Great So Far Verified Purchase
We only installed the light 3 days ago so it is still in the charging phase so we have it switched off. I did test it after 1 day of charging it and was extremely impressed with the brightness and light spread that it produced. Does the job perfectly and makes for no more fumbling for the keyhole after dark.

I'd give it 5 but.... Verified Purchase
This is the second we've bought of this item. The first worked well for its 2 years or so and delivered good light at our front door. I'd give this one 5 but one of the LED's in the outer circle is dead. Already chucked the packaging so wont be returning. Good service. Prompt delivery.

Porch light defect Verified Purchase
On delivery the box packet was damaged. A corner was crushed in. I examined the light and solar panel and it appears no damage. How ever the light switches on for 30 seconds and then off for 3 seconds and then back on for another 30 seconds and then repeats the sequence for about 2 hours. I have tried a different position for the light in the porch, and the same sequence occurs. I phoned your help line and I am pleased that a replacement is on the way. May be the damage to the box has upset the microchip in the light. Regards, Roger Whitehouse

Very pleased but slight room for improvement Verified Purchase
I installed the light in our porch with the panel on the south facing wall outside it and it works like a dream. I was concerned that people walking past on the street after dark might trigger it but that's not a problem. If I had any negatives, and it's only a small one, the plastic clasp that secures the light to the ceiling is very fragile. The screw holes are so close to the edge of the clip that it's very easy to cause the plastic to split when tightening the screws. Perhaps making this clip more robust, or even better out of metal, would fix the problem and this product would fully deserve a 5 star rating.

The Solar PIR Porch Light is fantastic for when you can't find your keys to get in the front door! It will detect you approaching with it's 360 degree PIR sensor lighting up the porch before you get there. This versatile product is also ideal for shed's, summerhouses and whereever else you need a motion sensitive light without the expense of mains installation.
The Solar PIR Porch Light can be used for numerous different purposes. It can be mounted outside where it will illuminate up for 30 seconds as soon as its PIR sensor detects motion. Alternatively the unit can be installed inside to light a variety of outbuildings including garages, workshops, sheds, shelters, stables, tents and porches.

Frequently Asked Questions

Hi, is the light weatherproof? Thanks.
By Sara on Oct 11, 2015
This light is not weatherproof. It is intended to be used inside a shed and not outdoors.

Why can't you charge behind glass, my porch has a door
By Simon on Jun 20, 2015
We do not recommend it due to the UV protection some glass can have and because a window will only get a short amount of direct sunlight to the solar panel.

hello can you use this in daylight as well as in the dark?
By emma on Jun 16, 2015
This will only work in the dark due to the lux sensor which is inside the solar panel.
