Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JP It works and is useful
It has three settings. Light, is when it lights up if something large comes within about 20 feet of it. Off (it does nothing.) Alarm. If anything comes within range of it, it screams loudly. This mode also has switch for delay or instant. You would select delay if you want a few seconds to run up to it and turn off the alarm before it sounds.
The LIGHT mode only lights when the room is dim or dark. It does not light up in bright light. (Makes sense to me.)
Both Light and Alarm wait 30 seconds before activating.
It uses three AAA batteries. The mounting bracket allows the device to swivel.

The motion detector light is a great value. I purchased the device to deter deer from my plant beds. Since it was not listed for outdoors, I placed it in a clear zipper lock bag. That did not seem to affect its operation. So far it is working and I plan to purchase more for the same purpose. The 2A batteries are more affordable than similar devices that require 9v batteries or converters. It is compact and easy to hang on posts, sheds, buildings or trees.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Senek Could be somewhat better
hile the device has a fairly loud (if not "screeching") alarm to go with its bright flashing light, it seems as if the manufacturer has made it all too easy for someone intent on breaking into a home to just flick the switch to turn the device off.
Putting the switch out of plain sight or, better yet, required a code to be entered into a keypad would increase its effectiveness considerably.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ali Love it
LOVE this little alarm. My neighbor's cat won't stay out of my side yard. This little alarm detects that furball the instant it approaches it's favorite pooping spot. The alarm is darn loud and kitty can't run away fast enough. The alarm sounds for about 20 seconds and shuts off, so I don't have to do anything.
Had mine for about two years and it stopped working (it's been sitting on the ground for 2 years). Went to Depot to get another but it's not in stores, so here I am to buy another. Nothing like it for $20. It's awesome.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rose BEST PURCHASE EVER Installed in garden to keep deer away
They really scare the deer. It was necessary to install then angled toward the ground because they are quite sensitive and picked up neighbors hundreds of feet away walking or mowing. Even then they go off randomly, birds? We don't know but THIS IS THE BEST PURCHASE I EVER MADE. ABSOLUTELY NO DEER DAMAGE THE NIGHT AFTER I INSTALLED THEM.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by linda Security?
This is a nice little night light. I put it above my front door and it works well to light the way to the door in a soft, friendly sort of way. But as a light to scare away intruders? I don't think so. BUT, in all fairness, I have to say that I didn't try the light/alarm feature because I didn't want to bother my neighbors. True, I could have tried it in an inside closet, but I didn't. The alarm light might be brighter and the alarm could be horrendous but I don't know. But it is good for helping you see your way to the front door at night. I am recommending this as a NIGHT LIGHT only--not as as INTRUDER DISCOURAGER!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MikeyBOY Handy little light for dark and remote locations
This little battery operated light fixture is a great way to keep remote steps, walkways , porches and dark corners sufficiently well lighted. An infra red light keeps the device ready to automatically turn on when after dark you pass in front of the device. I have placed these out in areas where I have no electricity . They are really a great value. They easily mount. It uses regular AA alkaline batteries. If you plan on using this device outside in the very cold weather ( well below freezing) only lithium batteries will work best.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JJJJJJ No detection with this one...
Item does not work. No light. Only a siren and then, not every time it should. Overpriced and does not work correctly? Not buying from this company again... Now have to return it to Home Depot. Another wasted trip for nothing...
