Recommended Applications

The MB982 from Mr. Beams is a battery-powered, wireless, motion-sensor LED ceiling light that requires no wiring. Simply insert batteries and attach to any surface. A built-in photocell acts as a dusk to dawn sensor activating the motion sensor only after the sun has set or in a fairly dark room. These are fantastic bright indoor and outdoor lights for closets, stairways, attics, basements, utility rooms, porches, sheds, garages or showers. The MB982 is weatherproof for year-round illumination. Attach these ceiling lights anywhere in minutes without an electrician.

Mr. Beams LED lights provide indoor and outdoor lighting solutions where you need them most. Intelligent motion-sensors activate battery-operated LED lights for hands-free lighting. All units are IP44 rated, which means the weatherproof design will satisfy both indoor and outdoor LED light applications. All Mr. Beams LED lights install easily--no wiring, no electricians--so you can be assured of quality LED lighting anywhere.

Tips on Operation

The MB982 has a photocell inside that activates the LED when it is somewhat dark to conserve battery life. This is often referred to as a "dusk to dawn" sensor because if it is used outdoors, it will start to work early in the evening through to the morning when it starts to get light out. When installed indoors the MB982 should be installed in a space that is fairly dark. It does not have to be complete darkness as the light sensor will enable the light if the detected light level is low (with a light intensity below about 3.5 lux at the light).

To test the MB982 before installation or at any time, it's recommended to put fresh batteries in and take it into a dark room. Leave the room to avoid your motion retriggering it. The light should shut off after a minute or two (the motion sensor may need time to settle immediately after putting the batteries in). When you walk into the room, the motion sensor should trigger turning the light on.

What's in the Box

2 x Mr. Beams MB980 motion sensor LED ceiling light, 2 mounting plates, 4 screws, 4 mounting anchors, and user manual.

This is a great little light except for the fact that the light will only go on in complete darkness, as per the instructions in bold type. I wanted to use it in a bathroom, however the lack of total darkness and the ambient lighting over my bath tub, even with the shower curtain closed, prevented it from triggering on

I solved this problem by modifying the unit's photocell which is located beneath the semi-transparent dome. Invert the unit on a soft cloth so as not to scratch the lens. Remove the "guts" of the unit by carefully releasing each of the four snap clips, adjacent to the batteries. This in effect removes the exterior case from the batteries and circuit board.

If you examine the circuit board, you will notice two components that sit below the milky dome. One is the circular motion detector and it has a small square window. The other adjacent component is the photocell which detects the ambient light level. It sits closer to the circuit board with a back and forth grid like element on its top.

This photocell must be completely isolated from receiving any light. Using black vinyl electrical tape, I cut small pieces of tape and placed them around the bottom of the photocell to cut off any light passing up through the circuit board and reaching the sensor. I even slid a small piece below the photocell, between its two leads just to be sure. Next I fashioned a small cylinder of tape just large enough to fit around the photocell. After closing off one end, I slid it over the photocell, kind of like a little hat and secured it into place.

Technically the photocell will now present only a small resistance to the circuit even in bright light. Assemble the unit taking care to position the milky dome back over the motion sensor and the photocell.

Mine now triggers on perfectly regardless of the ambient light in the bathroom when I stand in the bathtub to take a shower.

Quick Fix - Thanks for all of the comments and ideas. The light sensor can also be completely removed without any long-term effects, as long as it is done carefully and the motion sensor is not damaged. We have instructions and a photo if anyone is interested - just email info@mrbeams.com. Takes about 3 minutes. We also just launched the new Mr. Beams website and there are many instructional videos and brightness comparisons.

When I moved in to my new house, I was disappointed to find that the master shower was completely enclosed and had NO LIGHTS!! I spent months trying to find a viable, waterproof LED to mount in there, and this fit the bill perfectly. At first, I was skeptical that 1 bulb could provide enough light for an entire shower stall, but this thing is great! I was even able to use double sided exterior mounting tape to fasten it to the ceiling instead of having to drill through my tile. if you are looking for a cheap and easy method to install some lighting in your shower, this is the way to go. 100% satisfied!!

Love these.
I bought 2.
One for my front porch and one for the stairs leading to the basement.
Motion sensor detects movement and turns on just when I need it.
The outside light worked through all kinds of cold and snowy weather all winter.
Sheds good light on the stairway, from the ceiling.

We are very happy with this light which we are using in a small closet. Serves our purpose and saves a call from the electrician.

This light works better than expected. I use to light the stairs going to the basement. Very sensitive and a very bright light. I am going to order another one.

Had one for about a year when the motion sensor stopped sensing!
It just stayed on all the time. Tried fresh batteries, still didnt work.

It was a great light while it lasted. Plenty bright enough to light up my
dark hallway, and the light would stay on long enough for me to navigate around.

There are no adjustments or switches at all on this model.
When you put the batteries in, it's on, when you take them out, it's off!!
Thats it!!

My other motion sensor lights (different brand) at least have controls to switch
from allways on, or automatic sensor mode, or power off.
This unit has none of that, just bare bones and basic.

I am sure, after reading all the good reviews for this unit, that I just
got a lemmon (it happens sometimes).

I am giving this model a second chance, ordered a new one. I really like this
design, and the bracket is already attached to my ceiling.
So I would rather replace it and hope for the best, then remove the bracket and
have to fill in the holes and repaint.

Since these units appear to be fairly well made, I am sure the second one will be
a good one, but if not, I will buy a different model and hopefully it will cover up
the holes left by the Mr Beam unit.

UPDATE Feb, 2012:
I did buy another one and the exact same thing happened.
Completely useless.
I have removed a star in this update due to 2 bad units.

After opening the package and unfolding the directions, I then had to read halfway down, in bold print, that the motion detector only works in near-total darkness.

A closet- fine. A dark stairway in a basement, cool. I don't know who tried to use it in a shower, but their bathroom must be dangerously dark for this to work.

Funny that that one qualifier is in bold type in the instructions, but not mentioned anywhere in the specs.

And there is no other way to turn it on.

Pretty good light. I like how it senses movement from a good distance. Wish it put out more light, but LEDs don't put out tons of light. Takes 4 C batteries. If it's a high traffic area you are going to go through batteries every two or three weeks.
