Solar Motion Sensor Light
Solar Motion Sensor Light is a great alternative to traditional electric models and can help to save you money. By using a motion-activated type, you can save even more power by only keeping your home’s exterior lit when it’s needed.
We use Solar motion lights to brighten up dark corners of your property, including front porches, driveways, garden paths, sheds, fencing and more.
Their sensitive sensors are activated once a person or animal enters its range, triggering a bright light that can help to ward off intruders or keep you from tripping on your way to the door.
Whatever your needs, there are several great models to choose from that will keep your outside areas lit all night long.
However, these models are classified in to 6. Each with its own unique feature and capability. The different types of Solar motion sensor light are listed below.

Features & Considerations
The black Dyxin is small and discreet and offers two options for installation: wall mounting or garden stakes. The spotlight head can be adjusted 360 degrees, so there’s no need to worry about finding the right angle for installation. This level of versatility is rare in a solar motion sensor light.
The motion sensor can detect a person or animal within a 30-foot range, one of the largest ranges on the market. The sensitive PIR motion sensors also operate with angles of 150 degrees. Once activated, the light can illuminate a distance of up to 33 feet.
The solar spotlight comes with four different light modes, including long lighting, dim brightness and auto switching. The light can be programmed to turn on or get brighter once a person is detected, or to stay lit for the entirety of the night. Whatever your needs, the Dyxin is adaptable.
Each light comes equipped with an attached Solar Panel that can be adjusted in a 360-degree angle for maximum efficiency.
Its battery takes roughly 4 to 6 hours to charge fully and will last for 8 to 10 hours. If placed in full sun, the Dyxin can easily stay lit from dusk till dawn on a single charge.
