Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sylvania 72178 Motion Activated Battery Powered Safety Light (Tools & Home Improvement)
2012...It has been almost 3 years since I purchased them. They atill work wonderful and they have endured rain, snow and cold temperatures. I highly reccommend them! 2009..I searched for weeks for a simple, reasonably priced battery operated motion detector light. Amazon.com offered the best choices for the best price and with free shipping it was a simple choice. They arrived promptly. They have just enough light to light up my back door so I can see the keyhole, and enough light to shine on my otherwise dark back steps. The light stays on for as long as there is movement, yet goes off just a few seconds after the movement stops. The three LERD lights are not blinding. The light on my steps does not go on when my car passes, yet I get out of my car and walk towards it and it goes on. This is good - I guess my car lights do not set it off. It has an excellent sense of movement meaning it senses you just far enough and at a wide angle before it switches on. So far, it has withstood very cold temperatures, rain and snow. The batteries were enclosed and working fine, so I do not have a sense of battery life yet. Although I used screws to mount these, the magnetic mounting was very secure and held tight to the metal surface. The only negative aspect was that the holes for mounting with screws are very tiny and I had difficulty finding screws to fit and it was a little difficult to screw in. A minor problem when everything else seems great.
