This item was on sale when I purchased it. I have had issues with lighting around my property and did not want to run electrical services to the edge of my lot. These lights were easy to install to my fence panels with the provided screws and are very bright. Depending on how high off of the ground you noon these seems to effect the distance required to activate them. Ours are mounted approximately six feet from ground level and appear to activate at a range close to ten feet. I would highly recommend purchasing this product if you need lighting in specific areas of your walkways or yards.
I haven't tested these lights long enough to speak about durability, but when it comes to brightness, these 28 LEDs aren't much brighter than my 8 LEDs ones, the only difference is that they are whiter and my old ones are a little bluish. The motion sensor sometimes only works when you're very close and they only brighten a very small area. They are ok to place above entrance door to find the key hole or add several to a dark pathway, etc.
So I wanted these to light my yard in the winter months when I am taking my dog out and it is dark. I spaced them thru my yard, they would cover well, but they only stay on a minute at most. I make sure 2 turn on when I go outside, then when I get to the other side of the yard (not that big, a minute or so), the first one or two have already turned off. I have one that would work as a nightlight as it gets very low, very quickly (5 minutes outside). I've tried to turn that one to insure it gets as much of a charge during the day as possible, doesn't help much. I wonder if these batteries were fully charged when sent to me.
Normally the day I receive any package from Amazon I got an email from the company that sent it to me. That email is usually a request to rate it before I even get to try it. I was very happy that did not happen with this product. IDK when I we sent an email for a request but it's been a few weeks and I haven't had the time. money well spent in my opinion. Although I have the skills to run wire and put spotlights in anywhere in my yard I chose to use these out of pure laziness. they do what I need them to do. Provide enough light so I don't walk into something in my backyard. The motion sensor works very well two. I have two dogs that roam the yard at night and I always have a general idea of where they are based upon the lights turning on.
liked these so much ordered 3 sets of them (my deck is almost 50 feet wide). i put them lower on posts so they wouldn't be visible from the deck side of my yard but they do their job perfectly from the lawn side of my yard. they light up almost immediately when the sensor is tripped and the light they give off is fantastic. having these extend backyard play time with the convenience of not having to flip a switch or change batteries. would highly recommend these to anyone looking for some solar lights.
I purchased these to illuminate stairs for my elderly parents and their ancient dogs. The motion sensors are immediate, and the lights are (cool white) bright. Their stairs are now totally brightly lit at night, as needed. They light up at the slightest motion nearby. And go off within a reasonable time. Installation was so easy. Just 2 wood screws (included) to mount them on wood. Easily use other appropriate fasteners on other surfaces. I mounted these on a south facing surface to be able to charge. Make sure to mount these so that they have access to the sun to charge. These lights are a very cost effective solution for illuminating areas which have no reasonable electrical access. Free energy from the sun, and bright, white lighting in the night. A totally win-win situation, at a very sensible price.
Bought this for my front yard so this works for nighttime and has been great for our Amazon delivery folks . I had a full set setup exactly for the outdoors and my toddler seem to like it especially when she walks in to one of the hallways and there is no light present unless we turn the lights on. So I decided to get another set and leave it next to the window in that hallway . One of these days we had a power outage which lasted for 10days and I ordered another set and had two of them for each room one for bedroom and another for bathroom. Best part is that my toddler would carry these around when she wants to walk around after sunset and she did drop it a few times and they have survived. In the mornings we would keep them all next to the window and in the evenings they were deployed so that it turns on when we wave or walk in that direction. In shot after our power was restored we have two sets of these still inside the house sitting next to the window not screwed and they work well in all the hallways so kids are not scared walking from one room to other in the dark. I can see my husband taking it for working under the sink or basements instead of our usual flashlight as we don't have to worry about it getting wet or dirty and it is a bit rough and tough so we don't have to worry of kids carrying them either.This is a must have in every house as they can be a good replacement for flashlights and they have never died on us as it would turn on only when we moved so in a way it works only when needed and they turn off .we got used to walking around the house without using any switches during outage and when we had electricity back we were kind of missing using them so we put them back in all the hallways (we have lot of sunlight in every hallway during the day ).
