Overview: The MAXSA Solar Motion-Activated Security Light
(item # 40227) is powered by the supplied external Solar Panel and is
activated by passive infrared motion sensors. The Solar Motion-Activate Wedge Light is easy to install, and perfect for decks, patios, balconies, entrance doors, garages, driveways, carports, walkways,
backyards, farm sheds, pool areas, and stairs.
External Solar Panel: The supplied external Solar Panel
charges through the day and coverts direct sunlight to electricity to charge the
battery inside the Security Light. The Solar Panel connects to the Security
Light via its attached 15' power cord. The Solar Panel features a durable
weatherproof housing to protect it in all weather conditions. The Solar Panel
has an adjustable head so it can mounted either on a flat or angled surface or
rooftop. The Solar Panel is mounted using the supplied mounting screws and
wall-anchors. The Solar Panel should be mounted in an area where it can receive
6-8 hours of daylight per day.
Note: Before its initial use, the MAXSA 40227 should be
left in the direct sunlight to charge for three days.
Motion Activated Security Light: Using the stored energy
from the connected Solar Panel, the 80 Super Bright LEDs inside the Security
Light turn on automatically at night when motion is detected. The Security
Light's 80 Super Bright LEDs illuminates a broad coverage area at 250 total lumens. When the battery is fully charged, this Solar Security Light can
activate up to 180 30-second intervals. The Security Light features a swivel head which
allows the lamp to rotate 360 degrees and angle up/down or left/right. The
Motion Activated Solar Security Light features the following adjustment
- Time Period Adjustment: The time period control sets
the duration that the Solar Security Light will be illuminated when
activated. The time period is adjustable over a range of 10 seconds to 1
- Motion Sensor Adjustment: The sensitivity of the
motion sensor of this Solar Security Light will be affected by temperature.
The Security Light's motion sensor has a field of vision of 120 degrees at a
distance of 25 feet, when the surrounding temperature is 75 degrees. The cooler the temperature the more sensitive the motion sensor will become.
Use this adjustment to set the sensitivity of the motion sensor to
compensate for environmental temperature changes.
- Light Level Adjustment: The LUX dial controls
the natural light level that initiates operation and prevents the Security
Light from operating during daylight hours.
Note: The LED lights in the Solar Security Light (40227) will last
up to 30,000 hours and should never need replacement.
Rechargeable Batteries: Included in the Security
Light are three AAA 2100mAh Nickel-Metal Hydride (NiMH) rechargeable batteries. These batteries should last for
approximately 3 years.
