Whether you wish to brighten the darkened spaces outside your home for security reasons, illuminate the walkways to your house, or simply show-off your beautiful garden, solar powered security and motion lights may be the product for you. They are an eco-friendly way of illuminating the outside areas of your home at night, that is also cheap, easy to install, and versatile (because they are powered by the sun, they don’t need wiring, so you can hang them pretty much anywhere). Picking the right light for you can be tricky though, with loads of different models on the market, and so this review article has been written to help make your decision a bit easier.
How do solar security motion lights work though? Essentially, you hang them up around the outside of your house where they absorb sunlight during the day and convert it into energy that can be used to power LED lights at night. As for the motion part, they come with Passive Infra-Red (PIR) sensors which are configured to automatically light up when they detect any infra-red heat motion within their sensor range (and they automatically switch on at dusk and off at dawn). If there is no more movement detected for a certain period of time, they switch off of their own accord.
