The bulb on the outside halogen floodlight ceased to function. We thought we might as well replace the whole unit for something a bit more attractive and less power consuming – we have the LEAF for that!

The old unit, in all it’s glory!

We replaced it with a solar powered LED unit. Unlike a lot of LED PIR floodlights available, this one actually turns off unless it detects motion, rather than dimming. The batteries are also replaceable, so when they are worn (they are consumable items after all) we don’t need to replace the entire unit.


The detection range is surprisingly large, it will stretch from the garage door to our EV charge point.
