types in this report and see which one may suit your needs. Let’s start with the light motion detectors that are used outdoors first.
There is no doubt, the expense of having to install an electrical outlet is not in the budget for many families so, often times, people are looking for a wireless option that uses batteries and can be installed without the expense of an electrician. With that in mind, there are some great values available to most people.
After looking at several models on the market, the Dorcy 41-1071 LED Wireless Motion Sensor Flood-Lite seems to be one of the top winners according to testimonials on Amazons site. This light motion detector features 160 lumens of light. Now, you may ask, what the heck is a lumen? I could take the time to describe this scientifically but the information from the article “HOW TO DETERMINE HOW MANY LUMENS YOU MAY NEED FROM AN LED LIGHT” may help for those who don’t have the time to study the physics of lumens.
The Dorcy uses three D cell batteries and with average use, can last over a year without having to change the batteries. The 41-1071 model has a sophisticated photo sensor and motion sensor technologies that are used together with a brightness control and variable timer. With such great technology, the lite will only turn on when it becomes dark and motion is detected. What really helps with the battery life is that you have control when the light turns off after it has been initiated. Based on your selection, the light will turn off in thirty seconds up to two minutes.
This model comes with mounting brackets to put outside the home.
