- Apr 17, 2003Some of these products are the Brinkman SL-7 Home Security light which are solar, motion detector light fixtures. They include a motion detector, battery, solar module and two DC three Watt halogen illuminaires. They sell for less than $90 and can quite literally be installed anywhere the sun shines. Not a bad idea.SBT Designs

Here in Farm & Ranch country we often see the PV panel / battery / light combinations used as a security light over the ranchs front gate, which might be a mile or two from the house. These will sometimes have a motion sensor that switches on the light when a car or truck approaches the gate. Ive also seen them used at highway construction sites to operate signal lights in a unit that is mounted on a trailer for portability.
I dont know exactly where these come from, I only know that they are out there waiting for you to discover them.
Sounds like a neat idea, to actually teach the resorts guests about alternative energy in a passive education manner. Good luck.

Thanks Randy! To an extend the hotel wish the panels to be seen, if they are
beautiful in design. This will be a conservation topic for their guest and
show their commitment for a pollution free environment. The low voltage
lights are also being considered. I'm also looking for a distributorship
with the supplying company.
