I don't have a street light near my house which I'm thankful for, particularly with my bedroom at the front of the house. The downside is that when I drive in the driveway and get out of the car, the path is very hard to see until I get through the gate where I have installed small solar lights along the edge of the veranda to light a path to the back stairs.
That was until now.
It's not logical but when I climb a ladder the legs just buckle and refuse to move so when a job requires getting up a ladder I have to call in the help of mum and dad.
They very kindly gave up their time to help me out with a couple of height related projects and this is one of them.
The spot light is solar, you can see the solar panel on the left - this side of the house faces West so it will get plenty of sun to charge the batteries. The sensor was directed to face the driveway and turn on when I drive up the driveway. There are two lights, one is facing the frontyard and the other is facing the back. Basically either side of the gate as I come through.
Now I just have to wait for it to charge up and wait until night.
