Perfect little lights!!!
November 23, 2013
I put one of these in my pantry, it's perfect!!! Good light for such a small package and the motion sensor kicks the light on as soon as the door starts to open. I'm going to put one in my shed as well. Highly recommend these!!!
Pros:
Sensor works perfect. LED gives off a wide ray of light. Not a beam. Takes 4 C batteries so it's going to last a long time.

Motion light
August 12, 2013
Our home has an apartment on one end. The entry door is shared by all. All to often we find the light has been left on. This light goes off with no motion. It is superb.
Pros:
Goes off by itself.

Let there be light!
August 6, 2014
Fitted one of these lights in a laundry space in a small apartment as there was no existing light and the washer and dryer controls were difficult to see. The light fitted the bill perfectly. No longer being kept in the dark and can see all the controls. We will now install these lights in the other four apartments we maintain for out of town patients having to attend the Texas Medical Center for long term treatment.
Pros:
Easy to install and a good bright light. Automatically turns off if no movement detected for 30 seconds.
Cons:
None

Happy with purchase
July 3, 2014
Purchased item to light small laundry room. Very happy with it. It provides enough bright light to see to throw in a load of laundry and get the machine running. It casts a cool white light, not like a fluorescent light, but not yellow like an incandescent. Perfect for its intended purpose. It lights up as soon as I enter the room and turns itself off quickly after I leave. I would definitely recommend this light fixture.
Pros:
Was relatively easy to install. Love the motion sensor aspect.
Cons:
Was a little tricky getting the back open to insert the batteries.

Terrific

Our town home is not wired for lighting in the laundry area or closets. These lights are a perfect solution. They were easy to install and provide an adequate amount of lighting in these areas.

Battery operated ceiling/wall light
April 23, 2014
Light works as it should, but is not applicable in a room where other existing lighting is present. The other existing light interferes with the action of the battery lights. I usually have my other lights on, and wanted more lighting over a table I use for picture framing. I was treated very nicely by Robin when I looked into returning this product, so decided to keep them and use them elsewhere in the house. This just goes to show you: treat your customers well, and it will pay off. It's too bad the lights don't work above the table when other lights are on. They give excellent work light. Jim Reynolds

Outstanding Product
March 8, 2014
Purchased to add light to closet. Works perfectly and is a lot less expensive than having an electrician wire for a light fixture & switch. I was impressed with the quality of the product and its packaging.
Cons:
None I can see.

Closet light

I use the light in the closet where I keep my supplies and business files. It is just what I needed.



Questions & Answers
By Maggie from Central NJ on October 14, 2013
Can the photocell be disabled, or covered to simulate complete darkness? I need a battery-operated light to brighten a cabinet that is in a dimly lit room.
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on October 14, 2013

Answer:
Maggie,

The photocell cannot be disabled. The light will turn on only when it's dark and motion is detected.

This is to prevent drain on the batteries and ensure the light working only when needed. If this light runs constantly, the batteries would become very expensive to replace.

By Linda from Dallas, TX on October 22, 2013
Would this work in a pantry cabinet, coming on when door is open? It has 4 pull out shelves, and cabinet is about 5 feet tall.
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on October 23, 2013

Answer:
Linda,

Absolutely. A pantry is one of the more common uses for this item. It will turn on when you open the door.

By Hannah from Michigan on February 16, 2014
Will one of these lights be sufficient to be the sole light source for a <80 square foot bathroom? It's an old office building and we can't update the wired in wall fixture without an electrician, so we're looking to see if battery operated lighting could get the job done.
By John from Baltimore on February 16, 2014

Answer:
It could; but it won't be bright.
By Louis from Warren, Connecticut on February 16, 2014

Answer:
Most definitely YES and if your bathroom is located by a dark hallway, it will brightly illuminate it. The batteries last for a very long time. The best part is their customer service.

By Donna from Boston, MA on February 16, 2014

Answer:
I used two of the lights In an interior hallway and they work great! Since the price is so reasonable and it is a quality product, I would use two. Battery life is about 3-4 months. Hope this is helpful.
By Jean from Fillmore, CA on February 16, 2014

Answer:
I believe two (2) of these LED latterly operated lights will work best. The motion sensor works well, too. My client has installed them in her closet and is delighted. Says it makes her smile each time she opens the closet door - like a friend waiting.

By Pete from New Jersey on August 16, 2012
Can I use this over an indoor shower? It is a large bathroom and the shower does not get enough light.
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on August 17, 2012

Answer:
Pete - yes, you can use it over a shower.
By Steve from Ann Arbor, MI on August 17, 2012

Answer:
We use it in a closet that had no light and it gives quite a bit of light. I don't see any reason why you could not use it in a shower as long as it is mounted where it won't get wet.
By Jainamma from Monroe, NJ on August 17, 2012

Answer:
Yes. My master bathroom does not get proper light from electric light, which is already installed. So I put this light on the ceiling of the shower and it works since 6 months. Battery was changed once. It works well.
By Valerie from Dumont, NJ on August 17, 2012

Answer:
It's a great light source but over time the bathroom moisture will most likely erode the light and batteries over time.

But for the great price that may be worth it for you.
By Mark from San Jose, CA on August 20, 2012

Answer:
Yes. The instructions specifically mention that it can be used in a shower.

By Theresa from Bedford, TX on November 22, 2013
Does it not have to be totally dark in the shower? That is what I want one for, but some light does get in the shower.

By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on November 24, 2013

Answer:
Theresa,

In order for the ceiling light to work properly, yes it needs to be dark in the space you intend to use it.

By Diana Costales from Rio Rancho, NM on January 1, 2014
I want to install this in an indoor storage unit without electricity. This unit is a rental so I can not damage unit by installing this light with screws and penetrating the framework. Can I use some sort of double stick tape to attach light? Or do you have other suggestions for installation so I can remove light when I no longer rent the unit? The light might be pretty heavy with 4 batteries so not sure what alternative I would have because screws. Please advise.
By Ernie Lucas from British Columbia on January 1, 2014

Answer:
I installed this unit to light up my stairs as the regular light switch is out if the way and this had been a big help to me. The unit is a bit heavy with batteries and I don't think a double sided tape would be strong enough to hold it. And even if it does taking the tape out when you leave the rental unit may create bigger damage than regular screw holes. If I were you I would use the supplied thin screws then cover up the holes when you take it out by spackling compound.
I highly recommend this product and will buy more later.
By Kevin from Belleville IL on January 2, 2014

Answer:
I used two of the lights for a 10x12 outdoor shed spaced evenly apart up on the ceiling. I attached my lights on a inch pine board that I mounted to the roof joist. I used two small screws to hold each light. The small screws will only leave a tiny hole in the wood you could easily dab up with a little filler when you remove the light. Not sure how well 2 sided tape would work because the mounting plate for the light is not smooth. I would use the adhesive picture holders instead of just 2 sided tape those may hold better. And the adhesive picture holders work better mounted on a wall up high instead of mounting on a ceiling.
By Dennis from Rockford, IL on January 2, 2014

Answer:
I have installed the light that I purchased in closet and it has worked flawlessly. I mount it under the shelf for clothes. My suggestion to you is command strips. They make a heavy duty version and you can always attach the light with two of them.
By Larry from Arvada Colorado on January 2, 2014

Answer:
I think that double sided tape would hold this light up just fine as long as you have a good solid surface to adhere the tape to.
