Evo15 Solar Pir Utility Light
The Evo15 Solar PIR Utility Light is a real game-changer for the budget end of the solar security light and solar shed light market. Look no further if you’re looking for a compact solar sensor light for under £20 that is easy to install and exceeds expectation.
How does it work?
During the day the Evo15's solar panel charges its internal battery giving it the power it needs to light after dark. After dark the Evo15 will activate as soon as it detects motion and turns off 25 seconds after motion stops. At dawn the Evo15 stops activating and starts charging again ready for the night ahead.
Using the Evo15 as a solar security light
Simply position your Evo15 outside and locate the solar panel in an unobstructed location. The Evo15 will light up after dark as soon as it detects motion and turn off 25 seconds after motion stops.
Using the Evo15 as a solar shed light
Install your Evo15 inside your shed and position the solar panel outside in an unobstructed location (usually on top of your shed). When you enter your shed the Evo15 will light up automatically and turn off automatically 25 seconds after you leave.
How waterproof is the Evo15 Solar PIR Utility Light?
The Evo15 is rated IP44 and is designed for outdoor use in locations that offer some cover and aren’t overly exposed. Unlike cheaper imitations of this light, the Evo15 incorporates key upgrades which enhance waterproofing. These include a rubber collar, a rubber shield behind the back plate and a redesigned solar panel jack which creates a waterproof connection when plugged into the light.
How do I install it?
The Evo15 Solar PIR Utility Light is very easy to install in comparison with mains powered security lights. The box contains the light unit a solar panel connected to 4.8m of cable. Before beginning your installation is worth making sure that there is a suitable solar panel location within 4.8m of where you intend to situate your light.
- Position the solar panel and mark the holes
- Drill holes, and screw panel into place
- Position light within 4.8m of panel and mark holes
- Drill holes and screw mounting band into place
- Clip light into mounting band
- Connect solar panel cable to light and turn on

Outer - Strong padded envelope.
Inner - Standard cardboard box.
Good quality hard plastic body.
Simple but effective mounting bracket.
We have had one of these lights in use since December 2008 and it is still going strong. We use it to light a dark alley between the house, the garage and a tall wooden gate. The light given is plenty to ensure that we don't step on a hedgehog or put our hands on a big furry spider when trying to unbolt the gate!
The solar panel simply sits on the flat garage roof. A matter of minutes to screw the bracket for the lamp and P.I.R. unit to the wall.
We have now obtained a second unit which is in use lighting the patio, not good for reading at night, but excellent for picking a safe route between the patio pots. One surprising thing, in 2008 it cost £24.46, now it's only £16.79.
Easy to setup, effective light when you don't want to blind your neighbours with a 500W Halogen lamp or would have a challenge to cable up a mains powered lamp.
It is motion sensitive so helps me to find keys etc when dark.
It has a long enough cable to site the solar panel (which tilts and rotates) a fair distance from the light for
the best access to the suns rays to charge it.
I have just bought another for my shed.
I would not recommend this for too large an area as it doesn't give off
However it is perfect to light small areas such as a porch or shed.
Update Feb 2013: still working even though the 2 I bought have not worked when there is little direct sunlight over the winter (which is to be expected I guess)
I found it best to switch them off to allow the little sunlight they got to recharge the batteries enough to work ok and they a 're working fine again now.
update Jan 2014 : both lights are still working fine. Considering the small amount of sunshine they have received, this is still impressive...
Update April 2015: these are still working well and have been since my last update :-)
It comes with screws and rawlplugs for fixing both the light unit and solar panel into walls or woodwork. We mounted ours on the wall of the house about 3m up so that the sensor had a decent line of sight. The sensor is fixed but has a decent angle of coverage from its elevated position on the house.
I strongly advise anyone purchasing to make a paper template for use when drilling. There isn't one supplied but it is simple to do and saves a lot of messing about.
Tools needed are a no.6 masonry drill bit, a hammer drill, a hammer, phillips-head (cross head) screwdriver, a decent ladder (someone else to support the ladder for any great height).
For a tidy finish you will also need some cable clips for the solar panel wire. In total it took about an hour to install.
They have a 15 LED lamp and sensor console, the LED lamps in a moveable array which attatches to the wall via a two screw clip, and a 10' wire leading to the solar panel, again on a gimbal meaning it can be mounted to and surface with three screws, and rotated to face the sun.
Direct light works best for these but they do charge on overcast days too, just don't mount the panel in deep shadow.
The lamp comes on via the sensor (it can be turned off via an easy switch underneath the round white sensor) and stays on for 25 seconds.
The lamps are instantly bright, give great coverage, lighting a 25' garden with enough light to see your way around, underneath the lamp is a much brighter focused beam, with a crisp white glow.
The sensor picks up movement at about 15' though sometimes more than his, and as the lamps are LED they use so little power that one good afternoon of sun has kept ours going for a month before now.
These really are great, the same model was sold at a certain upmarket dept store or £25 this month!
And at the price they are here you really can't go wrong :)
If you have dogs these are great to mount around the garden so you can keep track of where s/he has been as the light is sensitive enough I pick up a terrier or a cat!
And of course it's Eco friendly and long lasting. One of ours has been in use for three years now!
