Question Best Motion Activated

Solar light. What do y’all recommend. Gonna light up my driveway and dark sides of the house. Or, will a lighted driveway help a thief?

No help on which light but just look around your neighborhood; if there are a lot of dark houses where would you go steal stuff from??

Indeed. There are a ton on Amazon. Was hoping someone will shed some light on quality vs quantity for the price.

Tagged, I've been looking at the same. All the Amazon reviews are mixed. Surely someone makes a good one.

You’ll notice on Amazon that some reviews are global. So a product bought 17,000 times worldwide may not be as good as it seems. You also have “Amazons choice” and “bestseller “ designations to sift through.

I had a TBHer to light up our 2 acres and driveway a few years ago with commercial grade lighting. Pretty solid equipment.

Thanks folks. Keep em coming. Oscar I could only imagine the paperwork I’d have to go through to get commercial lighting here in Katy, not to mention the cost. Would like ideas to light up the underside of the vehicle when someone crawls under it as well or possibly a motion detected alarm.

I have a ring motion activated camera/flood light. Very happy with the how well the motion works on both the camera and the light.

Only thing, you would have to run a circuit to where you want to mount it as the camera requires 110v.

Screen shot below, it caught a cat moving around.

Lol, understand but not that level of commercial. My neighbors would stroke out and HOA would be sending letters....lol.

Ok. So your held in check by HOA as well! Lol. Probably a good thing. Neighbors would complain when you started hanging mounts on your fence!

We like this one. I get cellphone alerts anywhere I am, and I can actually converse with the person who set off the camera. It records it.

You can tell when your wife's boyfriend drives up.

I'm pretty lucky, there's a street light, right in front of my house............
And my neighbor, has a pool in his back yard, with a motion sensor..............
So anytime, I go out to my car, his lights come on....(and goes off)
And I ain't paying.... for either one.......

We have street lights but they are dim enough that the top of my driveway is dark.

We have the Ring camera door bells front and back and the motion activated camera/flood light on our driveway. We bought the solar panel for ours that keeps it charged and it works great!
