Just bought 1 today 4/2/08, there was a previous blog for a halogen light @ walworths for £6.50 but I prefer this as it comes with a movement sensor and people added on the last one halogen floodlights often have faults, this 1 comes with a 3 year warranty as well, just in case.

Wonder if it's a movement detector or an Infra red (Heat) detector?

These things are the spawn of Satan and should be legislated against.

Thirty years ago, you could see the stars from my back garden, nowadays all you see are poorly adjusted floodlights that come on whenever a cat walks by or the wind blows.

I'm no environmentalist but even I can see the amount of juice these things must use when they are on all night, which some are round here.

Absolutely useless devices that ruin the night sky for everbody.

Don't buy it then - I have one at the back of my house and for that price I'm definitely buying one for the front too.

These things normally have a switch that you can put in the OFF position when you want to look at the stars.

I'd one fitted recently and opted for the 150W PIR Floodlight for £7.49 @ Wickes :)

Funnily, 150W PIR floodlight costs £2 more than 500W PIR one.

There is legislation down south that does deal with light pollution. We don't have it up here at the moment, but it's in the pipeline.

If the light causes issues for you in your property, you can complain to the Env Health Dept at your local authority.

And if you think a silly light is a real deterent or an actual obstacle to a proffesional theif, then you must be behind the times too.

Light can be handy when you need it...whether it be so you don't break your neck out the back or the burglars need to see or choose not to set it off.

Like car alarms, they go off no one bats an eye lid, I recently broke into our car in a busy hospital car park and plenty people seen me as it was a bit of hassle what with door seals being a bit more secure nowadays but only one looked slightly concerned....none of them knew it was my own car.

Also I have set the house alarm off recently on a few occasions for various reasons, no one bothers.

But the Aldi light......the answer to everything.

Yeah, But it only switches YOUR light off, not everyone elses. The problem with not being able to see the stars is caused by thousands of these stupid lights causing the sky to glow at night.

And they do absolutely nothing to deter criminals. 99% of the time they go off because of cats, wind, and people walking within a mile of the house. And I bet people who have them fitted gave up bothering to check for burglers after the 4th or 5th false alarm.

Mind you, if they advertised them to Daily "there's a burgler/asylum seeker on every corner" Mail readers, they'd sell millions.

Oh and for the record my parents do leave their back door unlocked most of the time. But then again their local area did have a massive 6 crimes reported last year.

Light is a huge deterrent in fighting crime. It's the equivalent of unmasking a hoodie.

you could easily save that £2 in a month, 500w halogens eat electric. A lot of these used to get set off by cats, wind, trees ect

Im pretty sure most of the light pollution is caused by street lights and cars.

I really can see why people use these, as I agree they provide good security, but I also agree with the guy who thinks they have fallen out of Satan's bottom. The problem for me is when people mount them inconsiderately - I have a guy over the road who has one mounted under a front bedroom window which is supposed to light up his drive, but it must be pointing horizontally across the street - it illuminates my living room on and off with a 10 second delay, not at all annoying while i'm trying to watch telly at night LOL. Another couple have one stuck half way up on the back of their house, which faces my back garden, and it's a really sensitive one that seems to be activated by things as delicate as cat farts, this flashes on and off all night, for one minute at a time, illuminating my bedroom while i'm trying to sleep. I did ask them both nicely if they wouldn't mind angling them down at the ground, but no luck.

Maybe i'm turning into Victor Meldrew ;o)

[COLOR="Navy"]Yes, but this one comes with 3 years guarantee, which is not standard.

My own experience is that the bulbs on these things fail after a year or so. The screw which you need to undo to replace the bulb has seized solid by then, so it's easier (and not much more expensive) to replace the whole unit :-([/COLOR]
