MPOW Solar Motion Sensor Light with #Giveaway

Disclosure: We received a sample product to help facilitate the review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

We have an alarm system installed, and we have big floodlights that come on in the back and on the sides of the house. The only lights out front, however, must be intentionally turned on with an interior switch. Now with our new MPow Solar Motion Sensor Light, that is no longer the case. This little light really is quite handy, and one of the best things about it... it was easy to install (no wiring required).


The MPOW Solar Powered Wireless LED Light is easy to install!

Look carefully at the picture above and you will see a little silver key (just under and to the right of the brand name). That is what you use to activate the light, so it's protecting the internal battery from turning on during shipping. Great feature, right? There are also two pillar hinge and screws included, and those are used for light placement. And that's it. Really...that's it! Once the light is screwed into place, it instantly goes to work.

The light has three modes...OFF, dim light, and high light. It is recommended to install the light facing south. During the day, the light should be able to reach it easily without shelter or glass hindering it. It will soak the light up that it receives during daylight, to run when it is dark. The light will run on auto dim at night, moving to bright light when anything moving comes close to it (within 3 meters). In the daytime, it will automatically turn itself off. If for some reason the battery does not receive enough light to charge, the directions note that the light will begin to blink (we have not had that happen, but I appreciate that it would).

The MPOW Solar Powered Wireless LED Light is waterproof IP64, heatproof, and durable. It detects motion within 10 feet at a 120-degree angle, and it offers up to 12 hours lighting time after one day of sunlight charging (be sure to charge it fully before first use).

The dim light (seen above) runs when it's dark until it senses motion (within 2 meters).
When motion is detected the bright light will turn on.

The light is really just a little thing, but it does emit a nice amount of light. This would not be good for the expanse we have in the back of our home, but it's just perfect for lighting up the front of our house, just outside of the front door, when motion is detected. We have snow on the ground now, and this morning deer tracks were coming right up to the door. I suppose the deer will be in for a surprise this evening if they opt to return. ;)

The motion sensor light we have on our garage died about a year ago, so we are definitely in the market for a new one. This one sounds like it would be perfect.

Easy install: No wiring and No tool require, easy to fit.

I like that it is Easy install: No wiring and No tool require, easy to fit... If it isn't easy to install... I can't have it.

Sandy Klocinski said...

The light is powered by a battery which is kept charged by a solar panel

Chrystal Mahan said...

We have a motion sensor light on our garage door so we can see when we go into the house. Our barn has a sensor light that goes on when it gets dark.

Ben Butler said...

This is so much more awesome than the outdoor lights I have now. I love that it doesn't go off, it just goes dim. That's great.

Celebrity VIP Lounge said...

I like anything that is easy to install. This looks like it would be great for our house. Amber N

Catherine Sargent said...

This looks like a great option. We need a new light for our back yard. The one we have now doesn't go off like it should.

Holy Ghost Writer said...

They work really well

Liz Mays said...

I have a light outside my door that goes on and off with motion. This one would be great for the other door!

Amanda Ripsam said...

I want to own one of these guys but I live in a two bedroom apartment maybe someday when I get a house I will have a sensor like that.

Coolmoms Cooltips said...

I like that it keeps powered with solar energy
we need this for my dark dark backyard

Heather @ Girl Gone Mom said...

I like that you don't need to hard-wire this. We need flood lights...can't find an electrician to call us back!

Aimee Fauci said...

I like that this is a motion sensor that goes from dim to bright. Living in the country it is dark out here! Much needed.

Ms. Latina said...

Love, love, love motion sensor ANYTHING. Great way to save money, especially because my sons tend to leave rooms and always leave the lights on.

Kecia said...

I like that it knows to shut off during the day, and is solar powered so you don't have to worry about replacing batteries or running electricity to it. This would be a great light above our garage door/driveway!

Joyce Lansky said...

I like the idea of being able to see when entering the house, without having to fumble around looking for switches. I like that the products are easy to use . . . and manufactured in, was it, ten countries?

debdenny said...

This is nice. Sounds like a good bit of security.

Pat Hatt said...

Sounds great, no muss no fuss as it just lights the way

Lori Gunn said...

I like the fact that MPOW Solar Motion Detector is easy to install and is solar operated. I will definitely be ordering one (how convenient that they are in the Amazon inventory) and hope to win another in the giveaway.

Pam said...

I like that it's solar operated! I have some solar lights in my garden and they're really nice.

