DIY Solar Motion Sensor Security Light


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.
