    It performs it’s duty
    Our doors were replaced for our apartments. They made our hallway much darker. I didn’t want to turn on a bright hallway light. This light does the job.
    Cons:I would like to change the sensitivity. It comes on when I don’t think it’s that dark

    Happy with stair lighting
    We bought two LED battery operated step lights for our stairs and are very happy with the amount of light, the motion sensor activation, and their discreet appearance. As we just recently purchased them, we do not know how long the batteries will last.
    Pros:amount of light in a dark stairwell
    Cons:The adhesive tape was not satisfactory. We had to attach the lights with the screws that were provided.

    LED Battery Operated Step Light
    This lighting is very useful in sufficiently lighting the staircase without putting on the overhead light.
    Pros:see above

    Overall Satisfaction
    I like how the lights only activate when the room is dark, not trying to go off with every shadow in the room. The only thing that I wished was better was I wish it had a better range for the sensor eye. You have to be within just a couple of feet for it to go off.

    More uses then just a step light
    I purchased this fixture for my bathroom not as a step light but more as a night light. I only have 1 outlet in my bathroom and it is tied to the vanity lights so I can not have a plug in night light for those late night visits. This fixture worked perfectly!! It provides just enough light to see but not to bright that it hurts your half asleep eyes.
    Pros:Excellent light output and motion sensor works wonderfully!
    Cons:Double stick tap not strong enough to hold fixture for very long in my damp bathroom. The tape may work better in a non damp location.

    Great outdoors
    We use this step light to alert visitors to the step in our brick walkway in the front of our house. We mounted it on a small wood stake at the side of the step. It gives a soft glow until someone is about 4 feet away and then turns to full light, making sure the visitor notices the step. It was a simple solution to a safety problem.
    Pros:Easy to install. Have only changed the batteries once in 3 years.

    Works JUST as advertised
    I have used these lights for 6 months now, without changing batteries once. They do a wonderful job of providing safety lighting for a darkened stairway.

    Like a runway in our stairwell!
    I bought these to light up our u-curved stairs. We love them! I put a few on each set of stairs and the lights kick on when we just start walking up the stairs. The effect turns out to be like a runway that lights up as you approach–very fun! Light is perfect (good light but not shocking in the middle of the night). They are off during the day but will kick on when we walk near them up the steps (because my stairs are very dark, even in the day). I can’t say enough about them. They each take 3-C batteries, so that will add to the price. But we turned off the nighttime glow (so that it conserves batteries and only kicks on when motion is sensed) and we set them to glow for only 20 seconds after the motion is sensed–which is supposed to conserve power. What I love it that it’s not wired at all, so no electrician or wiring concerns…and we screwed them into the wall in minutes. And the sensor is very sensitive, lighting up a few stairs ahead of us (as opposed to not lighting up until you’re right in front of them). Fabulous lights!!!!!!
    Pros:Everything: sensitivity to motion, turns off during the day, can change settings from 20 seconds or much longer, can set them to glow all night or only turn on upon motion, uses standard C batteries (no hard wire or rechargeable or specialty batteries), very bright without being shocking at midnight, effect is like a lighted runway on-demand!
    Cons:Nothing. Couldn’t be happier

    Affordable Solution
    A great solution to my dark double staircase – absolutely affordable when compared to the costly/overkill alternatives.
    Pros:As stated above.
    Cons:Mounting system could use a little work – not the easiest to mount without using the double stick tape which I don’t really trust.

    Stair light.
    It was OK however the adhesive doesn’t stick and they keep falling off the wall. Wished they were smaller and even would be good if only the night light function worked as the stair light is not necessary.
    Pros:It works like they were described to work.
    Cons:The adhesive strip does not hold so the lights keep falling off the wall. The light fixture is too large and heavy. It sticks out too much. Smaller batteries and less light would be OK to make it more compact. Would even like it if it were only a night light without the brighter stair light.

    Light up your stairs, deck, anything
    As you get older, you need to see better. What a joy to have stair lights without all that wiring cost. I placed one on every other step, and what a difference. Plus they go off automatically, or you can set a glow cycle. Great!!!!
    Pros:Nice looking, good battery life….no wiring

    Great Performance and Price
    We needed lighting on three steps leading to our master bedroom. We wanted motion and dimming which these lights have. Installation was easy and quick. The lights perform as described and are of good quality. We are very pleased with this very cost effective solution.
    Pros:Low cost High performance Attractive

    Real safety plus for hall step
    This light provides the safety of a motion activated light for the single step between the sections of our home. The motion sensor easily picks up movement well before one approaches the step from either direction. The light is bright and well positioned downward toward the step. This purchase is our second because the one we purchased over a year ago has functioned so well. The battery lasts about a year, making it very inexpensive to operate.
    Pros:active area of motion sensor direction of beam battery life
    Cons:can’t think of anything

    Battery operated step light works great!
    I ordered two of these for my basement steps. They work great. They provide plenty of light. Since I’ve only had them a few weeks I can’t yet say how long the batteries will last.
    Pros:Avoided an electrician call. Fast and easy to install. Provides plenty of light.

    LED Step Light
    Well made, effective motion sensor. Easy to mount and aim.
    Pros:Quality construction and operation as advertised. Provides safety lighting automatically, and can be placed anywhere. One improvement would be another setting for length of time unit is on. 20 second setting is about 2X what would be needed, for temporary stairway lighting. An included or optional articulating mounting bracket would be useful. Otherwise velcro seems to work.

