Tips on Operation

The MB980 motion sensor LED Ceiling Light has a photocell inside that activates the LED when it is somewhat dark to conserve battery life (aka, a “dusk-to-dawn” sensor). It does not have to be installed somewhere in complete darkness as the light sensor will enable the light if the detected light level is low (with a light intensity below about 3.5 lux at the light).

Testing Your Light

Test the MB980 any time by putting in fresh batteries and placing in a dark room. Leave the room to avoid activating it. The light should shut off after a minute or two and should turn on when you re-enter the room (the motion sensor may need time to settle after putting the batteries in.)

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Will the light work on an outside porch in the winter?

    This has more to do with your batteies than the LED light. Alkaline batteries perform very poorly when they are below freezing. If you use rechargeable NiMH batteries then the light can operate down to -20C or even lower. I know this becasue I have this light powered byTenergy Centura rechargeable C cells in my (unheated) garage. During last winter the outdoor temperature can drop to 0F (-18C) at night, and the light still works.

  • How's the brightness?

    I have one in my storage building it is a 10 by 12 at 8 feet it lights all of it. the other light is in a screened in porch light is mounted 12 feet high lights up a larger area with plenty enough light to get around in If you want something real bright get mr. beam spot light.

  • Will this work if mounted outside for on a deck area?

    It will technically work outside however be mindful that any ambient light could prevent it from operating when motion sensed as it has a photocell eye that prevents operation during the day. A streetlight or moonlight could keep it from operating. Others have covered the photocell to ensure it operates regardless of outside influences. This does require the unit to be opened for modification therefore be aware that DIY passion is required. My application is a interior pantry that doesn't see any light so the point is moot for me.
