Motion sensor light switches, or occupancy sensors, wire in just like a regular light switch, and are most often seen in public restrooms, but work just as well in your home, wherever your kids forget to turn the lights off when they leave, or for switching an outlet with other devices plugged in. This model turns the power on when it detects motion or the switch is pushed, and off after a predetermined... [Read more about this product]
This corded plug in motion sensor light is great when you don’t want the fuss of installing something permanent. If you have a work bench in the garage, or other occasionally used locations like shed lighting, attics, and basements where you have electricity but wiring is inconvenient, where solar powered motion lights won’t get enough light, and battery powered lights just don’t...

A couple well placed security cameras can be a great supplement to security lights. I try to keep the solutions on this site within the realm of what the average person can purchase and install, and this Logitech Alert 750e Outdoor Master Security System with Night Vision is no exception.
I’ve been anticipating the release of the 750e for a while, and now that it’s finally out, I’m... [Read more about this product]
One of the difficulties of motion lights is that they generally don’t play nicely with CFL bulbs. This socket by American Tack is an exception, which makes it an excellent choice for those who put energy efficiency as a priority.
With a compact fluorescent bulb in addition to the motion sensor, this socket becomes an excellent choice for those off the grid. It can be used indoor or outdoor,... [Read more about this product]

Not all of these lights are created equal. This light by Cooper Lighting doesn’t stand up to the competition. Being priced near seventy dollars, you would expect it to be built to...

This DrivewayPatrol Driveway Alarm is one of those ‘As seen on TV!’ products, which means the quality is questionable, but the price is outstanding due to mass production, and they are thoroughly tested. The idea is simple: just hide the motion sensor along your driveway, put the speaker unit in your home (within 400 feet), and when someone walks or drives into your driveway, you hear...

I’ve been working with a company that has a lot of vagrant issues. Each night, homeless people come shuffling away from the bars in the center of town, looking for a convenient place to bed down for the night. They leave trash everywhere, so in an effort to discourage them, the company left the lights on at night. The bums just unscrewed the lights and shattered them on the ground.
What do you... [Read more about this product]
This little plug in motion sensor light plug isn’t terribly glamorous, but it is so useful it is worth picking up a couple just to have when you need one. Use a motion sensor indoor plug for your Christmas tree, so you don’t always have to go unplug it, use it for fans, lights, radios, and other things you only tend to use while you are in the room. You can even put them on the ends of... [Read more about this product]
