Motion Sensor Lights – On When You Need Them.
Having outside security lighting that is permanently on is not a sensible option for most homes.

animal, a moving vehicle, and sometimes also the movement of trees and
shrubs in the wind.
This can mean your lighting being illuminated when you don’t want it
On a breezy night your motion sensor lighting could be
continually switching on and off. Annoying, and not very good for
security because you probably would soon come to ignore it.

area you need, but does not get triggered by waving plant life. (As a
last resort you may want to trim back your plants.)
choose lights that have a sensor that senses body heat as well as
movement. These will only operate when a human, or animal, enters their
field of detection.
Most motion detector lights allow you to
choose the duration of illumination after movement ceases. Many also
incorporate a photocell so the lamp is inactive in daylight hours.
Motion activated lights do not use a large amount of power, because they are not

then solar security lights may be an option for you.
motion activated lighting comes in a variety of styles and types. From
the double lamp floodlight style to the carriage lamp design, suitable

moving, the light comes on.
Motion sensor lighting can also be a
blessing if you have members of your family who consistently forget to
turn off lights.

left burning in empty rooms.

detector which is usually installed close to a door.
