Thought it would be fun to recount my dramatic first experience with outdoor motion sensor lights when it was newly installed on my neighborhood streets several years ago.
But first, my name is Davi and I’m from a remote rural of Macapá, a northern region of Brazil.
Being a very curious person, I have always wondered how it would feel to know about every creepy things that crawl and move through my backyard and every thing going on in my neighborhood.
Those were my thoughts as I took my daily nightly walk around my neighborhood. It is an habit that has helped me over the years to reflect, meditate and breath a daily dose of fresh air away from my economic worries.
That night, I gave myself a project – to see the newly installed motion detector street security lights the local news papers reported that could help curb crime in my community.
As I was walked through the avenues that fateful night, I noticed all the street lights were off and I was beginning to marvel at how irresponsible our municipal government was and how they had ripped every home owners of their hard earned money.
Much more so, I began to question how much they had paid the local newspaper reporters to make them publish such fallacious article about the completion of the project.
I remembered vividly how they burnt on all cylinders trying to convince us of the need for what they called one of the newest and latest technologies in fighting community crimes.
Reporters called it the intelligent street security lamps, smart outdoor motion activated sensor lights, etc.

… Smart Motion Detector Street Lights Gave Lights…
Looking at the dead light-less lamp posts from afar, I shook my head in dismay as I thought “… we’ve been fleeced once again by the government.”
Surprisingly, as I got within few meters to the first street light posts, a miracle happened, there was a short transient humming or buzzing sound… and then… there was light!
Being rural and naive, I was too stunned to react as I stood rooted to the same spot. What my grandmother told me in church when I was much younger flashed in my head.
I wondered if it was actually true that I have light within me that shines wherever I go and wherever there was darkness I would be the light…
I summoned courage and walked on and then realized as I got closer to each motion detector light post, the lights turned on and as I walked further away, the lights turned off after some time.
Beaming with smiles I realized there was no rip-off after all… Just that I did not understand what had been done, why and how motion sensor light works. I almost couldn’t wait to get home to discuss with George – The Technician.
George went on to explain to me what outdoor motion sensor lights were and how precisely they work. He also talked about outdoor solar yard lights with motion detector.
Motion Detection Sensor Lights – Great Energy Saver
They form a vital part of comprehensive security surveillance systems, for both homes and businesses. Different types of sensors are used in motion detectors spectrum:
Passive infrared sensors which look for body heat. No energy is emitted from the sensor. Active ultrasonic sensor which sends out rhythms of ultrasonic (sound) waves and measures the reflection off a moving object.
Remember: Motion sensor security lights are energy-efficient lighting systems. They cost less to run and help reduce carbon emissions which contribute to global warming. You will be helping the world when you use energy-saving motion sensor security lighting systems.
Motion sensor outdoor lighting will calm your fears as it automatically lights up a dark garage, a dark sidewalk or even a dark area of your yard.
Whether you’re coming home at night, have to navigate a dark, icy sidewalk or wonder about strange noises in your back yard, you will be safer when any nearby motion activates your outdoor lights and they switch on.
