Motion Activated Wireless LED Porch Light – Hammacher Schlemmer Catalog

by The Review CrewApril 18, 2012

If you are like me you love paging through catalogs for new and interesting gadgets to buy!  One of my favorite catalogs is the Hammacher Schlemmer catalog (I’ve included a link so you can get a free one just in case you feel the need to join me.).  I’ve been (putting off really) getting a flood light for the back door of my house.  The idea of wiring up a light isn’t high on my list of things I would like to be doing.

I thought about going with some type of solar/battery solution, but didn’t see anything that really popped out at me.  The bulbs on traditional lights are kind of expensive so I knew I’d really like to go with an LED solution… I looked around online for a bit and then put it off again.

Oddly a few days later I read a press release about a Porch Light that was motion activated AND LED!!  I noticed it was from my fav catalog Hammacher Schlemmer and zipped to their website to check it out.

So the nitty gritty:

  • Four C Batteries (No wiring… SCORE!)
  • 150 Hours of actual operation (So translation… years! How many times is it going to go off?)
  • No Wiring!!! (I know I said it before but wow!!)
  • 2 Screw Installation (This took 3 minutes to install)
  • Motion Sensor (It shuts off about 30 seconds after movement has stopped, further more it won’t go on in the day time).

So they are about 40 bucks a piece if you order them from Hammacher Schlemmer.  Now that I have it installed I have to say that it is the perfect solution to my back door.  It lights up a good part of the back area, there was no wiring (I think I may have mentioned that before) and I don’t have to replace the batteries every month.  I’m really happy with the unit, it is a solid little light and I think it will serve me well for years to come.
