The Sensor Light is motion-sensitive and light-sensitive, and is comprised of three LED bulbs encased in a plastic housing. A motion/light sensor is embedded in the front panel of the housing, and a four-position slide switch on the side panel may be set for “Off”, “D/D” (dawn/dusk), “On”, and “Motion”.
