Product Description

The Eye Solar Security Light
Eye Solar Panel
Streamline solar panel

.

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.

I ordered the Solar Centre eye because the lamp unit could be mounted to floodlight the garden, with the sensor placed on the garage wall approaching the garden. The solar panel is elsewhere, attached to an upper floor dormer and angled at the sun but reachable from the window for periodic cleaning. Imagine the tedium of getting out the ladders every year to do this.

Unlike most of these lamps, which turn off in seconds, this eye has been set to stay lit for 10 minutes, long enough to give the dog a brief turn round the lawn before bed (dogbed) time, or to bring in the washing without needing braille clothes pegs.

We have not been disappointed. The kit seems well made, with rainproof looking joints and seams. Unlike my previous solar forays, I felt no urge to dismantle it and smear silicon round the joints after taking it out of the box. The instructions are written in your actual English, not by some techie in Guangdong province.

Summer is of course the season when thoughts turn to the sun, and what it can do for us. The real test will be winter; how well will the unit weather? Will the solar panel be able to absorb and store enough energy on short grey winter days to function sufficiently for the long dark evenings ahead? Ask me this in February.

I took the risk of buying this unit before any reviews had been posted because I had heard that the Solar Centre was a reputable and a knowledgeable supplier, not just a box-shifter. This was confirmed for me when I contacted them with a query about setting the timer. They were helpful.

For the money, I suspect this is the best solar light you can buy if you want something with the power of a mains lamp without the expense of an electrician

We wanted an easy to install solar-powered light to illuminate the car park thus helping our clients during the darker evenings without the hassle and expense of running mains leads to a floodlight and sensor.
The Eye Solar was easy to install and with the extended cables allowed us to mount the lamp and sensor facing West but the solar panel facing South thus giving it maximum charging time. The LED lamp is bright enough to illuminate the car park and the adjustable timer allows us to ensure that it is on for neither too short nor too long a period. Overall an excellent purchase.

I had bought several solar products from Solar Centre already which I was very pleased with so was very interested when I saw this light. The light was packaged well and delivered on time. My husband found it very easy to mount on our outside wall and easy to set up also. Its SO BRIGHT! excellent value for a solar light. You can also set the time that the light stays on for, which gives us enough time to exit our car, lock it and see clearly to the house, which is what we wanted.

They're great (very bright) when they are working, but annoyingly 3 of the 5 I've bought over a 2 year period have had one component or another fail within 18 months. One came not working & was returned for a refund, 2 are still working & two have been binned.

I first purchased some of your PAVERLIGHTS and I was genuinely surprised at how really bright they were and how long they stayed on for ; (from dusk 'till dawn), so much so that when I saw the "eye" security light for sale I had no hesitation in ordering one and BOY AM I IMPRESSED!! I bought the £45 model which has 42 LED's ,and which I would say, is equal to a similarly sized mains light.It was extremely easy to install (I fitted it completely in about 30 mins. or less) and it is absolutely brilliant in every way! It lights the whole driveway up for around half a minute, although I know it can be set from just a few secs. up to about 10 mins.. It looks good whilst not being overly obtrusive and I am recommending it to all my friends and family! Thanks once again for a great product at a great price! Kind regards,Tony.

The Solar Centre Eye Solar Security Light
I connected up the eye (very easy to do) on a totally overcast afternoon - quite dark clouds, no sign of the sun at all. I read the very easy to follow instructions about setting the time the light would be on for and how dark it would be when the light would come on. But as it was so overcast I wasn't hopeful that it would work that evening. But the "Eye" worked really well that night, exactly as the instructions had said it would. Despite a complete lack of direct sunshine since then, it continues to work well.
I've bought a few lights from the Solar Centre and every time they have delivered the items very quickly.

I let the cell charge on a table in the back door for several days and put the movement sensor so it would detect when we went outside at night. All worked well, it was operating at 100% from the first night after about a 4 hour charge.

I installed all three components into wood so it was quite easy although I'll need some cable clips to tidy the wires up.

In practice it works well. It's very bright and would illuminate our driveway and most of the front garden pretty well. The ideal thing about it is: it doesn't cost us anything to run so I've set the timer to stay on longer - better deterrent.
