Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Lights are bright enough and the sensors cover a large area. They are easy to install and setup But then it rains and the sensors fill with rain water. I bought 3 of these and 2 filled with rain. Save yourself some time and purchase $4 worth of caulk and seal them.

Bright LED: The Maxsa solar-powered, motion-activated security light provides bright illumination to entryways, walkways, sheds, patios, balconies, decks, steps, garages, driveways, carports, and backyard and farm sheds, and other places where electricity is not available or where you don't want to run power wires. The light automatically turns on when motion is detected at night for security, safety and convenience.

Dual Heads: The security light has dual adjustable heads, each with 4 LEDs. The heads can be independently adjusted so you can aim the light wherever you want.

Solar Powered: The 4.7 x 4.7-inch solar panel charges the three built-in 1.2-volt, "AA" Ni-MH rechargeable batteries to give you light when it's needed. A built-in circuit protector helps prevent overcharging or discharge of the batteries. The light can activate up to 150 times when on for 1 minute at a time for a total of 2-1/2 hours. The panel comes with a 9-foot cable to enable you to mount the panel in the ideal location for maximum sunshine.

Motion Sensor: The adjustable motion sensor detects motion up to 25' away within a 180-degree detection area.

Adjustment Panel: The security light has three rotary dials that allow you to adjust the duration of the light when activated, the motion sensitivity, and the LUX (daylight sensitivity).

Weatherproof: The durable weatherproof housing protects the solar panel and security light when mounted outdoors. It has an IP44 weatherproof rating.
