The Eye Solar Security Light
The Eye Solar Security Light offers mains-brightness from a fitting that can be angled in virtually any direction thanks to our innovative new mount design. The light is just 4cm thick and can be rotated 170 degrees horizontally and tilted more than 180 degrees vertically. The Eye can even be angled to provide corner lighting without the need for corner mounting. The Eye benefits from superior waterproofing both on the light unit and on our new remote digital motion sensor which also offers greater accuracy.
How does it work?
During the day the Eye Solar Security Light's solar panel charges its internal battery giving it the power it needs to light after dark. After dark the Eye will activate as soon as it detects motion. The time the Eye stays lit for is adjustable from 3 seconds to 10 minutes. At dawn the Eye stops activating and starts charging again ready for the night ahead.
How waterproof is the Eye Solar Security Light?
The Eye light unit is IP56 rated, the digital motion sensor is IP56 rated and the solar panel is IP67 rated making it among the most waterproof solar lighting units available.
What is a remote motion sensor?
Many customers have asked us to make a solar security light that has a separate PIR motion sensor rather than a sensor that is attached to the light head. A remote motion sensor gives much greater freedom when choosing your detection area.
What is a digital motion sensor and why is it better?
Our state-of-the-art digital sensor offers greater accuracy when setting your motion sensor. Digital sensors also offer superior waterproofing because they don't use dials which are more susceptible to water ingress. The digital motion sensor on the Eye has two settings, Time and Lux. Time controls the amount of time your light stays on for each time motion is detected and Lux determines how dark it needs to get before your light will start activating.
Digital Motion Sensor Settings
The Time setting has a range of between 0 and 9.
0 = 3 seconds, 1 = 30 seconds, 2 = 60 seconds, 3 = 90 seconds, 4 = 120 seconds, 5 = 180 seconds, 6 = 240 seconds, 7 = 360 seconds, 8 = 480 seconds and 9 = 600 seconds.
The Lux setting has a range of 1 - 4. 1 = 5 Lux, 2 = 15 Lux, 3 = 35 Lux, 4 = 60 Lux
How do I install it?
The Eye light unit can be installed using a short handled Phillips screwdriver without removing it from its bracket. Before you begin find the best location for your solar panel within 5 metres of where you plan to position the light. The location needs to be as south facing as possible and free from light obstructions such as buildings, trees, fences, bushes or the shadows that these create.
