We estimate the number of activations via the motion sensor to provide a typical battery life of up to one year. The battery life will vary depending on the application but this was our goal in the design of this product. Some customers will experience more than a year and some customers will experience less than a year.
Yes, most of Mr Beams lights are weatherproof, except for the Puck Lights which are designed only for indoor use. All of the other Mr. Beams products were designed with weatherproof seals to hold up in harsh weathers and water. Note- Mr. Beams products are water-resistant, and should not be submerged in water.
Lumens are the total amount of light that are emitted by a light source. More lumens means more light. Mr. Beams lights are anywhere between 10 lumens (Universal Night Light) and 500 Lumens (High Performance Floodlight).
Please make sure you have inserted brand new alkaline batteries into your unit. If you have another set around to test or have had your lights installed and it suddenly stopped working, please insert a new set of batteries. 95% of the time this issue is caused by old or drained batteries. Secondly, try testing your light in a dark closet or room as mentioned in the previous question to make sure that something in the environment is not activating the light. Once you have checked the above items, if the light still does not turn off, please email us and we will respond via email within 24 hours with further instructions.
These products may take a short time to stabilize when first fitting batteries. The light coming on as soon as the batteries are fitted is not unusual, but not always the case. If the light does not perform as required, perform a sensor reset as described above.
