Full Disclosure – This unit was provide to me by Anear with the express purpose of review and was not purchased.


I was contacted from Anear about reviewing the Anear LED Spotlight with PIR Motion Sensor for the blog.  Since I had the perfect spot in the garage to install it, I took them up on the offer.  Currently in our garage, I have a switched light that we always end up leaving on since the switch is in a very bad location.  I installed a florescence light there to help with the energy savings, but the light is still on 24/7

First off, the packaging was simple.  The box included the unit, some mounting screws and a manual.  The front face of the light unscrews and exposes the battery compartment.  That has two clips that release the back of the cover and allow you to insert the 4 D batteries.  It all snaps back together very simply.

Once the unit is back together its ready to install where ever you need it.  3 screws mount to just about any location.  It’s a drop dead easy install!  In my case, I mounted it in the garage, very near the light that was always on.  I found the stud in the celling and mounted the 3 screws directly into the studs.  5 minute install

Bright enough to see in the garage at night and enough light to fill the space without waking up the neighbors.  Light goes off after 30 seconds of no activity.  Easy to use, easy to install and easy to maintain.  Documentation says about 3600 activations for each set of batteries.  If it comes on 10 times a day, that would get me about a year.  About $9 worth of batteries!  http://amzn.to/1Mj1EH2 

After a week of use,  it’s a keeper!
