I'd like to install motion a detector light in front of my garage so when i get home late at night the light will turn on. What are my options? What should I avoid?
A motion-activated security light sounds like a great choice for you. Higher-quality motion-activated lights can be aimed with good accuracy so they don't go off when cars drive by - they're only activated by people. They're handy for security purposes, sure, but also just very convenient when you're carrying bags inside and fumbling for keys in the dark!
