Imagine you’ve just arrived home from the grocery store, hands overflowing with bags. Or perhaps you’ve just come back from the drycleaners and have a ton of coats filling your arms. Maybe you’ve picked your little one up from school and have your hands full of supplies.  Whatever the occasion, wouldn't your life be made instantly easier if you were to walk into your pantry, and have the lights turn on instantaneously? Well, with motion sensor lights, anything is possible


The new motion sensor functionality is the ideal accessory for your LED lighting system. Motion sensors are a convenient way to turn on LEDs without having to manually flick any switch. 

There are many new-age, innovative lighting products on the market – ranging far beyond the standard handheld and clip-on flashlight models. Each day new and improved ideas are presented to help make everyday life a little bit less challenging, and far more interesting. LED motion sensor lights really fit this bill, and once you discover why they’re so amazing, you'll struggle to look anywhere else. 


If you’ve clicked on this page, chances are you’re interested in getting your hands on a motion sensor light of our own.  So, if you’re interested in acquiring the best possible motion sensor LED light on the market, then you've come to the right place. We’ve hand selected our top four Hokolite motion sensor lights that we highly recommend to meet all your functional needs, as well as visual preferences. Following the listing, we will inform you on need-to-know checkpoints when purchasing a handheld light of your own, as well as shedding light via informative reviews of our top four favorites. 

Why buy a motion sensor light, and what is its purpose?


Motion sensor lights offer a temporary switch that turns on the illumination when motion is detected, within the sensor's field of view. The light will stay on for a period of time after the movement is detected, and will remain on while the movement occurs. The motion sensor switch will then also turn off the light after a period of inactivity. In addition to being extremely hassle-free, the automated function ensures total coverage and guaranteed access to illumination when needed. This can come in handy in a variety of instances, especially when struggling.

Reduce energy costs

The most valuable benefit of motion sensor lights is the savings made on energy costs. The motion sensor turns on only when there is not enough natural light in the area, resulting in significant power and money savings. For example, your motion light will not turn on during the day or when it is getting light out – no wasted electricity!

Extend bulb life

Ever tried turning on a light and nothing happens? Then you look closely and see the bulb has completely blown? Well, no more! The presence of motion sensors greatly reduces the light-on time of the bulb, meaning that the power source and bulb longevity will be extended for a greater period.  

Deter crime

Installing motion sensor lighting around your home or building is a great way to deter crime and vandalism. There’s nothing more alarming than suddenly being drenched  in light when you’re doing something you’re not supposed to. All lighting will provide some form of a deterrent to trespassers. 


Another amazing feature of motion sensor lighting is that you'll always have easy access to lighting right when you need it, which solves the dilemma of people forgetting to turn off the lights during their day-to-day work. This again, not only adds an air of convenience, but will ensure you’re saving money on that gnarly power bill.  


The Best Motion Sensor Lights on Market

So, now that we know why motion sensor lights are so important and ingenious, let’s look into which models we recommend you purchase. We’ll go into depth about each light’s functionality, as well as our reviews thereof. Trust us, these are the best in the biz!
