Austin Adkins says in his review of Motion Brite- “The motion sensor to turn/keep the light on is very wide, but the range from the lighting portion of the unit and ahead is a bit lacking.
Monique Aguilar claims in her Motion Brite review that it did not work as advertised. She says that the problem is that you have to be within 18″ to activate the motion detector.
1) The sensor doesn’t react as it should to light/motion change. She says this because she ordered 2 different units (the other from a different manufacturer) and put them side-by-side in a closet. Motion Brite doesn’t turn on as often/easily as it should.
2) Changing the batteries is tough once the unit is permanently installed (and it comes with a self-adhesive to do so).
Jackie Morales, who purchased Motion Brite complains in her Motion Brite review- “Only one light really works, one is really bright and the other is very dull you can barely see anything. Sometimes it takes too long to register to turn on”.
Kathleen Beck is disappointed with Motion Brite and writes in her Motion Brite review that the light should stay on a few seconds longer. It drains the battery really fast and the magnets are not great and fell off the wall after just a few days.
Another user Andrew Wood mentions in his Motion Brite review that in in higher light settings the sensor does not respond to your motion. He says although this definitely helps cut down on battery loss t makes the sensor not as consistent as he’d like.
In his review of Motion Brite Clayton Mccoy states that the sensor doesn’t work even if the room is slightly lit. He says his usually only work at night when all the lights in the kitchen are off.