Have purchased a set of 4 at first. Installed it on my outside fence around the property. After using it for over a month, I purchased 40 more. I use this product at my farm in the Philippine Island. Even in the rainy season, it has not failed. I plan on purchasing another 16. It is bright, and no issue with the sensors. I highly recommend this product to anyone.
These things are awesome! im glad i got a 4 pack! they are literally handy just about anywhere to put over door entrances, especially for garden sheds or outdoor garages/back porches...even fenceposts! will light up a much larger area than expected, while you wouldnt want to rely on it to work on your car or anything, its more than enough light to see your path and illuminate everything in a 20' area or so! no wires, batteries or screws required!
Perfect addition to my backyard. I currently rent and wanted to add lighting to the backyard so when I let the pup out at night I can see her and any possible creatures that might be lurking. I have the small border solar lights around the fence but that didn’t illuminate enough of the yard as I wanted. These are small but packing a lot of light power. The motion detector is my favorite feature this way when she’s in the house I don’t have to see the lights beaming when not necessary. I like the bright white light to light up the yard but if you are going for more of an ambience, cozy back yard feel, then I would go with a soft white/yellow bulb. Super easy to install (2 small screws), did it alone without help. When I leave this place I’m taking them with me!
I bought these to put on some exterior stairs that are used a night occasionally. For a one story run I used three, one at the bottom, one in the middle, one at the top. They turn on in succession as you go up or down, and usually a few feet before you reach them (they're mounted just below the stairway railing). They light is very white and very bright. This won't replace a motion flood light but will do an admirable job for the price and size. Its only been a month or so but we've had no issues and they're fully exposed to the elements - so below freezing, rain, snow, and direct sun (probably hasn't been above 45 yet however). I wouldn't say that they stay on for a good amount of time....I'd say its just enough (maybe 30sec?) and definitely not long - if you're trying to use this to light your grilling area while you grill....I don't think this is the right product.
Bought this to light up an exterior stairwell that would be super annoying to install a light switch. These solar powered out door lights are AMAZON-AMAZING. You should make sure it sits outside in the sunlight for 8 hours prior to using, so it builds up a charge and then watch out nelly. These have a small imperceptible spot that when it falls dark turns on, much like the night light you install in a bathroom for you kids figuring one night they will wake up and need to stumble into the bathroom to go pee but really the only time it that scenario ever happens is when the power goes out and you're cursing the night light because it's not solar powered like these suckers, no.... it's electric and you stub your toe. To clarify. these are solar powered and work like they should, plus their light weight so it doesn't take Thor's magic hammer to put them up.
I figured that buying and installing solar lights in the middle of an Alaska winter was a fool's errand, but this price was low enough for me to give it a shot. I'm fairly certain these lights were not designed for my weather and sunlight conditions, but I'm happy to report that they have been working reliably in below zero Fahrenheit temperatures (-40 yesterday) and with only a few hours of low-on-the horizon sunlight. That, combined with the price, earns them 5 stars. Not surprisingly, they seemed bit dim when the temperature bottomed out, but they're brighter this morning as the temperature has risen. I have them in place for security and not to light up the driveway and yard, so that's fine. I really just want to know if someone's in the driveway and to let them know we're alert. I notice the light installed at the end of the driveway comes on every time a car passes, so it's getting more use. It lasts all the long night and, by morning, is just as bright as the others that don't turn on nearly as often. Snow does collect on the panel. I'll probably turn at least couple of them 90 degrees to make the solar panel vertical to discourage snow buildup and to accommodate for the fact that the sun won't be overhead for a few more months. Before I bought these lights, I looked for reviews about how they worked in winter conditions. There weren't many, so here's one. If you're in the north and are wondering if they'll work in winter, consider these--keeping in mind that they weren't designed for Alaska.
These were an excellent price for such a useful light I am using these to provide security and safety light to my front walkway They respond quickly and stay on for about 1/2 minute or so after there is no more motion I bought a 4 pack for the front walk but so far have only installed 2 because that seems to be enough light for my front walk, I will probably use the other 2 for for my RV There must be a photo cell or something because they don't come on during the day. The lithium battery lasts all night long whether I get sunshine or not. The on off switch is recessed and can only be activated with a needle or the key they included The only draw back is the mounting screws are a bit small for my use, and I wish it came with 3M mounting tape for areas you don't want to drill holes I wish there was a quick disconnect mount (would be nice for the RV)
I can't attest to longevity as I've only had them for about a week. We just moved into a new place and got a puppy. We couldn't see what she was doing in the backyard so we got a set of these so we could keep an eye on her at night. They are bright! And the motion sensor works well too. I would say they are durable as a couple days after we installed them we had a hail storm, and they survived! We didn't use the screws provided to install. We used command strips to adhere to our plastic fence. This worked just fine. For the price, awesome!
