Securing a solar floodlight to a screening panel created ambience in this outdoor entertaining area with no ongoing cost.

The project


After some research and a bit of trial and error, I found these Arlec 5W Integrated Solar Powered Sensor LED Floodlights. I installed these lights onto timber screening with some D.I.Y. creativity and there is no ongoing cost.


Created a small platform to attach the light to my screening panel.






Full brightness when the sensor is activated. It drops down to a lower-level light afterwards.




Placed another light on the window screen. Very impressed with the brightness.
