Solar Security Lights

by : Armand Hadife

Solar security lights are the ideal protection for your home and property They will welcome your friends and discourage intruders. They are also known as solar motion detector lights. The passive infrared motion detector is the heart of the system and is designed to sense heat generated by humans and animals.This component monitors the surrounding area and triggers the light when any movement is detected. On most models, the sensitivity and angle of the sensor can be adjusted. It is important to fine-tune it; you don't want the light to set-off every time a cat or a dog penetrates the detection zone. In general, the lighting is produced by a 6v halogen bulb, but on some recent models LED's (Light Emitting Diodes) start to appear on the market. On some advanced products, in addition to lighting, an alarm will sound when activity is sensed.

Solar Security Lights are easy to set-up. No cabling work and no electricity are necessary; all you have to do is to decide on the site you need to protect and fix it. When installing your solar security light, as with all solar products, make sure the solar panel is exposed to sunlight; this will guarantee that the battery is correctly charging. Most solar security lights come with a separable solar panel that you can attach to a convenient and sunny place.An important thing to remember when installing a solar security light is to fasten it sufficiently high, to avoid any tampering by eventual intruders.
