The attractive and functional Motion-Activated Gooseneck Solar Barn or Shed Light is an easy, flexible way to illuminate sheds, barns, greenhouses, garages, carports and even sheltered porches.
With a traditional gooseneck wall mount, the beaded glass dome looks hand blown. The low-maintenance cast aluminum powder-coated fixture has a durable, rust-resistant matte brown finish.
Here's how the light works: mount the Barn Solar Light where you need it and mount the solar panel where it will get the most sun.
While it's ideal for outbuildings (sheds, barns, greenhouses, gazebos, even covered porches), it's also a great way to add light to entry ways, as long as the light is positioned in an area with partial covering, such as eaves.
An 8-foot cord between the lighting fixture and solar panel provides flexibility in positioning both the solar panel and fixture for your needs.
When turned on with nobody in the immediate nearby, the motion-activated Solar Barn Light works at 60 lumens (about equal to a 20 watt incandescent bulb). When it senses anyone with a 15-foot range, it automatically switches to full power mode of 120 lumens (about a 35-40 watt incandescent bulb).
The Gooseneck Solar Barn/Shed Light will bright as long as motion is detected (such as when people are working in the area) or for 45 seconds (such as when one quickly enters and exits the building, such as to retrieve or store an item.)
On a full-solar charge, the light the light provides 8 to 10 hours of reliable illumination.
One advantage of the motion-activated version of the light is that it will help give you bump and trip-free access to your outbuildings even if you choose or need to mount the light away from the doorway.
This light offers lots of options, particularly if the visual appeal of the fixture is important since most shed lights are purely utilitarian!
