No gimmicks, but a good solid unit that gives a good solid light. I'll probably be buying another.
on 7 August 2015
I wanted a motion sensing light for my kitchen - which only has a one-way light switch.
Sensibly, that switch is close to the door where you can enter from outside. But, during the night, if I come downstairs to the kitchen for anything, then I enter from inside and have to walk across the kitchen to turn on the main light. This risks stubbing my toe, accidentally hitting something (or even tripping over the dog!).
This light is a great solution.
It doesn't have any gimmicks. It doesn't even have an on/off switch. It is automatically activated when the batteries are installed (which, by the way, is very easy using just a standard slotted screwdriver).
But it does sense movement well and gives off a particularly bright light for just a small LED bulb.
The light covers 10 square feet and is only activated when the ambient light is low enough to need extra light.
It is energy efficient, and the bulb is apparently expected to have a 20 year life (ample for me at my age!).
I haven't had it long enough to judge the life of batteries within it but, one useful feature it does have is that the light doesn't automatically go off if the batteries need replacing. I think that's helpful.
If you want a light that is fully adjustable for direction, sensitivity to light and sensitivity to movement, then this is not for you.
But, if you want a good quality light that does the job it was designed for very well, then I can recommend.
I am probably going to buy another for the upstairs landing.
Anyway, I hope that this review is helpful in some way when making the decision.
Thanks for reading it.
