I want to put these on my front porch to highlight some potted trees. I do not want the motion sensor feature, I want them on for about 6-8 hours each evening. Will these work for me?

The motion sensor feature cannot be disabled. These lights will not stay on that long due to the auto shut off feature. Your best bet for illuminating potted plants all night long is a traditional hardwire fixture otherwise you would be changing batteries frequently.

Can I disable the light detector? I want to use two over a pool table where it would be difficult to wire for ac current.

Answer:The quick answer is no. One would have to go to the circuit board level to "defeat" both the motion and the "is it dark?" sensors. But I think I know what you are after and that is; a) the creamy white LED 3500K color temperature these have vs. cold white and b) the combination of the reflector and optic that throws such a nice big even circular beam spot. The world needs what you want but here is something you could make work:
The 4xC battery ceiling lights have that same 3500K color and super-wide-beam optic system. When it's time to play pool you fool the system by unplugging the remote. The ceiling lights will come on. They will, however shut off after 30 minutes in case you're not home and don't need to waste battery life. But, there appears to be a way to tell this system that you are there and to stay on so read-up on that. Hope that helps.

Answer:Wrong product for your purpose.
This one is both motion and light sensitive. The motion driver is also directional and will not stay on for long periods.
Look for a floodlight that is battery powered with an on/off switch.

Answer:Chuck, I don't believe you can disable the light/motion detector. As there is no on/off switch for this light, I don't think this would be the appropriate light for over a pool table. I would recommend something like this but with an on/off switch instead. These lights work great for walkways/entrance areas because they detect motion and turn on before you get to the sidewalk/steps. They also do nothing when it is light enough out which is great for saving batteries. I love these lights for my application but I don't think you would be happy with them over a pool table.
