Here's a great find!

So one thing I don't like is that there are no outside lights (except the awning leds of course) that help to light the front door. I found this item that runs on batteries, is waterproof, is magnetic and has motion sensors so when you walk up to the door at night, the light illuminates the front door. Then turns off in 20 seconds. You can pull it off the base as it's held by magnets and use it as a handheld flashlight. The one hidden feature is it looks like a camera so it might help to scare a thief off when it lights up on him. Remember that you need to remove it before you drive off though as the magnet is not strong enough to keep it attached driving down the road. Great buy for $15.

Nice find.

I’m with you, a motion activated front door light is very useful. I am using this one.

Yep, I put up a small solar motion light and we love it. The only negative is it can't be turned off and stays lit when driving at night.

I like the more traditional porch light. I found this one with motion. it even tells you your 12v is low with a blinking red led.

gnach,
If you have the SolarBlaze brand of Solar/nightlight/motion detector that I have, just look to the right and below the nametag (on the same level as the motion detecting lens) you will see a small opening with a raised icon just above the opening (looks like a circle with the 11 - 1 oclock open and a line drawn down into it) using a paperclip that is the on/off button.

I installed one with an amber light. Serves as a porch light and a motion light.
