Are you really concerned about safety in the surrounding areas of your house? If so, using solar-powered motion security lights can definitely help you!. You can get it easily in the market, but if you have a tight budget and curious to learn, then this project is definitely for you.
In this Instructable, I’ll guide you on how to make a solar-powered motion sensor LED light by using cardboard, few LEDs and a cheap controller board.
The great advantage of this light is the combination of two of the most efficient and green technologies: LED and Solar. The light harvests solar energy during the day time and stores it in a Li-Ion battery for later use at night.
The sensor range is 2-5 meters with a sensing angle of 120. when the motion detector is activated the light shines up to 25 seconds.
