Solar Flair Lighting knows that safety of your family and visitors is important to you! And, because areas needing security lights are often difficult to access with electricity, solar spot lights and solar flood lights are ideal solutions. An additional benefit: solar security lights work during electrical outages.
Our solar security lights are reliable, are low maintenance, have virtually zero operating costs and require no electricians to install. Most solar spot lights and solar flood lights let you set how long the light will stay on, and the sensitivity to motion and darkness levels. The majority have cords between the solar panel and the solar lighting fixture, letting you place spot lights or floodlights in shaded areas such as porches or even inside sheds.
Solar Spot Lights vs. Solar Flood Lights:
Solar floodlights are stronger, light larger areas and can detect motions within greater distances and greater ranges. Solar spotlights are meant for doorways, entrances and other areas where a lower level of light is appropriate. Flood lights generally detect motion within a 180 degree range and at distances of 35 feet or more, while spot lights usually detect motion within a 100 degree range at distances of 25 feet or less.
Both can usually be adjusted to stay on between 10 seconds and several minutes. Some models provide continuous light and stay on for hours or more each night with a full solar charge and will work on stored power for shorter times after periods of clouds or rain.
Which One Should You Get:
A solar security flood light with a halogen bulb should have strength of 30 to 50 watts; LED flood lights should have between 50 to 80 LEDs per fixture. Solar spot lights need 10 to 20 super bright LEDs to strongly light a more limited area. Remember that a remote parking area or large backyard needs stronger light than a doorway to your home. If you plan to use the fixture as a shed light, you should not use a halogen bulb because of their high heat levels which make them unsafe for small structures, particularly those housing flammable or combustible materials. LEDs, in contrasts, are cool to the touch, CFLs are also safe alternatives.
Solar security lights usually are set at eight feet or higher from the ground. In comparison, our solar accent spotlights are usually placed low to the ground, although many models can be mounted to both flat and horizontal surfaces.
