Motion-Sensing "Stick Anywhere" Night Lights, retail $39.99* (
Manufactured by Mr. Beams™ (
Last updated 08-02-12

(Cat fur is not included!!!)

This is a motion-sensing nightlight, designed to be mounted on the wall in bedrooms, bathrooms, hallways, etc. that automatically turns on when it senses somebody approaching or walking anywhere near it and then automatically turns itself back off approx. 30 seconds later. It is completely self-contained (battery powered); no need to have costly hard-wiring done.

It is also photoelectric - that is, it automatically turns itself off and will not trigger during the day, and turns itself on/arms itself (for the motion sensitive portion) at night.

The Motion-Sensing "Stick Anywhere" Night Lights come in a sturdy UV-resistant ABS plastic body; their high-powered SMD neutal white LED is protected by a thin, transparent, water-clear plastic window (or "lens" if you prefer, even though it does not focus, defocus, or otherwise modify the light in any manner), and they operate from four AA cells in each light.


* This price is for a package of three; including all of the screws, anchors, mounting brackets, and double-sided foam tape needed for all of them.

Feed the Motion-Sensing "Stick Anywhere" Night Light four AA cells first, and THEN you can avoid stepping on squeaky little rat tails at night.

If the wall you intend to affix the "Stick Anywhere" Night Light to is wood, (using the included mounting bracket as a template), start by drilling "pilot" holes with a 1/8" drill bit. Drive the included screws into these holes, and screw them in all the way.

If the wall is made from drywall (gypsum board), drill the "pilot" holes with a 3/16" drill bit first, insert the included drywall anchors into the holes, then proceed as described above.

Hang the unit by gently pressing it onto the little plastic tits on the bracket, orienting it so that the keyhole openings go into the tits on the bracket, and lower it approximately 1/10th of an inch until it stops.

Finally, if you are averse to drilling holes in your walls, you may use the included double-sided tape in leiu of screws.

There are no switches to fuss with or forget; once batteries are loaded, operation of the Motion-Sensing "Stick Anywhere" Night Lights is ***TOTALLY*** automatic.
To borrow a phrase from a popular infomercial, you just "set it and forget it" - it's easier than that though, as you don't have to actually "SET" anything. It comes on when motion is detected (and stays on for ~30 seconds if motion is not detected thereafter), then automatically turns off . And when it starts to get light, the unit will not "trigger" when motion is detected.

To feed the hungry, hungry (or "not-so-hungry" as it is pretty miserly with its batteries!) Motion-Sensing "Stick Anywhere" Night Light, remove it from its mounting bracket by lifting it up ~1/10th of an inch and then pull it straight out. Place it on a soft surface like a bed, orienting it so its concave opening faces down.

Unscrew the two screws with a medium or large standard screwdriver, or a coin like a quarter. Remove them, and set them aside.

Remove the back plate, gently place it on the floor directly in front of the basement door, and kick it down the stairs into the basement crawling with thousands or even tens of thousands of hungry piss ants who will see it clatter to the floor, think it's something yummy for their insect tummies, drag it to their nest, then find it unpalatable so they just squat over it and uranate on it...O WAIT!!! YOU'LL NEED THAT!!! So just set it aside instead.

Remove the four used AA cells from the battery compartment, and dispose of or recycle them as you see fit.

Insert four new AA cells into the compartment, orienting them so that their flat ends (-) negatives face the springs for them in each chamber.

Place the back plate back on, insert & tighten those two screws you removed earlier, and hang it back on the wall.
Aren't you glad you didn't kick that back plate down the stairs with all those starving ants with full bladders now?

The Motion-Sensing "Stick Anywhere" Night Light was meant to be hung up somewhere and not {vulgar term for having had intercourse} with, not a flashlight meant to be thrashed, trashed, and abused. So I won't throw it against the wall, stomp on it, try to drown it in the {vulgar term for feces}bowl or the cistern, run over it, swing it against the concrete floor of a patio, use a medium- to heavy-weight ball peen hammer to bash it open in order to check it for candiosity, fire it from the cannoñata (I guess I've been watching the TV program "Viva Piñata" too much again - candiosity is usually checked with a laser-type device on a platform with a large readout (located at Piñata Central), a handheld wand that Langston Lickatoad uses, or a pack-of-cards-sized instrument that Fergy Fudgehog uses; and the cannoñata is only used to shoot piñatas to piñata parties away from picturesque Piñata Island), send it to the Daystrom Institute for additional analysis, or inflict upon it punishments that a flashlight may have inflicted upon it.

So this section of the Motion-Sensing "Stick Anywhere" Night Lights's web page may appear more bare than this section of the web page on a web page about a flashlight that was born to be a flashlight and nothing but a flashlight.

When triggered by motion, the Motion-Sensing "Stick Anywhere" Night Light turns on for ~30 seconds; then automatically extinguishes if no additional motion is detected -- otherwise it will stay on longer.

Measures 9,744mcd on an Amprobe LM631A light meter.

This is a very wide-angle lamp, and if I've told you once, I've told you 31,054,500 times:
Wider viewing angles always, always, ALWAYS equal lower mcd values!!!

This video on YourTube shows the Mr. Beams™ Motion-Sensing "Stick Anywhere" Night Light working its magic.
As you can see, it comes on when I begin to walk past and turns itself off ~30 seconds later.

Motion-Sensing Night Lights (yes, three of them) were sent by K.W. of Mr. Beams™ on 04-20-12, and were received at 5:07pm PDT on 04-21-12.

UPDATE: 05-12-12
The double-sided tape issue will be addressed by the manufacturer (they're switching to a stronger adhesive), so the possibility of the unit summarily falling off the wall will soon be a thing of the past...because of this, I will be upgrading its rating to a full five stars at once!!!

UPDATE: 07-25-12
The stronger adhesive double-sided foam tape was sent with my Mr. Beams™ Motion-Sensing Under-Cabinet LED Light (which I also mounted using the new tape), as the following photo shows:

UPDATE: 08-02-12
The new tape has failed, as the following photograph shows:

Failure occurred at 4:09pm PDT on 07-31-12.
Since the new strip of tape was significantly undersized, I honestly can't blame the tape alone on this failure. I'm certain that a full-sized piece of the tape will indeed do the job and not fail.

Has reasonable intensity considering that it is fully self-contained
Motion switch really does the job
Batteries it needs are extremely common and relatively inexpen$ive

Unit *CAN* fall off the wall when using only the double-sided tape (this is what nocked that last ½ star off)
