Questions & Answers

3Questions6Answers

will it detect my cat?

Asked by SLY February 7, 2016
1
Answer

Yes, the light control will detect the motion of a cat or dog or animal. Based on your description though it depends on the angle of where the light control is located. So depending on the height and the distance from the control, the cat would need to be in the detection zone to trigger the light to turn on. If there is not enough distance from the light control (for example if it is too close to to a wall or door) it will not be able to see low enough to see the movement.

Will this work with LED bulbs?

Works as designed
Lights up when approached from any direction. Moderate ambiant light prevents this light from turning on. I wish that this feature was adjustable.

Does the job and has worked so far. A little on the pricey side for what it is (compared with other listing that I viewed after ordering) so *hopefully* it will last longer than others. No way to know that when pressed to give a review less than 30 days after purchase, though.
