Left in the Dark? Get a Cordless Motion Activated Light Beth Snyder March 19, 2011 I’m cheating a little…I actually own two of these, so I can absolutely tell you how fabulous they are without having to guess. Our garage took a direct lightning hit a few years ago, and while it thankfully didn’t cause a fire or any real damage, it did take out the porch light. Unfortunately, it’s on a three-way switch, and fixing it is beyond my simple electrician capabilities. Sure, I could’ve hired an electrician, but who can afford that? Then I saw these. They are easily mounted on almost any surface using just two screws (it took me longer to set up the ladder than to hang the lights), or you can set them somewhere on a flat surface. The light will spin 360 degrees in its base, and has a vertical tilt of about 100 degrees. Each one has a motion sensor that depending on how it is positioned will detect movement up to 30 feet away. They each also have a light sensor so they know not to turn on during the day. When the motion sensor is tripped, the light will turn on for 30 seconds unless there is additional movement. Each one requires four C batteries (not included) for up to 150 hours of operation, and the LEDs are rated to last up to 100,000 hours. They are cordless and weatherproof, so they are ideal for outdoor use. I chose to mount mine under the eaves of the house and garage to protect them from some of the elements, but they’ve lasted the winter with no issues whatsoever. Each one measures 6″ x 6″ x 5″ and weighs about 1 1/2 pounds. You can pick them up for $39.95 US each. Source: Craziest Gadgets Share This With The World!