I have one set and am very impressed. I just ordered another set and will probably order more. I have 4 set up around my house and they work great! Plenty of light and a very sensitive motion sensor. So sensitive that I have to put a small piece of tape over part of the sensor on the light at the front of the house facing the road. Its about 25 feet from the road and it lit up every time a car went by. The tape covers enough that you have to be closer to it to turn it on. I have a large yard surrounded by trees, so I'll be attaching more of them to the trees around the perimeter. Very impressed with the operation, quality, and especially the price. I'll update the review in a few months to see how the batteries handle our days of sub-zero temps this winter.
These are small but put out a lot of light. They detect motion within a wide area about 20 feet out front and 20 feet around. They only turn on at night which is what you want. We have two under the eaves of our house facing north and they don't have to be in direct sunlight to charge sufficiently. We placed them about 30-40 feet apart to have sufficient light to cover a large area. The light is so bright we had to move one higher up because it blinded us when at eye level. We have been very pleased with these lights. Negative: Wish they had a larger option. You will need several to light up a large area.
These are really nice, bright lights. Perfect for my backyard, the motion sensors help us see when we are walking but the lights turn off fairly quickly so it doesn't draw in a bunch of bugs.The price was great. My only issue was that 1 of the 4 lights does not work at all, it didn't work out of the box.
Installed 2 of these 8ft high about 14 ft apart over a dog run outdoor area 10x22 coverage works great . Well made product, complete kit has everything to mount except the masonary drill bit into stucco wall. Will mount two remaining units on other side of house. Very good product and combo pricing.
03/25/19.. Bought these to add some security lighting around my wooden fence in the back yard. These appear to be a good and easy solution for that. Follow the instructions including leaving them in the Sun for a solid eight hours before activating and mounting. I suspect some of the bad reviews are due to people not following simple instructions or maybe not even realizing that there is a hidden activation switch that you actuate with a paperclip or the supplied pin. Mounted them on the top rail of the wooden fence which is 5 to 6 feet above the ground. They spray bright light a good 10 ft out and to both sides plus another 5 ft of residual light which provides a good amount for perimeter lighting. Time will tell if they can actually stay charged from sunlight. I will definitely order another set to fill in gaps if they are still working in a couple months. I will definitely update this review if I have any issues.
Bought my first pair of these solar lights over a year ago. Installed them on my storage building and near the steps of my deck. Work great and do what they are designed for. Motion sensors detect about 12-15 feet distance. I live in the Southeast and they have withstood mild, wet winters and hot humid summers. Bought a set of four last month. Installed one on my camper, so far. Attached it with Velcro Industrial strength 4 x 1 inch tape. Tape fits perfectly on the back of the lights. Installed the Velcro tape on the same position on the back of the solar lights, I can easily switch lights, regardless of where I installed the opposite attaching Velcro tape. I install the camper light upon arrival at my site and remove it before departing the site. Highly recommend these little solar lights...they work!
These lights came on time and were packaged extremely well. I installed them on my garage fence posts for security and safety reasons. I am very pleased with these lights and would certainly buy them again if needed. They do a great job of lighting up my drive and the motion sensors work really well. I installed them without the batteries and rely on the solar power for light. I haven't had them that long so time will tell.
great item. Very bright lights . Nice, small item with black color. Nobody can see it, But when somebody wants to pass this area, this small lights will make nice bright lights. I live in California where we have a lot of sunny days. I think before to buy ,please calculate your sunny days. The motion sensor work perfect. This is 28 LED lamp.