    Pegasus stair lights
    So far very pleased. I purchased first one at Sears and when they did not have any others or know if they would stock any more again, I ordered 2 more online here.
    Pros:Works as described. About a 3 to 4 ft. pickup range which is just about right where I have them mounted. Easy to install and lighting for my needs is good.
    Cons:Nothing at this point. Still have one more to install and hoping it works as well.

    Battery Operated Motion Step/Stairs Light
    We have tried several step/stair lights, and this is overall the BEST we have come across. I just ordered two more to give as gifts for people up at our campground. This is an AWESOME product.
    Pros:Works as it says. Detects motion BEFORE you get to the steps…in BOTH directions when placed on the middle step.
    Cons:So far NOTHING.

    Great light
    This light is just what I wanted. It lights the stairway into my condo so that I do not have to turn on the energy wasting spot lights.
    Pros:Small; energy efficient

  • Rated 5 out of 5


    These lights work as described and love them. Will be so helpful next time we’re without power for 7-10 days! A real safety product. Plan to buy more.
    Pros:The night light plus the brighter light upon motion, and that these features are programmable.

    Great lights
    I am extremely pleased with the lights, even better than I expected. I put one at the top of my deck steps and one towards the bottom. I always had to use a flashlight to take the dog out in the dark and these work perfectly. The only issue I have is with the screws…very poorly made. Two of them had the heads break off. Fortunately we had some extra screws at home.
    Pros:Puts out excellent amount of light.
    Cons:Poorly made screws

    This product was exactly what I was looking for. It is very responsive to motion, and throws a great deal of light on the top 4 or 5 steps. I am very pleased with it and have been recommending it to my friends.

    THE stair light!
    Had been looking for years for a great stair light. These little lights really light up the night. Easy to install and low maintenance.

    I purchased this motion light for the stairway on the house. Prior to installation, I took it to the boat and put it on the companion way steps. Rave reviews after using it this weekend. It allows for entry into a previously dark boat. Now I need 2.
    Pros:Motion activated. Short duration on.
    Cons:C batteries. Duration unknown.

    Works well, but have since seen more reasonable lights that appear to function as well.
    Since ordering and installing, have seen brighter (more LEDs) for a similar or cheaper price…these do meet our requirements, no complaints.

    Deer Eating Your Azaleas?
    The web (and Lowes) is full of nostrums to drive away deer, but this little light is another way. For years I have tried Irish Spring Deer Off, homemade egg, milk and jalapeno recipes to keep deer from eating my azaleas and Indian Hawthorne, the latter must be like Weed to them since they cannot resist them. I had forgotten what their flowers look like until recently. Following up on some suggestions that surprises like noise, loud music, sprinklers, etc. work at least a little while, I tried putting a couple of the little battery powered (read: no extension cord) into some Indian Hawthorne. Bingo, the deer do not come close. I think the flash of intense light in their eyes is blinding at night and since they rely on eyesight as well as scent to avoid predators, plus the flash is sort of random when it kicks on, runs them away. Indian Hawthorn looks better than ever before and even had some blooms on them. Bought about 8 of these little guys and have them around the foundation planting. No problem with rain or weather either. Worth a try, if you have deer vandals.
    Pros:Bright, reliable, and long lasting for service

  • Rated 5 out of 5


    They are so neat. I use three outside the bedroom. When I take my dog outside in the middle of the night, if she has to go, the lights light up my pathway. I also use one in the bedroom which is great when I enter a dark room at night and don’t want to turn on the light and wake up my husband. I also use one in the dining room which I walk pass to go to the laundry room. It lights up my pathway so I don’t need to turn on any light switches. They really work awesome.

    Great product
    I put four of these in my spiral staircase. They work great! Each light comes on as my kids work their way around the staircase. They make a dark room easily accessible during the night time hours making it much safer. I am very happy with this purchase.
    Pros:The lights come on and allow ample time to navigate the stairs before they turn off.
    Cons:After a month I have no cons yet. So far the original batteries are still working strong.

  • Rated 3 out of 5


    No screws, anchors or double side tape
    The product is fine. I was disappointed that no installation items were included, required a trip to hardware store. Went on-line for installation instructions; instruction sheet in box was too difficult to understand.
    Pros:Product performs as advertised.
    Cons:No installation materials, poor instructions.

    Questions & Answers

    Question from Barb:

    Would this work in a closet? The push-on types are always left on by accident, and then they're gone.

    Answer from Pegasus:

    Absolutely, this would be great for a dark closet. The motion sensor will trigger the light when the door is opened.

    Question from RICHARD:


    Answer from Pegasus:

    It has an expected battery life of over one year when alkaline batteries are used.

    Question from Eleanor Kobrin:

    Does the photocell remain on throughout darkness or can it be disable?

    Answer from Pegasus:

    When it is dark out, the step light emits a low glow of light. When motion is detected, the step light increases in brightness for a set period of time. The photocell cannot be disabled.

    Question from Trudy:

    Can you turn on this light and leave it on and is there an on/off button or is it strictly used as a motion light?

    Answer from Pegasus:

    Trudy, It cannot be turned on and left on. It does not have an on/off switch. It turns on automatically to a low glow mode when it is dark out. Then, when motion is detected it will increase in brightness. After a set amount of time it will then decrease back to the low glow light level. When it is bright out, the light will automatically turn off to conserve battery life.
