Olafus 80W Outdoor Motion Sensor LED Security Light review
REVIEW – Living in the suburbs of NY is a nice life, but it is not one to take for granted. Many folks believe that the further into the suburbs they move, the less crime exists. I believe that crime occurs everywhere, and unless specifically targeted, setting up cameras and security lights creates a visible deterrent. I have installed several cameras, but I am missing a security light on my garage so that the driveway is properly lit and provides additional safety at night. Enter the Olafus 80W Outdoor Motion Sensor LED Security Light.
The Olafus 80W Outdoor Motion Sensor LED Security Light produces 7300-lumen excellent brightness with lower energy consumption, and can replace a 600W halogen lamp. It is IP65 Waterproof and can withstand harsh exterior weather like rain, snow, and sleet. It features adjustable angles of 355° up and down and 90° from side to side.
The Olafus 80W Outdoor Motion Sensor LED Security Light is designed like most LED security lights, with the LEDs on the front that includes a main light in the center and 2 adjustable lights, one on each side. The main center light can be adjusted up/down while the side lights can be adjusted side to side and rotated in any direction. The body of the light is plastic/ABS. In the center of the light below the main light is the adjustable sensor, with the light and sensitivity buttons on the bottom of the sensor. The connection wires are on the base of the light.
1. Recommended Install Height: Approximate 7.8 to 11.8ft.
2. Suggested Motion Sensor Head Angle: 45 degrees.
3. Can be used with a 1/2 Inch junction box.
PS: 90 degrees will make this motion sensor flood light too sensitive. Please adjust the motion sensor head to a suitable angle.
I decided to install this Olafus 80W Outdoor Motion Sensor LED Security Light on the front of my garage over the garage door. The garage is off-center relative to the driveway, so the light had to be installed a bit off-center as well.I chose the location and then drilled a 1-inch hole from the outside of the garage through to the inside.I used an outdoor lightbox and connected the mounting plate that came with the light. The mounting plate has a screw hole in the center to attach the light with a long screw. I also used the included gasket to help with sealing the connection and then screwed the entire assembly to the garage making sure to center the hole in the lightbox with the hole that I drilled into the face of the garage.I then threaded the wires on the back of the light through the hole and mounted the light. On the inside, I connected the wires to 12/2 Romex using wire nuts and ran the wire back to an existing electrical box. The circuit in the garage is a 20 amp circuit, so by default, I use 12/2 Romex.
Testing the light:
This Olafus 80W Outdoor Motion Sensor LED Security Light is very adjustable and easy to install. So far it works well and is really bright. I have no complaints. Well done.
