Reliability just might be the most important feature to look for in security lighting. The best motion light I’ve come across is the STL360Q2 by RAB Security. It isn’t so much about sensitivity, or brightness, those are all typical features.
What the RAB lights bring to the table is glitch free operation in modern electrical systems. I’ve had lights where the sensor just quits.... [Read more about this product]
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...

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...

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.

One of the things to keep in mind when you are making a product, is whether or not the things that go into it, from features to branding, are adding value for the customer. I think we can tell from the title of this one that it may be trying to dazzle us a bit. This is a light I found at Costco, and last... [Read more about this product]
If you are tired of dim security lights, then this is the light for you. With150 watts of halogen, this heavy duty security light will put out enough light to make sure you feel comfortable going out at night without all the bumbling and lurking shadows.
It has some good adjustments for sensitivity and brightness, and you will likely want to use them. This isn’t a good light to... [Read more about this product]
