Position lights carefully so that they cover all the areas at risk. Don’t compromise your security by creating blind spots.
Make sure to select lights that work automatically and react to the conditions.
Pick lights that are weather resistant and blend in with your house style.
Mindful of this we've chosen five well recommended solar powered outdoor security lights that are simple to fit and will give years of service.
The first unit has a separate cell to capture the sunlight. This connects to the motion activated unit by 15 feet of cable. Affix the photo voltaic cell where it will absorb the most sun rays. This pattern will be useful if you must fix the light in an awkward position where it won't get direct sunshine
All featured units have motion sensor technology. So when a light comes on outside you know that you will have to investigate.
Of course these are useful for yourself coming home on a dark evening. No need to advertise the fact that you're not at home by leaving a light on all evening. Walk up your pathway and the motion sensor will illuminate the way for you.
All are waterproof to IP65 or IP67 standard.
You'll find these easy to install with no wiring other than the first one. Even that just needs pinning in place to keep it out of sight.
These products are all popular with the many thousands of folks who have purchased them. It's not a lot of money to spend for peace of mind.
Not one of them has a rating of less than 4.3 out of 5 stars. That from between almost 1 and a half thousand reviews to one unit rated at almost 12 and a half thousand reviews.
That's a lot of happy satisfied customers, comfortable with the fact that they feel that much safer.
Depending on where you live, it's important to remember that these fittings will be exposed to less sun time in the winter months. That will lessen the charging time and that may effect the brightness of the light and perhaps reduce their working time cycle.
