Features

Overview: The MAXSA motion-activated outdoor light (model # 40242) helps you improve the safety and security of your family and your home by providing you light when and where you need it most. It is perfect for power outages or simply dark areas in and around your home. Its excellent for homes with young children or the elderly. The MAXSA motion-activated outdoor light is fully weatherproof and battery powered (requires no electricity).

4 LED Lights: The MAXSA motion-activated outdoor light is equipped with four bright white LED bulbs to illuminate a up to 150'. The four brilliant LEDs will light your way, preventing you from falling down stairs or tripping over objects. Its great for lighting up those dark areas in and outside your home.

Note: The LED bulbs will last approximately 30,000 hours.

Adjustable Angle: The MAXSA motion-activated outdoor light (model # 40242) rotates in 2-directions, allowing you to aim it where light is most needed.

Motion Sensor: The motion-activated outdoor light's front-panel motion sensor turns the four LED lights on automatically when motion is detected. The motion sensor has a detection area of approximately 25' within a 100° angle of the sensor. The LED lights will remain on as long as motion continues to be detected. The lights will remain on for approximately 40 seconds after the last detected movement. If a movement is detected while the lights are on, the light duration will reset and remain on for another 40 seconds.

Note: The sensor is more sensitive to movement across the detection area than movement directly towards or away from the sensor.

Light Sensor: The motion-activated outdoor light (model # 40242) features an integrated light-sensor which activates the unit at dusk to conserve battery power.

Weatherproof: The MAXSA motion-activated outdoor light is fully weatherproof and can be used either indoors or outdoors. It can be used outdoors for steps, doors, walkways, porches, gates, sheds, garages, and decks. It can be used indoors for hallways, stairways, closets, and bathrooms.

Mounting: The motion-activated outdoor light includes a mounting bracket, self-adhesive mounting pad, and two mounting screws for simple installation. It can be mounted on a wall or simply placed on the ground. Ideally the motion-activated outdoor light should be mounted 6-8' above the detection area.

Note: The unit should not be located near light sources, reflective surfaces, or heated devices. You should also install the motion-activated outdoor light at least 25' away from the road, because passing cars might activate the light.

Battery Powered: The MAXSA motion-activated outdoor light is powered by four "D" batteries (sold separately). No wiring is needed.

Note: Batteries should last approximately 12 months depending on usage.

Quick impressions from the Lab

Comment by Jude Director, Digital Imaging,

Amazingly Bright

Written by Jude, Director, Digital Imaging, on 8/13/2013 2:21:00 PM

I recently got one of these for my in-laws. They live in a walk up apartment and the top of the stairs are dimly lit and as they are both in their 80's, their eyesight is not what it used to be. I placed this on the wall using the mounting bracket that is included and had it out of the box and working in under 15 minutes.

I couldn't believe how bright the Maxsa was. Since it activates on motion I don't have to worry about them turning on the light to see; they just start up or down the stairs and the light illuminates the way. The batteries are said to last one year under normal use, so I will monitor to see what they do.

This was an easy and inexpensive way for my wife to have peace of mind.

Maxsa Battery-powered Outdoor Light

Written By Me, St. Louis on Tuesday, October 04, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Ordered two and one did not have back plate or screws. Not terribly bright and no adjustment for length of time on or motion sensitivity. I doubt the thin plastic back-plate the light attached to will last more than a year.
