Product overview

Here’s a bright idea for lighting up your outdoors. Whether you want to deter intruders from lurking outside your house, or just find your way up the driveway or path without grappling for the light switch, this is a hassle-free and efficient solution.

Covering a wide area of 10m within a 120° range, the PIR sensor will sense anything that might be moving about nearby. The light comes on automatically and turns off once movement stops.

Being solar powered makes it easy to set up, as well as cheap and environmentally friendly to use. It’s great for any spot where you can’t connect to mains power, whether that’s the back corner of your garden, a shed or marquee, or even a camping tent. It’ll charge even on an overcast day, so you won’t be caught out.

Easily hung up with the included screws, it sits parallel to the wall for light to the front. Its compact design means it’ll be subtle and unobtrusive during the day, as well as being maintenance free.

Questions and answers

q: With the IP44 rating is it really rain proof? IP 65 and 66 is for wet outside areas. The 10m distance of the light is it how far it projects to safely walk or how far away you can see the light? Thank you.
a: Yes it's fine for rain, IP66 is for pressurized water jets. 10m refers to how far away from a moving person the motion sensor will work.

q: Hi, with this solar powered device, does movement past it during daylight hours, use battery power when movement is detected. Reason. Much movement in daylight passes where desired to fit. This may reduce effective power at night when little movement should pass device. Thanks
a: This has a light meter, so it is not active during the day.

q: Does it detect motion when a car passes by in the driveway way?
a: Yes it will, as long as it in range of the sensor.

q: Sensitivity uses infrared - so does it switch on with, say, cats (is it size dependent) or moving plant branches in the wind
a: It will pick up any movement in a 10m radius.

I`ve placed these sensor lights at the front entrance of our place. ..Awesome!! Picks up at a good distance and lights up the entire stair way then lights up the front door so I`m not fumbling around in the dark. The light wont stay lit forever and that`s just great. Wrapped with this purchase.

Solar Entrance Light Review:- from New Plymouth

8 months ago


I had a dark entrance way to my garage and needed a suitable light. There was no 230 volt supply to power a light so the Trade Tested light seemed to be the answer to my dilemma. I have attached two photos of the light in place on the gutter above the garage door. It works perfectly and illuminates all of the area required. The sun effectively charges the unit and as it has a built in "ON" timer has never run flat. I would strongly recommend this light for others to use.

Bought two of these for my long drive. One lasted about one month then the other was dead after four months. Disappointed.

Rakesh Kaikohe

very effective

10 months ago


The light is bright and motion sensor performs very well. It has a wide angle and senses motion about 6 metres away at least. It also doesnt appear to go off with every stray cat that walks past either, so only really sense people and dogs. The mounting screws provided are a bit useless, make sure you drill appropriately sized pilot holes and have a size 1 phillips screw driver or you'll likely strip the head, even if you manually tiggten the screws.

Bev Northland

Solar Entrance Light with Motion Sensor

10 months ago


The main draw back is the length of time the light stays on after being activated, holds charge well but really only useful as an entrance light and not to be relied upon as direct light for any activity, unless of course you carry it around on your person. I have used it as a lantern, I do not like the angle down in it's frame, so for low down connection to fence or wall to light walking path, yes! but elevated attachment to wall and fence is blinding rather than helpful. I bought three, they are being used, one is now used in shed with no light for quick light placement manually as it hold good charge but probably would not buy again, mostly because the light duration is too short.

Good little sensor light. Glows all the time and brightens when motion is detected. I wasn't sure if I would like this set-up, but it actually is useful. When activated the light is good and bright. I have installed one either side of the back door facing each other so approaches from either direction lights at least one as well as both coming on when opening the back door. Very handy and haven't used the normal 240v outside light since. Sensitivity and timing can't be altered, but pre-sets seem about right.

I no longer have to leave my porch light on when out in the evening. This is a sure sign that you are out. This light give me enough light on my porch and to insert my key in the door lock plus light on the path when i walk to my door. As a bonus the light comes on as I drive up to my garage. I recommended this light to a friend. I installed hers on the top of her ramp so it gives good light as you approach. I will like to buy more for my backyard...hmmm later.

Purchased a couple of these lights and found them to be exactly what I wanted. Have purchased some more of them and noted that some are turning on and off for no reason. This doesn't affect the way they work as motion does still set them off. The lights are bright so are ideal around our driveway and back sheds. Great value for money.

Fantastic Whether for home or business, these Solar lights are perfect. We use them for lighting up the carport and around the campground. The fact they turn off after people are settled in is great. I also have them around the house too. Great, peaceful sleeping knowing they light up around the house if anyone is outside.

This little beauty is all you need to find your keys at the door at night time. It is low energy but effective light, without having the overkill intensity of 150w or 300w halogens glaring. Perfect illumination, and it is solar powered, LED lighting into the bargain. Excellent value!
