Eco SMD 700 lumens Pro Solar Security LightVerified Purchase
This was almost the only solar floodlight I could find with a decent light output (700 lumens) that had a motion detector with total horizontal and vertical mechanical adjustment as well as the usual 'time on', 'sensitivity', and 'lux' (operation according to ambient light) adjustments. From previous experience I've found you do need the ability to mechanically adjust the operating position of the detector if you have a very specific area from where you want to trigger the light to reliably come on.
There are two angled metal brackets that that are fixed to the solar panel using self tapping screws into pre-drilled pilot holes. Whilst the brackets are not particularly thick they do securely support the panel. Before I screwed the brackets onto the panel I slightly enlarged the bracket holes that are used for fixing to a wall. The reason I did this was to give myself a little levelling adjustment if my wall drilled plugged holes wandered slightly from their marked positions. The brackets angle the solar panel at apx 45 degrees to the sky.
In this instance the light was going on a south facing wall, which is really the most reliable option for solar powering especially during British winter times. The Solar panel comes with a fixed 5 metre cable that screw locks into a connector on a short cable coming from the light casing. Looking at the FAQ it looks like the Solar Centre can supply 5 metre extension cables if the light itself needs to be away from a south facing wall. The light is rated to the IP56 standard that should give decent protection against rain water ingress.
The light bracket has two oval shaped slots for securing it to a wall allowing you a bit of final levelling adjustment. The easiest option for fitting the bracket is to first remove it from the light housing by undoing the two holding bolts. Take care not to loose the two washers with each bolt, one of them is a spring washer on the inner side of the bracket that goes against the bolt threaded socket on the light. The light housing seems pretty well constructed with weather protection to prevent water getting inside the unit. On its base is a water protected toggle on-off switch. Once you have everything fixed and plugged together, leave this switch off for 3 or 4 days for the battery inside the light to fully charge up. Currently the rechargeable battery is not replaceable. It's always difficult to assess how long a life any rechargeable will have, but given recent improvements in battery technology hopefully this one might last for at least 3 or 4 years - if not longer.
To adjust the area for when light comes on, I found the following procedure worked best for me. Just before it got dark I set the three adjustable controls to 'shortest time on', 'maximum sensitivity' and the 'lux' to daylight setting. I then angled the motion detector until the light lit when I walked in the required area. Because getting this right can take several attempts, that's why I initially set the it to shortest 'time on' to avoid having to wait too long before each test walk. There is a plastic locking knob that you undo to angle the motion detector up or down. You can also turn it from side to side independently of this knob, but this adjustment is fairly stiff probably to prevent accidental movement.
As it got dark I altered the 'lux' sensitivity control until the light only came on for the level of darkness at which I wanted it to light. I then reset the 'time on' control so that the light stayed on for around 1 minute. Checking it over the next couple of days I found that it was pretty consistent in terms of the level of darkness when it lit. Very roughly speaking 700 lumens is the equivalent of an old 60 watt light bulb, but subjectively being 'cold white' it looks brighter than that to me. There is also a 1400 lumens version of this solar floodlight available which would be closer to 100 watts.
At the moment I'm going to rate it 4 out of 5, purely because I only installed it a few weeks ago and I'm in no position to judge its longer term reliability yet - but so far it's all good news.

Have only tried out and not fixed permanently. Nice and bright and looks sturdily constructed. By Pete on May 19, 2019
The Evo SMD Pro Solar Security Light offers mains equivalent brightness from a highly compact unit that offers truly exceptional waterproofing and can deliver 500 activations lasting 30 seconds each from a full charge. The activation time can be set so that the Evo SMD lights up from between 15 seconds and 3 minutes each time it detects motion. At 700 lumens the Evo SMD Pro offers double the brightness of our highly successful Evo SMD Solar Security Light (350 lumens).
The Evo SMD Pro uses a high performance rubber compression seal and numerous waterproof O-rings on the light body and motion sensor which guarantee superior waterproofing to IP56 standard.
During the day the Evo SMD Pro's solar panel charges its internal battery giving it the power it needs to light after dark. After dark the Evo SMD Pro will activate as soon as it detects motion. At dawn the Evo SMD Pro stops activating and starts charging again ready for the night ahead.
The Evo SMD Pro comes with a 1 year guarantee which is double our standard guarantee period.
I wish to install a security light facing my garage door, but the problem I have is that there are 2 trees in close proximity to where the light will be placed. So when the leaves are moving, they will trigger the light. Is there any way around this? I can't install the light lower then the leaves, as anyone will be able to get to the light. By Yvette on Apr 23, 2020
There is a sensitity switch that you turn down, however it will be a case of trial and error.

Hi. I’m looking at these solar security light to light up a garage area at the back of my house. Is this the biggest and brightest version of these lights? How would you recommend mounting the panel on to a pole as I want to mount both light and panel up high in a pole. I plan to fit 2 of these lights. Many thanks
By Andrew on Feb 17, 2020
The brightest version of these lights would be the elite. This can be found here . The lights are made to be wall mountedand we do not have fitting avaialble that will assist with mounting onto a pole, however customer have achieved this themselves.

I couldn't see an answer to this is in the FAQs, but how would you recommend I fix this to my garage roof, which is tiled and has a shallow slope south facing. I was wondering about glue, rather tha drilling into the tiles!
Thanks By Harry W Littlechild on Nov 26, 2019
I would not recommend glue and this would not be sufficient to hold the panel secure. It comes with it's own fixing brackets which are suitable for wall and roof mounting.