So far I love everything about them. I still haven't put them up yet, but I have some older (less LED lights already) so that is why I decided to go with this brand. I live in a tropical island where it rains nonstop (and the light might dim, but has never stopped working) and my house sits on the back of an acre of land so I would look like a drunkard every evening from work trying to get the key inside the lock of the gate because of the darkness. I had to wait for headlights of passerby cars on the country side, which are not too many. The older light nailed to a palm tree did it. And its still doing its job. I want these to add on to the already existing one and the other for another palm tree which is close to the gate for extra illumination. And the price is great too!
I bought these lights for my mom for Christmas to light up the sidewalk between the garage and the back door. They do an excellent job! Their motion-sensing ability is super...when you walk on by, it lights right up, and during daylight hours it somehow knows not to light up. It only functions when it's dark outside, as it should. Installation was easy; the lights come with anchors and screws. I used a drill to make a hole for the anchor and screw when attaching it to aluminum siding, and just used the screws when attaching to wood. I highly recommend these lights, as they do exactly what they purport to do!
I love these lights. I first purchased them for my house playing then aground the trade and pound but now I ordered another batch, 16 for my mom's house in Puerto Rico. Walk from room to room and your path is lit. No house should be without these lights. Love the motion on/off and solar charging.
My usage of these lights is somewhat unconventional. I mounted each individual light to a plastic block approximately the same size as the base of each light. On the back of the block, I attached "soft broom hooks" which I can snap on to a horizontal rail on top of a truck camper. The lights then will provide a blanket of light around the camper @ night for security purposes as well lighting the area for safety. As far as I can tell, they work pretty well and put out a significant amount of light. For the money, they are worth it, as I had seen others at a "warehouse store" costing $40+ more per unit.
Work very well - even if the coverage is very limited. Very easy to set up. Just remember to let them charge the day before you put them up and don't forget to activate them with the needle tool included. I forgot and at first I thought they were defective. They're nice and bright and appropriately sensitive movement.
LOVE these lights!! They are solar powered and also have motion sensors so the come on automatically when movement is detected. I have mounted on my fence posts and near my back deck so I can see when I'm walking around out there at night. Also installed them for my cats, as we have a coyote problem in the area. We have a fence around a portion of our yard and I have strategically placed the lights on the outside and inside so they will come on when/if they approach my house. I hope it will alert my cats and give them time to get inside thru the cat window. They have already learned to be alerted when they come on. They are very bright a light up a big area. Would definitely purchase again.
We originally bought them for the backyard bc it is so dark and hard to pick up or play after sun goes down. they are great the kids can play into the night and we can see the dogs running and know they aren't trying to dig out. We can't wait for our backyard campouts. They are very bright, I'll try and add a picture later but we are having to move one bc it is so bright it hurts our eyes when it is on where it is placed. the only improvement is if I could somehow toggle them to stay on when we are out there. we've bought others and this was my last effort bc the others just weren't bgitht enough to matter. We ended up buying more for my husbands garden and am looking to buy more to light up the back end of the yard as well. Thank you. havent' had them a full year but if they last these are well worth the money.
The only question is "how long will they last"? I don't think these are 400 Lumens - well I am about 95% sure they are not but they are plenty bright for my needs. The photos were taken with a lit up cloudy sky but still bright none the less. The IPhone Auto ISO went to 320 w/3 lights and IS0-1000 with the one corner light. Just trying to give you an idea on how bright the phone made the photos but once again, don't get me wrong these are bright little lights, especially for being solar. They have been rained on a few times so no problem yet. Three turn off after 30 seconds and the 4th after 40. I might raise them higher but I think it helps my dogs set them off being this low. Had some battery operated Mr. Beems in that spot which were plenty bright but they cut off after only 10 seconds. Anyway, these are great lights and just still so impressed with the current era of lights in the world.
Last year, I took a chance and ordered a set, because I was unfamiliar with this type of solar light. They were so awesome that I ordered 4 more sets! The motion sensor is so sensitive that the light comes on a few feet before you reach it, and stay on for a few before turning off. My dogs can see where they’re going, and so can we! My husband installed four on our pool deck so we can swim at night. These lights survived all types of weather...rain...heat.. snow...storms and they come on every night! Even though I have 20 of these lights placed strategically throughout my yard....I will be ordering more! I don’t like to wander around in darkness, even in my own yard because of skunks, possums and other critters... but these lights make me feel safe. Plus...it’s so cool that they light your path as you walk....LOVE THESE LIGHTS!!
