Mr. Beams MB360XT Wireless Motion Sensor Review
Picture this scenario: You’ve just moved into your very own home, but you’re far from handy and don’t know anything about how to install electric motion sensors. Luckily for you, you don’t need to be an electrician these days when it comes to light installations.
If you’re looking for a quick and simple way to install lights in your home without the hassle of electric wiring, tools and specialized light fixtures, then the Mr. Beam MB360XT is for you. Let’s take a look at what this gadget can do.
Mr. Beams MB360XT Wireless Motion Sensor
The Mr. Beams MB360XT is a wireless battery-powered outdoor motion sensor, powered with LED lights. When the sensor picks up movement in the area it’s pointed to, a bright floodlight will automatically switch on. It switches off again after 20 seconds.
The MB360XT floodlight is used to illuminate house properties, as well as dark corners, decks, porches, long winding driveways and walkways.
Mr. Beams was founded in 2006 by David Levine and Mike Recker. The brand specializes in wireless indoor and outdoor lighting.
The two men came up with the idea when they were looking for a way to light up closets. When they couldn’t find what they were looking for, the pair developed their very own brand of unique, practical lighting supplies.
In 2008 Levine and Recker released the Mr. Beam MB360 wireless outdoor spotlight series.
Who is This Product for?
This product is for people who are shopping on low budgets and those who aren’t sure how to install technical wire operated light fixtures. It’s also perfect for the older generation as the LED motion sensors can be used on the ground, so there’s no need to climb up on ladders to get to them if you don’t wish to.
The Mr. Beams MB360XT wireless motion sensor can be used in areas where there is a lot of power outages as the lights are battery operated.
The lights are easy to install and remove which saves on time. The lights also require no maintenance as the motion sensors have LED light bulbs—this saves you energy. The motion sensors can also be used as extra security measures.
The MB360XT is not meant for anyone who wants to light up large areas like soccer fields or farmlands as the range is limited. It’s also not meant to be kept on for long periods of time as it switches off after a few seconds.
The Mr. Beams MB360XT Wireless LED motion sensor comes in either a single, dual or triple pack. The product comes with added mounting screws used to install the lights onto a wall. The dual pack also includes two mounting bases. You can view this YouTube video to see what’s included.
The Mr. Beams MB360XT Wireless LED motion sensor doesn’t come with any added batteries. These will need to be purchased separately. The durability might be problematic as the lights have hard plastic exteriors that can shatter when there’s a hail storm or other harsh weather conditions.
