Overview

Our take on the MAXSA 40227 Solar-powered LED Floodlight

Coming back home after dark, it's comforting to know that this motion-activated light will automatically turn on when you pull into your driveway. You can even set the timer so the light stays on long enough for you to negotiate a path strewn with toys and see to slip your key in the lock.

Coming back home after dark, it's comforting to know that this motion-activated light will automatically turn on when you pull into your driveway. You can even set the timer so the light stays on long enough for you to negotiate a path strewn with toys and see to slip your key in the lock.

The light is solar-powered, so you don't have to pay an electrician to hook it up or pay big electric bills. Just use the supplied cable to connect the solar panel to the floodlight. The sun's rays will charge its built-in battery so the light is ready when you need it.

I was surprised at how bright this light is, I really didn't expect this much light from a solar-powered light. So far it works great and I plan on buying another one in a few months for the other side of my house.

Features

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 settings:

  • 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 minute.
  • 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.