Kristen Campbell said...

That looks like a cool item that any homeowner would love!

tute-bot said...

I like that I never have to climb up and replace the batteries because it's solar. That's one less thing to worry.

(tute-bot = christine)

Pauline Cabrera said...

I love all the features of this products. Sounds like a good buy.

Theresa Mahoney said...

My husband is a nut about safety and has motion sensor lights all over the house. This one looks like it gives off a good chunk of light that even he would be satisfied with it!

Binky said...

Looks like a good idea for safety.

Allicia said...

It looks like something that would be very easy to install.

Kiwi said...

Motion sensor lights are always helpful! I love the solar capabilities!

THat is so amazing and I love how easy it sounds to use; I would need some around my house!

Danielle said...

I really need one of these for my garage door or my porch. I need something to alert me when someone walks up to my house.

Lois Alter Mark said...

This sounds great. I really like having motion sensor lights around my house.

Pam said...

I really love these type of lights. We have a few around the outside of our house but we could use some more.

Susanna Barbee said...

Wow! This looks like an awesome device. I think every family could certainly use one.

Savory Experiments said...

We actually have one of these! Other than it still scared the daylights out of me when in turns on, I love it!

KrisJ said...

I like the no wiring.

dailymom said...

I love that it is solar powered, it would be great for the shed in our backyard!

Angela Zimba said...

Because its wireless I could use it on my Chicken coop to keep unwanted dangers away :)

Amanda said...

I love the safety that this gives - without wasting electricity! Perfect!

clc408 said...

I like the no wiring and no tool require, easy to fit installation.

clc408 said...

I learned that the bluetooth device enables you to connect two devices at the same time.

Shell said...

These would be so convenient. One of the street lights is right beside our house, so it's never really dark out front.

Kenya G. Johnson @ KenyaGJohnson.com said...

Wow snow already? Well it is November. I think I'm in denial that December is right around the corner. This would be nice for our front porch. The lights there are electric and motion and some times you have to wave at it so you can see to unlock the door. Worse is someone ringeing the doorbell and the light hasn't come on yet.

Wild N Mild $$$ said...

I like that it is solar powered - no wiring and no batteries.

I like that is uses solar power and can detect up to 10 feet away. It would be a great addition to our front porch. We could see who is outside when it's dark. We live near a busy bus stop too. The sun goes down sooner now too. Thanks. :)

Lori said...

This motion sensor light sounds like an easy to setup product with no wiring or tools needed. The big positive is that it keeps powered with solar energy & I would definitely try this around my house.

Kimberly said...

We would really appreciate the Motion Sensor on the light.

LauraJJ said...

I love that it will turn on at night, and automatically off in the morning! I always seem to forget to turn off the outside light in the morning and then it stays on all day! This would be perfect!

Ann B said...

I would love this for my house. I would put one in my back yard and by my door.

Melissa Vera said...

I would love this in my house. We often forget to leave a light on when we are out in about and come back in the dark. Nothing is worse than coming home to a dark house.

I like this :

But I wonder if squirrels would trigger it?

Kristi Maloney said...

This sounds like a neat motion detection light. Love that it doesn't have to be hard wired! That's a big plus.

Cheap Is The *New* Classy said...

We had a motion sensor on the side of our house that died a few years ago. This would definitely be nice to have.

Rena McDaniel said...

We have one that takes batteries and that gets expensive. I would love to have a solar one.

Anonymous said...

I like alot about this light but my favorite thing is that it is environmental friendly, rechareged by sunlight, over 12 hours lighting time after one day sun charge.

Wendy said...

I think the best thing is that it is solar powered! Doesn't add to the power bill at all.

Linda Szymoniak said...

I really like that the light is solar powered and will work anywhere there is enough sun daily.

Tara Overby said...

I love that it's weather resistant and easy to install!

Alisha Kostiuk said...

I like that it is heat resistant. Last year alone we went through two motion detectors that were ruined by the heat.

Unknown said...

I know about 5 men in my life who would love this. Dad, husband, and 3 brothers.. Christmas gifts are on their way!

Andree Symond said...

Solar motion powered lights really on rechargeable batteries to store the power and the batteries lose their ability to store a charge after a certain time period.
Also, the photovoltaic panel requires an unobstructed view of the sun in order to charge the batteries.
This means the unit must be kept clean and the batteries changed from time to time in order to ensure facilities.
