Heath Zenith’s SL-5597 bundles a motion sensor and a two-light halogen floodlight in a single package, but with a lot of extra features you don’t see in similar setups.
Unlike most motion-activated security lights, this one features “pulse count” technology that reduces the number of times that lamps are triggered due to wind and rain. In addition, the “Dual Brite” feature allows you to use it for low-level accent lighting in addition to the full-light effect you get with motion-activation (an included timer allows you to set low-light mode for three hours, six hours, or dusk to dawn-an automatic photocell deactivates the unit in daylight). The unit also includes a selectable timer that lets you set the amount of time the lights stay on after motion stops. Alternatively, it includes a manual override that lets you turn the light on and off at will via an existing indoor switch.
The sensor has a range of up to 70 feet and detects motion in a wide 240-degree range with a maximum 21,000-square-foot detection zone. The detection range is adjustable, too, so you can make sure the floodlights don’t go on every time a car drives by.
For the same floodlight in a white finish, see Heath Zenith product #SL-5597-WH-B. Accepts halogen bulbs of up to 200 watts (included).–Josh Dettweiler