These are really bright and light up the dark corners of my yard really well. I'm so happy when something gets to me and I see it's just what it was advertised it was. No disappointments. These solar motion lights are perfect to use anywhere there's some sun in the day time. From ten feet away they come on and stay on a good amount of time. I used super sticky tape because they so lightweight. I'm ordering more right now for my side yards. I'll add pictures tomorrow if I remember.
For my application, my sidewalk was extremely dark at night. I placed four of these lights on my fence adjacent to the sidewalk. They worked excellently providing ample light as the motion sensor picked up movement. The only wish is for each light to remain on for another 30 Sec.
We absolutely love these lights! They light up our long dark drive way. The only thing is, i wish it could stay lit all the time and not just on motion detection. Otherwise. I love these!
I bought these because living out in the country we have skunks and when dog meets skunk I need to give my dogs a shower and usually it's around midnight. I read that skunks don't like lights so I mounted these on my back fence and these light trigger when they are supposed to and fingers crossed we haven't had any skunk encounters since putting up the lights. I really like them and I was just able to zip tie them to the cyclone fence and they were ready to go.
Holy Cow I did not expect much from these but they are GREAT! $29/light and they do exactly what they say. We put them up about 10 feet in trees along our long driveway and even in dappled light under the tree canopy they charge enough to turn on every time we drive past them at night. They say they have a 100 ft radius and I believe it because like I said, our cars are decently far away from them and they pick up the motion. Very bright for how small they are too. Totally bright enough to light up the ground underneath them from 10 ft up like daylight. And we had a huge storm after they'd been up a few days and the rain didn't phase them one bit so they seem to be totally weatherproof. I'm buying more for the house, garage, whatever I need motion lights for. Can't recommend highly enough!
These lights are great! They're so bright and I'll be buying another set of 4 for the other two sides of the house. I also like their versatility of installation, I've been able to orient them to best suit the area I'm putting them.
These lights work perfectly for what I need. They are extremely bright as well as energy saving. I am now able to light up my backyard even where there is not electricity.
Excellent lighting!! And super bright. Easily picks up motion and it was a four pack but I have only put up 2 in my back yard around my garden so I can see to water when getting home at night. Def with the buy!
These really do work well!...I'm impressed. I attached them to the side of my large RV with 3M VHB tape, so no holes drilled. I caution all that these are motion sensitive security lights, and they will illuminate instantly and brightly if they detect motion, so if you tend to drive at night, you must first deactivate them. I advise that you do NOT attach these high up so that you can easily reach the tiny deactivation switch located in the little hole on front of light. Each light comes with a bag of mounting screws and a very small piece of bare wire used to deactivate/activate the light...The wire has a loop built in one end...Run a string lanyard thru the wire loop and hang it inside your RV so it is quick and easy to find to turn off your lighting before you drive at night.
These arrived yesterday and I installed one on a shed about 50' from the house. We let our dogs out last night about 11:00pm (little dogs) and they activated the light. They light lit up an area about 75' X 75', very bright. These will be my go-to solar security lighting from now on.
Update: the company reached out to me and after some troubleshooting didn’t work they refunded me for the lights that were faulty. Original review: Worked great at first but after less then two months half of them have lost 75% of their brightness
These solar lights are simple to install and work great. We installed them on trees outside a rental property and it took my husband only a few minutes to screw each one in place. I recommend peeling off the film over the solar part and placing them in the sun for a day first. Then you need to use the enclosed pin to push into the tiny hole to turn them on. I walked into a dark closet with each one to make sure they worked before taking the time to install them, It is much easier that way. All 4 of them came on after only charging for a couple of hours of sunlight. They give off a good amount of light and now we can see coming up the dark driveway with lots of trees. The motion sensor detects the car at a good distance (or a person) and illuminates the area.
So I got this Tuesday, installed Wednesday, and turned on Thursday night. The parts: Screws are cheap metal. One screw snapped on install. I didn’t check the size of the light, but was surprised it was to big to mount on the side of a 4x4. The install: Doesn’t get any easier with two screws and a drill with the right size Phillips head. The light works great. Time will tell how durable and long lasting this light will be.
plenty of light
These lights are great! they light up my yard very well. they are easy to install and i also love that on/off switch in case i want to keep them shut off. I also am curious on how long the batteries will last. 5 stars all the way!!
