3aaa motion sensor light at dollar tree

well dont bother.
like i thought i was going to get a real pir sensor light for $1.
it senses changes in light with a cds cell.so if you walk into a dark room it wont work.
wasnt able to find it on their site to set a link and didnt take any pics yet.
they are blue or yellow,flat with 3 5mm leds and a hole marked sensor here.

Perhaps for the fun of it, you could mod it into doing something else?

the circuit is the basis for many items.i have a singing bird and a frog.neither work in total darkness.
its ok for a darkish cabinet where it may help but its usefulness is likely offset by the need to replace batteries often if it is like the frog.
