Security in the home is big business nowadays. This LED floodlight from Ustellar can be attached anywhere you need, like above a garage door, and it will turn on automatically on detection of movement. You can adjust how sensitive the sensor is, how long the light stays on, and the distance of detection on a panel at the back of the light.

The great thing is the price, at just less than £15 delivered to your (unlit) door. Just enter the code PIRFLOOD on checkout.

The 30W LED light equates to 150W halogen bulb, and uses far less power to do so.
The only downside is that it must be installed properly by hardwiring to the mains power of your home or business, which unless you have experience in this could be a an extra cost.

In all honesty, you're probably saving money keeping the inefficient 500w halogen unit. The frequency of replacing led units, in my experience, is ridiculous.

I was going to replace the one remaining halogen pir unit I have but it's outlived anything and everything else.

I even changed one unit that had been up for 15~20 years. Required one bulb change in that time, with an led unit roughly 3 years ago. I'm now on the third LED unit.

Luckily the led units fail or sufferer water ingress before the warranty expires and they can be replaced for free but you still need to fart about removing, taking back and reinstalling.

A 20/30w unit will likely be good enough. 50w units all failed prematurely for me (have been through 4 before I gave up!) and now only use 10 & 20w units.

OK, I'm off my soap box now...

Ordered, thank you
guys i am looking at getting one.. is there one that i can just stick to the wall with NO hardwiring one with a sensor and waterproof Thanks
Edited by: "goody" 10th Oct
I need few but with warm white light (3000)...any good deals please?
Stupid question maybe but can a three pin plug be used for internal use?
Lidl have a similar 20W light in on Sunday but it has a remote control and 6500k temp. Same price, more features but less powerful.

That would be a 50W (plus) LED, so have a look at these: amazon.co.uk/Sec…PSK

Please note that the code won't work with this as totally different brand/shopfront.
I'm interested but reviews (specially on quality) put me off

Yes
anyone guys can recommend a stick on light sensor that does not require hard wiring
Claims IP66 in title, but sensor is only IP44. From experience water will soon damage the sensor unless in a really sheltered area.

Yes but use a 3 amp fuse.
Thanks for posting, been waiting for a good deal, 6 ordered. Just need some brackets now, but begrudge paying £10 each for when the lights are so cheap!

The worst PIR floodlight I've had was a halogen unit which lasted just over a year before the aluminium case disintegrated and the hinged glass came off when I was changing the tube.

I've had one LED PIR fail after 2 - 3 years, the driver died, a replacement driver would have been about £8, but I've converted it to a 240 volt LED instead. My 50w led pir is 3 years old and still fine so far.

How old was the halogen unit?

The remaining halogen light I have in use will be nine years old now.

None of my LED units have gone beyond 3 years.

In most cases (pun not intended) water ingress has caused the failure.

With the 50w units (from eBay), two of them were up for possibly 3 months and then they started to fail. Both failed within a month of each other.

I've had two of the home bargains 20w lights fail, now on the third, under warranty replacement. No sign of water ingress just don't operate. (This is where the original long term 15~20 year halogen was fitted)

I've had two LAP branded 50w units from Screwfix fail. Longest was almost a year but first unit failed within 6 months.

Then there's been a variety of LAP branded 10w units (Screwfix) that have failed, I've lost count. Just get them replaced when passing over if their stores but must be roughly 6 that have failed.

One of my pals had had numerous failures with led pir units, in both exposed and covered locations. He's of the same opinion that the quality isn't there but they are effective, when operating properly.

I'd recommend applying grease to the hinges and Access screws for halogen units. You shouldn't have any trouble if you do that. Most of the fasteners rust in a very short time, in my experience.

Not a fan of LAP, while I may have been unlucky, I've had several of their led light bulbs fail on me, other makes have drastically outlasted them in the same fittings. Not a fan of cheap halogen tubes from screwfix either as the out of the last box I bought from them a few years back, only two worked and didn't last very long, the contacts were flimsy and broken on the rest.

The halogen unit that disintegrated was just over a year old, and was bought locally from either B&Q or screwfix, but can't remember which. I'd imagine the aluminium it was cast from must have contained impurities for it to rot so quickly, usually I'd expect a PIR to last about 10 years here (I'm a few miles from the coast).

There's certainly more to go wrong in a LED floodlight as in addition to the LEDs, you've usually got a driver which is essentially a constant current switch mode power supply. The power saving is substantial though, unless it is rarely on. On the up side, the PIR has to switch less current, and isn't subjected to power surges from a halogen tube blowing.

My 50w PIR that's not been a problem to date only cost me £12 on clearance, but had previously sold for £60+ which is probably why that unit has been fine.

The two LAP 50w units that I had output an amazing amount of light. It was almost like daylight! I've read that the drivers are usually the weak link with 50w units.

I managed to pick up an led that converts the old halogen tube.

Unfortunately, I've only got one new switched halogen unit left so I'll just use it inside the shed.

No PIR shown in the photo but description says
"Motion detector with adjustable sensitivity and adjustable range (1–8m)"
I spoke too soon, FFS!

This one has failed, was only put up in the summer!

Back to home bargains tomorrow...

It states in the description that it has a motion sensor, it is is on the left in the picture. Doesn't state if it is a PIR or microwave, I think probably PIR though.

Don't have one, but according to the instructions:-

Completely agree. There is a reason why one LED fitting is £15 and the next is £50 for example. The market is FULL of cheap poor quality LED fittings, you get what you pay for. The Chinese have effectively ruined the user experience for the LED market, most non branded fittings aren't fit for purpose.
I bought the Lidl one, the lamp itself seems to be well made, and the light output is OK, I also found the remote useful for setting it up after installation.
What I didn't like was that there was no connecting cable supplied, and when attaching a cable, it had to be done using just push in connections of the leads inside the cable gland, there was no screw fixing, or even crimping. The outer diameter of the cable had to be pretty thick to seal the cable in the supplied gland, otherwise it was liable to let in water due to the gland pointing upwards when fitted.
I am a retired electrician, so I had a pretty good idea of how to get around the problems, but I can imagine many that have purchased them, and who don't have electrical knowledge, will be making a mess of the fitting, resulting in the light not working, or a poor life span of the product.
It does state in the instructions that "The electrical connection must be established by a qualified electrician or a person trained to perform electrical installations", but it doesn't state what size, or type of cable to use for the installation. I always understood that solid core cables should be used for push connectors, not multi strand cables, as multi strand cables can split and push back, unseen, when trying to insert them, and multi strand cables are the most likely cables to be used in the installation of this type of lights. Most solid core cables are of the flat type, and the supplied cable gland seems to be designed for round cables, not flat cables, so water ingress is likely to be a problem if flat cables are used. I can see a lot of these Lidl ones being returned to the store because people are unsure of how to fit them, or they have fitted them incorrectly due to the lack of detail in the instructions, or the lack of a supplied cable of the appropriate type.

This was one of my reason for choosing the Lidl one, (plus the 3 year guarantee). At least the Lidl one seems to be fully ip66 protected, (if fitted correctly), as the sensor is built into the lamp screen.