I have purchased lights from several manufacturers over the past 18 months. These lights have performed flawlessly over summer heat and winter cold. Eventually the batteries will have to be changed, Luckily, buyers can purchase new rechargeable batteries and enjoy hassle free lights that charge from the sun and perform well. The lights are bright for the size. They turn on when a small animal , or larger comes within 10 feet. They lights turn off 15 seconds after motion has stopped.
Very, very impressed!!! I have other D battery operated motion lights at my residence, but I decided to go with these based on reviews here, as I'm tired of shelling out 15 to 20 bucks on D batteries every few months. I placed these 4 power better Solar lights on all sides of my house in areas that I've found could use some light to enter gates late at night - they have exceeded my expectations!!! These are well worth the money, as the light they produce is not only bright, but stays on for about a minute or more. Exactly, what I needed. I will buy again!
Works as advertised
The quality is good and the choice of a small insect passes in front of the working lights
Works as advertised, can't complain
Great set of solar lights. Provides a lot of bright light.
Very bright. Very sensitive.
Works great after i read directions to find on/off switch. Installed with heavy velcro which is great for portability around the RV.
Excellent, They are super bright. I love them
Like, only just installed
Works really good
I really like these lamps. They are excellent to I keep burglars at bay.
These are great. I put them on the side of an RV and they work very well, really bright.
Brighter then I thought!!!
really works good. Had them up for 6 months or so
LOVE these lights! Worth the expenditure, and never a worry. These are dependable!
Very bright. Have to get close though to trigger on.
Use these camping. Just tie to tree or set on rock. Very handy.
easy to mount bright light really like them
throws good amount of light. Time will tell on durability
These are bright and detect motion at around 15 ft. In the winter at night, they are able to detect at even double the distance! I recommend these as they are surviving the cold Michigan winter fairly well.
These solar lights are perfect -- they are VERY bright and very easy to install. I'm so glad I purchased them.
I purchased and installed these solar lights approximately 3 months ago. I have to say I'm very impressed. Very bright and still going strong.
These lights right out of the box were bright and absolutely perfect for mounting. Very bright and the motion sensor has a very good distance sensitivity. Important to remember they do not stay on but a couple of minutes but great for motion detection.
Be prepared to be blinded by the light!! Extremely bright, absolutely worth the purchase!!!
looks and works great.. bright light
At first forgot about the switch to turn them on. Now work great.
Perfect and great price!!
Awesome lights, nice and small, super bright. Work perfect.
I purchased these lights for my raised bed garden and they really are a great fit. I will be ordering another set so I can cover my entire garden. Yes they are that great. Great buy!!!
come on quickly and are very bright. Stay on for about 15-20 seconds when there is no movement they shut off. Greatest thing since sliced bread.
I installed these along my driveway and in front of my front door. They are very responsive and keep my front yard lit when I enter or exit my car. Very impressed with them.
The best lights in my opinion! Set them up about a week ago & love them & they are so bright.
These lights are very bright.Onle negative is the mounting screws-they are crap.Be prepared to use others.
works as advertised real bright
Love them. They all work and are bright enough to light up a good distance.
Great product and excellent custome service. Definitely recommend this product. will buy again.
Lighting dark areas in large yard
Bright. Works. Powers easily
Happy with these great lights!
Very easy to install (2 screws), turn on with a supplied pin, charge for the day and you have nice bright light where you want it. Works exactly as I expected. Also company reached out after purchase and offered assistance if I had any concerns or questions.
So far, so good actually I am about to purchase 4 more lights. I have a few dark spots within my yard and these work great, easy to put in place and gives enough light to take away the darkness.
Very bright light. Just what we needed to light up a dark walkway to front door.
very good for the money, I will buy more
I need more of these. House is secure
After reading the reviews I thought that I would give these lights a try and I have to say that I’m AMAZED at how bright theses little lights are. Time will tell how they stand up but so far exceeded my expectations. I’m buying some more.
Excellent lights compared to others
Very happy with the purchased!
Just got lights. All were in working order. I allready have all 8 of them installed, very easy. Will follow up in a couple days.
great for the price to easy to install in the drive way works perfect
works as advertised
