Everbright is a solar-powered motion-activated super-bright LED outdoor light. It’s advertised on television. It mounts outside of your home. It stays dimly-lit throughout the night at about fifty percent power. When someone walks in front of the motion sensor then it goes to a hundred percent power for about 10 seconds. There’s a couple of things you should know when you’re mounting it. It needs to be on a south-facing surface and it should be able to get about nine hours of sunlight every day in order to properly charge.
So I’m gonna go out there and I’m going to put it on a south facing wall and see how it goes tonight. But first let’s see what Bailey does to the packaging. Here. Fortunately my house does face south so I’m going to put the Everbright right here in the very front and let it charge for the rest of day and see how it goes tonight. It’s hanging down about three quarters of an inch. I had a four inch area to work with and it’s almost five inches. I don’t think that’ll be a problem. I should also point out that although the advertising highlights its ability to be stuck to surfaces with its adhesive backing, the instructions note that if you want to remove it later you’re going to probably damage the paint so most people should probably opt to use the mounting screws which is what I did.
The Everbright charged all day and it did kick on right after the Sun went down so I’m going to do some tests about how far away it actually works. It says 10 feet the instructions but my initial tests show that it actually worked further away than that, so I’m going to walk at five feet, ten feet, and 21 feet and we’ll see how it works. So in conclusion i’m going to say that Everbright works generally as advertised because it stayed on all night and the motion-detection actually reached beyond the 10 feet that they suggested.
So my first observation is it Everbright works as advertised. Now long-term how does it hold up? That’s for my next video. I’m going to see how it handles non south-facing locations and how it lasts over time so stay tuned for a follow up video where I’ll see how Everbright works long term. But my first impression is Everbright works.
